Movie Mania: Dodge Drops a Hemi in Fantastic Four's "Fantasticar"

In what looks to be one of the marketing coups of the summer, Dodge announced on Tuesday that it will be featured prominently in the upcoming movie Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. The superheroes in the movie will drive the "Fantasticar," which will feature a Hemi engine and a Dodge crosshair grille.

dodgeThe Fantasticar can reach speeds of up to 550 mph and an altitude of 30,000 feet. Dodge says the one-of-a-kind vehicle can separate into three sections. Each one has deployable wings and can maintain the speed and performance of the entire craft.

While you won't be able to get your hands on such a ride, Dodge says a toy Dodge Fantasticar by Hasbro is in the works. The Fantasticar will also appear in the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer video game. The movie will hit theaters on June 15.

The Fantasticar theme also makes it way into NASCAR with the debut on May 27 of the No. 19 "Fantasticar" Dodge Charger of Elliott Sadler at the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series' Coca-Cola 600 at Lowe's Motor Speedway. The No. 19 car gets a paint job that showcases the ghost-like Silver Surfer shooting across the hood, while flames explode over the nose and up the fenders of the Fantasticar.
