Whenever I read Letters to the editor in some magazines, people complain about the relevance of the Lamborghinis, the Enzo Ferraris and the SLR McLarens: no-one can drive these things quickly, so what’s the point of having them?
DESCRIPTIONIf you're looking for a truly mind-boggling muscle car, you've definitely come to the right place! Like most great cars, the idea for the Viper 'Cuda was born from a unique combination of stress and innovation. After losing his pristine Hemicuda in a divorce, the future owner of Time Machines decided to take a spin in one of his good friend's Dodge Vipers. While he was out enjoying Detroit's brawniest badass, he began thinking how nice it'd be if his remaining asset, a '71 Cuda project car, drove as well as a modern sports car. And the rest, as we say, is sweet, octane-fueled history! The foundation for this killer build was a 20K mile 1995 Dodge Viper, which makes this Cuda's current mileage of 31,906 accurate to its drivetrain. And naturally, every bit of that snake's mechanical goodness made the transition 100% intact, with the Roe Racing supercharged V10 sending a dyno-proven 547 horsepower and a pavement-splitting 623 lb./ft. of torque to the car's fat rear wheels. The interesting thing about Time Machines is the way they performed the Viper 'Cuda conversions. Instead of a simple engine swap, or a pro-touring style adaptation, this '71 'Cuda's body is actually mated to its Viper donor chassis as one structure. At the edges of the aerodynamic floors, a beefy chassis is complete with a Borg Warner T56 6-speed manual transmission and a Dana 44 limited slip differential that's filled with stout 3.55 gears. Pound on the four wheel disc brakes and they're more than up to the task of reeling in the engine's 547 horses, lap after lap. Throw the car into the corner, and handsome 18 inch wheels spin 275/35 front Michelin Pilot Sport performance radials in front of 335/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport performance radials. As you probably already know, this Plymouth's interior was the biggest challenge; but the car's transformation from 5-passenger muscle to 2-passenger sport is seamless in appearance.
