One icon of the present and one from the future star in one hotly anticipated movies for sci-fi fans around the world. Before we get underway with our regularly scheduled story, please watch the first trailer for the movie Elysium, a movie created by the man who directed District 9.
Besides Matt Damon looking like a total robot killing master of the rail gun, e noticed something else, something with wheels.

It's the Nissan GT-R, the one from the present, that's being used as a sort of Japanese-made Mad Max Ford Falcon, only with a twin-turbo V6. The car appears briefly in the trailer and gets blasted to smithereens, though the official movie website shows Matt sitting alongside it, indicating it's his.

The GT-R appears to be one of the newer 2012 models and is ready for the zombie apocalypse, having roof lights, protective mesh grilles over the windows and rat-rot headlights.

Elysium's plot centers around a space station where the rich live, with no wars, hunger or even decease. Can you guess what they drive? Yep, it's a Bugatti spaceship, with a two-tone paintjob included. This trailer gives us only a small glimpse of the car, but we have a single photo of its from last year's Comic-Con for you to enjoy below.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
