A British vehicle comparison website has imagined what it would look like if Game of Thrones characters had cars. You could argue that the addition of motoring to the Westeros landscape would make it a bit more feasible when characters travel halfway across the map in the blink of an eye. ('Beyond the Wall' director Alan Taylor has even publicly commented on Thrones' season 7 timeline fudging, at this point.)
Indeed, Game of Thrones season 7 has been racing along with the speed of a nitro-boosted engine. Some have argued that the show needs to slow down and spread its plot across more seasons, claiming that the episodes are getting increasingly hectic in this shortened seventh run. Season 7 has certainly picked up speed, compared to the pacing for previous seasons of the show.
And now, with one week left to go in Game Of Thrones season 7, CarKeys.co.uk and designer Javier Oquendo have answered the question that nobody (somebody?) was asking: “If your favourite Game of Thrones characters had cars, what would they drive?” Firstly, they imagined that Arya Stark would favor a Jaguar F-TYPE Winter Edition (see below), because she needs “something fast yet adaptable”.
If Daenerys Targaryen was a bit less interested in ‘breaking the wheel’, and a lot more keen on picking out a set of wheels, she would go for a McLaren P1 LM. CarKeys’ description posits that this motor is “equally as beautiful and terrifying as one of her three dragons”:
Cersei Lannister has a lot on her plate right now, even though it is possible that the White Walker invasion will work out in her favor. Still, if she had the time to go out and buy a flash new car, apparently she’d opt for a Rolls-Royce Phantom. It’s described as “the perfect ride for slow cruising around the city with her brother/ lover”, which doesn’t sound creepy at all:
Robert Baratheon died in season 1. But if he was alive, and if cars existed in Westeros, it seems that a Ferrari F12 TDF would be his mode of transport of choice. CarKeys’ blog asks the totally sensible question, “Could King Robert’s spirit linger on in his F12?” Now that’s a plotline that no one predicted.
Game of Thrones season 7 concludes next week, with its longest episode yet. In other recent developments related to the show, it’s been teased that a “violent” fate is in store for the Stark sisters. And on top of all that, we've got everything you need to know about dragons right here.
