The Joker’s car has been getting just as much attention in Suicide Squad as its villainous owner. The Vaydor car was hard to ignore as it sped down the streets of the film’s Toronto set as bystanders snapped video from the sidelines. The vehicle takes center stage once again in a new feature package from the local station Fox News 13.
Matt McEntegart is the owner and founder of Vaydor Exotics, which is a kit car whose fiberglass body fits on a standard G35 Infiniti. Warner Bros. came to McEntegart to build the Joker’s car in Suicide Squad, and the Fox affiliate went behind the scenes of the business to see how it was done. According to the story, it costs approximately $60,000 for anyone to get the low sports car look — and after the film’s release, comic book fans/car lovers will probably want this ride. However, it does have some competition in the form of the Batmobile, which we’ve also spotted on set.

As it turns out, the Joker is McEntegart’s favorite villain. It’s still unclear just how much of Jared Leto’s madman will feature in David Ayer’s comic book film, mainly because it’s said to be mostly about the actual Suicide Squad, comprised of Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Killer Croc (Adewale Akkinuoye-Agbaje), and more. We have seen the car quite a bit through leaked videos from the set and the Comic-Con trailer. It was most notably shown in a chase sequence involving Joker, Harley, and Ben Affleck’s Batman, the latter of which was crouched atop the moving car.
Suicide Squad also features Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Cara Delevigne as Enchantress, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Karen Fukuhara as Katana. The film will hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
