Check out a 30-year-old Caprice Hulkmobile

Streetside Classic is offering a very special lot on its website: a Chevrolet Caprice themed after The Hulk. The asking price of $40,000 may seem like much, but Spade Kreations – which was responsible for the build – claims that the paintjob alone cost that much back in 1989.

Streetside Classic is offering a very special lot on its website: a Chevrolet Caprice themed after The Hulk. The asking price of $40,000 may seem like much, but Spade Kreations – which was responsible for the build – claims that the paintjob alone cost that much back in 1989.

Take a closer look at the car, and you should see why. The livery reproduces the comics with painstaking accuracy and attention to detail. The tuner itself boasts that it is “more detailed than some Marvel movie plots,” and far be it from us to argue.

The exterior has plenty of other features that help it stand out from the crowd even more, such as a major suspension lift, new bumpers, lighting and radiator grille, and 30-inch DUB wheels. Rounding things off are Lamborghini-style doors fitted with a display each.

Marvels continue inside the car, where there is a Cadillac SRX top, a unique curved dashboard, bucket seats, and plenty of modern tech. The rear seat row is gone, its place occupied by a humongous audio system comprising 28 satellites, 14 amps and 4 subwoofers measuring 14” (36 cm) across.

You might find this hard to believe, but The Hulk is no garage queen, either. Pop up the hood to reveal a no-nonsense 7.0-liter V8 boosted to 512 PS (505 hp / 377 kW) and 637 Nm (470 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to a Borla exhaust system for a virtually unlimited selection of exhaust tunes.

Spade Kreations claims an art car like this would cost over $200,000 USD to create nowadays. It remains open why it is on sale for a small fraction of that amount.
