Click the image above for more classic movie car pics

It's no secret that we're passionate about cars, and we're pretty sure you feel the same way. We're also big fans of the silver screen, especially when a great car or truck is a big part of the plot. The movie mavens over at Rotten Tomatoes feel the same way, and they've compiled a list of the top 50 movie cars in the history of motion pictures.

The list is chock-full of classics from movies like Bullitt and Vanishing Point, but there are also a lot of hidden gems, like Pepe the Little Mule from Romancing the Stone, or the 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe from Mad Max. One omission that we would have like to have added was Gary's red Ferrari Mondial from Weird Science, but while we could argue forever which vehicle should rank where, we'd say this is a pretty darn good list. We've posted Rotten Tomatoes' top five movie cars after the jump and some of the classic movie cars in the gallery below, but it's definitely worth checking out the entire list. RT even added some great honorable mention vehicles, as well. Thanks for the tip, catgirlshyla!

      Lane's Camaro only got #47? WTF!

      That should have been top 10. Such a sweet ride.

      And @Kevin, agreed!

      I am so greatfull that everybody thinks that the DMC D-12 De Lorean From the BttF films is #1!Any car thats so cool it dont need paint, can travel through time AND fly,is gotta be the most awesome Movie car of them all! I figured it would be #1, glad I was right!

      Any list that doesn't have the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters or the Batmobile in the top 5 is immediately disqualified.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Any list that has a pic of the '80 Turbo Trans Am listed as the '77 from the original Smokey and the Bandit film earns a ride on the FAILBOAT as well.
      • 6 Years Ago
      do you people actually read the list? chitty chitty bang bang, Echto-1, the Batmobile, and Bandit are all listed...
      • 6 Years Ago
      In my opinion Dukes of Hazzard charger and smokey and the bandits Trans Am tied for first Hands Down.
      • 6 Years Ago
      What no AE86 from initial D!
      • 6 Years Ago
      As some of you may notice, I have a horse in this race...but I'm just happy to see the Merc Coupe from Cobra make the list. It was the only thing worth remembering about that movie.

      What about the Dodge Challenger from Vanishing Point or the Ford Mustang from Bullit? Two of the most iconic cars ever.

      This is a pretty worthless list, really, obviously not put together by people who actually like cars.

      The Dukes of Hazzard Charger? A terrible movie, the Charger from Bullit would have been a better choice, or the Firebird from Smokey and the Bandit.

      Or the Ferrari 250 GT California in Ferris Beuller's Day Off?

        Nope, don't need to read the full list. If the Dodge Challenger from Vanishing Point and the Ford Mustang from Bullit are not in the top 5, the list is worthless.

        Those two cars are so iconic their manufacturers have made modern day replicas to capture their mystic. Show me ANY OEM replicas of any of the cars in that top 5 list. I didn't think so.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Next thing you know, ckm will be claiming that Batmobile is not iconic because no one mass produced the car.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Bandit?
      • 6 Years Ago
      And the RV from Stripes is completely absent, even from the honorable mention.
      • 6 Years Ago
      What about The Wraith
      • 6 Years Ago
      LandMaster from Damnation Alley...nice call!

      What about the tricked out S8 from "Ronin" and Korben Dallas' Taxi cab from "The Fifth Element"?

      Mad Max's car should be WAY higher on the list....who didn't want a Blower after seeing that movie.
