15 of Our Favorite Famous Badass Movie Cars

If there’s one thing I can appreciate from a movie it’s a cool vehicle.   Like any other prop it can serve as a meaningful extension of a character.   In some cases though it can unfortunately be one of the only things that makes you hold on to watching a movie.

I guess either way it’s sort of interesting to see an awesome car regardless of its purpose.  As such, we’ve sought out what we thought were a pretty awesome 15 cars in movies.

Enjoy the pictures after the jump….

*and P.S. the car from Wraith which is in the intro picture

    Not a bad list.

    I’m a little curious as to why you put a picture of what I believe is the car from the movie Wraith at the top but not include it in the list.

    • Nattyb

      Just added a note at the end of the article.

    That Ecto-1 looks like SHIT.

  • YankeeGator91

    Really? What about the Ford Mustang from Bullitt? There’s seems to be a lot of “fluff” cars and less performance stuff.

  • JD Speed

    The Ecto-1 is a replica car photo from a later 60’s era Cadillac. The Ecto-1 is a 1959.

  • What? No Bluesmobile?

  • Yautja

    While KITT was badass, there was never a Knight Rider movie (unless made-for-TV specials/pilot episodes count).

  • intiside

    Morovich’s Porsche in Condorman… also Condorman’s car.

  • JT

    Great list! Im no ford guy-but elanor from gone in 60 seconds was pretty legit!

  • Deke

    No Bullitt = list fail

  • Kristoph

    Eleanor – Gone in 60 Seconds!

  • Matthijs

    The greatest car in a movie is IMHO the Blues Mobile. I love that movie…

    UM knight rider and the “THAT A team van” where not a movie in the movie theaters knight rider did have a 2000 movie so i guess you could use that but i don’t think they used that van in the 2008 A team movie. might be wrong

  • Yautja

    The A-Team van was used (albeit briefly) in the Liam Neeson movie.

  • stanidude

    what? where’s kitt from knight rider?

  • Kartoffel

    The car from The Wraith was dubbed the “Dodge Turbo Interceptor. The only one in existence.” by none other than the warlock himself – Charlie Sheen.

    According to IMDB, it’s the Dodge M4S – it cost $1.5 million – in 1986. It could apparently do 194mph with a 2.2L 4-cylinder.

    Should really go with Famous Cars so cars from TV and Movies are both represented. The list is very incomplete.

  • What about the Ambiguously Gay Duo car?

  • good list. Batman car Tumbler is the closest that matches the car that looks like the one from Wraith? I could be wrong

  • Mike

    Yautja, There was two Nigt Rider movies, and I series. they used a Mustang Cobra for it. and my opinion it should have been the top car on this list.
