    What is the most iconic car in movie history?

    So many movie cars, so many memories. What one movie car stands out as the most iconic for you? The classy Gran Torinio from Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino"..the candy-apple murderous beauty "Christine"..the Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile from "The Blues Brothers"..the Batmobile or maybe Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang? Share your viewer's choice!

    James Bond's Aston Martin DB... Or his Lotus Esprit that turned into a mini submarine!

    The black Trans Am on Smokey and the Bandit. The Bandit knew his stuff when it  come to fast chases and get-a-ways. I really enjoyed all three movies, but the first one is my favorite.  Burt Reynolds, Sally Fields, Jerry Reed and Jackie Gleason all made a hit with the characters they played on Smokey and the Bandit. The car kept us glued to the screen.

    Delorean, from Back to the Future.

    Also, I was always a fan of James Bond white Lotus Esprit.

      Thief12, Doc's Delorean! Great car.

      The Back to the Future Delorean is what immediately came to mind when I read the question.

    The Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in "Bullett" and the Pacer in "Wayne's World"

      IDONO, I love that mustang. But you know something? I LOVE the Garthmobile even more! (Yeah, I'm a big Garth & Wayne fan)

    So many choices but if I wanted to throw one or two out there I would say the Ford XB Falcon from The Road Warrior and Cadillac Miller-Meteor, or Ecto-1, from Ghostbusters.

      I was wondering who was going to mention Ecto-1 - my oldest child's favorite film vehicle! smile

      The siren alone is more memorable than most sound effects.

    Apart from the ones listed, I'd also have to say the Batmobile from the two Tim Burton Batman films.

      Those were cool, too!

    I will go with the Trans-Am from Smokey And The Bandit. Not a fan of the old Pontiacs, but Reynolds made that particular car pretty darn cool, and iconic!!

      It really was THE car of the late 70's and considered a babe magnet (and I'm not a fan of Burt Reynolds, lol).

    Tim Burton's Batmobile and the Delorean time machine are the clear choices.

    How about The Love Bug's VW Beetle? I think it's pretty iconic!

      I love the VW Beetles, too. My dad used to have several.

    For me it has to be the Aston Martin DB5 007 drove in Goldfinger and which I think had a brief come back in Casino Royale. A classic - elegant, sexy but deadly, built at a time when Britain was crazy with Beatlemania. This car established Bond as the ultimate movie spy, no matter which actor incarnates.

      chef-de-jour, agreed.

      All of Bonds Aston's have been classics in my opinion. Very strongly agree!

    In my opinion, the Bat Mobile is the most iconic movie car. It is massive, like a mini-truck and of unmatched strength and power. It has also inspired the grand Lamborghini Car - The Sesto Elemento. Only 20 of them have been made.

    The Plymouth Fury from Stephen Kings Christine, or Hemicuda from Phantasm.

    Charger from Dukes Of Hazzard or Kit from Night Rider, I liked both smile

    The first one that popped into my head was the Delorean from "Back to the Future". Then next one that came to mind was Eleanor from "Gone in 60 Seconds". smile

    The Mini Cooper driven by Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), in the movie - The Bourne Identity. One of the best car chase scenes as well. That's my pick.

    The 1959 Plymouth Fury in Christine.  I always wanted one of those.  (A Plymouth, not a Christine.)
