Iconic vehicles from Jurassic Park, Fast & the Furious, Breaking Bad, Gone in 60 Seconds, Casino Royale, Magnum P.I. and more on show at Dubai's new outdoor motoring, sports, and urban lifestyle festival
Dubai, UAE – Thursday 25th November, 2021: A dazzling array of replica vehicles from some of Hollywood's most classic movies and TV shows are turning heads at #NoFilerDXB – a super trendy new festival celebrating Dubai's enduring passion for urban lifestyle and motoring culture, which runs at Dubai Harbour until Saturday 27th November.
Covering Hollywood blockbusters and fan favourite TV shows dating back decades, #NoFilterDXB's garage of iconic replica vehicles includes the open-top Jeep Wrangler from Steven Spielberg's 1993 dinosaur classic, Jurassic Park. The beige and red Jeep, which was memorably destroyed by the film's rampaging T-Rex, has generated an endless slew of memes linked to stars Sam O'Neill and Laura Dern first observing the park's roaming dinosaurs from the vehicle.
Taking a trip back in time to where it all began for Vin Diesel and Paul Walker's legendary characters, Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner, #NoFilterDXB houses identical replicas of the Dodge Charger 1963 and Mitsubishi Eclipse from the very first installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise. The two cars were part of one of the most famous street race battles of all time – but, sadly, they won't be jumping over any trains at #noFilterDXB.
Fans of the award-winning TV series Breaking Bad, whose lead star Brian Cranston was in Dubai last week, will have a hard time forgetting main protagonist Walter White's daily drive, the lackluster Pontiac Aztek – now regarded as one of the most recognisable 5-seater SUV from the early to mid-2000's. While this Aztek hasn't seen nearly as much trouble as the one in the hit TV series, the Breaking Bad tribute car is as close you can get to the real thing. Fun Fact: the Breaking Bad color Aztek was never produced by Pontiac!
#NoFilterDXB also features the Aston Martin DBS from Daniel Craig's modern James Bond classic Casino Royale; the customized Shelby Mustang GT500 – dubbed ‘Eleanor' - from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie; and the bright red 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole driven by actor Tom Selleck in 1980s TV show Magnum P.I.
“Alongside the new-to-market reveals, Electric Vehicle and hybrid regional launches, and dazzling assortment of custom and supercars, we have a quirky selection of some of the most iconic vehicles from classic Hollywood movies and TV shows. These cars are fun windows into the past that give visitors something extra to smile about and share on social media. Much like the city we call home, we want #NoFilterDXB to be about making amazing memories that last a lifetime,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Executive Vice President of Events Management at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), the organiser of #NoFilterDXB.
#NoFilterDXB will culminate in the Dubai Supercar Parade on Saturday at 8.30am. The Parade will see some of the world's most sought-after supercars rolling through the streets of Dubai Harbour, JBR, and JLT, before returning to #NoFilterDXB for public viewing.
