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

says.

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.
