Cars in movies have been slowly gaining popularity in recent years, and I think we all know that we can thank the Fast and Furious franchise for that. While they don’t exactly make for the most intellectual movies with the most complex plot, they do manage to keep audiences entertained for their full duration and they break the box office every time. I’m sure the new Hobbs & Shaw spin-off will be no different.
Anyway, as a homage to what this has done to our appreciation of a properly made vehicle, let’s take a look at some of the best supercars that we’ve seen in movies in more recent years.
Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster
We all love a good Lamborghini, and we all love Batman. It’s like it was written in the stars that the Nolanverse’s Bruce Wayne would drive one of these – and no one minded one bit. Also, the fact that Murciélago literally means “bat” is a nice touch.
Aston Martin DB5 V12
If you see “Aston Martin,” you’re probably thinking James Bond – and you’d be right. Casino Royale didn’t just introduce us to a new, more gritty James Bond, it also introduced us to the lovely DB5 that we’d all like to take for a spin. Don’t lie to me.
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
While people don’t exactly watch the Transformers movies to look at amazing supercars, Age of Extinction did have this wonderful Bugatti in it. It’s an expensive car, but it’s easily one of the fastest and most unique looking cars in the world.
Audi R8 Spyder
Audi’s attempt to get into the supercar market didn’t go by unnoticed, and it’ll probably have to do with the fact that from Iron Man 2 on, Tony Stark never drove anything that wasn’t an Audi R8 of some sorts.
Ford Shelby GT500
The Ford Shelby is a legendary car with enough history in itself to fill an entire article, but this particular car was seen in a movie where you don’t even expect to see cars at all: I Am Legend. That’s right: some brilliant scientist is left alone on the planet, fighting off some sort of zombie invasion, and he decides to keep driving a car that uses up gas like it’s nobody’s business.
BMW i8 Concept Spyder
Being a spy requires driving a supercar, and Ethan Hunt is no exception. Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol has Ethan running into all kinds of shenanigans and of course that one tactically placed BMW supercar.
