Virgil Exner’s 1960 Plymouth XNR.

Over the last few weeks the Plymouth XNR has been getting a ton of buzz in the automotive blog world. It went on the auction block over the weekend at RM Auctions and was featured on Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube. This really is a rolling work of art designed by Virgil Exner in 1960. I could go into great detail about what makes the design of this car so wonderful even by today’s standards, but the video below does a fantastic job of explaining the design, history, and the cars relationship to the time it was built. Automotive enthusiasts, and design fanatics, this is for your viewing pleasure.
