scale Red European Renault 4 Car
from the movie Team America: World Police
(Paramount Pictures, 2004)
This is another puppet scale car from Team America. This is a little European car seen in the Paris scene at the beginning of the movie (it's a 1960's model Renault 4). During the scene when the boy is walking with the ice cream, you see a blue car drive behind him. That's this car. They re-painted it red (you can see the blue in the scratch above the windshield), but I'm not sure if it was used after the repaint (I don't recall seeing a red one while watching the movie).
It's a neat little car, it has an interior made of styrofoam (dash board, front and rear seats), the headlights actually work, but the steering does not (the front wheels are screwed in the forward position, but I could make them steer easily if I want to). Lots of little details, all of which appear to be hand-made (door handles, trunk latch, bumpers, front grill, little grill under the windshield, steering wheel...) The headlights you see are the actual glass of the bulbs themselves. Even the hub caps are custom made and attached to what looks like wagon weels.
