    Just been looking online at classics and was wondering what everyone else's favourite classic car is in a movie?

    Mine would be the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond in Goldfinger. Loved this from being a kid watching the old bond movies and still love it today.

    Have a long way to go to be able to afford one.

    Mini in The Italian Job.

    Not a movie but from "The Saint" series starring Roger Moore. He was driving his trusty Volvo P1800. Love that car. I like the ES (estate) version better though.

    The W123 coupe in Primal Fear with Richard Gere. Even though the movie had absolutely nothing to do with cars or chases, the car featured quite prominently. Reason I remember it is because I had one when I first saw the movie, a few years after it came out.

    The Peugeot 406 from Ronin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,730 ✭✭✭ Arthur Daley


    Think it was a 605 that featured most in Ronin. Along with it's cousin the Citroen XM and that Audi S8 doing battle along the Corniche.

    Jackie Chan's Mitsubishi Starion in Cannonball Run is pretty cool

    I must check that out. Another of his films, Arbitrage, he was driving, and totalled, a W116 (it was his mistress's car) and had an S class (or maybe a Maybach), wonder if he is a Merc fan?

    +100!!

    In case you don't follow Iain Tyrrell (and if not, why!) he had the actual car in his workshop. And before you say it's the wrong colour, which I did, I looked into it and found an explanation that the film was shot with a filter. Anyway, enjoy!



    My favs are the the Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 in Le Mans and if I may inclue a TV show, the Fords in The Professionals.

    Preferred the Evo 3 from Thunderbolt, the montage of building it is pretty cool

    There was a 605 but big chase was 406.
