The Concept Barracuda Is Up For Sale Again.
Updated August 3, 2014
Do you ever wonder what ever happens to those concept cars that actually work, and drive? You know the one’s that were the fruition of a big idea, but then somehow either trickled down to becoming something lesser than that great idea, or just simply get’s shoved into a room to collect dust for the rest of eternity. Well it seems like there’s a concept car that actually made it out of the design hall, and has once again found it’s way to day light.
Who remembers the Dodge Barracuda Concept Car? This was the car the Dodge/Chrysler was thinking about building back in 2007/2008 that would essentially be the little brother to the Challenger, and be slightly more appealing than the new Mustang, or Camaro that was to come out in a few years. But alas, the economy took a steep nose dive in early 2008, and American auto makers were pretty much suffering from lack of funds to support themselves. So, what happened to all of those concepts that we saw in the 2007 & 2008 auto shows…………….nothing. They were put away, cast aside, and or dismantled for the simple premise that no one really thought that there would be enough money to explore these new, and exciting concepts that lay before us. Well, it seemed like the Barracuda Concept was kept in one whole piece, and it’s making it’s second appearance into the real world. An automotive company by the name of Exoticclassics has announced that the 2008 Cud Concept is up for sale once again.
For the most part, any and or all of the official documentation on the Cuda Concept is in tact, and it explains where this car came from, and who were the people responsible for it’s birth so to speak. The Barracuda was “conceived” at the Chrysler Headquarters located in Auburn Hills, and then at which point the toned down, Slim Fast chassis was handed over the to Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters in Fountain Valley California. After that initial life breathing moment, the Cuda was on it’s way to various car shows worldwide, and then like all concepts it was put away. It wasn’t heard from since. As it stands now, Exoticclassics is selling it for an undisclosed price. In order to put a bid on this official “One of a Kind” car, you would need to go to their website for all of the details. One last thing you should know about the Cuda, the last time it was purchased, the sticker price was a hefty $159,500 bucks. That’s a Barret Jackson price right there!
