When our love for cars and movies combine, something magical happens. Some movie cars are so iconic that you can’t help but say, “Hey! That’s the car from…” This list is for the car enthusiast and film buff in all of us. Whether they’re known for their performance on the road or not, their performance on the silver screen is unforgettable.
1. Back to the Future series: DeLorean DMC 12 (1981)
John DeLorean only manufactured 9000 of the brushed steel, gull-wing door models in 1981 before bankruptcy but DMC’s one-year production run was long enough to achieve a starring role in one of the most well-loved hits of the 80’s.
2. James Bond films: Aston Martin (various)
Though the Bond films have featured Bentleys, BMWs, Saabs and more, none has become as iconic as the Aston Martin. From its first appearance in Goldfinger with the DB5 to its latest role in Quantum of Solace with the DBS V12, Aston Martin is synonymous with 007.
3. Wayne’s World: AMC Pacer (1977)
If you can see this car on the road and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” doesn’t pop into your head right away, why are you reading this? If it does, well party on!
4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: Ferrari 250 Spyder California GT (1961)
It’s the ultimate car for the ultimate day of playing hooky. Just don’t try to take miles off the odometer by running it in reverse. It doesn’t work that way.
5. Smoky and the Bandit: Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (1977)
This was perfect muscle car lover’s movie. Smokey was no match at all for its 200hp engine and T-top, not to mention Burt’s manly mustache!
