A Detailed Look At The Cars From Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984

Let’s have a detailed look at these classic cars from Gal Gadot’s latest DCEU flick.

Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 2017 DCEU flick of the same name, impressed critics and audiences worldwide. While Wonder Woman 1984 (Wonder Woman’s sequel) didn’t exactly generate as much buzz and appreciation as its prequel, it managed to grab our attention nonetheless, thanks to the ravishing cars on display throughout the movie.

We’ll run out of fingers if we sat down and counted the number of amazing classic cars (which is hardly a surprise as the WW sequel is set in the 1980s) that feature in the Gal Gadot superhero film. The movie features all sorts of classic vehicles. There’s an iconic Chevy van (which spawned the famous GMC Vandura that we saw in the A-Team), a classic Chevy Camaro, and a bunch of Hummers, to begin with. However, the ones that we couldn’t stop admiring are the 1983 Ford LTD Victoria Crown, the 1984 Chrysler Fifth Avenue, and the classic Mercedes-Benz W126.

Let’s have a detailed look at these classic cars from Gal Gadot’s latest DCEU flick.

While we are smitten by Gadot and her real-life car collection, there’s a car from Wonder Woman 1984 that caught us off guard in the trailer itself. There’s a ruckus at a shopping mall and the cops are called in. What happens next? The cops arrive in one of the finest vintage models from the 80s: a trio of the 1983 Ford LTD Victoria Crown. These classic Ford gems dominated the US Police fleets for over 3 decades before they were ditched for modern-day cars. The 1983 Ford LTD Victoria Crown models that feature in Wonder Woman 1984 are downsized versions of their 70s’ predecessors. As a result, the 1983 Victoria Crown was also considerably lighter than the previous-gen models – about 440 lbs lighter, to be specific – while maintaining enough interior space. To sum it up, this 1983 Ford classic was a super-efficient gem that boasted posh and spacious interiors. These Victoria Crown models were also among the first “Panther” platform cars and were lauded by automobile experts for their robustness and durability. Hence, it is no surprise that it survived over three decades as part of the police fleet. At the heart of this Ford classic car was a 5.8L Windsor V8 engine. The Windsor V8 engine was among two of the smallest displacement engines available back in the day. The LTD Victoria Crown from Wonder Woman 1984 boasted impressive aerodynamics. Furthermore, it featured power windows, tilt steering, and automatic headlights. In terms of acceleration, the 1983 Ford LTD Victoria Crown could go from o to 60 miles per hour in just about 13 seconds and boasted a top speed of over 100 miles per hour. Not exactly the quickest by any means but quick enough to arrive well on time if and when called upon.

1984 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

Chrysler Fifth Avenue is an iconic gem from the yesteryears. The old gem has featured in a number of movies and TV series over the years. It is also fondly remembered as Mike Ehrmantraut’s favorite car. And Wonder Woman joins the list of popular characters to have driven the Chrysler classic.

In Wonder Woman 1984, Gal Gadot’s character is seen alighting from the 1984 Chrysler Fifth Avenue. Stunning and bold, just like the Israeli actress, this Fifth Avenue beauty, despite being a massive 5.25 meters in length, was among the smaller Fifth Avenue models. The Fifth Avenue model in the WW sequel was among the famous M-body models that become extremely popular back in the 80s. The 1984 classic model was powered by an efficient 5.2L V8 engine. It was capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just about 13 seconds. At 105 miles per hour, this Chrysler classic’s top speed wasn’t exactly track-tearing but it didn’t have to be for a luxury sedan of its size. This classic car also holds the distinction of being the last V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive Chrysler model before the Chrysler 300 was revived in 2005.

Next up is the Mercedes-Benz W126 that makes an appearance among chaos when Diana and Steve travel to Pennsylvania and find something big unraveling. This Merc classic stands among a number of still cars and an old-school Hummer passing by. Powered by a 3.0-liter five-cylinder inline OM617 engine, the W126 was a beacon of efficient performance. With posh and super comfy interiors, the W126 was one of the most luxurious vehicles back in the day. The driver’s airbags and ABS (anti-lock braking system) ensured safety at all times. Diana’s Mercedes-Benz classic also featured a fully automatic climate control system, powered by an internal temperature sensor. Powered by drivetrain tech, the W126 featured impressive acceleration. It was capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 8 seconds. The W126’s top speed of 130 miles per hour grabbed plenty of eyeballs for a special class couple model back in the 80s.
