Default Which movie car would you drive?

Which movie car would you love to drive? Does not have to be a car specifically, could be any drive-able vehicle.

My two favourites would be:

The Tumbler from The Dark Knight Rises and Han's RX7 from Tokyo Drift.

RX7 : 306bhp @ 6650 RPM and 256 lb-ft @ 5950 RPM

Interesting thread. Live out a fantasy.
For me, the cobra merc. I recall Stallone hitting a "Turbo" button in the middle of the dash, like it was in my Zen!

Han's RX7 remains one of my favorite too.
The dish on the alloys is Oh God, too delicious.

Vin's Charger in the 5, would also be in my list.

CHEERS!!

What are your thoughts on the GT 500 "Eleanor" ? I would love to have that car!

Oh yes! And the rear end with the sleek lights and vents. I personally think it still looks better than most modern day sports cars.

The falcon is on my list as well! Fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. Yeah, the warpdrive generator can be a hard thing to fix. Especially finding those rare hyperdrive motivators

Marvelous car that! - Suits Sly too, tho' I thought it was a Hudson rather than a Mercury.

What I wouldn't give for that Alfa Montreal from The Marseilles Contract!

I didnt even know what car it was till I saw Extreme hoarders. Rick, on that show, he is a specialist on chopped mercs.Thats when I went, "Thats what Cobra drove...."
Rick Dore also did this for hetfield, which, though not a movie car, looks better than an A list star! The Black Pearl

The Black Pearl! - that's another knockout! I was confused with the Cobra car because I remember two cars from my childhood in Allahabad - a white Packard Clipper and a sea-green Hudson. It had that hump-back whale profile which just stuck in your memory! You're right of course, it was a Mercury in the Cobra. And I'm a attaching a photo of the Hudson to show the similarity!

1. The Red Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift

2. 'Eleanor' Mustang GT500 from Gone in 60 Seconds
