12 Nov Famous Cars From Famous Movies
It seems like famous cars from famous movies go hand-in-hand. Everyone has a favorite movie that somehow just happens to have a famous car in it. My personal favorite is the 1970 Dodge Charger from the movie “The Fast and The Furious.” This super-charged matte black classic muscle car is a star unto itself. With a 528 cubic-inch Hemi V8, it is enough to get any diehard motorhead’s heart pumping.
For those of us that grew up in the iconic 1980’s, no two cars are more recognizable than the 1981 Delorean DMC-12 from “Back To The Future” and the 1981 Porsche 928 from “Risky Business.” Who among us hasn’t dreamed of climbing in alongside Doc Brown and traveling through time, or riding along with Tom Cruise for the ultimate party-while-the-parents-are-away?
The 1980’s introduced us to the 1980 Lamborghini Countach LP400S in the “Cannonball Run” movies. This sleek black, exotic sports car made legions of new fans in the United States, thanks to this movie series. The V-shaped spoiler over the rear deck made this a car that made a huge statement wherever it was seen.
The 1963 Aston Martin DB5 driven by James Bond in “Goldfinger” came to be viewed by many as the quintessential “spy car.” This car was every little boy’s dream that envisioned growing up to chase down bad guys and always win the girl. With its myriad of special gadgets hand-selected and modified by the enigmatic “Q”, this was one car that could be relied on to get the job done.
Elvis Presley made a lot of movies in his time, but perhaps the one that best showcased his love of fast cars was “Viva Las Vegas.” The 1962 Elva Mk. VI Maserati driven in the movie was actually 2 different cars. The first had to be garaged to fix a seized cam bearing.
Anyone who has kids, or was ever truly a kid themselves, recognizes the 1963 Volkswagen Model 115 Deluxe Sunroof Sedan affectionately known as “Herbie, The Love Bug.” Herbie starred in many movies over the years, always with the familiar #53 emblazoned on the side.
These are just a few examples of great movies that have showcased some pretty terrific cars over the years. I am sure I may have missed someone’s favorite, but this list is enough to show how great movies and great cars are a natural match.
