1990 "Total Recall" Movie Car


Movie Car From  "Total Recall"

Design & Built by Mike  Fennel for Arnold Schwarzenegger Film


With a budget between 50 and 65  million in 1990. Total Recall was one of the most expensive films  made at the time of its release - not surprisingly it debuted at  number one at the box office.   No expense was spared and this included  bringing to screen some innovative and futuristic car designs to the film.    Acclaimed custom car designer and restorer Mike  Fennel was brought in to meet their needs. and his name appears as a "Production Credit"  for "picture vehicles" for the film Total Recall.


For Auction Today


"Mike Fennel Enterprises" was  retained to develop several cars for the film with each one bearing the  identification tag for his company and the number built.   This particular  car has this badge affixed to the driver's side area of the cockpit opening  showing it to be serial number 001.   


This custom built car is based  on a modified design of the 3-wheel "Trimuter" by Robert Riley.   Fennel  Enterprises purchased Robert Riley's original show  car and modified it to become the movie car for Total Recall.   The front and rear rims. interior and other items exactly match the  car for auction.   After the film was completed. the show car was kept by Mike Fennel until his passing in 2012 at which time it was  sold at public auction. From there it made its way from California to the team  at Undiscovered Classics and Forgotten Fiberglass in Tampa. Florida.  


Once restored. this would make  a great piece for a museum.   It would also be a fun addition for the  automobile collector who wants something a bit different to enjoy and share with  others.   You'll have the only one at every show you attend.   This  car is being sold "as-is" in unrestored and non-running condition.
