Artist Michael Leonhard first tipped us off to his design sketches of the
Plymouth Road Runner Concept back in June. He has now kicked his drawings up a
notch with these renderings, dubbed the Road Runner Superbird Concept.
In Leonhard's mind, he sees his version of the Superbird as a late 60's NASCAR
killer. With a HEMI engine (of course), the artist wanted to create an American
style sports car that has muscle and reduced drag.
"[It has] a sleek nose cone that slips into air like a knife through butter;
incorporating a spoiler below the centered grille opening," writes Leonhard. He
also integrated an exhaust system into the rocker panel. The ideally aluminum
two-panel rear spoiler is massive, and would create "enormous downforce," he
Keeping with the NASCAR look, Leonhard added the Richard Petty-inspired artwork.
If built, the Plymouth Road Runner Superbird Concept would ride on 19-inch white
magnesium rims up front, and 21-inchers at back.
