1971 Plymouth Barracuda from Furious 5 at Barrett-Jackson 2011 – Click above for high-res image gallery

A 1971 Plymouth Barracuda is a wonderful sight to behold. However, for the producers of Furious 5 (the upcoming installment in the Fast and Furious franchise), it's apparently not quite furious enough. How do they solve the problem? By stuffing a 636 Hemi under the hood and attaching a blower larger than Vin Diesel's impression of himself.

The car features five-point harnesses, leather-lined race seats and a custom dash signed by Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Justin Lin. Based on the "Frankencuda" Muscle Machine diecast toy, this custom 'Cuda is a fantasy car come to life.

Check out both the 'Cuda's official listing on Barrett-Jackson, and watch Speed's live online coverage here. Are you playing Speed's Online Fantasy Bid Game? If not, test your auction pricing mettle by guessing what a series of featured vehicles will end up bringing at the auction block – you could end up winning a prize, like an Apple iPad. Enjoy!
