The ghostbustin' reboot comes with a new look for the spectre-chasing Ecto-1 car, so we took the souped-up 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood station wagon for a spin to see what it's all about.
In the new movie, the Ghostbusters head to spooky calls in a souped-up 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood station wagon with a Eureka Hearse body.
The new car replaces the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance that transported the team in the original movies.
If there's something strange in your neighbourhood... The Cadillac logo is replaced with a suitably ghostly badge.
Director Paul Feig chose the new car because it reminded him of the cars his dad had.
Look at that slab of a hood. Under there is a 5-litre V8 with a four-speed automatic gearbox.
In the film, Patty, played by Leslie Jones, borrows the car from her uncle, a funeral director played by a face that will be familiar to "Ghostbusters" fans.
The car starts out as a black hearse, but looks very different once the team's tech expert Holtzman (Kate McKinnon) gets her hands on it.
Ecto-1 is equipped with long-range psychokinetic energy (PKE) scanners.
The specialised spook-spotting kit includes a proton pack pump-out connection with positive and negative polarised spectral foam detectors.
The ghostbusting kit is fuelled by a power cell with hydrogen and liquid helium tanks.
Ecto-1's tech specs.
Roadshow and Carfection's Drew Stearne drove a replica of the new Ecto-1. That's possibly not a real movie costume either.
The new Ecto-1 hits the streets of London.
Behind the wheel.

We didn't see any ghosts, but we definitely turned heads as we cruised around East London.
