1970 Plymouth HEMI Cuda For Sale at $3,200,000

Funny how it took 40 years for people to recognize how special these HEMIs were and are as they now are truly the most valued of all muscle cars. What are we talking about? Well, a 1970 Plymouth HEMI Cuda is being offered for sale at a cool $3,200,000.

We know that the Cuda is a desirable beast, but even in pristine condition, we’ve never head of such an asking price for one. Even though it doesn’t have 1,000 horsepower and twelve cylinders, it will set you back about one and a half times what a Bugatti Veyron costs.

The car has an amazing track record: It was built (finished) on August 1st, 1969, and was the prototype the company used for the workbook that presented all other Cudas around the United States. It’s also the first E-body produced, made at build by hand at Chrysler's Claire Point, Michigan facility. It was never supposed to be sold, but it did eventually find its way into the hands of the public.

The Cuda last only built until the 1971 model year, in both coupe and convertible versions. The street version for the Hemi was developing around 450 hp and nearly 500 lb-ft of torque at the time (the prototype is closer to 400 hp), with a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmissions. There were 8 engine options, with the all-importan Hemi coming as a $871 optional extra.

If you have a $3,200,000 lying around the house and don’t know what to do with them, you might want to consider owning this piece of HEMI history. For more details and contact information head on over to

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
