Top 5 Classic Cars Used in Movies

Car and movies get along with each other pretty well. As you have known that there are a lot of movies made about cars. Take fast and furious for example. Fast and furious reinvented the era of classic American muscle cars. Similarly, other car movies also brought back dying classic cars back to life. I guess if we try to cover all cars in fast and furious only then it would take some time. So, we will leave that task for another day.

In this article, we will only cover which classic cars are featured in movies. So, let get started without any further ado.

I think there is no one alive that hasn’t watched James Bond movies. And if there is some person who has not watched one James Bond movie then I don’t know what to say except just go and die already. The Bond series always brings back memories of one special car that is the 1964 Aston Martin DB5. The car and Mr. Bond shared many worthy moments during the shoot of this movie. This specific Aston Martin DB5 was customized to cater to the needs of the movie. It has some added features both on the interior and the exterior as well. This priceless classic was auctioned and sold for a whopping $4.6 million. This is by far the best classic car used in movies.

Transformers took the concept of cars and vehicles to another level. The movie used numerous cars and mini-trucks. The cars and trucks never stayed the same in the movie and I am sure that they are never going to be the same for us again as well. 2007 Chevrolet Camaro Replica was used in the Transformers movie. The main actor or should we say the main car bumblebee was introduced in the movie as a 1977 Chevrolet Camaro that belonged to the second generation. Later this car transforms and takes the form of the fifth generation of the iconic Chevrolet Camaro.

Austin Mini has a name to carry when it comes to the manufacturing of classic cars. Many of their cars have been featured in movies from time to time. But the most iconic 1967 Austin Mini Cooper S 1275 was used in the famous movie “The Italian Job”. The movie was a great success thanks to its thrilling and engaging storyline. The Austin Mini Cooper is produced by the British Motor Corporation. Usually, most of the cars you see in movies are donated or lend in some form by the manufacturer as their car getting featured in a movie gives them free publicity. But what very few people know is that the production team of The Italian Job approached BMC and asked them to donate cars. But BMC didn’t spare any cars for this purpose. The movie had to purchase 6 Mini Coopers at the market price.

1963 Volkswagen Beetle Model 117 Deluxe was featured in many parts of the iconic Herbie movies. But the most memorable of all those movies was Herbie: The Love Bug. Volkswagen Beetle had a special vibe attached to itself. How can we possibly forget the curvy dome-shaped roof on this car? This car had bold looks and came in vibrant color schemes. Though the car used in the movie had a sparkling gray color. This color was specially chosen to resonate with the studio’s warm lighting. According to sources, 11 Volkswagen Beetle were specially created for this movie. But only 3 of those cars have survived to date. In case, if you want to take a peek at one of these cars, one restored Beetle is residing at  AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The amazing Dodge Charger from 1969 was used in the famous movie The Dukes of Hazzard. This car was premiered in the movie right from the go. In fact, the movie started from the dodge charger being broken down. If you remember that this car was given faded orange color in the movie and it had a crafty “01” logo on one side. Movie geeks have reported that more than two dozen dodge chargers were used while shooting of this movie. As most of the cars didn’t survive the series of power-packed rolling stunts. This might give a reason to classic car lovers to hate this movie as well, since they destroyed so many of these beauties just for sake of one movie.
