I believe that many of you have heard the rumors that started last year, about the return of one of the most iconic American muscle cars from the golden era of the late 60s and the early 70s, the one and only HEMI `Cuda! From the very moment the information was launched, it is needless to say that it immediately gained a lot of attention. Today we are going to show you a video clip that will give you a short glimpse into the appearance of the new 2015 Dodge Barracuda SRT, and we`ll give you some new info about it.
The first rumors were saying that the new Dodge Barracuda SRT will be actually a replacement for the Dodge Challenger SRT, but luckily, this has not been confirmed (I`m sure that many Challenger Hellcat fans, such as myself, will be devastated to see that really happening). Surely, there will be numerous changes and improvements, such as smaller platform, that will result with 300 pounds less, and of course, it means that the new Dodge monster will be even faster than the Challenger Hellcat.
So, the general conclusion is that the changes will only come in a terms of modernization of the new American muscle, but the basics will actually stay the same, because the car is meant to be made in a retro-style, which won`t deviate much from the original model that started its life in 1964.
And of course, since it is meant to be a Dodge Challenger Hellcat successor, it should be obvious that under the hood there will be a real monster. Actually, the customers will be able to choose between three variants: the 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar motor that will have a direct injection, the 5.7 liter HEMI V8 that will boost 570 HP, and the most powerful version, the 6.2 liter Supercharged HEMI that can deliver 660 HP!
What more can we say? We cannot wait to see the return on the streets of one of the most iconic Detroit muscles. And until then, check out the following video and get an image how this retro monster will look like!
