The Bluesmobile is a 1974 Dodge Monaco sedan that was prominently featured in the 1980 Universal Pictures film The Blues Brothers. The car is described as a decommissioned Mount Prospect police car, purchased by Elwood Blues at an auction after he had traded a previous car for a microphone. The Bluesmobile is equipped with a "440 Magnum" engine and squad car package, an option offered by Dodge for the Monaco in 1974. It bears an Illinois license plate reading "BDR 529", a tribute to the Black Diamond Riders motorcycle club of Toronto, Canada. Dan Aykroyd, co-writer of the film, stated that he chose the 440 Dodge Monaco because he considered it to be the hottest car used by police during the 1970s.

"It's got a cop motor, a 440-cubic-inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. So what do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what? "There's a lot to unpack with this quote, first of all, there's no such thing as "Cop Tires" or "Cop Shocks". Tire companies often offer high-performance tires to police departments for discounted rates or even for free in some cases, but tires made specifically for cop cars don't exist. The 440 Chrysler were indeed found in many Mopar squad cars of the period, the Dodge Polara Police Interceptor which was produced with the Moncao could reach 170 mph, just as fast as Ferraris of the day.
