Not too long ago Kurt wrote an article on the Daytona and Superbird replicas that were being built by Heide Performance Products (HPP) and based on Dodge’s new Challenger. The cars debuted at SEMA in 2009 and since that time they’ve garnered some very mixed reactions. For example, I for one think they’re flippin’ hideous. When the redesigned Dodge Challenger came out in 2008 it set the world on its ear because it was so close in design relation to the original cars of the 1970’s. Sure it may be a bit fat around the edges, but regardless, the designers did one hell of a job with this car.
Then, as with all good things, companies like HPP show up and decide to ruin a great car by thinking that there was a demand for a new Daytona and Superbird. Granted they did A LOT of work and produced a car that pays homage to the original wing cars in a weird sort of way, but that doesn’t change the fact that these cars really aren’t good looking automobiles.
What you are viewing here is the very first Superbird replica produced by HPP and it’s up for sale on eBay. According to the ad this baby produces 655 hp from the supercharged 6.1-liter HEMI and puts power down through a standard SRT8 6-speed manual transmission. There is currently one day left on the auction with bidding already up to almost 60K. So with that being said, if you’re in the market for a 2010 Dodge Challenger-Superbird then this will most likely be one of your only chances to get one!
