Hyundai is about to debut a few new models in the upcoming superhero movie Ant-Man and The Wasp. To celebrate Hyundai UK commissioned a study to find out which are the most popular movie cars of all time.
Bond, James Bond
According to the 2 000 adults surveyed James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 is the greatest movie car of all-time. The iconic Aston was first seen in 1964’s Goldfinger and has appeared in seven Bond movies to date, most recently in 2015’s Spectre.
Who can forget the array of baddie-fighting gadgets that includes a bullet-proof rear windscreen, machine guns, tyre slashers, oil jets in the rear bumper and an ejector seat.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang finished second ahead of Doc Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean from the Back to the Future Trilogy in third spot. The world’s most famous Beetle, Herbie, the star of five movies so far, came fourth and the Batmobile from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight was just behind.
James Bond’s submarine Lotus Esprit S1 from the 1977 flick The Spy Who Loved Me placed sixth ahead of Danny Zuko’s Greased Lightning from 1978’s Grease in seventh. Charlie’s getaway Minis from 1969’s The Italian Job secured eighth spot, while the Ford Mustang GT Fastback from Steve McQueen’s Bullitt came ninth.
Carried out through OnePoll.com, the research also identified the greatest car chases of all time. First on the list was the sequence from The Italian Job, which we highly recommend viewing as it is far superior to the remake. Second place went to the chase in Bullitt and third spot went to the scene from 1971’s The French Connection.
