We count down the 50 most famous cars to drive across the silver screen.
|15. Eleanor II|
Type of car: 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500
Special features: Custom bodywork and paint
Appears in: Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)
Like the Lamborghini in The Cannonball Run, Eleanor stands out in a film full of hot cars. Her appearance has proved so popular that it's contributed to higher pricing of late-60s Mustang fastbacks, and there's now a cottage industry based on creating Eleanor replicas.
|14. Ben's Alfa Romeo|
Type of car: 1966 Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider Duetto
Special features: Attracts older women
Appears in: The Graduate, Wayne's World 2
The success of The Graduate turned the Alfa Romeo Spider into a worldwide icon, and definitely boosted sales of the car. The car's fame and longevity would eventually inspire Alfa Romeo to introduce a "Graduate" edition.
|13. George Barris Batmobile|
Type of car: Customized 1954 Lincoln Futura
Special features: Bat-phone, bat-turbine
Appears in: Batman: The Movie
Already famous as a star of the Batman TV show, the 1960s Batmobile made the jump to the big screen in 1966. This is probably the most iconic George Barris design, and it's based on the Lincoln Futura concept car.
|12. Charlie's getaway Minis|
Type of car: 1968 Austin Mk I Mini Cooper S
Special features: Drives on sidewalks, stairs, roofs as easily as roads
Appears in: The Italian Job (1969)
The Mini was already a popular car in 1969, but The Italian Job is what helped make the car a legend in Europe. That, and a succession of mid-sixties Monte Carlo Rally wins. Although Michael Caine and Noel Coward are the stars of the movie, the Minis really steal the show.
|11. The Bluesmobile|
Type of car: 1974 Dodge Monaco with police package
Special features: Cop motor, cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks, and runs good on regular gas
Appears in: The Blues Brothers
After trading the orginal Bluesmobile (a Cadillac) for a microphone, Elwood picked this gem up at the Mount Prospect city police auction. "They were practically giving them away!"
