Sometimes it’s not the actors in a movie that make the film so memorable. In some cases, the cars are what we remember. The fast ones, or the ones with extra-special features that play as big a role as any actor. Check out this list of cars and see if you agree.
A couple of Bond cars made this list from Popular Mechanics. First on the list is the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that was featured in Goldfinger. Also on the list is the 1976 Lotus Esprit Series I that became a submarine in The Spy Who Loved Me.
Who can forget the 1977 Pontiac Trans Am that we loved watching Burt Reynolds drive in Smokey and the Bandit?
A bit more recently, there were the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies that featured some 1970 Dodge Chargers.
Some didn’t rely on speed for their purpose in the movie. Nobody can see a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 without wondering if it has a flux capacitor like the one in Back to the Future.
There were also ones that were highly modified, like the ‘Batmobile’ in Batman Begins or ‘The Gigahorse’ that was created from several Cadillacs and Chevys from Mad Max: Fury Road.
Other cars that made the list were the 1968 Mustang GT 390 from Bullitt, the 1970 Dodge Challenger from Vanishing Point and the 1969 Mustang from Keanu Reeves’ John Wick.
