Imagine a Hellcat pickup truck, or even more ridiculous – a Bentley one. Sounds crazy, right? It is. But graphic designer, X-Tomi, decided to take 10 sportscars currently on the market, and turn them into beautiful utes that would never actually happen.
One of the key turning points in automotive history came when cars went from a one-size-fits-all product to a variety of designs aimed at appealing to different ages, tastes, and budgets. By the 1960s, buyers had their pick of basic, sport, and luxury vehicles. However, the folks at Chrysler were latecomers to the specialized car world. To catch up to their rivals, they chose Dodge to introduce their entry into the fast-growing muscle car market of the 1960s. From their efforts came the Charger; one of the great vehicles to come out of that turbulent decade.
Throughout most of comic book history, superheroes have been blessed with unusual powers that aid them in their crime-fighting efforts. Superman, the granddaddy of them all, is bulletproof, immensely strong, and can leap great distances (yes, believe it or not, the original Superman could not fly; see Action Comics # 1).
You probably don’t get to drive a fancy supercar in the real world, but you can at least pretend to drive one in a game. Video games and board games let you channel your inner speed demon without the risk of getting a ticket and losing your license. Just try not to throw the controller at the screen when you crash because that might be even worse.
Here are our top 5 games for car fanatics.
Need For Speed Rivals
You not only get to drive all those supercars, but you get to race your friends and prove once and for all that you are the best. The gameplay is incredible with options for upgrading your ride with all sorts of crazy tech including jammers and electromagnetic pulses to evade the cops who will inevitably give chase. Great graphics, crazy customization, and fantastic gameplay make this a must-have for car fanatics. Get Need for Speed Rivals Here
Forza Horizon 2
This one is custom made for supercar junkies and it takes things a step further than the previous Forza which kept you on race tracks. The now open world design lets you take to the streets and you can crash into stuff like fences and possibly destroy your car in glorious fashion. You’ll also be hard-pressed to find a game with cars that look more realistic than this lot. You can get it on Amazon here
You and your fellow drivers battle it out in this board game that has actual plastic cars that you drive around a track. Control your lines and corners, manage your speed, and time your shifts perfectly to maneuver your way to first place. It can accommodate up to ten players and each gets their own car to race and a tracking card with a built-in gearshift. Click here more information on Formula D
Road Kill Rally
In the real world, you’re not allowed to slap a missile launcher on your car or hit pedestrians who are taking too long to cross the street. In Road Kill Rally
, that’s exactly how you win the game. The track is different every time with tiles that you randomly set out to create the board. Obstacles that you want to hit on the way to the finish include annoying kids on bikes and little old ladies with walkers, both of which show up on the track as little plastic figures.
Car War is the ultimate racing and car combat game. You build your vehicle from the ground up whether it’s a subcomact or an 18-wheeler, strap on a turret, and go to battle. If you want to feel like you’re Mad Max, then this is the game for you. This classic has just been re-released and if you’ve never played before then you’re missing out. You can order it online here.
