‘The Simpsons’ Car: Vehicle Designed By Homer Simpson Built In Real Life

A car that Homer Simpson designed in The Simpsons episode, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?, has been built in real life by an eager fan of the seminal animation comedy.

This instalment of the show, which originally broadcast on February 21, 1991, in its second season, revolved around Homer discovering his half-brother, Herb Powell, was alive and the head of a car manufacturer.

Herb, who was voiced by It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Danny DeVito, invites Homer to design a concept car, called The Homer, which when it is unveiled, ruins his company, Powell Motors, and sinks Herb into bankruptcy.

Now a team of mechanics have built a life-size replica of this machine, and they’re actually going to race it, in California’s 24 Hours LeMons competition.

This event requires entrants to spend less than $500 to buy and then modify their vehicles. This is despite the fact that Homer’s car apparently cost $82,000 to buy in the episode.

Some of the car’s features included two bubble domes, one of which is in the front, while the other is in the back for fighting kids, plus it comes with optional muzzles and restraints, as well as a car horn that sounds as if “the world’s coming to an end.”

There are also three other horns, as Homer states that “you can never find a horn when you’re mad,” whilst the other plays the song “La Cucaracha.”

There are also gigantic cup holders and bubble domes, shag carpeting and tailfins, all of which were “designed for the average man.”

The team behind this incredible creation are Porcubimmer Motors, and they will be racing The Homer on June 29, in Buttonwillow, California.

The car also features another Simpsons gag, as its license plate reads, “BORT,” which is a joke from a previous episode of the hit comedy.
