1961 Ferrari 250GT California Spyder
Why It’s Cool: Do you have to ask? Okay. Well - looks, for one. It's the vehicular equivalent of Angelina Jolie in a red leather catsuit.
Then there’s the fact that only 55 were ever built, and of those, there are very few still remaining.
A mint condition Spyder was bought by DJ Chris Evans for £5.5million last year, which shows the kind of exclusivity we’re dealing with.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Everyone. Every single person currently alive will be humping your leg just to watch it drive past, let alone call shotgun.
1981 DeLoreon DMC-12
Why It’s Cool: This film made the Delorean cool. The massive misstep of a car was already history by the time the movie was made, the company going bankrupt after only several minutes in business.
With Doc Brown on board however, and a little something called the flux capacitor, the Delorean was transformed into the most recognisable screen time machine in history.
All you'd have to do is hit 88mph and you could go anywhere you wanted - in space or in time.
Sounds easy, right? Problem: the Delorean has a top speed of 85mph.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Take your pick. Moving through time in this gloriously hideous past/future-mobile, you could snap up everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Marie Antoinette.
1977 Pontiac Trans Am
Why It’s Cool: There isn’t anyone who wouldn’t love to be Burt Reynolds in this car, in this film. He has an absolute whale of a time barreling the beast around the Southern states while trying to escort a trailer filled with beer across state lines.
Packed with car chases, moustaches and Sally Field, Smokey And The Bandit is a shameless rollercoaster of illegal dealings and close shaves (apart from the moustaches).
The Pontiac is a monster - ridiculously styled with a flaming chicken decal on the bonnet, double wide tires and Burt Reynolds accessory. Who wouldn’t love to sling this around those gaping great American roads?
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Southern Belles who have no concept of a car that can handle corners.
Mirth Mobile (1976 AMC Pacer)
Why It’s Cool: Maybe it’s the flame decal. Maybe it’s the fact it’s quite possibly the worst-looking car ever made. Perhaps it’s because it's dubbed ‘The Mirth Mobile’.
Whatever. There's no doubting the enduring iconic status of the Pacer, Garth’s modest mode of transport in the classic comedy way back from when Mike Myers was funny.
Another case of an underdog scoring more points than an extrovert testosterone machine, we’d happily take charge of The Mirth Mobile as transport to gigs, festivals and diners - especially with that liqorice vendor in the roof.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Rock chicks after an Alice Cooper gig. Obsessive Wayne's World fans (not so likely).
1973 VW Transporter
Why It’s Cool: Everyone has come into contact with one of these campers at some point, and there's good reason for their enduring cool.
In Little Miss Sunshine , the Hoover family use the VW to get to a beauty pageant in Redondo Beach, proving it is the vehicle of choice for the road trip - however dysfunctional the trippers.
Sure, it's unreliable, needs a rolling start and isn’t up to speed with all modern conveniences, but anything that always works the way you expect it to just isn't cool.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Surfer chicks, backpackers, hippies. Seriously - buy one up for that drive around America you've always planned and never be alone.
1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88
Why It’s Cool: Because Sam Raimi is cool. Featuring in almost every movie Raimi has made, the Oldsmobile is such a hunk of junk it’s a wonder it’s still around at all.
Here, we've chosen its most notorious incarnation, as Ash’s motor in the Evil Dead series - because, if we focused on the fact that the old gypsy lady drove it in Drag Me To Hell , the cool factor wouldn't quite work.
Have no doubt though, this is one bad-ass vehicle, and if it's good enough for the coolest killer of Deadites ever immortalised in film, then who are we not to believe it could enhance our erotic lives.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Damsels in distress - ideally, the types you've recently rescued from the slavering undead but any will do.
1973 Ford Falcon
Why It’s Cool: This car is the last of the V8 Interceptors, the tool with which Mad Max cleaned up the highways of a future dystopian Australia.
With his wife and child dead, Max turns judge, jury and executioner, taking to the road in search of the bikers responsible. And he’s gonna make them pay...
A movie which inspired everything from Motley Crue to Duran Duran, and kicked of the career of Mr Mel Gibson, the car is often overlooked. But without the car, there'd be no Mad Max.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Australians. Though a few watery beers would probably work just as well.
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
Why It’s Cool: The car Tarantino idolised and reused in his homage to the car chase, Death Proof .
One of the most beloved car movies of all time, Vanishing Point features anti-hero Kowalski driving from Colorado to San Francisco being chased by highway patrol.
Along the way, he's guided by Supersoul (a blind DJ with a police radio scanner), gay hitchhikers and a naked woman on a motorbike.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Film geeks. Not saying that we’d definitely would or anything, but we’d at least think about it.
1968 Mustang Fastback
Why It’s Cool: When you take a classic car like the Mustang and couple it with one of the coolest actors to ever grace celluloid, you’re already onto something special.
Steve McQueen could drive a lawnmower and it would instantly be the most iconic lawnmower in history.
Add to that one of the most famous car chases on film, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for cool that many have tried, and failed, to equal.
We still can't really remember what happened in the rest of the film but the Mustang bits were insanely cool.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Whoever can catch up. You’ll be having way too much fun driving this thing to stop and contemplate any horizontal-based activities.
Batmobile (1954 Lincoln Futura Concept)
Why It’s Cool: Everyone born since 1960 grew up watching Adam West’s camper-than-a-Graham-Norton-Christmas-Special take on Batman, and as a result, we all wanted that stupendously sweet ride.
Built by famed car fabricator George Barris for the TV series and later used in the movie spin-off, the design was based on a 1954 Lincoln Futura concept, and was notorious on-set for being horrendously unreliable.
By the time the series ended, most of the mechanics and electrics and been rebuilt or replaced, but we’d still have one - as long as the jet booster still worked.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: You could make a killing at Halloween and other fancy-dressy events with anyone dressed up as Catwoman. Just make sure you come dressed as Bale Batman for the retro-modern mash-up touch.
1964 Austin Mini
Why It’s Cool: The Mini is perhaps the most universally respected and singularly iconic product of the British car industry, and even if they’re now Madonna-baiting BMW cast-offs, the original, as ever, is still the best.
The Italian Job is the film that sold a million Minis, leaving everyone wanting a car that could drive under, through and between cities, as opposed to trundling along on roads like all the other cars.
Who hasn’t been climbing an especially long staircase and thought, “Boy, I could really use a mini right about now”? Yup, the mini is the coolest thing to happen to stairs since handrails.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Apart from Madonna, any retro swinging '60s types in mini-dresses. Generally, though, the Mini screams 'Not trying too hard! Sexually confident!', so the Pull Factor is strong.
Herbie (1963 Volkswagon Beetle)
Why It’s Cool: Herbie, aka the ‘Love Bug’, is just so darn adorable it’s impossible not to love.
Okay, so it isn’t the most expensive car, or the best looking, or the flashest...
But what makes Herbie stand out from the crowd is the ‘can do’ attitude, the large helping of boundless optimism and the infallible spirit in the face of adversity.
All that from a car that was co-designed by Adolf Hitler.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Justin Long. No, wait - Lindsay Lohan...
Ecto 1 - 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Limo-Style End-Loader Combination Car (Ambulance Conversion)
Why It’s Cool: One of the most recognisable vehicles in the cinematic motorcade, the Ecto 1 is ultracool because it really isn’t. Look at it. It’s a mess. It doesn’t work and the styling is terrible…
…but nobody cares, because there is simply nothing else like it.
If you roll around in a BMW, people will know that you’re basically a flash git, but roll around in an old converted ambulance? Exclusivity and individuality.
And in pimp circles, exclusivity is key, excess is embraced, and taste is questionable yet never questioned. The Ecto 1 is a pimped out ride.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: The lonely bachelorette you just rescued from that ghost. You know, the one you made up just to talk to her.
1958 Plymouth Fury
Why It’s Cool: Bought by little Arnie to try and gain himself some street cred, it’s easy to see why he chose the gleaming bright red Fury.
Not only does this car look badder than a James Dean smoulder, it’ll have even the most lowly of lone rangers soon unable to see the table for the amount of offers strewn upon it.
Not only is Christine a car to die for, she’s a car that will kill for you. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t want their car to deal out some rough justice during rush-hour road rage.
You know how it is - killing just takes up too much of the day. It'd be sweet to have a car that would take it off your hands.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: The bad girl. Your car just killed her boyfriend, and she needs a replacement.
1955 Chevy 150
Why It’s Cool: This film is all about the cars. A highly tuned and customized Chevy 150 versus a Pontiac GTO. You’re rooting for the Chevy, the underdog - It is the transport for the beat generation, Jack Kerouac incarnate as automobile.
Often overlooked by it’s better known, flashier, 1971 rival Vanishing Point, Two Lane Blacktop is the minimal counterpoint to the brash brawn of Kowalski and Co.
With minimal dialogue, the Chevy 150 does all the talking in this film, and it speaks volumes.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: The beatnik drifter looking to hitch a ride.
1963 Aston Martin DB5
Why It’s Cool: About as iconic as a car can possibly be, Goldfinger 's DB5 was a star in its own right. As instantly recognisable as that Connery fella.
The same way that Bond is the epitome of cool, the DB5 oozes style, sophistication, swagger and, yep, sex.
Of course, most folks associate the car with it’s famed gadgets, but even without the trickery, Bond would have defeated the villain with the power of being overcome with awestruckness at his ride.
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Femme fatales with unlikely names as double entendres. If you ever meet a girl called Pussy/Honey/Christmas you’re in like Bond at a secret volcano hideout.
Bumblebee (2009 Chevrolet Camaro)
Why It’s Cool: Given the most heroic of Hero Shots in the first Transformers , Bumblebee's transformation from battered old Camaro to spanking new concept is almost as lovingly shot as Megan Fox's midriff.
The car itself is cool because, back in 2007, it was just a concept, and you couldn’t actually get one. Also, there's the transforms-into-a-pet-giant-robot thing...
Happily, the brand new Camaro is now in production and Bumblebee has upgraded to the latest model for the sequel, Revenge of the Fallen .
Who’s Most Likely To Sleep With You: Megan Fox. Seriously, go buy one. Yes, yes. She comes with the car.
