Question PLYMOUTH ROADRUNNER CONCEPT (very interesting)

http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2008/07...oncept-by.html




More of a result of pipe-dreaming than actual inside info, the 2010 Plymouth Road Runner Concept that’s featured in the August/September issue of Mopar Enthusiast magazine is based on the new Dodge Challenger using styling cues from the ’71-’72 model year Road Runners. The folks at Mopar Enthusiast are pretty optimistic that gas prices will drop since they believe that the car should be powered by a HEMI 5.7L V8 as standard with 6.1L and… 7.0L V8 HEMIs being offered as optional equipment.

Taillights are too low, they'll get moved if this ever makes production. Not bad but just looks like another chally. Nothing new or impressive in my eyes.

I like the Road runner and 'cuda concepts-- probably because we can not expect them to be built...

I really never thought I would see someone "retro design" a 1971-1972 Roadrunner. Unbelievable. Sorry Mopar fans, this "fuesalage" look does not transcend to modern car design. Nice try though...

I guarantee that won't make production. The lights need to be higher and would have to look more realistic. With Chrysler in its current state, I wouldn't expect a Plymouth revival either.

It would be nice to see it come back though.

those 2 T/A pics need to be blended.

if the second t/a pic had 2 headlights it'd be better (to better seperate it from the camaro) and the intake on the back wheel needs to be 2 seperate things, instead of one.

|||
|||

instead of the ||| (but longer)
and stick that bump in the hood on over to the second.
and keep the bottom grille of the first - but put it on the second.
and keep the thing behind the front wheel.

Give Chrysler some credit and hope it might make production, personally we need all the big V8's we can get, we are way out numbered by the Imports

.......curious about the 7.0 HEMI

don't see them bringing back Plymouth, and Dodge "Road Runner" sounds way better than Chrysler Road Runner anyway- anyone agree

as for looks, taillights wont make production, optimistic about the headlights

People are already stroking the 6.1 to the 7.0l 426 engine....now I want to see someone step up to that, or even the 5.7 stroked into a 6.4l 392 hemi. LEGENDARY


Also agree chrysler will revive the cuda if and only if the challenger maintains sales but with gas prices this might be the last time we get to see these cars.
