18: Ford Escort MK I
When you hear the Ford Escort name, you automatically think of that cheap compact car from the 1990s that your teacher used to drive. But around the world, the Escort is a much more renowned name that had a fair amount of luck in the rally scene (via Motor Trend).
The Escort MK I is particularly renowned for its excellent performance and driving dynamics. When it comes to excellent engineering, Ford pulled out all the stops for this car, which is why it was featured in the movies.
