You can pretend you’re working with Agent Coulson to save the world from destruction when you drive around town in this official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D 2011 Acura MDX that’s up for auction on eBay.
The vehicle has been put up for auction by Scottsdale Motor Company and is one of only ten that were made for the movie, The Avengers. It started its life as just a standard 2011 Acura MDX but it got some revisions inside and out to make it ready for the big screen.
It came from the factory with all the usual accessories, including the Technology Package and leather seats, but got some nice upgrades to handle all the evil villains it would be facing in the film thanks to Cinema Vehicle Services (CVS). They specialize in transforming ordinary cars into extraordinary cars for movies.
They started by sanding down the paint that Acura used and giving it a stealthier flat black paint job. It then got fender flares from a Ford truck, a front push bar with an added upper bar that includes bolted on LED fog lamps, an LED light bar for the roof and 18″ tires.
Those tires didn’t exactly fit with the vehicle’s original suspension so they had to increase it by 2.5″ to make the bigger tires work. The finishing touches came in the form of logos that were painted onto the Acura MDX later by the studio’s film department after CVS finished their modifications.
Currently, the LED light bar on the roof has been removed, but they’ve got it on hand so you can just remove the plug holes and put it back where it belongs. They also have the original tires and say the whole thing can be brought back to factory specs, but why anyone would buy a S.H.I.E.L.D vehicle and undo its best parts are beyond me.
Bidding as of this moment is up to $20,100 with three days to go so head on over to ebay if you want to grab yourself a piece of movie history.
