10 Coolest Cars From Movies

Monday, January 10 by


When it comes to movies, hot girls and cars go together like Charlie Sheen and bad decisions. But the sad fact of the matter is, I’ve always been more impressed with the cars. Unlike with hot chicks, I might have a chance to touch the cars without ending up as the basis for and episode of “SVU.”

The Green Hornet opens this Friday, and features Black Beauty: a tricked-out 1965 Chrysler Crown Imperial. The car looks pretty bad ass, but how does it stack up to other classic cinematic rides? Take a look at the list below and judge for yourself.

See more Sony “Action Unleashed” DVDs!

Aston Martin DB5 – Goldfinger

Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 first appeared in Goldfinger, and was featured in several subsequent films. The car is awesome on its own, but Bond’s is loaded with special features; specifically, an ejector seat. How sweet is that for dates?

Fozzie’s Studebaker – The Muppet Movie

Fozzie inherits his car from an uncle who is hibernating. At first, it’s not much to look at. But Doctor Teeth and his band give the vehicle a psychedelic makeover.

The Interceptor – Mad Max 2 / Road Warrior

If you’re known as “The Road Warrior,” you better have an awesome car to back you up. Mad Max has just that. Unfortunately, The Interceptor doesn’t make it through the film.

The Mutt Cuts ‘Shaggin Wagon’ – Dumb & Dumber

Originally designed as a vehicle for Harry’s dog cutting gig, the boys end up using it on their journey to Denver. Clearly, a car like this gets all the bitches.

Herbie – The Love Bug

I don’t really like Herbie, but the damn thing has a mind of its own, so I have to respect it. Besides, when it comes to cars that are self-aware, it’s a billion times better than Christine.

The Deathmobile – Animal House

If your goal is to destroy a small town parade, there’s no better choice than the Deathmobile. Just look at that terrifying facade and tell me you aren’t frightened.

The Bluesmobile – The Blues Brothes

The Bluesmobile is part of one of the greatest car chases in film history, and takes more abuse than any car should have to take. It even manages to hang on until the very end, before completely falling apart. RIP.

Ectomobile – The Ghostbusters

If you need to catch and transport ghosts, your Ford Focus isn’t going to cut it. You need the Ectomobile.

Batmobile – Batman Returns

I chose the Batmobile from the Tim Burton films. That’s not a slight against the Nolan films, since the Tumbler is awesome. But Burton’s version actually looks like the classic Batmobile, so it edged out the competition.

The Delorean – Back to the Future

Say what you want about the Delorean’s style. Some people love it, and some people hate it. But once you factor a flux capacitor into the mix, it becomes the coolest car around, hands down.

    As to the comment about the Batmobile, it never looked like that until the Burton films. It was always just some kind of normal car (chevy, porche, studebaker) with either fins, a face on the front that vaguely resembled the cowl or both.

    Whoever wrote this article has no clue about “cool movie cars”. The Shaggin Wagon or the Deathmobile??? Gimme a break. Where are some of the classics from George Barris? If I had written the above article, I would be ashamed to admit it.

    The Batmobile most people recognize is from the ’60′s tv show and that was constructed from a Lincoln Futura, a concept car made by Ford. George Barris redesigned the Futura and came up with the Batmobile.
