Default Cuda Concept

Has anyone seen these renderings by Rafael on a concept 'Cuda? He blends styling cues from the 1970 and 1971 'Cudas with exotic European sport cars. I'm not sure if I like it.

Not bad. But when I first saw it, my first thought was that it looked a lot like the new Camaro.

I personally like it. I could see having one Cuda and one Challenger.

bit to "future" designed in my opinion, the lines are sleek, but the components used along the panelling leave to be desired, the break in the the door from the trim line is a bit choppy and amaturish, and the back end looks too "beefed up", it wouldn't hurt to see a bit a softer contouring in the flow. THe engine bay cutouts look to ricer..... sorry but you may as well stick the fake cutout badging there rather than cut the holes.

I don't like the headlights.
Otherwise, it's OK.
Obviously it is not a retro exercise in the same sense as the Challenger. As fas as modern design is concerned, it works.
