Plymouth is showing off its Road Runner Concept

The Road Runner Concept model was 1st shown last year on the Mopar Enthusiast cover magazine illustrating a possible Plymouth brand return.

This study was made by Michael Leonhard independent artist from Austria. The design is inspired from Road Runners '71 - '72 and it's adding modernized and shapes of the future, keeping the original auto character. Typical muscle car - wheels - 20 inches front, 22 inches rear. Its powetrain adopts a 5.7 up - 7.0 liter engine with 6-speed automatic of manual gearboxes.

Michael Leonhard's own words description of this amazing design process: "The front looks dramatic and mean thanks to a headlight section made of tinted glass. Headlights only become visible when they are turned on.

"The same goes for the Roadrunner Logo in the center that is now illuminated. The big grille opening provides plenty of air for the radiator. The hemi-powered monster gets rid of hot air the other way round through the typical hood scoops.

"The side view is characterized by a dramatically dynamic shape with a low roof line, high belt line, square-molded wheel-arches and big magnesium five spoke wheels (22 inch rear, 20 inch front) combined with red line tires.

"The taillights are styled to match the headlights and become visible when turned on. To a big part the roof is made of glass except the A-pillars made of aluminium.

The C-pillar becomes a dominating design element on the roof section and carries the typical interrupted Roadrunner grafics. The color of choice for the body is Curious Yellow and Triple Black."
