Super rare de voir une Chevy Impala convertible. En tous cas, moi, c'est bien le premiere que je vois dans un film. Et encore plus rarement dans la vie :)

Hunter S thompson's personal car was loaned for use in the movie. in the book,it is the shark (this car) which is trashed instead of the caddy.

I can tell there were at least two cars used in the movie- In one scene where Raoul Duke is trying to leave the hotel, and in the police chase, you can see that the car has white 73-74 interior door panels, where in other shots the car has the correct 71-72 style panels. They probably fixed up Hunter's actual Impala for the movie and then built a secondary car from whatever parts they could find.

I just finished the book...the Impala was abused, but the Cadillac was the one outright destroyed in the book. It was driven into Lake Mead, jumped across a highway median and through a fence, drove at over 100 mph down an airport runway, and had it's tires inflated to 75 psi (as an "experiment") among other misadventures.

Johnny Depp actually swapped his car for Thompson's so he could drive it around and get used to it. That, and he stole some of Thompson's clothes...

Hunter S. Thompson, unsurprisingly, wrote a book about the time he drove around in Depp's car with a girl named Heidy. He titled it Fear and Loathing in Hollywood: My Doomed Love at the Taco Stand.

That's correct; I noticed one interior shot where "Caprice" is written on the glove compartment in script instead of "Impala".

Looks like this one has optional 400 (402 CID) engine fitted in. So model 16467.
