25 best TV and movie cars ever

We've compiled the most iconic motors to grace the screen. Warning: this much cool may actually hurt

Buckle your seatbelts, you're in for one hell of a ride. Here are the 25 best TV and movie cars of all time.

1938 VW Beetle (The Love Bug, 1968)

The loveable anthropomorphic bug has a wacky adventure. And there's no mention of Hitler’s involvement in the design of the VW Beetle anywhere.

1952 Reliant Regal (Only Fools and Horses, 1981-2003)

The most famous three-wheeler on the planet, filled with unsellable tat. And a pair of geezers in Batman and Robin get-up. In reality the Regal is notorious for flipping in corners and giving up on the slightest of hills.

More after the break...

1963 Aston Martin DB5 (Goldfinger, 1964)

Sexy, isn’t it? Yes, James Bond is too but we meant the DB5. Definitive Bond and equally cool. All Astons, until Ford bought the company, were hand-made in one factory near Oxford.

1968 V8 Ford Mustang (Bullitt, 1968)

One of the most famous drifts in any car on screen, Steve McQueen put the V8 through its paces for the nine-minute chase scene, which took three weeks to film. The famous reverse burnout wasn’t planned – Steve McQueen just got carried away and the producers (rightly) decided to keep it in.

1969 Dodge Charger (Dukes of Hazzard, 1979-1985)

Better known as The General Lee, the orange Charger used by the Duke family appears in every episode but one. At least 256 Chargers were used and abused while filming the series.
