League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Captain Nemo’s Full Size, Practical Nautilus Car

The Nautilus Car was designed by Carol Spier and of course entirely custom made for the production. The basic starting point, the chassis, is from a Land Rover Fire Tender. A unique fibreglass body was then added and a steel sub frame then constructed in the engine bay to house the Rover V8 engine required to power it. 6 enormous wheels, measuring 28 inches (72 cm) in diameter complete the basic car. The whole car also raises and lowers itself in spectacular style via a powerful hydraulic system. Per the collector that owns this car, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a unique story featuring an odd assortment of legendary fictional Victorian characters who join up to foil “The Fantom” who is trying to start a World War.” Even though the flick was a high budget affair when it came to the cas, it was Captain Nemo’s 6-wheeled wonder that stole the show
