That's the second largest land vehicle in the world at 2700 tons! Fuel consumption is 150gpm (Gallons per mile!!!)

No, this is real. They even filmed some scenes on an airplane in high atmostspheres in order to get the real weightlessness rather than having the actors move around in a slo-mo fashion.

Low mileage, first owner.
The pair of crawlers, officially named KSC Crawler Transporters, has just made a little over 2,500 miles in the last 43 years. They will also be used for the Ares rockets of the post Space Shuttle era.

The first crawler, named 'Hans', was delivered November 1st, 1964, the second, 'Franz', in 1965. Due to the high costs of $14 million each they were nicknamed 'Them Golden Slippers'.

This shows the size a little better:

The IMDB says:
Quote Footage of the Saturn V was computer generated specifically for this film; no Saturn V stock footage was used.


I would guess that the crawler, tower and rocket are all computer graphic models added to a real shot of the roads.
