Say hello to the HPP Superbird
Styling from the seventies, modern muscle underneath… this is the new Superbird
Posted: 07 Mar 2012
What is this lump of orange and noise and wing that's advertising TopGear's presence like a 60-foot neon sign flashing ‘GET YOUR FREE CAMERA KIT HERE'? The HPP Superbird, that's what, and chances are you've already formed a strong opinion about it. This will likely be either: "Hell yeah, give me one of them bad boys and a side order of ribs, boy" or "Goodness, what a vulgar machine." Opinions on this car rarely hover in midfield.
To understand where this mantelpiece-winged monster is coming from, we need to rewind 42 years.
