This Wonder Woman Car Isn’t Invisible, What the Hell?!

…but it’s cool and it’s for a good cause, so I’ll let that little detail slide. This is the Wonder Woman Kia Sportage, made to support DC Entertainment’s We Can Be Heroes charity campaign. The car made its debut back in March, which is like ten thousand years in Internet time, we know, we know. But this is the first time we’re seeing it, so… nyah. You can see detail shots at Motor Trend.

(Thanks, tipster Mike!)

You Can Buy A S.H.I.E.L.D. Vehicle From The Avengers On Ebay

How would you like to wake up Christmas day to find this pretty thing wrapped in a giant red bow in your driveway? The dream could become a reality as the Scottsdale Motor Company is selling it on Ebay. They write, “This 2011 Acura MDX is a true collector car! This beast is from the movie The Avengers! This S.H.I.E.L.D MDX was custom built especially for this movie. There were only 10 made! Not only is this SUV loaded with factory options but it also comes equipped with the S.H.I.E.L.D build options.” I’ll be honest, if I was in the market for a new car, I’d seriously consider this. Because seriously, it’s a relatively new car, filled with good stuff, and painted to make you look like a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent. You could roll up anywhere and not get a ticket. Ok, that’s probably not true, but you will look like a boss. The “buy it now” price is $42,900 and bids are up to $22,100 with their reserve not yet met.

Pixar Businesses Get Beautiful Advertisements

Over the course of their history, Pixar has created some incredibly memorable worlds– and with those worlds, the fictional establishments that inhabit them.

Remember these? Check out the gallery to see!

Speed Sisters Shows Us The Middle East’s First Female Car Racing Team


 

The documentary Speed Sisters from SocDoc Studios gives us a look at the lives of Noor, Mona, Maysoon, Betty, and Marah, the five women who make up the Middle East’s first female car racing team.  Watch as they cooly drift and race through obstacles on the road, discuss societal expectations and racing, and navigate their lives.
I’m looking forward to this documentary. It focuses on five amazing women pursuing their passion and living their lives in an area that we usually see through conflict, and all five women look like truly hardcore, awesome ladies.

In the Battle Between Talking Trains and Talking Cars, Who Would Win?

We’re all familiar with Maximum Overdrive, right? The movie where inanimate objects come alive and a bunch of trucks make Emilio Estevez pump gas for them? No? Well, I’m terribly sorry to have burdened your mind with that knowledge. You know, if we have to create intelligent machines that are going to fight something… could they fight each other? Maybe for our affection?

Okay, in the fight for our affection between talking trains and talking cars, I think there’s a clear winner.

Watch Yourself, Guys. Ladies Rule the Roads Now.

A study by the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute has determined that for the first time ever there are more female than male drivers in the U.S. And yet the women-only Honda Fit hasn’t caught on stateside. It’s almost like all these ladies are driving gender-neutral cars. Weird.

Unsurprising News of the Day: Using “Female” Crash Test Dummies May Help Reduce Injuries in Females

There are some things in this world that if we took the time to be mad at, we would be angry every day. Sometimes we just don’t have the energy for that. But hey, let’s look at some further examples of a gender-skewed world anyway: Women are on record as twice as likely as men to suffer whiplash in car accidents, and yet the majority of crash test dummies used in car safety tests are based on the average male.

Luckily for all women who prefer their necks un-lashed, there are people working to remedy that.
