Today, the world’s favourite TV show is returning for its seventh season. Games of Thrones is ready to grace our screens with more depravity, death, sex and Machiavellian machinations. Last season reshaped the political map of Westeros with this season leading to a clash the likes of which the show has never seen.
We’ve imagined what the characters of Game of Thrones would be if they were cars. It would change the entire dynamic of the show for certain, but it is fun to imagine. Instead of Lightning McQueen from the Pixar Disney Cars series, we have Lightning Lannister instead.
Which car is your favourite GOT character?
Spoilers! – although seriously if you haven’t caught up with GOT now, it is your own fault.
These are the cars we imagined the character as. Do you agree with us or do you have other ideas?
Cersei Lannister – Rolls Royce Phantom
The Queen of Westeros is a lover of pomp and style. She enjoys people knowing she is present and constantly wishes to appear in control. With all her riches and ideas of grandeur, she would be driven in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Jaime Lannister – Aston Martin DB11
The disgraced former commander of the Kingsguard, Jaime Lannister is a poser who at the beginning of the show has masses of self-confidence, which is slowly whittled down. But now he is on the rise, making a massive comeback, both on the show and in the hearts of the audience. That means the only car for Jaime is the Aston Martin DB11.
Joffrey Baratheon – Lamborghini Aventador
Joffrey was the spoilt brat king of Westeros and demanded he had the best, despite being the worst. He commanded he should be crowned within two weeks of the King’s death and demanded a great feast for his Name Day (birthday). Therefore, there is only one car for him and that is a gold Lamborghini Aventador.
Tyrion Lannister – Volkswagen Golf
The show favourite, amongst the audience at least, is the most popular character, with many fans claiming that if he dies (Valar Morghulis – all men must die) they will stop watching. Tyrion has been abused throughout the show. He has to drive the best car in the world amongst the people. The Volkswagen Golf.
Jon Snow – Jaguar F-Type
Jon Snow is the man who knows nothing, whilst succeeding at quite a lot. As the apparently illegitimate child of Ned Stark (Season Six answered that query),Jon Snow joined the Night’s Watch to gain his own honour and fulfil his duty. So the obvious choice for him is the dutiful, British sports car - the Jaguar F-Type.
Ned Stark – Delorean DMC-12
Ned Stark, like the Delorean, made a great first impression and was loved by all. If it had been any other fantasy TV show, Ned would have been sat on the Iron Throne by the end of the first season, but this isn’t a normal show. It is Game of Thrones and therefore, Ned makes you love him and Joffrey took his head (spoilt brat king!).
Arya Stark – Volkswagen UP
Volkswagen UP is perfect for Arya Stark. Small, reliable and loved by all. That’s the UP as well as Arya. Arya has had an interesting time in recent seasons and we think she needs a reward for her hard work. A Volkswagen UP seems appropriate.
Sansa Stark – Mercedes A-Class
Game of Thrones is brutal to all its characters, but no one has suffered more than Sansa Stark. First, she watched her father beheaded, beaten by Joffrey, married off to Tyrion, then married to Ramsey Bolton and tortured. The tide has now turned in her favour. She is all grown up and taking revenge. The car for her is the new Mercedes A-Class. The first generation of the A-Class was weak, but the newest model has grown into something strong and special, just like Sansa.
Varys – Porsche 918 Spyder
Varys or “The Spider” is the spymaster of Westeros. The Master of Whispers. He knows everything before anyone else thanks to his “Little Birds”, but what car do you give a spider? A Spyder, obviously. What better Spyder could you give than the Porsche 918 Spyder. It has the looks, the power, the speed and the technology to change the automotive world in the same way Varys aims to change Westeros.
Daenerys Targaryen – Ford Focus RS
Daenerys had a rough start to the show, being sold into marriage and abuse to fund her brother’s ambition (he didn’t last long). She eventually fell in love with her husband before his end. She has since gone from strength to strength, whilst still suffering the occasional setback. She is now at her full strength with her army, navy and dragons heading for her homeland. When she gets there, a Ford Focus RS should be waiting for her.
The Mountain – Hummer H2
The Mountain is a huge knight in the service of the Lannisters and does whatever he is commanded to do, which includes the butchering of innocents. He does face a fate he rightly deserves in later series, but returns as a zombified knight. The Mountain would have to own a Hummer H2. Simply for its giant size.
Oberyn Martell – Dodge Viper
Oberyn Martell or the Red Viper as he is known is fast, suave and elegant. He deserves only one car to match his name and personality. He needs a red Dodge Viper. It is perfect for a man who dreams of revenge.
Ser Davos – Ford F-Series
Ser Davos is a trusted knight of Stannis Baratheon, being his Hand of the King and later after Stannis’ demise helps Jon Snow take back his home. He is a loyal, reliable and trusted man. The Ford F-Series would be perfect for a man of such calibre to drive across the land of Westeros.
Ramsey Bolton – Fiat Multipla
They are hated by many and always wish to be more than they truly are. Ramsey Bolton and the Fiat Multipla are made for each other. How does the most hated character to ever walk in Westeros choose his car? He picks a Fiat Multipla.
Littlefinger – Tesla Model S
Littlefinger is possibly the most dangerous and yet underestimated character in the whole of Westeros. He is constantly looking to the future and his own future, especially for his ambition, knows no bounds. The Tesla Model S is marking the way for Tesla and Littlefinger would love it.
Game of Thrones returns to our screen on Monday night at 9 PM on Sky Atlantic. You will learn to the fate of more characters and likely some of those you love will die (that is if you still risk loving any of them).
