A rover from Judge Dredd or a new Toyota Camry?


On Craigslist.org, an advertisement for the sale of an all-terrain vehicle from the 1995 movie Judge Dredd, starring Sylvester Stallone, has appeared. The car is not in the best condition, but it costs relatively little for a car from a Hollywood blockbuster – 25 thousand dollars.

This copy is one of 31 that were built for the filming of “Judge Dredd”, says the author of the ad. According to the plot of the film, Land Rover remained the only surviving automaker in 2139 and produces armored taxis (City Cab) that roam the dangerous areas of the city.

The all-terrain vehicle with two pairs of gull-wing doors was designed by David Woodhouse and built on the trolley of the Army 101 Forward Control, produced from 1972 to 1979. The body was made of fiberglass and painted in taxi colors, and the all-terrain taxi was driven by a 3.5-liter Rover V8.

The fate of City Cab was different. It is known that three out of three dozen cars were used as promo-taxis during the premiere of Judge Dredd in 1995, one copy was exhibited at the British Automobile Museum in Gaydon, another, according to rumors, was bought by Sylvester Stallone, and several more were disassembled. The all-terrain vehicle put up for sale, in turn, took part in the CES-2003 Consumer Electronics Show and demonstrated the capabilities of the JBL audio system.

In March 2021, the truck that played Optimus Prime in Transformers was put up for sale. The Freightliner mainline tractor of 1987 was estimated at 21.6 thousand dollars.
