Usually when we hear about a car sold for million of dollars we automatically think about a classic Ferrari. But in this case we are talking about a totally different car, a car that during its time it made no impression. But now, after more than 40 years the real value of the car has been finally recognized.

Of course this is not an ordinary Plymouth Hemi Cuda, don’t worry not all of them will be sold for $3,200,000. But this car in particular is very special. It was finished on August 1st, 1969 and was the first E-body produced. It also was the prototype the company used to promote the Cuda on the US market. So, with that amount of money you will buy a piece of history.

Hemi Cuda was built only until 1971 in both coupe and convertible version. The engine is the Hemi Cuda developed a total of 450 HP and nearly 500 lb-ft of torque and was offered with a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmissions.

I wonder if Ferrari would be making a based production for this car? Well, I guess it would sell like hot cakes if they will built a special edition for this car.

As expected from this vintage car, it will definitely cost million. I wonder if this was a replica or the original version?

Yeah, the collectors will most likely be the ones going after it. Besides, it would probably be just a museum piece and not even drivable. Not really worth the price.

$3.2 million for a car that didn’t even become popular during its run, I think that that one is a bit too much. Probably the only ones who would be happy about this one are the automotive history nuts.

Actually, I am getting a bit of what he was saying on that one. Really, the Cuda didn’t sell a lot during its initial run, despite its capabilities, but this one is certainly going to be an entirely different thing.

At first, I wonder why a 70’s car weighs a $3,2 million on it. But as I see it, there no
doubt that this car is really expensive. Its like you’re buying a history from it.

What does the author mean "a car that during its time it made no impression?" Seriously? The Hemi ’Cuda broke the 0-60 and the quarter-mile records when it was first introduced; how is that not significant?

Hmm, considering the actually worth of this car, history and all, I would say that this one is definitely worth the price. Though, even if I have the money, I probably wont by it still.
