Don't even mention it Rohan! I'm glad you liked it! It's a lovely movie with a fantastic chase sequence involving the Mustang and the Charger (If I'm not wrong, actually I don't quite remember! )

And I loved the inclusion of the amazing Porsche 356 Speedster towards the end!

My favourite car movie is quite aptly, 'Cars'. The movie not only made the car-nut within me happy, but also elated the cinema-lover in me.

The combination of a fantastic story, plus the gradual degradation of an iconic route, some thrilling action and typical slapstick humour. I remember actually crying while watching this movie.

What fascinated me most about this movie were the parallels drawn between our environment and our vehicles eg: Tractor-tipping vis-a-vis cow-tipping.

This film is filled with nuggets of such brilliance. The magic of route 66 to boot. This is not only my favourite car movie, but its my favourite animated movie as well.

Has anyone seen this movie "THE CAR" from 1977. Had seen it as a kid. It was about a black killer car which went around killing people. The car used was a modded Lincoln Continental. I happened to find a DVD after all these years at a Planet M sale and picked it up.

Did anyone mention Ronin? Robert de Niro chasing the beemer in the beautiful Peugeot 406 is one of the most authentic car chase sequences I have seen till date. Probably I'm a bit biased on the 406, probably some people scoff at the idea of a Peugeot chasing a BMW, but it's a very capable car indeed. I was mighty impressed with one (a cab) that I had flagged down in UK once. The ride was plush, and the way it was accelerating (and the cabbie was not driving rash) was akin to a flight about to take off.

Plenty of good car movies. Its hard to say which is the best given the criteria. I will probably vote for Dukes of Hazzard and Gone in 60 Seconds. Also there is this movie called 'Driven' which is the closest movie based on F1 ever.

my personal fav is the "Gran Turismo", awesome pairing of man and the machine. Clint Eastwood and his prized Gran Turismo.
This aprt from all the other movies honorably mentioned numerous times in the post.

The movie is not so much about revving than the bond between them. And am a sucker for Eastwood's movies
