Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

We got a chance to take a good look at the Legendary Motor Car's --
Supercuda! This car is outstanding and beyond its killer looks, it's a pure
beast. This is the fastest street legal Cuda in the world! Peter Klutt and
his team at Legendary Motor Car achieved something that many would never
believe. To propel a 3500lb car built in the 70's to 208MPH is a wonder
onto its self.
