Famous cars from famous movies:
1. Dodge Charger – Fast and Furious 7
Dominic Toretto, who is one of the central characters of the Fast and Furious series and who is known by the nickname Dom, drives a classic Dodge Charger in several Fast and Furious films. Including the first film in the series The Fast and the Furious.
In Fast and Furious 7, Dom gets a chance to drive a special 1970 off-road Dodge Charger, which Dom selects when Mr. Nobody allows Dom to pick any car in his garage. Dom’s friend Tej Parker then customizes the Charger to be heavier and more powerful than a stock standard off-road 1970 Dodge Charger.
Later in the film, Dom uses his newly acquired Dodge Charger to reverse out of a plane hangar, before deploying his parachute. In one of the film’s most iconic scenes.
Dom’s Dodge Charger worked so well in Fast and Furious 7 as Dom has been driving a classic Dodge Charger since he first appeared in The Fast and the Furious in 2001.
2. The Jurassic Jeep – Jurassic Park
In the original Jurassic Park film, multiple Jeep Wrangler YJ Sahara vehicles were used to transport Jurassic Park’s guests around the park. The reason why Jeeps were used in Jurassic Park, is that Jurassic Park was filmed on Kuloa Ranch in Hawaii and Jeeps could easily navigate the ranch’s rugged island terrain.
3. The DeLorean – Back to The Future 1, 2 and 3
The DeLorean is one of the most famous cars used in a movie series and was modified by Marty’s inventor friend Dr. Emmett Brown, in order to serve as a time machine. In all three films, Marty and Dr. Brown use their highly modified DeLorean in order to time travel into the near past as well as the Wild Wild West and the future.
One of the reasons why the DeLorean was such an iconic car, is that when Back to The Future was released, the DeLorean was reasonably priced and was not a highly sought after car. However, due to the success of Back to the Future, Back to The Future Fans soon popularised the DeLorean.
4. The Ford Anglia – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The Ford Anglia, which appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, was a 1966 Ford Anglia Deluxe 105E. In the film, Harry Potter and his friend Ron, enchant a Ford Anglia to get to Hogwarts on time after they miss the Hogwarts Express. In an iconic scene from both the book and the film, Harry and Ron accidentally crash their Ford Anglia into the Whomping Willow.
The reason why a blue Anglia appeared in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is that JK Rowling the author of the Harry Potter series specified that the car in Chamber of Secrets was a Ford Anglia and the directors of the film, wanted to stay as true to the book as possible.
In order to see all four iconic cars in action, it’s well worth rewatching all four of the movies listed above.
