Let’s face it, most of us are never going to participate in a chase scene in a movie or on the road and we’re likely not going to ever take a driving course that allows us to learn how to drive fast and maneuver the way we see the professionals drive on television or in the movies. Because we’re probably not going to be the one behind the wheel in a white-knuckle adrenaline rushing ride, we love to see the different races and chase scenes offered on the television and in the films that are offered for us to attend.
One Cool Film
If you haven’t seen the movie Baby Driver, you really should, especially if you love car chase scenes. The movie could have used a better title, but it does feature a baby-faced driver that has the ability to get his team away from capture after every robbery they pull off. He seems to be the most highly regarded and sought after driver in the criminal world, and one of his peculiar habits is to listen to music from his iPod that’s pumped into his headphones while he’s driving away from a scene.
This movie opens with an epic and amazing car chase scene, which you can enjoy in the video that’s linked below. The car used for the chase is a red Subaru WRX which might not be the choice you would make for a getaway car, but it’s just simple enough and appealing enough to be the right car for the scene of this movie. If you haven’t seen this film, you need to make sure you do, even if all you do is watch for the chase scenes because it’s full of them for you to enjoy watching.
The Car That Was Sold
If you were able to get hold of a car from this movie to be the one you can show off, you’d be shocked that it was sold at all. One of the stunt cars from the movie has been sold though. This is the car that was on the red carpet during the Los Angeles premiere of the movie, giving it even more credibility. This impressive car started out as a gray WRX but was painted gray to match the car for the movie. The WRX that was sold on eBay was also converted to an RWD model and given an upgraded differential, a turbocharger from a 2004STi and listed in good condition but does have some bumps and bruises from the filming.
The person who bought this car paid $69,100 for the car, which seems like an incredibly small price for a car that was shown off at the premiere and made its way onto the screen. There were 71 people trying to capture this car and make it their own and the price quickly rose to the winning bid level. The new owner of this car will certainly have a fun car to drive and a glorious story to tell with this car they just bought.
