Iconic cars that made iconic movies

It was said that around 300 cars were built for ‘The Fate of the Furious’, not including those that were made and finished in other countries. And some cars are as important as the lead actors.


In this case, one of it would be the black 1970 Dodge Charger that belongs to Dom’s deceased father. And in the eighth edition of the movie, the car was highly modified to drive on ice.



There are many movies in the past that we keep revisiting (on occasions) just for the cars. The cars made the movies iconic. And here we have a list of iconic cars that would take you back to your childhood memories.


Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a British musical adventure fantasy film. The car fits the movie. It displayed one of the widest ranges of undefined, magically functional, devices of any cars in any movie.


Herbie from The Love Bug (1968)
The movie probably came out before most of us were born. And the 1963 Model 117 Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle) remains a legend, appearing in four more movies after that!


The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo (1969)
The Mystery Machine was first introduced while it was just a cartoon car in 1969. In the live action movie, the Mystery Machine was a Ford Econoline.


Ectomobile-1 from Ghostbusters (1984)
Transporting souls back to the netherworld with an old 1959 Cadillac and become famous? Why not? We get to save the world too.


Doc Brown’s De Lorean from Back to the Future (1985)
If you are going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style? Thanks to Doc Brown and Marty McFly, the failed supercar is now the world’s famous time machine. Too bad the past is where this failed ride stayed.


Mutt Cutts from Dumb and Dumber (1994)
When a Greyhound bus comes to mind, it is none other than the Mutt Cutts. Before it was the Mutt Cutts, it was a 1984 Ford Econoline van. Custom bodywork and exterior fur lining – such an interesting touch, no?


Burger Mobile from Good Burger (1997)
The movie is about fast food humour. Inevitably, you will need an AMC Pacer that looks exactly like, well… A good burger!


Gadgetmobile from Inspector Gadget (1999)
The Gadgetmobile has an endless supply of gadgets. Ask anyone and they will say that now would be the best time to have a Gadgetmobile. All problems will be solved just like that.


Tumbler Batmobile from the Dark Knight Trilogy (2005)
Now, this is badass! Rocket-powered… Armour plated. Everyone wants a Batmobile! And one that can turn into a Batpod motorcycle when one needs to shed a bit weight.


Bumblebee from the Transformers franchise (2010)
A car with a robot mode? A 1977/2009 Chevrolet Camaro? It is a dream come true. And thanks to the franchise, people now refer to any yellow and black Camaro as Bumblebee.
