Top 5 Film Cars

“Whoa, whoa. You better watch what you say about my car. She's real sensitive.”
-Artie Cunningham, Christine

Some films are remembered for their acting. Some for their plots and twists. Some for the music. And some are remembered for the cars. There are countless automobiles in the history of cinema that are worthy of note, but here are 5 of the best.

5. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)

Model: Original design, by Ken Adam and Frederick Rowland Emett.
Despite being difficult to drive in real-life – Dick van Dyke described its turning radius being similar to that of a battleship – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is absolutely one of cinema’s finest rides. It’s colourful, it can fly, and it’s a big part of all of our childhoods. The original car sold for $805,000 in 2011 to none other than Sir Peter Jackson. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, we love you.

4. James Bond’s Car (GoldFinger)

Model: 1963 Aston Martin DB5
Everyone’s favourite womanizer James Bond has had many cars in his time, but there is one that takes the cake. The ’63 Aston Martin DB5 was the first car to be equipped with gadgets in the series, and old Q took the idea to the limit with revolving number plates, a GPS dashboard, tyre slashers, smoke screen, built-in machine guns, bullet-proof glass and of course, an ejector seat.

3. Christine (Christine)

Model: 1958 Plymouth Fury
‘She was born bad. Plain and simple. Somewhere deep on a darkened assembly line. Christine. A '58 Plymouth Fury possessed by Hell’ so says Christine’s marketing. Despite being evil, Christine is a truly beautiful machine. With a car as gorgeous as this, you’d be willing to forgive the fact it possesses you and commits murder.

2. The Time Machine (Back To The Future)

Model: 1981 De Lorean DMC-12
“You built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?” And with those words, cinematic history was made. Nobody in the world can look at a DeLorean without thinking of Doc Brown’s invention. Equipped with a flux capacitor (“what makes time travel possible”) and a Mr Fusion Home Energy Reactor, the driver of this legendary car is guaranteed to see some serious shit when it hits 88mph.

1. Ecto-1 (Ghostbusters)

Model: 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor

And finally, who ya gonna call? You’re absolutely not going to call the 2016 Ghostbusters *shudder*, you’re going to call the 1984 Ghostbusters. Ecto-1 needs to introduction, nor does it need any explanation of why it is at number 1. It is a legendary film car, and one of the most memorable. Admit it, you can hear its siren wailing as you read this.
