1. Need to hit 88 miles per hour!
The DeLorean DMC-12 most commonly referred to as simple “The DeLorean” is number one on our list being one of the most unique and random cars to hit Hollywood. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro from Houston, Texas. This car was featured in the Back to the Future franchise and sported a V6 twin turbo’d engine and 5 speed manual.
Value: Pick up a stock DeLorean for around $30,000, but expect to pay a pretty penny for one fully setup with a flux capacitor
2. The Name’s Bond
Easily my personal favorite and classiest on this list. The Aston Martin DB5. Making its appearance in many Bond movies including Goldeneye in ’95, Tomorrow Never Dies ’97, Casino Royale ’06, Skyfall ’12, Thunderball ’65, and its first appearance in Goldfinger ’64. This is truly the most bond car you can own.
Value: Probably the most expensive on our list. Expect to pay $400,000 to $600,000 dollars.
3. The General Lee
A southern boys dream car and the car of choice for the Dukes of Hazzard. The car named the General Lee is none other than the 1969 Dodge Charger. If you want to know which one you should buy you will be happy to know the tv show used the 318, 383, and 440 cubic-inch engines and one 511 hemi during the lifetime of the General Lee. If you want the most accurate one then the 383 was the most commonly used and most famous.
Value: These come up for sale often on eBay and run for $40,000+
4. The Batmobile
The batmobile made its debut during Detective Comics #27 in May of 1939. Since it has changed more times than I care to discuss here for you. But in my opinion the most famous bat mobile comes from the Batman Returns film in 1989. Which was built from a very cheap to buy 1985 Chevrolet Impala. This batmobile is now housed in the Petersen Automotive Museum. So if you have some time to spare, 85 impala, and a spare Rolls-Royce jet engine on hand feel go ahead and make your own Batmobile.
Value: Replica’s sell for $142,000, the original was auctioned off for
5. Knight Rider
How doesn’t love a hyper retro tech car driven by David Hasselhoff. Well you didn’t know you wanted a Pontiac Trans Am, but now you do. This sweet futuristic sci-fi car has a build in artificial intelligence system, robotic, and space ship looking steering wheel. This car also lovingly known as KITT is was recently sold last year and finding an 82 trans am isn’t too hard.
Value: cost to build a replica $26,000, the original was auctioned for $300,000.
Before you go looking to buy a used car like the ones mentioned above. Make sure the car is Bluestar inspected. This tells you the current condition of the car and any issues that only a mechanic could know. Don’t take any risks, after all it’s just not worth it.
