Revealed: Silver screen's most iconic cars
As Dubai film festival kicks off, we take a look at cinema’s most memorable automobiles
There’s something powerful about cars in movies – The Godfather wouldn’t have been the same without the black Cadillacs and Lincolns. Batman wouldn’t be as convincing without his batmobile. For that reason, we take a trip down memory lane to see some of the most iconic cars in film. Who can forget the 1941 Lincoln where Sonny from The Godfather was shot dead? The 1946 Ford Grease Lightning John Travolta drove in the iconic 70’s movie, Grease. A yellow car seldom looks like a mobster’s, but Al Pacino’s 1963 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible sure did in Scarface. Anyone who’s watched – or even heard of - The Graduate will recognize this 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider. The car that made it through it all – the 1969 Mercedes Benz Cabriolet in The Hangover. Probably one of the best scenes in the movie, Cruel Intentions, features this beauty - the Jaguar XK140 Roadster. We had to include the 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow from Casino. While mobsters’ cars today include the likes of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, it was this pink 1979 Cadillac Coupe that proved fit in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. Speaking of Ferraris, the 550 Maranello in Bad Boys II had to get a spot on our list. The 1969 Dodge Charger in the Dukes of Hazzard remains one of the favourite film cars to date.
