In movies, it's usually the good guys who drive the best cars. Pick any James Bond films, for example, and it’s as a rule the coolest ride you'd spot him riding. Same to any other of our favorite movies. But this time the super cool car was destined to belong to a great villain - Johan Schmidt, better known to Marvel Comics hero Captain America as the Red Skull.
We present you the V-16-powered Schmidt Hydra Coupe! The open-air coupe (why was it even named a 'coupe' in the first place is anyone's guess!) is powered by a V-16 airplane engine, and power is sent to all six wheels. It’s supposed to be the fastest car of the time.
Daniel Simon designed car is powered by a Ford V-8 and rides on a truck chassis. Simon, a former Volkswagen Group designer, was reportedly influenced by the Mercedes-Benz 540K, as well as vintage Bentleys and classic Duesenbergs.
The car's design is absolutely stunning, and there’s no denying that the car has a charisma of its own.
This is the V16 Coupe from 'Captain America' Marvel Comics.
