There’s a Feminine Side to the Refreshed Ecto-1 from the New Ghostbusters Movie

Not much is known about the reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise, but one thing is sure: the phantom hunters will be women. Hold your horses, we're not sexist. In fact, the supernatural comedy may turn out to be quite interesting with this “female” approach. Until we do get at least a teaser, we will stick to the “hero car” for now.

For starters, we’d like to mention that director Paul Feig stuck with the same brand, meaning the Cadillac. As supposed to the 1980s movies, the 21st-century Ectomobile seems to be a newer model. Let us remind you, the Ghostbuster car was, in fact, a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor limo-style end loader combination car. In other words, a converted ambulance.

The original vehicle design was the creation of Steven Dane, credited as a Hardware Consultant. It features included a special pull-out rack in the rear containing the staff’s proton packs. There were also other gadgets mounted on the top, whose function is never revealed in the movies.

This time around, the car rather seems to be an ex-hearse that was changed to fit the ghost busters' needs. The Cadillac does look a little sleeker and a bit more gritty and grounded. We still haven’t figured out why they kept the red paint job across the top and back, but maybe it has something to do with the fact the new team consists of women only.

Along the pictures with the car, Feig also posted a couple of photographs of the costumes and the weapons the characters will have in the new installment of the franchise. Erin Gilbert (played by Kristen Wiig) and Abby Bergman (played by Melissa McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. However, the book is laughed at, and nobody actually believes the story.

That is until Gilbert reunited with Bergman and others when ghosts invade Manhattan, and she and her team have to save the world. As we said, we’re going to wait for a teaser until we take any positions, but we would like to know your opinion on the new Ecto-1 car.
