Moonwalker video Stratos Zero replica - click above for high-res image gallery

First of all, HA HA HA! Second, yes, this is the car used in Michael Jackson's 1988 film Moonwalker. Now, even the King of Pop couldn't get Lancia to cough up the original Zero, so a replica was built by movie car maker Andy Saunders, based on a Fiat and complete with a four-cylinder engine.

It should be pretty apparent to any pistonhead worth their slightly used crankcase oil that the wedgy Zero was penned by none other than car designer extraordinaire Marcello Gandini. Not only is there a whole lotta Countach going on, but a third-helping of Lancia Stratos, too. Some of the more observant amongst you might be yelling, "Hey – the O.G. Zero is brown, not orange!" We share your pain, but for some reason Jacko wanted sherbert.

Now, the one-off replica of the one-off Zero Bertone concept car has the low, low reserve price of just $100,000 -- better start bidding before someone else beats you to this wonderful piece of automotive history. And for those of you totally missing the sarcasm gene, let us just add: HA HA HA!

      Ok, let's keep it all fair then. I'm not sure what religion you practice, but I'm sure you know some Catholic people. Did the Catholic people you know denounce their respective churches and faith, when all the priest that were ACCUSED were CONVICTED of the same sexual child abuse that people are accusing MJ of??? Hmmm...I think not! So, that's funny, MJ was ALLEGED then ACQUITTED, but the Priest were CONVICTED and STILL FOLLOWED.

      Hmmm....Which people did more harm and were more in deservance of negative slander??? MJ, I think not!

      Wee hee...

      Ow!!!

      This was my fav part of Moonwalker. I was prolly the only kid in a 150 mile (arbitrary, coulda been larger) radius who knew exactly what that was... and was disappointed when I could tell it wasn't the real deal.

      However, once I learned who Andy Saunders was (and saw his totes OTT creations) all was forgiven.

      The story that never dies.

      The windshield is the door, and there is no bumper, sounds dangerous to drive.

      Y'all can hate on Michael Jackson all you want, but I could care less. You people act like you were never MJ fans, like he never did anything fo rthe world. I swear I'm sick of the "Crabs in a Bucket" society. That man did all those good things for the world, gave us a childhood full of joy and great music, donated all that money...and yet the only thing people want to focus on are the fews negative blemishes he had in his life...of which, he was AQUITTED of by a court of law. Let it go! I know you guys want to the think MJ was a pedofile, but he was never proven as such, so he doesn't deserve to be labeled one.

      In any case...Michael Jackson Moon Walker was one of my all-time favorite childhood movies. As kid I watched it at least 30 times. I my favorite part was when he turned into the car. I never knew what car that was until today. That entire movie was amazing, especially the Smooth Criminal sequence.

      R.I.P. MJ...You're a legend, and legends never die, they live forever. As will you!

        Yeah you're right so when are you gonna let the next twice accused paedophile babysit your kids? Oh wait most paedophiles don't have 20 million dollars to pay kids and families off so probably would have been convicted the first time!
        • 5 Years Ago
        I can honestly say I was never a MJ fan.....ever. But you're right, if you do enough good for the world you should be able to ruin the lives of a few kids. Acceptable losses right?

        @ Chad.
        "ruin the lives of a few kids."

        Prove it. As far as the judicial system is concerned. You are wrong.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Come on, guys. I'm a fan of MJ's music, but let's face it. He's a pedophile. He did sleep overs with little boys. That's not something you just ignore.

        One more thing,

        WooooooooooooooHooooooooo. Wooo!
        • 5 Years Ago
        "As will you!"

        Um. Have you heard the news yet? He did die!

        RIP MJ

        I will never understand this celebrity worship idiocy.

        Yeah, he made a few good songs that I liked as a kid. Sure, he did a few good deeds here and there. At the end of the day, he was just a man. A man with some serious issues, a man not worthy of any sort of worship. A man who had a promising career, but threw it all away.

        He didn't do anything for me. He never fought for my freedom. Who cares.

        I'll give you that, MJ was strange. You can't deny that. But really, who isn't? I'm sure alot of people are weird when the doors are closed.

        He's not beyond reproach it's just that everyone only remembers the negative parts of his life, but never the success and blessings to lay upon many people across the world. That's what get me bent out of shape. You're focusing on the single drop drop of negative, with respect to the bucket-full of positive he provided.

        That's what I mean by "Crabs in a Bucket" society. As soon as one starts to progess and ascend, there are always more, waiting for one leg to drop back down, so they can pull it back down in the bucket. It's sad.

        But, anyway. Very cool car. I'm glad I know what it is now.

      "Hey little boy, do you like my car? Want to go for a ride?"

      I kid, I kid.

        @Epyx

        I'm pretty sure that was a requested feature, you know so he could take the kids to the jungle down town... in his pants... Too soon?
        • 5 Years Ago
        They told him "Don't you ever come around here
        Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear"
        The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear
        So beat it, just beat it....

      That has to be the most awkward driving position.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Actually this car was not built by Andy Saunders as a Moonwalker movie car. He built it recently because he wanted a Lancia Zero and he found a shell made for use by the film. He had absolutely nothing to do with the film.

      I have a some british car mag around here somewhere that has an article about it. It's based of the Fiat X/19.

      Andy also restored the 1957 Aurora safety car.

        Additionally, Marcello Gandini's last name is spelled without an H. And here I thought Jonny would fix everything that's wrong with AB.

        As according to his website, was not made by him for the movie. This is damn sloppy journalism guys. There's around a 17 year difference from the movie and when the car was built
