This article examines the question of whether cars that are destroyed during filming for movies are actually fully functional. The answer largely depends on the situation; for instance, if a car is destroyed by a stunt driver, then it is usually a pre-built shell, and the car is not actually functional. If a car is destroyed in a special effects scene, then it may be a fully functional vehicle. Other factors can also affect whether a car is functional, such as the budget of the film and whether the production company is willing to make a car "explode" in a realistic way. In conclusion, the answer to the question of whether cars destroyed in movies are fully functional depends on the context and situation.
