5 best cars from the moviesBack

Everyone has a favourite car they remember from the movies, in fact, some cars have gone on to become national icons. We take a look below at 5 best cars from the movies.

Thelma1966 Ford Thunderbird: Thelma & Louise (1991)

Featured in several high profile films over the years to include The Outsiders directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and Wild at Heart, starring Nicolas Cage, the Ford Thunderbird’s most famous role was as the classic convertible car driven by Louise in the film, Thelma and Louise. The car served as the perfect set of wheels for the girl’s reckless adventure across America, until we finally saw its final moments plunging off a cliff – an iconic ending which helped the film receive 6 Academy Award nominations.

DeloreanDeLorean DMC-12: Back to the Future (1985)

Everyone’s favourite car, or should I say time machine, from the three Back to the Future films of the eighties, the DeLorean DMC-12 gave children (and adults) all over the world the notion that somehow cars in the future could fly! If looks were all that was needed for a car to be totally awesome, it would pass the test with flying colours thanks to its gullwing doors, the fact it looks great even in bare stainless steel and let’s not forget its special features – the famous Flux capacitor, remote control, hover version and Mr.Fusion generator.

Grease1948 Ford De Luxe: Grease (1978)

If you’ve heard of pimp my ride, the Ford De Luxe in the film Grease is pimped up to the max after a ‘greased lightening’ make-over from the T-birds. Danny Zuko played by John Travolta then drives it to victory in a race against the rival gang the Scorpions. There’s also a second version of the Ford De Luxe – the red fantasy version the characters dance on, which also features at the end of the movie. We last see Sandy and Danny drive off into the sunset when the red version develops the capability to fly – don’t you just love the movies!

LotusElise11975 Lotus Espirit: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

The 10th James Bond film to be made, and the third to star Roger Moore, the Spy Who Loved me features the submersible Lotus Espirit. In a chase involving Jaws and other armed personnel, Bond manages to leave his enemies behind and take to the water thanks to his Lotus Espirit from Q Brance that can convert to a submarine! Alongside, the Aston Martin DB5, this is definitely one of the coolest cars Bond ever owned.

Ghostbusters1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor: Ghostbusters (1984)

The ECTO-1 from the film Ghostbusters, starts off its life looking like an old ambulance that’s fit for just one place – the scrap yard, but once Ray has listed all of the improvements it needs – suspension work and shocks, brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, new rings, mufflers, and a little wiring – it looks as good as new! The ECTO-1 becomes the Ghostbusters main method of transport throughout the film with features such as its siren and the fact it offers sliding proton pack storage, just some of the reasons we had to include it in our top five!
