The technological marvels continue with a Digital Guard Dawg pushbutton start and AutoSound Bluetooth stereo complemented by an amplifier and subwoofer, all seamlessly integrated.
However, it’s not just about luxury and power; this Cuda is engineered for performance. With custom-installed 4-point seatbelts, power rack and pinion steering, and a chassis that includes XV engineering powder-coated K-frame front coilovers, Chassisworks watts link rear suspension, and a Strange 9-inch rear end with 4.11:1 gears and positraction, every aspect screams precision and control.
Safety and handling are paramount with Wilwood 6-piston front disc brakes, 4-piston rear disc brakes, and a custom-fabricated stainless steel exhaust system ensuring efficient expulsion of spent gases. Additionally, the electric emergency brake adds a modern touch while maintaining functionality.
Completing the package are the stunning Boze Tach painted aluminum alloy wheels, 19-inch x 9-inch in the front and an impressive 19-inch x 12-inch in the rear. LED headlights and taillights illuminate the road ahead, while a custom-made stainless-steel gas tank and sending unit ensure a seamless and reliable fuel supply.
