The Sexiest Classical Cars In Movie History

The Fast and Furious series and similar movies made the top with big thanks to all the flashy, super tuned cars. Tales of rides and their trusted steeds, however, don't just pop in movie history from the late 90's. Classical cars might not have electric windows and board computers, but they glorified quite some many movies and action stars in the past century with both stunning design and a powerful engine.

1958 Plymouth Fury Movie: Christine

In 1983, Christine was brought to the big screen, adapted from Stephen King's novel from the same year. Christine is a bright red Plymouth Fury, somehow possessed and on a destructive path. Her latest owner is Arnie, a nerdy kid with only one friend. Slowly his fascination with Christine changes him, which inevitability brings trouble on his front door. The car later comes to life and takes revenge on his enemies. This is not a movie review, so enough with the story telling. However, the Plymouth Fury completely fits it's character with both it's name and it's vision - both furious and stunningly beautiful - as if made for it.

1977 Pontiac Trans Am Movie: Smokey and The Bandit

There's a bandit, naturally chased by a stubborn sheriff - there is no need for stories and movie plots. There is one for gorgeous and most of all fast cars. Which is exactly what the 1977 Pontiac Trans Am is. Sexy and fast, this fantastic car brought us amazing car chases, with hilarious endings for two whole movies.

1972 Grand Torino Movie: Grand Torino

What should you never do to a war veteran, survived under the rain of bullets, grenades and explosives in the Vietnam war ? Mess with him and his prize possession - a fantastic 1972 Grand Torino. As sexy as they come, the car sure adds a sweat flavour to the movie. And we'd expect nothing less from Clint Eastwood either.

1976 Grand Torino Series: Starsky and Hutch

This car again ? Yes, THIS car, again. It doesn't matter how many times we show it to you, there will always be a place for Starsky's Stripped Tomato. The car is as big a part of the movie as any of the duo is.

Aston Marting DB5 Movie: Goldfinger

Americans, however, are not the only guys with good cars. The crown's prime jewel - the Aston Martin - is the most lethal weapon 007 has in his arsenal of gadgets and tools. Starring in each of the movies, the most English car has well earned it's place in this collection. Gorgeous, fast, terror to the villains and a magnet for the ladies, is there anything more to ask for of a car?

1986 Ferrari Testarossa Series: Miami Vice

Here we have two gorgeous Ferraris, sharing the glory. Two because it's impossible to pick between, as both deserve the medal. Miami the city of beautiful cars, estates and women. Naturally, the police won't have it any other way but to tap into the luxury that surrounds them. Miami Vice centres around the duo of detectives Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs in their fight against crime. The two Ferraris have a lot of star moments in fantastic car chases and stunts.

Ferrary 308 GT Series: Magnum P.I.

The fabulous stache of Tom Selleck deserves a fabulous car. Probably not the biggest reason, but private investigator Thomas Magnum would no be the same without either of those prize possessions. The car is certainly a key piece for any crime fighting lad out there and Ferrary 308 GT is definitely the perfect choice for this one.

1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Movie: Thelma and Louise

Thelma and Louise - two women gone through unfortunate mischief on the run for freedom in their 1966 Thunderbird. They end their path in a dignifying flight from the edge of the Grand Canyon. Just as a Thunderbird both are unwilling to succumb to faulty imprisonment and choose death before losing their freedom. The movie deserves nothing but the best and the car delivers, while it fits the metaphor completely.

1970 Charger R/T Movie: The Fast and The Furious

Making appearance in half of the movies in the series, the 1970's Charger R/T is a mean machine. It's build by Dom (Vin Diesel) and his father way back when he is still young. Dom's dad dies driving it in a racing accident, which causes his to fear it and never sit behind the wheel. And with a horse power of 900, I can't see any reason not to. Eventually as the movie progresses he gets it together and performs a fantastic drag race with Brian (Paul Walker), but totals the car completely at the finishing moments. The script writer must be pretty cold-hearted to wreck this fine piece of art.

1968 Ford Mustang 390 CID Fastback Movie: Bullitt

Bullitt is a movie about an inglorious San Francisco policeman on his quest to bring down a criminal kingpin. And as any cowboy, what a better ride than one of the most emblematic cars of 20 century America - the mustang. Bullitt takes his trusty steed into a thrilling fast pace car chase on the ups and downs of the city.

Eleanor Movie: Gone In Sixty Seconds

We started this list with a stunning sweetheart and it's only appropriate to finish it with one. 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 alone is an eye candy. But put it into the hands of Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie for a fast pace, high thrilling action and the car really shines. The story is simple - steal 50 cars in 72 hours, or your brother dies. This is the task or retired car thief Randall Reins. In this movie there are quite some luxurious and eye catching cars, but nothing compares with the crown jewel - 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500. Eleanor is a lady even I'm interested into.
