The Most Awesome Movie Cars Of All Time
Movie cars are some of the coolest and most tricked out automobiles. Their unique exteriors and outstanding engine capabilities give these vehicles so much star power that the’re essentially a stand-alone character within the film.
Iconic cars from films are inspirational figures for car lovers and car companies alike. Here’s a list of the most badass movie cars of all time and what makes them awesome:
1970 Dodge Charger | The Fast and The Furious
The 1970 Dodge Charger makes an unforgettable appearance in the iconic film series of The Fast and the Furious. This car boasts more than just Vin Diesel as its most significant feature: it also has a huge engine and supercharger emerging out of the vehicle’s hood.
This look is achievable for your own automobile, but requires ample design consultations with your mechanic. Some easy-to-integrate features of the car are its giant rear tires, so make sure to install some over-sized rear wheels for that street savvy, race-ready look.
1974 XB Ford Falcon Coupe| Mad Max
This iconic muscle car was tricked out for Mad Max: Fury Road, with parts like a built-in 300 horsepower, 351-cylinder V8 engine and rear axle hanging on leaf springs in the back. The sleekness of the design, mixed with its dystopian industrial look, makes the Falcon Coupe a formidable street car.
Some additional body features include a fiberglass nose, roof wing, fender flares and a decklid spoiler. For a real, Mad Max-like effect, you could add a fake blower, miscellaneous lights and side exhausts. Finish off your Mad Max-inspired car with high-performance tires, like those from Falken.
High-performance tires will improve your driving experience and allow you to make movie-worthy driving maneuvers. MadMaxCars.com has all the gadgets and accessories you need to transform your vehicle to the Falcon Coupe.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12 | Back to the Future
The DeLorean is a legendary car and one of the most recognizable in the world. The movie’s version of the car isn’t as flashy as other movie cars, as it has a more utilitarian, futuristic look. The main features of this car include butterfly doors, a stainless steel exterior and a 130-horsepower e.9 liter V6 engine. If you’re interested in restoring or finding this retro automobile, the DeLorean Motor Co., provides accessories and parts and can upgrade your vehicle similar to the DeLorean DMC-12.
1964 Aston Martin DB5 | Goldfinger
The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 will forever be known as a Bond car. It was the original tricked out car for the international super spy, driven in both Goldfinger and Thunderball. This car can stand alone without any extra features due to its classic beauty. However, there are many tricks that amp up its star power, including
- Ram bumpers
- Machine guns
- Revolving number plates
- Tire slashers
- Ejector seats
- Smoke screens
- Rear bullet-proof screens
- Oil-slick sprayers
Now, while most of these features aren’t realistic to put on your car, you can alter some of the interior to reflect the Aston Martin made famous in Goldfinger. Some interior gadgets and accessories you could include in your vehicle include armrest controls and a GPS dashboard.
1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder | Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder is a teenager’s dream, hence its feature in the teen comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The actual car itself will cost you a pretty penny.
However, if you have a convertible, you can make some cosmetic changes that evoke those reckless and whimsical Bueller vibes. Some detailed features of this car include its convertible roof, silky red paint, vintage wire rims, leather steering wheel, artfully placed side gills and round headlights.
