Killer Gaming Cars

Check out these cars from video games.

These awesome gaming autos prove that gearheads and gamers aren't so different after all. Juggernaut gaming franchises are slowly but surely muscling their way into the automotive industry. It may not be long until every major video game release is accompanied by a limited edition automobile. Until that beautiful day comes, we're all just going to have to be content with checking out all of these killer gaming cars.

The Jeep Wrangler was nearly nonexistent in "Call of Duty: Black Ops," but that didn't stop Activision and Jeep from creating the Black Ops Wrangler. This limited edition ride is based on the Wrangler Rubicon and features mineral gray alloy wheels with 32-inch off-road tires, an all-black exterior and the "Call of Duty: Black Ops" logo.

The Famicom xB is an amazing art car was designed by Eric Nakamura, publisher of Giant Robot magazine. This car is actually a giant NES with push-button door handles featuring video game sounds and head and taillights that function as projector screens. The seatbelts of the car double as controllers and the key is actually an NES cartridge. And yes, the Famicom xB can be driven.

One has to wonder how much this life-size Halo Warthog would fetch if it ever went up for auction. This aggressive tribute car is fully functional and features four-wheel drive and a machinegun that hopefully doesn't fire live ammo. This impressive replica was created by the WETA Workshop to promote the release of Halo 3.

Activision and Jeep have joined forces once more to create a limited edition Wrangler Rubicon to celebrate the release of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3." The exterior of the Modern Warfare 3 Jeep features aggressive 32-inch off-road tires (familiar?) and a slew of Mopar accessories. Inside, the Modern Warfare 3 Jeep has the series' logo stitched to its seats and a serialized plaque placed on the dash.
