The Top 10 Movie Cars and Vehicles and Where to Buy Them!

At 10 is Nemo’s Car from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2005)

Looking like ZZTop’s Cadzilla, but with steampunk detailing and a roadster’s fighting stance, Nemo’s car is one hot retro racer, seven metres long and three metres wide. You’ll need to have a movie-size budget to even build one of these Rover V8 behemoths.

At 9 is the Mach 5 from Speed Racer (2008)…

The futuristic-anime world of Speed Racer has created one of the most incredible cars seen in live action cinema—the Mach 5. Able to fight high-tech enemies in a demolition derby, showdown race to the finish line, the Mach 5 is without a doubt, the fastest car put on film. A replica of the Mach 5 was made and sold on eBay at the time of the film’s opening and interested parties can contact the seller to see if they can make another one or if they’ll sell the replica to you.

At 8 is Herbie from the Love Bug (1968)…

As the cute, race-car Beetle, Herbie ran through five popular movies, and this Disney hero is a timeless classic, living on film for the last 40 years. In his most recent Hollywood incarnation, Herbie the Love Bug starred alongside Lindsay Lohan. Herbie is the most senior car on the list. Want your own? Herbie is actually a 1963 Volkswagen Sunroof Sedan with modifications, and is available on eBay, the cost will run you $4300 including sunroof and Herbie paintjob.

At 7 is Bumblebee from Transformers (2007)…

A giant robot disguised as a car, Bumblebee is loyal as a dog and having him by your side guarantees a date with the hottest chick in school, at least that’s how the movie ran. In real life, Bumblebee is a yellow 1974 Camaro, which means he can be had for cheap at $4000 at the online site Camaros and Firebirds.

At 6 is the Aston Martin from Goldfinger (1964)…

Any car that Bond drives is destined to be an immortal sex symbol, even if it doesn’t have the guns, missles, or submarine ability the film cars have. Check out AstonMartin.com for the latest Bond car model.

At 5 is the Interceptor from Mad Max (1979)…

In a post-apocalyptic world, this police car smashes through the bad guys like a rocket-powered bulldozer in one of the sleeper cult hits starring Mel Gibson. The Interceptor is actually a 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe, a car exclusive only to Australia, and has been modified to look like the bonecrushing muscle car it was in the film. The Interceptor was auctioned for close to AUS$ 25,000 to a car collector who restored it and sold it off to a museum in the U.K. There still are Ford Falcons in Australia and you’ll need to get them to a shop to rig up the blower and the huge fuel tanks at the rear of the car to mimic the look of the Interceptor.

At 4 is the DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future (1985)…

The most impressive thing about the DeLorean is that even now, when you watch the film, the car still looks like a futuristic time/flying machine, close to thirty years after it was first made! This car is readily available for sale on eBay at around $19,000.

At 3 is Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters (1984)…

A custom modified 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor, the Ecto-1 is the coolest geek vehicle ever to star in movies. It looks silly, with a ton of gadgets sticking out, but it’s the meanest and toughest ghost-fighting vehicle in the world. Custom made replicas of the movie car are often made, there is a fan page dedicated to Ecto-1 if you’re in the market for it, or just check eBay auctions for updates.

At 2 is Christine from Christine (1983)…

From the nightmare vision of writer Stephen King and director John Carpenter, comes the murderously possessive, devil car. Christine is the relentless killer car that will smash all her rivals for your attention and grind their bones to dust. In real life, a 1958 Plymouth Fury that most owners or collectors won’t part with, you can just buy a cheap scale model of the car on eBay at $50 and up.

At 1st place is the Batmobile from Batman Returns (1992)…

This gothic beauty deserves its own list, but the sexiest Batmobile still is the one in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. Looking steampunk retro-cool, just like the Burton’s film.

Replicas of the movie car are frequently made by custom shops and you might find one on eBay for over a hundred thousand dollars. They’re snapped up quickly so set your browser to alert you for any news of “Batmobiles for sale.”
