25 best TV and movie cars ever

1981 DeLorean DMC-12 (Back to the Future, 1985)

The flux capacitor-equipped, gull-wing time machine is one of the most iconic cars ever to grace the screen. It’s also one of the worst, and as a result only 9,000 were made. For a good condition original you can expect to pay about £35,000 – over double its original sale value. Flux capacitor not included.

1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Knight Rider, 1982-1986)

Quite possibly the coolest car ever, KITT was able to drive itself, jump, take a beating and talk. Having a car you can call from your watch still hasn’t materialised, though you can buy the glowing red light to stick to the front of your Trans Am. Not recommended unless you already wear very tight jeans and blow-dry your hair.

More after the break...

1976 Lotus Esprit World (The Spy Who Loved Me, 1977)

The Lotus Esprit World made a splash in The Spy Who Loved Me. Quite literally – it converted into a torpedo-firing submarine. The underwater model was actually built, could reach speeds of 15 knots and had no means of stopping.

1988 GMC Vandura (The A-Team, 1983-1987)

Mr T's wagon became an extension of its driver – feared and respected as much as the plane-fearing slugger himself. Now you can even hire a clone of the A-Team van for your more image-conscious mercenary missions.

1966 Ford Futura Batmobile (Batman, 1966-1968)

The original Batmobile was converted with great haste from a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car. Today its estimated worth is US$2 million. With a fully functional gas-turbine jet-propulsion system it might even be worth it, even if it does only give a 15-second burst before running out of fuel.
