If you're a car enthusiast -- no matter your automotive tastes, your preferences or your personal vehicles -- you know about the Dodge Charger Daytona and the Plymouth Superbird. They're two of the strangest-looking performance cars to ever leave any factory, at any time, in the history of the automobile. Ever. Their rear wings stretch 2 feet into the air, and their front ends are enormous. And now, they're worth big money.

Owing to their strange design (and poor sales upon release), the Charger Daytona and the Superbird were only made for a short period of time and never revived. Until now.

What you see here is a 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T modified to look like an old Plymouth Superbird or Charger Daytona. Finished in sublime green, this Challenger would already turn heads in stock form, but it's certainly to get some serious looks in its current state. It includes a giant front clip that protrudes well past the end of the hood, just like an old Charger Daytona. It also has a giant rear wing, which seems even more giant than the wings on the original Superbird and Daytona.

Not surprisingly, this car is an acquired taste. I personally think it's awesome, but I suspect a lot of people will find it downright bizarre. Either way, it gives us an idea of just how foreign the Superbird and Charger Daytona must've looked when they showed up on dealership lots more than 45 years ago.

For those of you who agree this thing is kind of cool, good news: It's currently for sale on Autotrader. You can buy it at Vicksburg Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-RAM in Vicksburg, Michigan, near Kalamazoo, where it's available with 11,950 miles for $67,785. That's big money for a 2015 Challenger -- but then again, there probably aren't too many that look like this.
