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.
