Why is a supercharged Camaro the star of the movie "Turbo"? Why not call the movie "Supercharged", or use a turbocharged Camaro? DUH!!! This is a total embarrassment to all cars with forced induction! My EVO would have been pleased to star in this movie!

A snail is the star of Turbo. Both because turbos are synonymous with speed and because of their similar appearance to a snail.

I am totally amazed at how inept some of these commenters are. All this car is supposed to do is draw attention and promote a movie. Anyone who thinks this car was designed for real use is quite foolish

This car looks ridiculous and is totally impractical since you can't see out of it.

Guaranteed, no short driver can drive this monster! This ain't no Bumble Bee, that's for damn sure! Even for the tall driver, how is he/she going to see past that 'Turbo' bonnet air-scoop?! One for the Mad Max crew! Menacing doesn't even cover this car's road presence. Can't wait to see the featured animation from Dreamworks!
