This month, people who don’t spend their evenings and weekends in the garage or out enjoying their cars are all focused on basketball. Us car guys, however, as a majority tend to ignore this championship entirely. So, in order for us to have some fun with competitions of our own before show season and racing gets underway, we’ve developed our own bracket just for the lolz. This year, we’re pitting movie hero cars, and one smuggler’s ship famous for it’s Kessel run distance, all against each other to see what famous vehicle is best. Here’s the kicker – you’re going to ultimately decide who wins.
How do you get involved, you ask? We’ll host the Movie Car championship on our social media platforms where you will vote daily for the car of your choice as the bracket progresses. If you’d like to get a look at the bracket as it stands now, here’s what we’re working with:
For the next few days, we’ll place all sixteen cars (and one Millennium Falcon) against each other for you to vote for your favorite. When we’re through them all, the final matchup between the top two cars will reveal who is the most loved movie hero car of all time.
Naturally, we’d like to spice things up a bit, too. For those who want to take things a step farther, we offer you this challenge: fill out our bracket with your picks and post it on your IG feed and tag us. We’ll be looking at brackets to see if anyone was lucky enough to guess winners correctly and will be rewarding those of you who complete and post your brackets with some fun cool prizes.
So, instead of sitting through your coworkers’ boring basketball conversations, take some time to fill out a movie hero car bracket and follow along with our daily voting to see how well you picked winners! Of course, you can also head over to our site and check out our Spring Sale, which is Space Jam-Packed with tons of deals for you to get your pre-season upgrades sorted before shows and track events start picking up in earnest.
Mach 1 or GT500 Elenor.
Pathetic. Everyone knows the undisputed movie car of all time is the original Bullitt Mustang
potentially will switch falcon for bullitt
I’m not sure if I missed it, but did you request suggestions from your customers as I can’t find my favorite movie car on your list.
Perhaps an oversight or if it’s not too late, I suggest you could perhaps replace a space ship with “the last of the V8 interceptors”, Mad Max’s Ford Falcon.
I wanted to but everyone wanted the big monster truck thing from fury road so I vetoed mad max entirely.
So… Millennium Falcon, sure- why not?!? But not the Bullitt Mustang, you know… from Bullitt?! or the Red WRX from Baby Driver, or the Peugeot from the Bourne Ultimatum, or the Red Porsche 924 from Gunpowder Milkshake, or the Murci from Batman Begins (Hell, I bought a Lambo 10 years after that movie, and still have it)?! Yeah, none of those, but the Millennium Falcon- shucks, why not the Milano from Guardians of the Galaxy, at least it had ‘dope-azz’ guns on it?! You said we’d enjoy this- but Im concerned, well, given you’re ‘car guys’ that modify cars, I (among others) would think you would have enjoyed using cars, from movies, that were inspiring- Ecto1; really?! C’mon…
I thought you guys (and possibly gals) were car guys (or persons, if the word “guys” is triggering or something)…
Ok ok – by popular demand we’ll remove the Falcon. But this is all just a subjective list! it’s not exactly a political debate
You missed Steve McQueen’s Mustang (Bullitt), which to me is far more appealing than the ElinorMustang (60 Seconds) because it was a real-world car and its chase scene was actually realistic.
I go with a Porsche911 turbo from Bad boys
Where’s Bullitt’s Mustang?
I’ve got to vote for the Bandit because I bought one right before the movie hit. Had no idea why people were lining up around my car at the grocery store.
Movie car shoot out is missing a few cars in my opinion. A 69 Dodge Charger a 58 Plymouth fury and last but definitely not least a 68 mustang. You know what is said about opinions though. They are like Aholes everyone has one and they all stink.
there were already two mustangs on the list… and I didn’t want to include General Lee for… reasons.
Fail! I do not see Bullit or the Vanishing Point.
They just didn’t make the list, maybe we’ll tweak it
Bond DB5 for the win… cause the Millennium Falcon isn’t a Car…
Bond DB5 for the win… cause the Millennium Falcon isn’t a Car…
But it’ll make .5 past lightspeed
How is the Millenium Falcon on the list, but not that Corvette from “Corvette Summer” starring “Luke Skywalker” Marc Hammil?
Honestly, forgot about that movie. Hamill is a Porsche guy, too if I recall. Didn’t he wreck a 911 before Empire?
How can you have a movie car shootout w/o the Bullitt Mustang?????
We ran out of spaces
Guys Im sorry but I think you forgot one on the most iconic concept/movie cars ever, which became the fantasy poster pinup for every teeny-bopper out there in the 80s. The Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor, from the movie “The Wraith”. 2.2-liter Cosworth inline-four, dual Garrett turbochargers, 440 hp. 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The fastest four-cylinder car in the 80s. Yes Im probably showing my age, and yes I was one of those pimply teeny boppers, but come on man KITT made your list, really?
Ha! It’s a completely subjective list and just for fun. We can run guest submissions against the winner of this list, though?
Sorry guys but this is what you get when you make a car list and share it with car enthusiasts. Now my wife has interjected with her pick…..1961 Ferrari 250 GT “Ferris Buellers Day Off”, 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, “The Love Bug'”, 1958 Plymouth Fury, “Christine” (that’s a scary thought), 1966 Ford Thunderbird, “Thelma and Louise”, and 1949 Buick Roadmaster, “Rain Man” (Now it’s getting personal.. I think it’s more about Tom than the car). You’re going to need a bigger white board. HA HA.
see that was the problem, only 16 spaces. every one of your suggestions was discussed here though lol
Um….the black Countach from Cannonball Run. Greatest opening of any movie ever for car guys and gals. Head over to YouTube and watch it again. 🙂
You guys missed the very best of them all…RONIN !
‘Ronin’, by far the very best…
Well, speaking of Aston Martins, what about the DB2 Tippi Hedren drove in Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Birds? That car was about 10 years old when the film was made in 1963.
Technically there wasn’t a chase scene but the sound of that straight six and the elegance of the car were good enough for me!
the character’s name and fact that everyone loses to birds disqualifies it.
Where is the BMW X5M from Locke or the Audi RS6 from layer cake?
Didn’t make the cut, sorry!
