1970 Plymouth Superbird

The Superbird was a sports car designed primarily for NASCAR. It is a modified version of the Plymouth Road Runner. It was one of the first American cars to be designed in aerodynamics using wind tunnel. The car was not successful because of its "extreme" appearance, despite this nowadays the collectors appreciate this car: for this it has reached very high prices.
