Hot Rod City Las Vegas and Michael Dezer, owner of one of the world’s largest vehicle collections at The Miami Auto Museum, announce the grand opening of the new Hollywood Cars Museum Las Vegas. The recent partnering with Dezer, one of the world’s foremost car collectors, has resulted in a 30,000 sq.-ft.

The museum is now home to five James Bond vehicles including the Lotus Esprit Submarine Car driven by Roger Moore in the 1977 film, The Spy Who Loved Me, Batmobiles from both TV and film adaptations, Doc Hudson‘s Hornet from the animated Pixar film “Cars,“”Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” from the movie of the same name, the “Back to the Future” Delorean, the “Knight Rider” pursuit car (one of two in the world,) the bullet ridden car from the newest “Green Hornet” movie, “Herbie the Love Bug,” “Bonnie and Clyde‘s” death car from the movie, and vehicles from the first film in the “Fast and Furious” series, including one that was driven by the late Paul Walker.
Wild masterpieces from beyond the realm of Hollywood and our imaginations include a bunk bed hot rod, the Red Baron, a piano car, surfbuggie car, and a 40 foot pink hot tub convertible limo, which was profiled on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
The Hollywood Cars Museum features some of the most recognizable and unique cars used in the entertainment industry.
