ford dealer reimagines 8 iconic retro game consoles as cars

the game console of instantly recognizable as an icon of nostalgia, thanks to its standout design. all you need to do is show a game boy color to any noughties kid to bring back flooding memories of childhood. now, the car retailers at jennings ford direct have taken the design language from our much-loves consoles and translated it into vehicle form. this way, even though the retro consoles themselves may be fast becoming redundant, the memory of their design will live on in a future-friendly format.

the atari 2600 car sports a tempting-looking ‘on’ lever to get it started

 

 

the team at jennings ford direct set themselves the challenge of transforming some of the funkiest games consoles of yesteryear into their car counterparts. in a time where tech giants like google and apple are dipping into the world of automotive design, there’s no reason why nintendo and sony shouldn’t get involved as well.


the NES model is a family favorite despite its boxy appearance

 

 

the collection of designs features classic consoles such as the atari 2600—complete with its trademark faux-wood panelling and a chunky black chassis—and the good old playstation 2 car, decked out with an 128-bit, 294 Mhz emotion engine running under the hood. the game boy color also makes an appearance, designed aptly as a reliable model that will never let you down, along with the nintendo switch—a sporty two-seater that looks like it’s ready for anything.


the xbox 360 is never one to skimp on technology, and its car counterpart takes driverless form

 

 

the console car line-up also includes the good old xbox 360, which—never one to be behind on technology—is of course a driverless model. the last three places are taken by the elegant indigo gamecube, the sleek sega genesis, and a boxy—yet—loveable NES mobile, which is a car perfectly kitted out for the whole family.


the gameboy color is an iconic and reliable model, that wont leave you out of gas


the gamecube car is easy on the eye, and even easier to manoever


the powerful playstation automobile looks like it means business


the sega genesis is sleeker than its car competitors, reaching high speeds on the roads


the nintendo switch is a sporty two-seater that’s ready for anything
