Hemi Cuda Revived by Droptop Customs
text size: A- A+
We shall start our story in the engine compartment, as a muscle car is allowed to be anything but an “all show, no go” ride. The vehicle is powered by a 6.1-liter SRT8 Hemi V8 powerplant, which has been gifted with a Mopar Catback exhaust system. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which has received a pistol grip shifter that was supplied by Hurst.
The vehicle should have no problem tackling difficult bends, as its suspension has also been upgraded. The aftermarket developer has installed a KW coilover suspension, with strut tower braces for both the front and the rear axles. The badass topless ride sits on BBS lightweight alloy rims that come in a 20-inch size, using a multi-spoke design and a black finish. The rims are wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires.
Droptop Customs has paid a special attention to the vehicle’s exterior, which not only had to use a ‘Hemi Cuda image, but also offer an overall “go-fast” look. The car comes with juicy elements, such as a special front grille, a shaker hood, as well as a HXC rear bumper. The convertible is dressed in a yellow & job coat, a combination that turned many heads back in the 70s’.
The interior hasn’t been forgotten either, with the tuner installing multiple custom items, such as a Kicker entertainment system and an electric-powered black soft top.
