Motion pictures are one of the oldest forms of entertainment, and one of the most important aspects of any movie is the cars. Cars often play an important part in the movies we watch. Movies like Gone in 60 Seconds and The Fast and The Furious franchise showcased dozens of interesting classics all crammed into one motion picture.
There’s a reason why movie cars have been such an important part of history. Cars resonate with people in unique ways, and certain aspects of a beautiful car make a movie quite memorable. So we looked at some of the most iconic movie cars in film history. These cars changed the way that we thought about Hollywood and many of these cars are worth boatloads of money today. Remember the most iconic movie cars of all time below.
James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5
The James Bond movies changed the motion picture industry forever. The films showcased a dapper British secret agent who was very fond of expensive, exclusive rides. The Aston Martin has been a pinnacle of the Bond films since the franchise’s early days. The DB5 was one of the original trademark cars that defined what the Aston Martin brand truly embodied. With sculpted lines and a beautiful interior, the DB5 oozed the kind of class that a smooth talker like Bond loved (via 007).
The DB5 was the pinnacle of class because it combined all of the elements of a great sports car into one package. The beautiful styling and the powerful engine propelled the car with authority. An Aston Martin wasn’t a car that you saw every day, so those who knew about the car knew that it was quite rare. The DB5 is still one of the most prominent Aston Martin models ever built.
