DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future: The futuristic look of this car plus the fact that it was a time machine in the movie made this car fantastical and immediately one of the most memorable cars in movie history.

Series 1 Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me: James Bond and classy cars go hand in hand. But what made this car so memorable was the moment it transformed into a submarine when Bond submerged it into the water–with propellers and metal-like fins popping out to help it ride underwater. When Bond drives it back onto land, it transforms back into a car. True movie magic!

1968 Mustang GT 390 from Bullitt: Probably one of the most recognized movie vehicles. So much so, that Ford manufactured a limited edition version of this car–not once–but twice. We’re sure that there were many guys hoping to look as cool as Steve McQueen standing next to this car!
1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: This car is so sweet that even the parking garage attendants couldn’t resist taking it on a joyride! But most importantly, the car becomes a pivotal moment in character Cameron’s life. “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”
Bumblebee from Transformers Series: When folded down into car form, the yellow Camaro with black stripes was the perfect transformation for Bumblebee. It was the perfect marketing tactic for Camaro to re-ignite the brand.
