- 1963 Aston Martin DB5
Goldfinger’s Aston Martin might just be the most iconic car of all time!
Goldfinger is a 1964 spy movie and the third installment in the James Bond series. Many Aston Martin cars have appeared in Bond movies over the years, but few are as cool and notable as Goldfinger’s Aston Martin DB5.
In fact, the car became so famous that the company announced they would be recreating 25 of Sean Connery’s tricked-out vehicles to commemorate the movie. You can finally grab your own Bond replica car, revolving license plate and all, for the hefty price of $3.5 million.
- Bullitt’s 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390
The 1968 movie Bullitt might just have the coolest high-speed chase scene of all time. In the film, Steve McQueen’s character Lutientn Bullitt chases down a group of nefarious hitmen through the streets of San Francisco. The car involved in this chase was a classic Ford Mustang GT 390.
Many people don’t know that McQueen did much of the driving and the stunts for himself. While the actor expressed his desire to purchase the car after the film, it, unfortunately, was sold at a private auction.
- 1982 DeLorean DMC-12
Back to the Future’s iconic DeLorean certainly needs no introduction. Famously turned into a time machine in the original Back to the Future movie series, the DoLeran instantly became an overnight sensation.
While many of the gadgets featured in the film were added for the movie, those crazy, wing-like doors came standard with the vehicle. The car from the film now sits in the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
- 1999 Peugeot 406
The 1998 film Taxi follows a pizza delivery boy who follows his dream of becoming a taxi driver by transforming his Peugeot 406 with all sorts of race car modifications. The movie was an instant classic and the series went on to produce 4 more films.
The same Peugeot from the Taxi films was recently sold at auction, and, despite its cool movie connection, it sold for considerably less money than was expected. This was likely due to the fact that, due to the modifications made for the film, the car wasn’t street legal!
- 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX
A red WRX used to be pretty unusual until it was made famous by 2017’s Baby Driver. In the film, the main protagonist pulls off a number of cool stunts while being chased by the police. While many car stunts these days are pulled off with CGI, all the stunts in the film were done with real cars.
A lot of impressive work was done to the cars used in the film stunt-worthy. All that work paid off – one of these red pepper-colored cars was sold for almost $70,000 and went out up for auction.
