You don’t have to be a hot rod fanatic to remember the cutting-edge vehicles featured in Batman, Magnum P.I, Miami Vice,
or The A Team.
Equipped with mass destruction weapons and mind-blowing futuristic technologies, these vehicles made history.
Some have even overshadowed the lead characters, becoming a focal point of attention. Just think about Delorean in Back to the Future, Chrysler Imperial in the Green Hornet, and The Dude’s Gran Torino.
Here are The Greatest Movie And TV Cars Of All Time:
15. The Shaggin’ Wagon
This cute furry car was featured in Shaggin’ Wagon. It had a one-of-a-kind design, with exterior fur lining, a big red tong, a black nose, and custom bodywork. It looked just like a giant sheep dog, which was perfect for Harry and Lloyd.
14. The Dude’s Gran Torino
The 1973 Ford Gran Torino that appeared in The Big Lebowski fits its owner perfectly. By the end of the movie, the car has been crashed, vandalized, stolen, and smashed more than once.
13. The Deathmobile
Best known for its custom bodywork and design, Flounder’s brother’s 1964 Lincoln Continental appeared in National Lampoon’s Animal House. The name “Deathmobile,” the sharp teeth, and the skull painted on front of it made this car memorable.
This 1958 Plymouth Fury appeared in John Carpenter’s horror movie Christine. The story was about a car that changes its owner’s personality for the worse.
11. The Green Hornet’s Car
The TV series featured the Green Hornet’s car, The Black Beauty, a 1966 Imperial Crown sedan customized by Dean Jeffries at a cost of US$13,000.
This car — and Steve McQueen as its driver — pulled off one of the most iconic car chases in movie history.
The Pontiac GTO, also known as the Monkeemobile, appeared in The Monkees (1966). The vehicle has been customized by “mashing” the front end down and stretching” the nose. The manufacturer paid a hefty fee to have its logo left intact.
8.Miami Vice Testarossa
The car was one of two Ferraris used on the show, and it became one of the top poster cars of the decade as viewers watched the famously stubbled Sonny Crocket.
