59 Funny And Tragically Awkward Wedding Photos

For obvious reasons, it’s usually the actors that take top billing in the entertainment business, but some movies have been made iconic and stood the test of time because of the cars in them.

From Steve McQueen’s delightful 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback in Bullitt to James Bond’s famous fleet of Aston Martins, cinema has made these cars even more desirable.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled what we think are the coolest 30 cars in movie history. Enjoy!

1. Corvette Summer

Remember Corvette Summer? It was a 1978 adventure film which starred a young Mark Hamill who had to get this beautiful car across vast stretches of desert. It was quite possibly the most 70s movie of all time!

The Corvette, which takes top billing in the title, is a stolen right-handed drive Stingray that sees Hamill embarking on an epic adventure to retrieve it. An overlooked classic, Corvette Summer is well worth checking out, both for the motor and the hilarious plot twists!

2. Grand Prix

Motorsports is one of the more trickier sporting events for television audiences to enjoy as the cars are going at such speeds you need a variety of lenses and cameras to convey the intensity and speed for those not there. However, today’s cameraman have it easy compared to when John Frankenheimer filmed the classic 1966 movie, “Grand Prix.”

As you can see by the photo above, the techniques used to capture the races was, in many ways, death-defying, leading the acclaimed American director to remark years later, “When I look back, I don’t know how the hell we ever did that film.”

3. Duel

Duel was a made-for-television-movie directed by a then little-known director by the name of Steven Spielberg. The screenplay was penned by the I Am Legend author, Richard Matheson.

The riveting premise sees a salesman and a truck driver chase each other through a desert highway. The driving is of the highest order and culminates in a breathtaking finish that will leave you reeling.

4. Drive

Ryan Gosling’s performance in Drive may have been laconic, but his role as a getaway driver and on-set stunt driver was also one of the coolest and most assured performances of his career.

The Nicolas Winding Refn action drama included a 1973 Chevrolet Malibu and a 2011 Ford Mustang GT. Fun fact: The Chevy Malibu was really a Chevelle with a Malibu trim option.

5. John Wick Chapter 2

Keanna Reeves came back for second picking in John Wick chapter 2 in a bid to once and for all eliminate the various assassins out to get him. Whilst the film is rich in action from the get-go, car enthusiasts no doubt noticed that Mach 1 Mustang.

Other classics included a 1970 SS 454 LS6 Chevelle and a 1968 Dodge Charger. Sweet.

6. Hell or High Water

If you haven’t seen this movie, then go and see it! A relative unknown indie despite starring names such as Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges, this slow burner slowly got critics talking after a relatively muted debuted at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

Like many movies containing cars, the plot consisted mostly of bank robberies and the getaways that ensued. In this movie, the premise involves two brothers robbing their local banks in a bid to save their family ranch. With an array of uber-cool vehicles, from the green Dodge Challenger to 70s sedans and Ford pickup trucks, this is certainly a movie for the ardent car enthusiast.

7. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Now this is a cool car! The 2006 American sports comedy featuring Will Ferrell and Adam McKay featured so many twists and turns you almost wondered if the movie was directed by a car! An ode to the relegated pastime of stock-car driving, the numerous chase scenes in this movie alone make it worth your time.

If you needed any more motivation to see this flick, then you’ll probably like to know that Leslie Bibb, Ricky Bobby’s voluptuous blonde wife, is also in the movie.

8. Tucker: The Man and His Dream

Another Jeff Bridges film is the 1988 American biographical film Tucker: The Man and His Dream. A must-watch movie for motorheads, the story chronicles the life of Preston Tucker and his effort to construct and market the 1948 Tucker Sedan.

However, the car’s journey was riddled with accusations of stock fraud though the film itself was far from fraudulent and has since gone down as a classic in the genre of automotive cinema.

9. Baby Driver

One of the more recent movies to make our list, Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey took this high-tempo thriller to a whole new level in the much-acclaimed 2017 crime drama Baby Driver.

Much like Drive, Baby Driver features a handsome getaway driver working for criminal enterprises. He then finds himself in a daily road race with those eager to bring him down. The Edgar Wright film was a huge fit, bringing in $226.9 million at the box office. For those interested, Elgort’s character drives a Japanese classic, the Subaru WRX.

10. Gran Torino

Clint Eastwood went back to doing what he does best when he starred in the vigilante movie Gran Torino. Named after the titular car, Gran Torino is very much a personification of Middle-American identity and the ever-changing role of masculinity and increasingly lack of respect for our elders.

Just like the car itself, Eastwood’s performance proved that his talent as an actor and filmmaker would never go out of fashion.
