Top 10 Movie and TV Cars
In movies and television, the cars that heroes and villains drive are more than justeye candy. They define not only the time and place in which these characters exist,but also represent their personalities, capabilities and aspirations. These vehicles candeeply enhance the stories being told, and the best among them can themselvesbecome icons of the stories.Accordingly, here are the ten greatest cars of all-time from movies and TV:
 1. Back to the Future - The DeLorean Time Machine
It may be extremely cool to put a handsome man with a tuxedo into a Lotus Esprit,
but it’s also pretty easy. The same can hardly be said for making an iconic vehicle out
of a 1985 DMC DeLorean, a sports car that was basically the go-kart version of theLamborghini Diablo.Nevertheless, with a few choice upgrades

a flux capacitor and a killer digitaldashboard

the
DeLorean Time Machine
stole our hearts with its unique ability totravel back to simpler and brighter times; or at least until your mom hits on you.
 
2. The Dukes of Hazzard - General Lee
While most notorious cars are remembered for their features, the
General Lee
isnotable for its glaring omission: doors that open.And while Bo and Luke jumping in and out of its windows made for an apt symbol of their carefree and rebel spirit, the greatest jumping of all belonged to the Generalitself. Producers of the Dukes of Hazzard estimate that 32 different cars had to playthe
role of the General Lee, mostly because of the ‘stunts’ it had to perform.
 
3. Batman - The Batmobile
Though it might be hip to give a shout-out to the Batmobile from the original TV
series, it would also be insincere; that car wasn’t hardcore. It ha
d fancy red trim andgoofy bubbles instead of windows. Batman and Robin looked like they were on
The Jetsons
in that thing.The Batmobile of the present-day films, however, is much more appealing. With all-black paint, dangerous curves and seating strictly for one angst-ridden soul, the
 
Batmobile of today is much more in keeping with the persona of its dark and torturedpassenger.
4. No. 8 Ecto-1
 –
Ghostbusters
What better way to confront the undead than in a car designed to transport theregularly dead? With spinning lights and a piercing alarm, the classic Ecto-1 hearsefrom Ghostbusters (actually a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor) was the ultimate vehicleto accompany the emergency capture of ghosts, demons, and gigantic men made outof marshmallow.
5. KITT - Knight Rider
If you talk to your car, it probably isn’t because it’s awesome. More likely it’s that itrefuses to start, doesn’t warm up in the morning, or is rolling down a hill without you
inside it.
