Hollywood has produced many notable movies over the years in every genre. Many films and franchises feature some of the most famous cars in Hollywood’s history. These cars and the films will remain in our memories, ranging from thrilling street races to jaw-dropping stunts. These movies are timeless, and the cars featured in them are similar. These movies gave us all great memories. Let’s now reminisce on some of the most beloved cars in this genre.
1970 Dodge Charger – The Fast & Furious Series
We will start with my personal favorite, the Fast and Furious franchise. Vin Diesel and his American muscle car, the 1970 Dodge Charger, made each other more attractive and powerful. This car has a unique personal story that makes it stand out in the film. Diesel was a popular figure among auto enthusiasts with his iconic car and quarter-mile races when the first film in the series was released in 2001. Diesel’s popularity skyrocketed because of this movie. A modified 1970 Charger was featured in Furious 7, which came out 15 years later.
Audi R8 – Iron Man
RDJ can travel in style, especially when he’s playing a multimillionaire superhero. Iron Man may prefer his suit to fly faster, but Tony Stark prefers his Audi R8. Audi’s R8 made its debut in 2008 Iron Man. Tony Stark didn’t give up his expensive toy in any subsequent films. Marvel offered different versions of the R8 to Tony Stark to maintain his talent for theatrics. Audi continued its relationship with Robert Downey Junior by having him unveil the Audi E-Tron GT in 2018.
1969 Ford Mustang – John Wick
No one will question John Wick’s vengeful actions because of his attachment to his dog and cat. All those risks and violence might seem too much for your car. It did provide us with a series of outstanding action films that we will cherish for many years. John Wick was able to retire from his 1960 Mustang, and we enjoyed 3 more thrilling films. The 1969 Mustang was first seen in 2019, John Wick’s first movie. It is powered by a Ford 32-valve, 5.0-liter Coyote-V8 engine. Fun Fact: Ford partnered with an Oklahoma workshop to produce more Mustang models in 2020.
Chevrolet Camaro – Transformers Series
Are you guys still a fan of the loyal and brave Bumblebee in Transformers? We can’t leave him out. Bumblebee appears in many different forms throughout the film series and the animated series. But the most memorable is the Yellow Chevrolet Camaro, which appeared in the first part of the Transformers movie series. Fans loved the smart and charming Camaro. He showed heart and proved to be the most reliable sidekick for the teenage hero of the movie. The Camaro was featured in a few more films, but they received the same popularity and love from the public. Bumblebee was even featured in a movie, but it was a VW Beetle.
Aston Martin DB5 – James Bond Films
It’s a toss-up between James Bond and Tony Stark to determine who is cooler. We’ll skip that and get to 1964 Goldfinger, in which Sean Connery played James Bond. He drove the Aston Martin DB5. It was amazing to see the car send its enemies into a tailspin with smoke screens, machine guns, and oil-slick sprayers. The original DB5 was also featured in The Thunderball (1965), which sold for approximately 4.6 million US Dollars in 2010. Aston Martin built 25 limited edition DB5s to satisfy the demand, partly because of its popularity in Bond movies. Nearly all of the cars in this limited edition were sold before they went on the production line in 2020. The cars were priced at approximately 3.5 million US Dollars per car.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4S – Bad Boys For Life
Martin Lawrence and Will Smith have a stunning car chase scene for Bad Boys For Life 2020. Smith is racing maniacally in his Porsche 911 Carrera 4S while Lawrence tries to keep his life together. This movie is also part of Bad Boys’ third franchise. This scene shows the Carrera 4S breaking speed limits with its 6-cylinder, 420hp engine. The sleek, modern-looking car can reach a top speed exceeding 305 kmph. It can also reach 100 kmph in less than 4 seconds from a stop.
1967 Shelby Mustang GT500- Gone in 60 Seconds
Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicholas Cage is a 2000 heist film. Shelby Mustang GT500, the original Shelby Mustang GT500, was the real star of the film. It was also called “Eleanor” by the film’s makers. It is the most iconic car in Hollywood history. It was powered by a 7.0-liter V8 engine, which can accelerate from 0 to 100 km per hour in 6.5 seconds. Fusion Motor Company makes this model in Los Angeles.
1968 Ford Mustang GT390 Fastback – Bullitt
Steve McQueen made history by filming the thrilling car chase scenes in Bullitt, 1968. He rode a Ford Mustang GT390 Fastback in dark green, powered by a V8 engine. Fans loved this 2-door Mustang for its iconic muscle car body and amazing chase scenes. The crew crashed one Mustang while filming. The second one, which was unharmed, was sold later for 3.4 million US dollars in 2020.
Subaru WRX – Baby Driver
In the 2017 movie Baby Driver, Ansel Elgort drove the Subaru WRX. The modified Subaru WRX used in the movie, which ran on a 2.5-liter H-4 motor, was a modified version. Later, the cars used in filming were sold on eBay. Because of the well-crafted car chase scenes, both the movie and the car gained a large fan base.
1968 Austin Mk I Mini Cooper S- The Italian Job
The Italian Job, a 1969 classic starring Michael Caine, is the last movie on our list. This movie is a crime movie that has a lot of humor. It features Mini Coopers in three colors: red, white, and blue. It involves a memorable chase between cops and the main characters fleeing with the stolen goods. Mini Coopers were a popular model before the movie, and their popularity soared after its release. This film was remade in 2003 with Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg.
