Fictional Dodge “Fantasticar” to be featured in Fantastic Four movie
Auburn Hills, Michigan – The newest Dodge brand vehicle will debut on the silver screen this summer in an action adventure movie with four superheroes. The Fantastic Four meet their greatest challenge yet, as the enigmatic intergalactic herald, the Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction in “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.” Twentieth Century Fox releases the film on June 15.
The vehicle of choice for the Fantastic Four is the one-of-a-kind Fantasticar, which can reach speeds of up to 550 mph and an altitude of 30,000 ft. The Fantasticar also can separate into three sections. Each one has deployable wings and can maintain the same speed and performance as the entire craft.
Among the Dodge cues on the Fantasticar are the brand’s signature crosshair grille with ram’s head logo and the Dodge name on the front and rear fascias. A red ram’s head logo also appears on the seat headrests.
Other elements of the Dodge partnership with 20th Century Fox and its partners are a toy Dodge Fantasticar by Hasbro; Dodge Fantasticar inclusion in the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer video game; and in-theater and national television promotions.
In addition to the Fantasticar, the other Dodge vehicles getting screen time in the “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” are the Dodge Ram Mega Cab and Durango.
