These movie whips made us want to drive like jerks on the way home from the theater.
Movie: <em>Blade</em> trilogy- Car: 1968 Dodge Charger
Blade's Charger was a lot like the one used in Bullitt for what is regularly referred to as one of the best car chases ever filmed, but its matte black paint job and lack of license plates make it look even meaner than it is. Just clean off a little vampire blood and we'd buy this baby from AutoTrader.com in a second.
Movie: <em>Bad Boys</em>- Car: Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6
Bad Boys II was overstuffed with hot cars, but in the original, it was all about the 911. The body styling is downright legendary; and at the time it was one of the fastest production cars available. Watching it outgun that Cobra toward the end is one of the most cathartic car sequences of all time.
Movie: <em>Transformers</em>- Car: 2009 Camaro Concept
The Camaro's production run came to a sad end in 2002, but reemerged for this year's Transformers flick as a futuristic and damn sexy-looking 2009 concept. Whether the production model will look exactly like the one we saw on the screen is yet to be seen, but we like what we see. Especially the part about it transforming into a huge robot.
Movie: <em>The Punisher</em>- Car: 1969 GTO
While it would've been cool to see the Punisher tearing around in a big black van full of guns, his flat black GTO was a worthy replacement. It didn't quite have as much room for ammo, but with all the muscle under the hood it was a lot better for catching up with the bad guys. Especially chubby, effeminate bad guys like John Travolta.
Movie: <em>Transporter 2</em>- Car: 2005 Audi A8 W12
It doesn't look as sporty as some of the other dream cars on this list, but the 12-cylinder engine sports a dozen cylinders that push this luxury car to speeds a lot of imports just can't reach, no matter how fancy their paint jobs. The interior is just as sweet, which is important during the 99.99 percent of the driving you do that's not a drag race.
Movie: <em>Gone in 60 Seconds</em>- Car: 1967 Shelby GT 500
Whether you prefer the original or the remake—honestly we couldn't care less—of this flick, it's easy to appreciate the sweetness of Lenore. Shelby really knew what he was doing when he put together this American classic; and we still wince every time we see her get all banged up on the way to the check-in.
Movie: <em>The Fast and the Furious</em>- Car: 1994 Toyota Supra
Say what you will about this flick's bad acting and ridiculous story line, but hot ladies and hotter cars made this one of the best summer movies of all time. The graphics on the side of this Supra were a little cheesy, but the body shape made it look fast even when it was sitting still. Or we might have breathed a little too much nitrous oxide.
Movie: <em>National Lampoon's Vacation</em>- Car: 1983 Ford LTD Country Squire, a.k.a. The Family Truckster
"Now, I owe it to myself to tell you, Mr. Griswold, that if you are thinking of taking the tribe cross-country, this is your automobile. The Wagon Queen Family Truckster. You think you hate it now, but wait till you drive it."
Movie: <em>Red Line</em>- Car: 2003 Ferrari Enzo
The Enzo was built on Formula One technology and packs more than 650 horses into a body that's way lighter than it has any business being. It looks and drives like a real race car. And with a price tag that regularly reaches over a million bucks, it damn well better.
Movie: <em>Casino Royale</em>- Car: 2007 Aston Martin DBS V12
This 12-cylinder beast—based on the DB9 race car—might be the sexiest thing ever to come from England. Six hundred horsepowers make it move faster down the highway than a burrito and five beers through your intestines. If that's not enough to make you willing to sell your organs to buy one of only 300 being made, just remember that James "Freakin'" Bond drove it. Want to borrow our scalpel?
