Ten Most Badass Movie Cars

Love them or hate them there's always a car you think about when the phrase "badass movie car" is heard, even if you've never seen the movie is from. What makes a movie car badass is up to your own personal perspective, so not everyone will agree with this countdown. Domestic or Import, RWD vs FWD vs AWD, or classic movie cars and antique collectibles are just some of the different flavors in which these badass movie cars come.

Many of these cars seen on TV and involved in some of your favorite movies can be some of the best, but this Ten Most Badass Movie Cars list is not for any car that could possibly exist. From the supercharged to the borderline comical, the only thing these cars share is that there's no way that any of them could ever exist, whether from practicality or the lack of physics.

Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift - 97 Mazda RX-7

Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift - 97 Mazda RX-7

Sporting the magnificent Veilside body kit and front conversion, this FD is piloted by Han throughout the film Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift and is definitely a badass movie car.

There's quite a few memorable scenes with this car, including an iconic slow motion drift scene around two Japanese girls in a Nissan Skyline.

Sporting some old school Racing Hart C5's this FD turned heads no matter where it went until meeting an unfortunate demise in the painful-to-watch crash scene towards the end.

The Fast And The Furious - Tokyo Drift (2006) - Han Circling In His Mazda RX-7

One of the iconic scenes from the 2006 movie 'The Fast and the Furious - Tokyo Drift' where Han drifts around an R33 Skyline.

Die Another Day - 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

Die Another Day - 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

James Bond and his Aston Martin are as iconic and badass as they come, but it wasn't until the movie Die Another Day that took the spy car to the ridiculous extremes.

Not only does the vehicle come with it's own set of snow spikes, but a cloaking device as well making it quite possibly the coolest badass car ever. It's featured in a fast paced chase scene that borders on comedy as Bond is chased by a Jaguar XKR driven by the villain.

Interestingly enough the Aston Martin in the movie went out of their way to ditch the V12 traditionally found in the car, instead opting for a Ford V8. Roger Moore would not approve.

Whilst the standard car came with rear wheel drive and a massive 5.9-litre V12, the Vanquish used for filming was equipped with four wheel drive and a Ford-sourced 300bhp V8 in order to increase traction on the ice.

The Green Hornet: 1965 Chrysler Imperial Crown

The Green Hornet: 1965 Chrysler Imperial Crown

In the same way the Batmobile fought crime, this '65 Imperial Crown charges ahead with aplomb fitting its many powerful yet juvenile weapons.

Providing a nice backdrop to the comical crime fighting duo in The Green Hornet, the most ridiculous part of this car is the Ben Hur style wheel daytons. Yeesh.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future

With bodylines that are recognizable the world around, the Delorean was the time traveling machine powered by the very first flux capacitor. And really who wouldn't want to drive this thing?

Gull wing doors and probably equipped with a good stereo, the Delorean is one badass car whether you are traveling back through time or just taking a cruise. Make sure to keep it under 88 mph however.

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters

Nuclear powered and somehow amazingly cool despite being a painted hearse, this spectral paddy wagon is iconic on many levels. Never leave home without your rolling armory against the ghosts and demons in your city.

Blown shocks and whitewall tires are optional on this badass movie car.

Mad Max - 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT

Mad Max - 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT

Any fan of the post apocalyptic action thriller Mad Max knows all about this '73 Ford Falcon. Modified in almost every manner, it also sports a rear roof spoiler, something that's laughed at in today's modern gear head circles.

Side exit exhaust coupled to a cogged supercharger, this old school Falcon has what it takes on the open road.

Batman Returns - Batmobile

Batman Returns - Batmobile

Striking, awe inspiring and garish all in one, the Batmobile from the movie Batman Returns is in a lot of ways a snapshot of why that movie was a complete bomb.

Outside of the cringe worthy moments in the movie, this turbine powered rocket ship on wheels looks absolutely incredible. How it drives with the long wheelbase and awkward dash cowl is another matter entirely however.

10

The Avengers - Acura NSX Concept - Stark Industries

The Avengers - Acura NSX Concept - Stark Industries

The Stark Industries concept car shown in the blockbuster Marvel movie The Avengers is really the Acura NSX Concept, and it's fitting for the movie.

Combining the gas engine based on the Honda Earth Dream VTEC technology and a mix of electric motors, this NSX concept is the wave of the future for sports cars. Want to see one of the best NSX videos on the Internet check out this same NSX concept boil water.

Batman Begins - The Tumbler

Batman Begins - The Tumbler

Part car part tank the tumbler is definitely not your Dad's Batmobile. It's unique design and bulky appearance make it unmistakable and it's heavily featured by Christopher Nolan in the movie franchise.

Bulletproof and able to split into separate vehicles as well as the motorcycle Batman uses to take down the Joker, the Tumbler is one hell of a badass movie car.
