Classic Plymouth Road Runner rises from the ashes as CGI Restomod

Defunct in the summer of 2001, the Plymouth brand remains the darling of automotive enthusiasts.

It's all thanks to iconic models like the big muscle car hunter Barracuda, the dark and menacing Fury, the crazy aerodynamic warrior Superbird, the daring Valiant and the powerful and sophisticated GTX.

But what about the Road Runner, the affordable mid-size performance model that even had the “Beep-Beep” horn, modeled after the Looney Tunes animated character?

Well, in addition to being a bucket list wish for people who loved the setbacks of Wile E. Coyote's pursuit, it was also something that could offer the same thrills as the pricey GTX, but in a more basic, more-priced package. low.

The model was produced between 1968 and 1980, but even today, some people might want to see the nameplate revived, if only in the digital world.

This is the case with virtual artist from the Czech Republic, Rostislav Prokop, better known as rostislav_prokop on social media, who continues to build his CGI dreams alongside HotCars and who has just revealed the return of the Plymouth Road Runner.

The rendering of the Plymouth Road Runner

As per the original, built for model years 1968 to 1970, this is a two-door hardtop coupe with dual headlights, a good hood vent, and a full-width taillight design, this time presumably from the LED variety.

Pixel master also added to this restomod some additional details such as the two tone paint job, a closed attitude, a wide body aerodynamic kit atmosphere, and a nice set of classic wire wheels in the aftermarket style.

Unfortunately, that's not all, as the large discs and red brake calipers, along with the beefy dual exhaust at the rear, also suggest that something modern and aggressive resides under the hood.
