One of the Coolest Movie Cars You Don’t Remember Is For Sale

BOLD RIDE

Sometimes the coolest cars are the cars that never actually existed in the real world. A few years ago, a colleague tore the Dodge M4S a new one right here on this site, but I would like to politely disagree. I quite like the Turbo Interceptor, as it’s known from its star role in the movie The Wraith, and now one of the prop cars is for sale on Craigslist.

The M4S was a prototype show car created by Dodge in the early ’80s that gained notoriety for its appearance alongside Charlie Sheen and as a pace car. Although the original model is currently sitting in the Walter P. Chrysler Museum, there were four other dummies and replicas created for movie filming. This model, which is listed at $150,000, has been restored and holds a supercharged Pontiac V6. It originally had a 2.2-liter inline four with two turbochagers that reportedly helped it produced 440 horsepower.

As you can see, this thing was pretty indestructible:




According to the listing, general day-to-day driving is not recommended, as the shell is directly on the frame.
