They were lined up in the traditional 11 rows of three on South Meridian Street in Indianapolis last weekend for the photo op of the year (an estimated 250,000 people took in the scene), but where are the “Super Cars” now?

The program — a first for the NFL and another sport — marries the iconic Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and INDYCAR with Super Bowl XLVI, which will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium on Feb. 5.

Thirty-two cars have been vinyl wrapped by Freelance Graphics in Indianapolis to represent each NFL team (their colors, logo), with the number on the rear wing endplates signifying the year they entered the league. There also are a duplicate set of cars prepared for the AFC and NFC Championship participants and another representing Super Bowl XLVI.

All follow a design scheme that incorporates the laces of a football across the top of the air intake.
