So Universal's creating a re-make of the classic schlock-camp 70's futuregasm Death Race 2000, starring the always-willing-to-Transport Jason Statham and now they've released the first official screen shot of the action star in his broke n' busted but rebuilt whip. We've included the official synopsis below the jump and while one of us already knows the answer to the following question but since his information's embargoed — we'll see if y'all can guess it. Anyone know what car Statham's "Frankenstein" is driving?
"A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the Death Race.
Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames (Statham) is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn't commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein—a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill—Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island's warden (Joan Allen): suit up or rot away in a cell.
His face hidden by a metallic mask, one convict will be put through an insane three-day challenge. Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals in the country's toughest prison to claim the prize of freedom. Driving a monster car outfitted with machine guns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers, one desperate man will destroy anything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth."
