Cars in movies: Which ones do you remember best?

Research shows the DeLorean is the most memorable; the Alfa in The Graduate didn't do so well

Some movie extras – the car a character drives for instance – are so significant that they come to be synonymous with the film.

 

But which movie cars are the most famous?

 

Click4reg.co.uk quizzed internet users around the world on their knowledge of 38 famous cars, asking them to identify the name and original movie of each. And the results are in!

 

 

Correctly guessed by 87%, the DMC DeLorean takes first place. The Doc’s time machine in Back to the Future has been so influential that it is the most recognisable car globally. The car ceased production in 1982, but regained popularity when the film was released in 1985. One can’t help wondering how the car might have fared had it still been in production when the film came out.

 

The famed Batmobile takes second place – 85% recognised it and its related franchise. And while its appearance has changed over the years, second places proves the car’s cultural impact.
