Developed specifically for NASCAR racing, the Plymouth Superbird was a highly modified, version of the Plymouth Road Runner that incorporates many changes and modifications to optimize high speed performance. The unique aero package featured an aerodynamic nose cone with retractable headlights and the unmistakable rear wing mounted on tall vertical struts that increased downforce on the car’s rear axle.
