Top 10 coolest movie cars of all time Pt.2
I had a lot of comments on my last post of other cars I missed out and I also thought of a few myself in the meantime. So, here are 10 more cool movie cars.
Herbie - The Love Bug
We all know Herbie, the Beetle with a heart. When I was little and watched this for the first time, I was blown away. This and Brum baffled me. A car that could drive itself? How cool!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Herbie may be able to drive itself but can it fly? Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was by far the most ingenious car to bless our screens. Ian Fleming took inspiration for this car from a series of aero-engined racing cars built by Count Louis Zborowski in the 1920s.
Peugeot 406 – Taxi
This Peugeot 406 has to be the best Peugeot ever on screen and probably one of the only. Not only did it look cool but it was wicked fast. I remember the first time I watched this film was in a French lesson at school (it’s based on a French film) and it was the coolest lesson I had ever had, maybe that’s why I didn’t do so well at French in the end...
Rolls Royce 100EX - Johnny English Reborn
We all know Rowan Atkinson from Mr Bean but he also is very well known for Johnny English where he was seen driving the Rolls Royce 100EX, a concept car built especially for the film which unusually had a 9.0L V16 engine which produces 770bhp. A huge upgrade from the standard 6.75L V12.
Aston Martin DB5 - Goldfinger
Think of the most iconic James Bond car, done? This is it. It doesn’t get more James Bond than a DB5. Especially in that lovely silver colour.
Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider - The Graduate
One of the smaller Hollywood heroes (apart from Tom Cruise) is the Alfa Romeo Spider seen in The Graduate. This exact one is currently for sale in Miami via Hemmings for $49,000 and has 75,000 miles on the clock.
Eleanor - Gone in 60 seconds
Apart from the Bullitt Mustang which Steve McQueen drove in Bullitt, Eleanor is the other famous one. Except this one was fully loaded with lots of goodies. They did in fact use two for the film, one for beauty shots and one for the stunts which had many, many modifications.
Lotus Esprit (Wet Nellie) - The Spy who loved me
While Chitty Chitty Bang Bang could fly and float, this little white Lotus could become a submarine. I’ll never forget the scene when it transforms. Such an iconic movie scene.
Citroen XM and Audi A8 - Ronin
If its chases you love then the chase in Ronin is one of the best. Neither cars are particularly fast but for some reason this chase was legendary.
Ferrari 308 GTS
I don’t know if you’re aware but this was actually a real Ferrari they used and it apparently had to be a GTS due to Tom Selleck being too tall to fit in GTB. Ferrari’s don’t tend to be real in Hollywood movies such as the 250 GT in Ferris Buellers Day off. But what do you think of the reboot? Was the 488 a good choice? I don't see why not!
