The Chrysler designer’s 1960 concept for a Plymouth sports car will be offered by RM Auctions’ sale in Monterey this month.
Exner built his dream car on a modified unibody chassis shared by the Valiant and the Dodge Lancer.

A vertical fin, similar to that on a Jaguar D-type, runs from the hood to the tail. A bold chrome cross serves as a bumper, with a thin blade flowing down from the fin.
There's a lot of interest and history to this car
Exner wanted a car capable of 150 mph. While testing the car, he reached 143 mph; later with a fiberglass nose cone, the XNR topped 152 mph
