We all know of some very uncommon cars from movies which have very strange designs and futuristic, yet not always realistic, features.
You may think that these cars only exist in the movies, but that is not the case.
In real life there are a lot of strangely weird and wonderful cars developed and produced.

Check out these crazy, strange and absolutely unique rides that will surely make you stand out of the crowd.

Happy Holidays all! #peelp50 #peel #microcars

A post shared by Greg Long (@found_motorcars) on

The Peel P50 is a three-wheeled microcar originally made from 1962 to 1965 by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man.
It was listed in the 2010 Guinness World Records as the smallest production car ever made.
From front to back, it’s about 54 inches long.
If you don’t have a ruler handy, that’s about half of Shaquille O’Neal.

Batmobile

Bad news for bad guys: the Batmobile from the Dark Knight movies is real!
And any wannabe Batmen or Batwomen out there can buy it—if they happen to have $1 million to spend.
According to a test driver from Top Gear, this crazy car has a monster engine, 44-inch tires, custom windows, five cameras, and “the ability to scare fellow road users senseless.”

Ferrari 512S Modulo

The Ferrari 512S Modulo is a concept sports car designed by Paolo Martin of the Italian carozzeria Pininfarina, unveiled at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show.

It has quite an uncommon design to make it as fast as possible.
It is very low (less than a metre high) in order to be as aerodynamic as possible.
This race car can reach a top speed of 350 km/h.
Although built back in the 70s, it still looks quite futuristic today.
Unfortunately it never went into production; Ferrari kept it as a one-off.

ThrustSSC

Yes, this is a car (albeit a crazy one): The ThrustSSC is a twin turbofan jet-powered car that went 1,228 km/h in October 1997, earning it the World Land Speed Record.
The ThrustSSC was the first car to travel at a supersonic speed, meaning it broke the sound barrier at Mach 1.016.
Which makes honking useless, since the car will arrive before the beep does.

Miller Race Car

This Miller Race Cars dragster is so fast!
You’re definitely going to want to buy one of the $420 parachutes the company sells to make it stop.
In fact, you might want to get two just to be safe.

ISO Isetta

The Isetta is an Italian-designed micro car built under license in a number of different countries, including Argentina, Spain, Belgium, France, Brazil, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a bubble car, a name also given to other similar vehicles.

Slingshot Grand Touring LE by Polaris

For those who can’t get their hands on a Batmobile, the Slingshot Grand Touring LE by Polaris is the next best thing.
New York Mets all-star Yoenis Cespedes is one famous fan of the car’s cool design and fun drivability.
The Polaris website lists all kinds of cool high-tech features, but the real reason to drive this beast is to make everyone else look like a joker.

Stout Scarab

Stout Scarab is considered as the first minivan in the world.
It is not a very big car but despite that, it is fitted with a Ford V8 engine in the back.
It was designed in the early 30s and cost 4 times more than a luxury Chrysler Imperial of the same era.

Unfortunately few people were willing to pay for the innovation; only 9 examples of this minivan were built and only 5 still exist today.

General Motors Firebird

A few other weird and wonderful cars were built by General Motors just to show what they were capable of in terms of technique and design, namely the Firebirds.

General Motors was inspired by the world of aviation and their designs have a lot in common with fighter jets.
The cars were powered by the same big gas turbine engines which also powered fighter jets.
The cars were very unstable due to the high power so it was difficult to test them.

1947 Norman Timbs Special

The Norman Timbs Special’s dramatic exterior design hinges on a wavelike motion, resembling the dips and peaks of a roller coaster.
However, its extravagant aluminum body didn’t hinder the vehicle’s speed.
The 1948 Buck Straight engine powered this unique vehicle, allowing it to reach a top speed of 120 miles per hour.
