It’s not everyday that you see a Plymouth Hemi Cuda, much less one pit against a motorcycle, but that’s exactly what went down at a local dragstrip. A standard 1970 Hemi Cuda is powered by a 7.0-liter Hemi V8 engine generating 425 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque, but this green monster boasts a supercharged and / or NOS version that’s producing 925 horsepower. Is it enough to beat a modified Suzuki GSX-R1000? Well, the 500-pound bike does make 157 hp and 77 Nm of torque. Read more for the video and additional information.
“The Plymouth Barracuda, affectionately called Cuda, is probably one of the most coveted muscle cars of the ’70s, with a reputation that exceeds the life of the Plymouth brand itself.
