Honorable Mentions

20. Christine
Type of car: 1958 Plymouth Fury
Special features: Self-repairing, evil
Appears in: Christine

When Plymouth introduced the Fury name in 1957, it was essentially a sport and trim package on the Belvedere model. And the red paint and interior were custom orders; those options weren't regularly available on the real cars. But what other color works on a demonic, murderous car - beige? We don't think so.

19. Joel's dad's Porsche
Type of car: 1981 Porsche 928
Special features: Annoys pimps, falls off of piers
Appears in: Risky Business

Joel's parents leave for the weekend, and tell him not to drive his father's Porsche, but he just can't resist. But Porsches aren't meant to be U-boats, and it costs serious money to repair the water damage before Joel's parents get home.

18. The Tumbler
Type of car: Wayne Industries assault vehicle
Special features: Rocket powered, armor plated
Appears in: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight

They never could get the bridge to work, but this baby works just fine, according to Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman). In reality, four street-ready versions were built, and were spied driving at extreme speeds (one was also in an accident) in Chicago before the release of Batman Begins.

The Cannonball Run

17. The Lamborghini
Type of car: 1980 Lamborghini Countach LP 400S
Special features: Scissor doors, spandex jumpsuits
Appears in: The Cannonball Run

If you were a teenage boy in the 80s, you wanted one of these cars. The black Countach that appears in The Cannonball Run is a standout in a movie filled with hot cars, and it doesn't hurt that it's driving by a smoking hot, spandex-wrapped Adrienne Barbeau.

The Spy Who Loved Me

16. James Bond's submersible Lotus
Type of car: 1975 Lotus Esprit
Special features: Oil slick, rocket launcher, submarine mode
Appears in: The Spy Who Loved Me

This is the second-coolest car that James Bond ever drove (we'll get to his best car shortly). It looks good, it handles well, and it's great for a day at the beach. No boat? No problem!
