We’ve seen superhero wraps for cars, and we’ve even seen cars that reveal their inner-superhero once exposed to warm water, but what we have here is a whole different story.
This year is going to be an extremely superhero-heavy movie season, with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” already out and “Captain America: Civil War”, “X-Men: Apocalypse”, “Suicide Squad”, “Doctor Strange” and even “Gambit” coming up.
Of course, not all superheroes are worth getting their own personal car theme. Some, however, like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man or Iron Man certainly do deserve one, while you could also make the case for Wonder Woman, Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and of course, Deadpool – everyone’s favorite mercenary with a dirty mouth.
Batman’s BMW M2
The Dark Knight is getting a BMW M2 and at first, it seems a bit odd, doesn’t it? There’s no compact Batmobile, so if anything, Batman’s Bimmer should be something like an M6 Coupe right? Well, perhaps, but how many of you would pick the M6 over the M2?
This “Dark M2” comes with bat-shaped kidney grilles, ear-like fins which at the same time pay homage to the classic CSL racer, and even a side-mounted grappling hook for “comically tight turns”, says the artist responsible.
Superman’s Bugatti Chiron
It is somewhat fitting for the Man of Steel to get what is arguably the most imposing production car in the world. The Chiron would intimidate just about any rival, as does Superman (unless your last name is Wayne), so matching them up makes sense. Unlike the M2, this car is more about the color than a specific design theme, but we’re OK with that and we reckon Lois would be too.
Wonder Woman’s Lamborghini Huracan
It’s strange but we’ve never actually considered what car would best represent Wonder Woman. The red, blue & gold theme is obviously a good start when it comes to this Lamborghini Huracan, but what stands out here is the WW logo embedded across the front fascia. Also, notice the “crown” it wears right above the windshield.
Aquaman’s Toyota Mirai
Uh, this one is a bit of a downer in terms of performance, but Toyota’s Mirai does run on hydrogen emitting only water, so that kind of ties in with Aquaman. The artist also mentions how the Mirai is waterproof, bulletproof and extremely silent.
Captain America’s Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R
We all know what Cap is about. The guy likes his flags red white and blue, and his language as PG-13 as possible. The shield resting against the hood scoop is neat, while the Vibranium alloys probably couldn’t give a hoot about potholes.
Iron Man’s Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Yes, yes, Tony Stark is an Audi R8 type of guy, but that doesn’t mean his alter ego has to stick to just one brand. This wide-body Z06 is allegedly powered by an arc reactor, while the crimson and gold paint makes it really easy for comic book fans to identify who this car belongs to.
Spider-Man’s Ferrari 488 Spider
Forget it; Peter Parker can’t really afford this thing. It’s one thing to sell us on Captain America rolling in a Mustang, but a Ferrari on a photographer’s salary? He’d have to walk around as Spider-Man with a selfie stick in front of his face for a whole decade in order to convince J. Jonah Jameson to give him that much money. Still, the theme works really well and the headlight surrounds do sort of look like Spidey’s eyes.
Wolverine’s Audi R8
This is the all-new R8 and if we had to guess, we’d say it’s the V10 plus – where ‘plus’ stands for excess hair. Seriously, this thing needs some urgent manscaping by the looks of it. Aside from that, the Adamantium claws work like a charm on that front spoiler, while the side mirrors remind us of his original X-Men costume, which is something we hope Hugh Jackman starts keeping track of.
The Hulk’s Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6
It’s about time somebody finds a proper way to utilize this monster of a car – give it to a monster of a superhero. The connection was staring us in the face all along. Like the Hulk, this G63 6×6 comes with radioactive green paint and purple wheel arches (like his pants) while looking perfectly equipped to…SMASH.
Deadpool’s Ford Fusion/Mondeo
If this one isn’t your favorite, you’ve probably already had your fill of Chimichangas today. This is the most creative and funniest design of the pack, and we’re not just talking about the swords or the not-so-subtle hint about somebody being in the trunk.
What’s cool about this Ford Fusion is that the white taillights, together with the color accents, makes it seem like the rear of the car resembles Deadpool’s face (with the mask on). But in order for your “laugh out loud” moment to be complete, make sure to read the message written on the rear spoiler.
