The car was equipped with front and rear lasers (in the headliner), grill mounted flame throwers (behind the grill), retractable bullet shield (which hid the weapons compartment), radar and sonar for tracking, a breaking parachute (behind the license plate), on board surveillance cameras, guided missiles (launched from tubes in the gull wing doors and engine compartment), retractable rear propellers (the car was amphibious), and smoke screen ejectors. The U.N.C.L.E. Car was custom built for the series by Gene Winfield by modifying the Dan Deavers designed AMT Custom and Speed limited edition Piranha kit car. The only stock component of the car was it's Corvair engine, the rest was custom, from it's fiberglass frame to it's cast aluminum suspension.

Felton and Sam Rolfe gave thought to an U.N.C.L.E. gun. "I wanted one gun capable of shooting single shots or rapid-fire automatic shots," Rolfe observed in a TV Guide interview, "with sound or silently. I also wanted sleep inducing darts, explosive bullets and just bullets, and a gun that could convert to a long-range rifle". In addition, the gun would have to be concealed from time to time, either on an agents person or broken down and hidden in an attache case. Of course, an actual gun with all these capabilities simply did not exist and it would be up to Bob Murdock, Arnold Goode and Marcel Vertoutier, the prop and special effects team along with toy designer Reuben Klamer to create the fantastic but believable U.N.C.L.E. Special.
