SuperCuda vs. Enzo

Built by LMC, the SuperCuda is a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with, among a plethora of other mods, a twin-turbo Viper V10. You can see the full build photos here.

To prove that this 1000bhp+ monster wasn't just a show special, Chrysler engineers inspected and tested the car for handling and build quality, before the boys at LMC took it to the banked oval at Chelsea Proving Ground to race it against an Enzo. The footage below is truly remarkable.

The performance of the SuperCuda is simply phenomenal - it maxes out at 208mph, and had plenty more horsepower but, as the tester said, 'it was running out of aero and I was running out of cojones'.

The Enzo managed to keep its dignity by topping out at 218mph...
