The top 5 cars in Hollywood movies Powered By Docstoc
					Cars are an essential part of movies in Hollywood, and it is not surprising to see
car-related movies coming out quite often. While the plots and action scenes have
changed due to the technological advances both in cars and the movie industry, there
is no denying that a car movie will be a big hit if done right. History has proven this
with several blockbusters such as The Duel, Spielberg’s first hit, American Graffiti,
Bullitt, or even Death Race. There are also other movies that successfully ride over
the success of car movies, but without actually becoming classics. This article takes a
closer look at the top 5 cars found in movies.
  5) The Ford Mustang GT 390 in Bullitt Bullitt’s Ford Mustang GT 390 may need a
strong shout to be considered. It is true that it is completely lacking as far as gadgets
go and cannot boast impressive abilities such as the Batmobile’s auto-destruction
feature or even James Bond’s invisible car, but this GT 390 was among the best of its
kind. That. And the seven-minute or so chase scene involving this Mustang and the
Dodge Charger is still one of the most impressive car scenes ever filmed.
  4) The Pontiac Trans Am in Smokey and the Bandit While there is no denying that
the car makes the man, there arise some cases where the man makes the car. In this
case, the man and his mustache make the car. Indeed, Burt Reynold’s Pontiac Trans
Am in Smokey and the Bandit is one of the most memorable cars in Hollywood
history. Just like the GT 390 in Bullit, this Pontiac is as regular as it gets, but was
involved in one of the most insane missions seen in a movie. And it did have a very
unique feature: a runaway bride through half the movie.
  3) The De Lorean from the Back to the Future trilogy The De Lorean is every little
boy’s dream come true and not simply for its time-travelling abilities. This extremely
stylish car boasts an amazingly slick outline, complete with a flux capacitor and a
plutonium-powered nuclear reactor (since plutonium is a readily available item at the
closest Walmart), and will travel at dizzying speeds that very likely send the driver
into the future. Of course, with a title as mysterious as Back to the Future, it is not
surprising that the car’s been designed to be as mysterious and interesting as possible.
  2) The Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinder Bulletproof glass? Check. People are just
going to be shooting at James Bond anyway. Machine guns? Check. Whoever fires at
James Bond will get fired at. Radar? Check. Satellite navigations are too common for
James Bond. The Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinder pretty much redefined the Bond
car. It’s gorgeous and boasted the most impressive list of Bond gadgets at that time.
And it’s being driven by Sean Connery, so it deserves the nod over competitors.
  1) The Batmobile from The Dark Knight It may look ugly at first, but the design of
The Dark Knight’s Batmobile is one that grows onto viewers the more it is seen
on-screen. Not only that, but this car just oozes style. Its plethora of incredible
gadgets, which includes the whole car being even grenade-proof, is nothing less than
one would expect from Batman. Did I also mention that the car can transform into a
motorbike if it’s too damaged?
