Blade Runner 2049 and its cars set for release
23 May 2017
The long awaited sequel to the 1982 original Blade Runner is set for release in October 2017. With Harrison Ford reprising his role as Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling taking up the role as a new Blade Runner, a new dark secret is discovered that might bring to an end to humanity.
Produced by award-winning director Ridley Scott and directed by Denis Villeneuve, the title has been confirmed as Blade Runner 2049. Many attempts have been since the original release to produce a sequel, but have failed to materialise. The exact plot of the upcoming release is so far unknown, but discussing the brief outline Villeneuve revealed “The climate has gone berserk- the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic”. Starting Ana de Armas, Mackensize Davis and Sylvia Hoeks alongside Ford and Gosling, Blade Runner 49 is set in a futuristic Los Angeles.
Due to feature a new fleet of futuristic cars or ‘spinners’, they can be driven the traditional method of on the road or take to the sky when required. Models that they are inspired by are set to include a car that looks like an amalgamation of a Lamborgini Aventador and the Batmobile and a Lada Niva sat in a snow cover LA street.
The original Blade Runner featured futuristic flying cars giving a glimpse at what producers thought 2017 would look like and how we would get about.

Spinner Police car
Based on a Dodge Charger LX, the Blade Runner inspired vehicle can fight crime using the road or up in the sky. As one of the fastest police cars on the road criminals, our Spinner Police car can catch cyber criminals with ease.
Our sedan (or saloon to us in the UK) is modelled on the already futuristic Testla Model S. The 100% electric car will have no issues in chasing down law breaking androids with an impressive 0-60mph time. Looking to retire in the original film Rick Deckard used a sedan when he undertook a mission to escape.
Taking inspiration from the legendary Ford Transit Custom, our Armadillo Van is ideal for J. F. Sebastian, an eccentric genetic designer to undertake his daily tasks. Said by some to have inspired the Transit range, it offers exceptional practicality.
The ‘Everyday’ Car
There is a time when you just need a ‘sensible’ car that offers functionality as well as futuristic looks. If you are not needed into escape the police or androids, then maybe the Volkswagen Gold Hatchback is the perfect choice.
Blade Runner Truck
Taking inspiration from the snippets that have been spied in the recently launched trailer, the Blade Runner Truck is inspired by the Nikola One Semi. Offering all the technology that you would require, this truck would fit in well in 2049.
With criminals running wild and law enforcement needing to keep the peace, a Spinner Motorcycle is the ideal way to fight crime. A powerful and streamlined Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle would make the ideal Spinner Motorcycle for the job.
