The 5 Sexiest Cars to Ever Hit the Silver Screen

When a group of skateboarding teenagers were amazed at Bruce Nolan’s brand new Saleen S7 in “Bruce Almighty”, he simply replied, “It gets me from A to B.” More than making a character look interesting and adding to his/her depth in the movie, automobiles have always been about transporting characters from one destination to another.

Of course, in the movies, the characters have got to have the coolest-looking cars (created by fastidious metal stamping) to distinguish them from the rest of the people on the road. Without further ado, here are the five sexiest cars to ever hit the silver screen:

Saleen S7

5) Saleen S7 (Bruce Almighty; 2003)

From a sloppy, beat up jalopy to a lean, mean street machine, this baby turned heads in the Jim Carrey comedy Bruce Almighty ten years ago! Perhaps its most memorable scene remains the street scene where Bruce parts a sea of cars, exclaims “Hi, ho, Silver, away!” as only the comedian could, and dashes off with the engine roaring, and wheels blazing, with speed.

Aston Martin Vanquish

4) Aston Martin Vanquish (Die Another Day; 2002)

James Bond’s cinematic automobiles have always been a double-edged sword: One part hi-tech, the other part gosh-darn-attractive. The Aston Martin Vanquish in Die Another Day is another exemplary model of this cinematic tradition. Aside from being a piece of automotive eye-candy, the vehicle boasted grill rockets, hood-placed shotgun turrets that turned a thick manual into mere confetti, and a camera-powered cloaking device that took pictures of the surrounding environment for its stealth feature.

 Batmobile (1989)

3) The Batmobile (Batman; 1989)

The first on-screen iteration of The Batmobile drove fans absolutely crazy. This long, stunningly gorgeous black beauty was the muscle car the Dark Knight needed to get around Gotham City. A few features included a jet-powered turbine and an armor mode that boosted protection to its already bulletproof exterior.

Lightning McQueen

2) Nascar Stock Racer (Cars; 2006)

We said earlier that a car not only made a movie character look good, but also provided him/her with a means of transportation. But what if the character WAS a car? That’s what you get with Lightning McQueen, one of the fastest, smooth-talking automobiles seen on any movie screen. When designing the character, Pixar’s John Lasseter said in an L.A. Times article that McQueen was a cross between a “stock car and a more curvaceous Le Mans endurance racer…with some Lola and some [Ford] GT40.”

Apollo GT

1) Apollo GT (The Love Bug: 1968)

Peter Thorndyke’s stunning Apollo GT in Disney’s “The Love Bug” had bumps and curves in all the right places. The bumblebee yellow and black color scheme makes this car all the more irresistible to the naked eye.
