There are some films that you may never have seen but you will know the character’s name or some of the storyline
simply because these films are iconic, and there are probably some cars from films that you would instantly recognise too.
When it comes to films, cars play a huge part. Whether it’s the getaway vehicle, a mode of transportation to a different time or part of illegal street racing, famous cars from films have their own memorable status about them.
Movie cars are typically stylish and fast, which is why LeaseCar UK have created a video that looks to see which of these famous cars would win The Great Movie Car Race in a bid to be the first car to reach 60mph. Taking 10 of the most well-known cars from film and pitting them against each other, only one can come out on top!
What iconic movie cars make up The Great Movie Car Race?
- Aston Martin DB5 – James Bond: Goldfinger
- DMC DeLorean – Back to the Future
