The TWILIGHT CARS
WARNING: There are lots of spoilers in this post. If you haven’t read the Twilight series yet and has a plan to read them, then, don’t read this post.
You might be wondering who the Cullens are. If you have already read the Twilight series, then they might be very familiar. The Cullens is a family of “cold-blooded” vampires in Stephenie Meyer’s books. But they are no ordinary vamps you have read in old and boring bloodsucker legends. They are modern day vampires. They don’t explode and turn into ashes when hit by the sunlight. They don’t drink human bloods. They don’t sleep in filthy coffins. They don’t have long and sharp fangs. They don’t wear black robes. All in all, they don’t do those pathetic things you used to know about vampires.
The Cullen family is headed by Dr. Carlisle, the handsome doctor who managed to co-exist with mortals in his three hundred years of existence; Esmee, the suicide victim who has been given the chance to a life of immortality; Jasper, the one who can control emotions and is the best fighter in the family; Alice, the one who has the gift to see the future; Rosalie, the most beautiful vampire according to Bella; Emmett, he is Rosalie’s lover and gifted with unbelievable physical strength; Edward, the ninety year old plus vampire who fell in love with a human and has the power to read minds, and later on Bella, the ordinary teen-ager who accepted her destiny to live the life as one of the immortal ones. These modern day vampire characters who graced the pages of Stephenie Meyer’s books became the keys to the series phenomenal success. And because they are modern-day characters they drive the conventional and the hippest cars in town. Let’s start with Isabella Swan’s (Bella) 1953 Chevrolet Pickup Truck.
Bella’s Chevy Pickup
This vehicle was given by her father (Charlie). This was originally owned by Billy Black, Jacob Black’s father. Anyways, Jacob is Bella’s best friend. This is the truck she used in going to her new school after she decided to continue her high school study in Forks. Forks, Washington is actually the main setting of all Twilight Saga Series. Next is Edward’s Volvo, the silver S60R.
This is the car he used from book 1 to book 3. I noticed that this is not mentioned in book 4. Next is Rosalie’s BMW M3 convertible.
Next is Carlisle’s Mercedes S55 AMG.
This is the vehicle he uses at work. Next is Emmett’s Jeep Wrangler.
Next is Edward’s “special occasion” car, the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.
This is the car he used when he took Bella to the Prom in book 1. Next is Alice’s Porsche 911 Turbo.
This yellow porshe became Alice’s obsession when she and Bella went to Italy. Edward gave this to her as a special gift in exchange for her service in “baby-sitting” Bella. Next is Bella’s Mercedes S600 Guard.
This is the pre-wedding car Edward gave to Bella in book4. Stephenie Meyer called this in the book as Mercedes Guardian. This is the car that awed the two youngsters in the gasoline station when Bella stopped there. They assumed that she must be something since she’s driving a car that is used by the VIPs who are in need of high security. They don’t even think that this kind of vehicle has been released already in the market. They were too awed that they asked Bella’s permission to take a few snapshots so that their friends would believe them that such kind of car did really exist. And last, but not the least, is another Bella’s car. It is her ‘after’ car, a Ferrari F430.
This is Edward’s post-wedding gift to her. She used this car in the middle and last parts of book 4. Bella is actually more exciting and more enticing in character in the last book. Breaking Dawn is definitely the the best book in the series.
Twilight (book 1) the movie will be shown here in PI this December. The US premier will be on 11th of November. New Moon (book 2) will also be in big screens by 2010. Eclipse (book 3), and Breaking Dawn (book 4) would definitely follow. I hope Midnight Sun (book 5) will be published soon. I can’t wait to read Edward Cullen’s side of the story.
