With our latest partnership with a provider of car finance, we thought it would be a good idea to have a look back at iconic cars from film and TV. Cars that you wish you could drive into the future, have a high-speed chase through the streets or even skip school with . Read on for our 9 cars from movies you wish you could drive.
DeLorean – Back to the Future
The sci-fi classic gave us one of the most legendary cars, that made the Delorean receive a massive cult following. With its futuristic looks, flux capacitor and in built time circuits – the DMC-12 could travel to any time in history or future. Obviously these “add-ons” weren’t available in real-life which is possibly why the DeLorean flopped on the market in the 1980s.

Aston Martin DB5 – James Bond Goldfinger
The iconic Aston Martin from 1964’s Goldfinger. Fully equipped with an array of gadgets like machine guns, a revolving front number plate and a bullet-proof shield; it isn’t surprising the car left such a huge impression.
“Ejector seat, you’re joking?”
Batmobile – Batman
With so many different versions of the Batmobile to choose from, we’ve gone way back and selected the 1966 TV Batmobile. Originally based on the 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, it’s metalwork was modified for the TV show.
K.I.T.T – Knight Rider
The setup of this car may have seen ridiculous at the time. It was fitted with computer AI, the ability to drive itself, communicate with the driver – with the way technology is going just now, we may all have something similar in the not too distant future.
1959 Cadillac Ecto-1 Van – Ghostbusters
The vehicle of choice In the 1984 film “Ghostbusters, was the 1959 Cadillac Ecto-1. The Ghostbusters drove around the streets of New York fighting supernatural in this van.
“Everybody can relax, I found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end.”
1961 Ferrari 250 GT California – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Some might say, the best cast member of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off never said a word, had four wheels and met an untimely demise at the bottom of a ravine.
Cameron: “The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, less than 100 were made. My father spent 3 years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion…”
Ferris: “It is his fault he didn’t lock the garage.”
1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 – Bullitt
This Mustang features in arguably the best ever car chase. Steve McQueen drives this beauty through the streets of San Francisco, tailing a 1968 Dodge Charger.
Recently, the original car was found in a Mexican scrapyard.
Eleanor – Gone in 60 Seconds
Yep, another Mustang. But a rarity in its own right, just 300 GT500 Shelby Cobras were ever built. Named Eleanor, as female names were assigned to all the cars in the movie to hide their identities from the police.
“Drycoff: Who’s Eleanor?
Det. Roland Castlebeck: It’s a damn car. And don’t ever talk about my wife.”
