TV and film cars are often overlooked, but some of them deserve more than just a passing glance. From James Bond's clever car to Doc's time machine, here are our 10 favourite four-wheeled stars of the screen.
1. The Spy Who Loved Me – 1977 Lotus Esprit
The car featured in the film, called Wet Nellie, was actually a custom-built submarine. Who wouldn’t want a clever hybrid car like that?
2. Back to the Future – 1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Doc’s time machine had us lusting after this winged wonder.
3. Miami Vice – 1986 Ferrari Testarossa
This iconic 80s car was a perfect match for James ‘Sonny’ Crockett’s snappy suits.
4. Knight Rider – 1982 Customized Pontiac Trans Am
Michael Knight’s car K.I.T.T became a beloved icon. David Hasselhoff’s personal K.I.T.T. car was sold at auction in 2014.
5. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California
The classic car featured in the film was actually a fake, just as well…One of the 3 replicas used on set was crashed into a ravine at the end of the film.
6. Thelma and Louise – 1966 Ford Thunderbird
Despite the movie’s tragic ending, this classic car became synonymous with the great American road trip.
7. Starsky and Hutch – 1975 Ford Gran Torino
Starsky’s car, affectionately known as the striped tomato, was the perfect sidekick for the crime-fighting duo.
8. The Love Bug – 1962 Volkswagen Beetle
We all fell in love with this car with a mind of its own. It certainly is one of the cutest film star cars ever!
9. Bullitt – 1968 Mustang GT 390
Steve McQueen’s green Mustang Fastback GT, the real star of the film, featured in the most famous big-screen car chase.
10. Goldfinger – 1964 Aston Martin DB5
This iconic car is the epitome of class and a natural choice for 007.
