THE SIMPSONS: See the Real Version of Homer’s Dream Car! Plus, Teases For Season 25
August 30, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
Back in 1991, THE SIMPSONS’ Homer Simpson designed his perfect car in the episode “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” And now, a real-life version of The Homer was used to race at the 24 hours Of LeMons earlier this summer.
“This is a dream come true,” THE SIMPSONS creator Matt Groening told reporters on the Fox lot yesterday, as he and fellow executive producers Al Jean and James L. Brooks got to see the real car for the first time. “This is an episode fans have loved since it was first broadcast in 1991. We certainly did not to expect a real car out of an early SIMPSONS episode. We are astonished and delighted.”
Take a look at photos of the (delightfully awesome) car, plus video with the producers and car designer Jeff Hermann and team captain/driver Scott Chamberlain talking about the car and what’s to come on the show…
Isn’t the car just so freaking cool?
THE SIMPSONS premieres Sunday, September 29th at 8 PM on Fox.
