Created by Brazilian designer Rafael Reston, the Barracuda Concept is a sportscar that follows the American Muscle Car revival trend and takes inspiration from the 1971 Plymouth model.
The Cuda Concept was created to following the current trend of reestyling, iniated by Ford Mustang, and followed by GM Camaro, Dodge Challenger.
Among the design details are the very high belt line, 22-inches aluminum wheels and some styling cues that remind of the Mustang by Giugiaro concept car, such as the front end layout and the orange-black color scheme.
Most of the body panels, including the hood, spoilers and side panels, are in carbon fiber. The 2+2 coupe project is based on the Chrysler 300M platform, and is powered by a V8 Hemi Engine.
Based on the exploratory design sketches, the 3D surface modeling process was carried out using Alias Studio Tools 13.5 and Rhinoceros 4.0 for the interior, with final rendering in Bunkspeed Hypershot.
