1964 Aston Martin DB5
Suave, class, and style are the qualities that have always are synonymous with one of the greatest fictional spies of all time: James Bond. Much of his glamour is indebted to his cool gadgets and awe-striking cars. Among these cars, is the 1964 Aston Martin DB5. This car is so badass that Bond used it in two sequels: Goldfinger and Thunderball. If you examine the car from 1960’s lens, not only is its exterior impressive, but it also paves the way for modern navigation systems. This car defines innovation and style.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
The DMC-12 was created by the reputable Giorgetto Giugiaro, instantly standing out as a stainless-steel stunner with a 130-hp 2.9-liter V-6 engine. However, it was the Back to the Future movie series that gave the DeLorean a household name. Perhaps it was its imaginative and futuristic design or maybe it was its modification as a time machine that elevated this car to unprecedented heights. Although the car didn’t exactly function at the height it was supposed to, it is still considered to be a classic thanks to Marty McFly and Doc.
Back in the 1960s, the Batmobile earned critical acclaim due to its modern design. Afterward, while the Batman franchise went through several filmmakers, the primary vehicle of one of the leading superheroes did not achieve the same applause to consumers—until Christopher Nolan came.
Christopher Nolan not only reformed the struggling Batman series, but his movies also made the Tumbler cool again, as its technical significance and visual aspects drew comparisons with the coolest car designs in pop culture. A 350-CID Chevy V-8 engine forms the foundation of this sturdy Batmobile, allowing it to reach 60mph in less than 5 seconds. With a body composed of 65 carbon-fiber panels and mounted front tires on a separate front 30 inch suspension, it remains a heroic marvel today.
Ectomobile, 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor
It is hard to focus on anything other than the theatrics of Bill Murray & co in the classic Ghostbusters series. However, even in the shadow of the Busters, the alluring flair of the Ectomobile has made a lasting impact on its viewers. The vehicle is designed from the parts of the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor. It is powered by a 6.3-liter V-8 320 HP engine. The 50s sleek style meshed with the technology and pazazz of the GhostBusters blended together to create a vehicle that was renowned and adored.
