Warranty Direct has come up with a so-called “Halloween Horror Car” that combines components from various cars that are most prone to failure according to the company’s statistics.

Almost two weeks ago, insurance company Privilege released an image of a hypothetical car that combined the most beautiful parts of a car according to a survey. Now, Warranty Direct has come up with a similar monstrosity, only this time the imaginary car mixes up components from vehicles which according to the company’s findings are the most vulnerable to suffer malfunctions.

Known as the “Horrific H-0WL3R” or “Halloween Horror Car”, the car is the result of an in-depth analysis from 50,000 live policies and according to Warranty Direct the price to fix the damaged parts averages £487.

The car rides on Mazda 5’s axle and suspension (almost 75% failure rate) and is powered by an engine sourced from the Mitsubishi Outlander (48.3%) while the brakes are borrowed from the Mazda MX-5 (almost 50%). The steering system and gearbox are taken from the Chevrolet Tacuma (33%), along with the Honda CR-V’s air conditioning system (18.4%) and the electrics from a Lexus GS (67%).

The “Frankenstein” car is obviously a clever method of advertisement, but nonetheless it still sends a message concerning the cars you should avoid buying.
