Late one night, a mysterious car is brought into the Chicago police impound garage after a deadly traffic accident. The on-call mechanics soon discover the car has a mind of its own. With hundreds of horsepower and two tons of reinforced steel at its command, it's a seemingly unstoppable killing machine capable of outrunning -- and outwitting -- humans. Written by
During filming a large number of crew fell ill due to location conditions. The majority of the film was shot in an underground parking garage and there was insufficient air flow to release the fumes caused by the vehicles. See more »
At one point the four surviving characters are shown driving through the garage in a police cruiser and park it in front of the ramp to block the hybrid in. When they get out of the car all four of them get out at the same time which would not be possible in a real police car because the rear passenger doors of police vehicles are designed without internal handles and can only be opened from outside.

More entertaining than most "good, professional" movies available out there
Well, I must say the movie is better than some of the reviews here make it out to be. There are way more stupid "horror" films out there. The first 30 minutes were intriguing, that is up to the point that the guys still have no idea what they are dealing with. From there on, it turns into a "creature feature" movie with the car emitting some freaky noise. (Why didn't it do that before it was known what it actually was?) It was rather fun to watch how they went about hunting the "car" or to be more exact, how the car went about hunting them!
Here's how it feels to watch this. You all know those movies where a killer in a car is chasing a victim in the dark to run him over. Well, that's exactly what you will get here from the beginning to the end, except that there's no killer.
The movie could've been a lot better if the makers decided to crush some nice sports car like the red one in the beginning, but, due to its being low-budget, all the cars are old and uninteresting. Wouldn't the creature be able to chase his food if it was a fast Ferrari? The design of the creature was awful. They could've done better. The most annoying character in the movie was Ray (the boss). He made the movie a pain to sit through and I think he shouldn't have survived. The "nicer" guy should have, like it's the norm in movies.
There's nothing scary about this movie and since it doesn't look professional at all, it gets boring after 60 minutes. It would've made the movie a lot more interesting if they didn't limit the scenes to the garage and took it out on the street and even better if the police or the military got involved, but you know explosion scenes would require a lot of budget, that which this movie lacked. One thing is for sure. This is not a movie that anyone would watch more than once. It's not great but it's not bad either. It definitely deserves a 5. Actually, it was way more entertaining than most "good, professional" movies available out there.
