Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki - these are the names of the actors who go chasing ghosts and demons as Dean and Sam Winchester in the series "Supernatural". 218 episodes were produced in 10 seasons since 2005, no end in sight. The triumph of the mystery series appears to be unstoppable even after 10 years : Season 11 was confirmed. In Germany, the American television series ran with rather low key success because ProSieben has permanently changed its air times and even scared the core audience away. Currently running on the niche channels ProSieben Maxx every Monday from about 10 pm.
The original to the model
The main characters from "Supernatural" put their trust in their Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan model year 1967 ontheir hunt for villains . And exactly that car is brought out by the US label Greenlight in 1:18 scale. Vehicles with the name Impala are built by Chevrolet from 1957 until today. The vehicle of "Supernatural" corresponds perfectly to the original, referred to internally as the series 167 or series 168; depending on whether 4 or 6 cylinders are under the hood. Anyone familiar with thefear of flying of figure Dean Winchester understands his compassion for driving and can relate to our statement that the Chevy is powered by 8 cylinders . The 6.5 liter engine developed at that time brought up to 313 kW / 425 hp. But this power source we can not see: The doors and hoods of the successful model car stay closed.
Total damage already at the end of season 1
This is especially regrettable in terms of the trunk because the brothers Winchester carry their equipment that they use in the hunt for yellow-eyed demons and other supernatural beings- to which they have been trained by her father- in there. The vehicle has a dual boot floor in the film. And by the way to cope with a lot of setbacks: at the end of Season 1, there is a serious accident, which looks like a total wreckage and leaves the audience - designed as a cliffhanger - in the dark about whether the car and occupants survive. However, Dean Winchester builds up the Impala again, so that the -originaly belonging to the father of the two ghost hunters- four-door remained . The model car corresponds to high claims collectors have and is available for 69,95 Euro under item number 19001 as Limited edition. By the way: More movie cars in the video higher up in this blog.
