Famous Picture Cars

There are iconic personalities, abiding melodies, and expressive passages, but usually, the set of tires will steal the show in films. Some are more functional, some better customized, all absolutely unforgettable. From the classically dapper Aston Martin to an old beat-up station wagon, here are a sampling of the most renowned movie cars.

250 GT California Spyder

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

If you're proceeding to neglect your studies and run wild about Chicago, a suitable vehicle is fundamental. Fortunately for Ferris, his best buddy Cameron's father just happened to own a cherry red 250 GT California Spyder. Unfortunately, although Ferris, his friends – and a couple of fortunate parking garage associates – appreciated the automobile, it did, sadly, encounter an untimely fate.


The Love Bug

 This epic car in Disney's 1968 movie The Love Bug was a pearl-white 1963 VW Beetle called Herbie. But, of course, the vehicle also came alive and could drive itself. As a result, Herbie has had a lengthy and satisfying career in the movie industry. The automobile has appeared in six movies, most lately 2005's Herbie: Fully Loaded.

Wagon Queen Family Truckster

National Lampoon's Vacation

It undoubtedly helps to have the right vehicle for cross-country road expeditions. Unfortunately for the Griswolds, they have no choice but to set off in the Wagon Queen Family Truckster. The station wagon was longer than most and included a creamy avocado and metallic green color scheme, ample phony wood-paneling, and eight headlights. The well-known film car was constructed expressly for the flick. Nevertheless, it was established on a 1979 Ford LTD Country Squire.


Transformers franchise

We could document all the transformers on this list, but none experienced such an evolution upon lighting up the silver screen, or acquired its own film, as Bumblebee. The yellow motorcar was initially a VW Beetle but assumed the build of a Chevrolet Camaro in the movie franchise.

Aston Martin DB5

James Bond franchise

There are rarely more iconic movie personalities than James Bond and rare more iconic Bond visions than him gripping the wheel of an Aston Martin. Debuting in 1964's Goldfinger, the Aston Martin DB5 has played a supporting role in 12 movies over more than 50 years. The text interpretation of Goldfinger had Bond operating a DB Mark III. But Aston Martin had just unleashed the DB5 in 1963, so it was decided to use the company's latest car instead. As a result, sales of the DB5 boosted when Goldfinger made its debut.

Ford Gran Torino

Gran Torino

Ford built the Torino between 1968 and 1976. It was called after the city of Turin, deemed to be the 'Italian Detroit.' In Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood portrays fussy Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski, who has sequestered himself from the outside world. It's Walt's treasured 1972 Ford Gran Torino that operates as a conduit for camaraderie between him and his youthful neighbor, which would bear profound impacts on both their existences.

The Batmobile

Batman franchise

Indeed one of the most prominent automobiles in film history, the Batmobile, has experienced numerous modifications over the decades. Of course, everyone has their favorite, from the Lincoln Futura-based auto of the 1960s to the more contemporary tank-like Tumbler. So while you'll have a tough time picking one up from the dealership, understand that designers built the extended, sleek version in Batman and Batman Returns on the chassis of a Chevrolet Impala. So you can create your own from there.
