Cinema has seen hundreds — perhaps thousands — of great cars on the big screen, in roles and movies that make the vehicles arguably as famous as the leading actors and actresses performing alongside them. Pretty much as long as there have been cars, they have been appearing in movies in some capacity — sometimes even taking on leading roles. However, sometimes a standard production car just won’t cut it and the studio will have to create its own design to fit the needs of the movie in question. While films like Bullitt, Gone in 60 Seconds, and Vanishing Point are great and all, things get really crazy when the film studio gets to run wild with its own vehicular notions.
Here are a few cars from movies spanning back a couple of decades, some of which are based on existing cars and some of which were dreamt up from scratch. Regardless, each of the following made the big screen its own. This is by no means a comprehensive list, so add your suggestions in the comments below.
