Most movies have cars in them. But in our favorite movies, the cars are just as important as the people. Here are some of the most iconic movie vehicles of all time.

1 of 19
Audi S8 (Ronin)

As far as car chases go, Ronin's is among the greatest. It involves an entire collection of cars we could mention, but none was more prominent carving through the tight streets of Paris than the Audi S8.

2 of 19
Mini Cooper (The Italian Job)

We could've shown you the 2003 remake of The Italian Job, which also featured then-new modern Mini Coopers, but honestly, the original 1969 film is way cooler. The original Mini could squeeze into gaps where the new one wouldn't stand a chance, making for a truly zany chase scene.

3 of 19
Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 (Bad Boys)

It's hard to pick a favorite between the two Bad Boys movies and their cars. Both had plenty of explosions and chases. The 964 Turbo featured in the first movie sure is nice to look at, though.

4 of 19
Subaru Impreza WRX (Baby Driver)

Baby Driver may be a recent movie, but there's no doubt people will recognize the car. A Subaru WRX painted in red with black wheels was the star of the awesome opening scene, and featured heavily in advertising leading up to the movie's release.

5 of 19
Aston Martin DB5 (Goldfinger)

James Bond's cars become famous the moment they appear on screen, but none has garnered more attention than the machine-gun-equipped Aston Martin DB5 that first debuted in Goldfinger. The original movie car sold at auction in 2010 for a staggering $4.6 million.

6 of 19
Ecto-1 (Ghostbusters)

Whenever you hear the Ghostbusters theme song, the image of this exact car doubtless comes to mind. The converted 1959 Cadillac ambulance is iconic.

7 of 19
Ferrari 550 Maranello (Bad Boys II)

Not only is this chase scene from Bad Boys II one of the greatest of all time, it also features one of the greatest front-engined Ferraris ever—a 550 Maranello.

8 of 19
Tumbler (The Dark Knight)

Batman's Tumbler might not be a normal "car," but it does have four wheels and drives on the street. The rocket thruster is a nice touch.

9 of 19
Eleanor (Gone in 60 Seconds)

Nic Cage and Angelina Jolie may have made Eleanor famous for a new generation of Mustang fans, but you don't get the remake without the original. And the original was a yellow 1971 Mustang, updated to look like a '73.

10 of 19
Lotus Esprit (The Spy Who Loved Me)

It's usually a bad idea to drive your car into the ocean. But not if you're James Bond in a submarine Esprit. To this day, it's still one of the coolest things a movie car's ever done.

11 of 19
1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder (Ferris Buellers Day Off)

If you're going to play hooky from school and jaunt around Chicago, there's no better car than a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. If you have the means, we highly recommend picking one up.

12 of 19
Pontiac Trans Am (Smokey and the Bandit)

These days, Georgians can get all the Coors they want. But in 1977, the beer wasn't sold east of the Mississippi River. Getting 400 cases to Atlanta required the help of Bo "Bandit" Darville and, of course, a now-legendary black Trans Am.

13 of 19
Ford Mustang GT (Bullitt)

For car enthusiasts, Bullitt is easily Steve McQueen's best movie. It's full of outstanding cars, and the central car-chase scene essentially invented the genre. In celebration of the Mustang GT's starring role in the film, Ford has released several Bullitt-edition Mustangs.

14 of 19
1955 Chevrolet 150 (Two-Lane Blacktop)

Driving down Route 66. Making a living racing for pinks. Falling for a hitchhiker you picked up in Flagstaff. Two-Lane Blacktop has it all. And, of course, there's that '55 Chevy.

15 of 19
Dodge Challenger R/T (Vanishing Point)

Kowalski's mission is simple. Drive a white Dodge Challenger R/T from Denver to San Francisco. But of course it gets complicated. And of course Vanishing Point becomes just as much about the car as anything.

16 of 19
Herbie (The Love Bug)

It's hard to have an unkind thought about a VW Beetle. Even people who couldn't care less about cars love the bug. And part of that is because of the original Love Bug.

17 of 19
DeLorean DMC-12 (Back to the Future)

If it weren't for Back to the Future, who knows how the DeLorean DMC-12 would be remembered. But thanks to Doc Brown and Marty McFly, John DeLorean's failed supercar is now the world's most famous time machine.

18 of 19
Toyota Supra (The Fast and the Furious)

Back in 2001, we had no idea The Fast and the Furious would spawn nine sequels. And we could never have predicted Paul Walker's untimely death. But we'll always remember that one race between Brian O'Conner's Supra and Dom Toretto's Charger.

19 of 19
Bumblebee (Transformers)

Michael Bay's Transformers series is one giant mishmash of things: giant robots fighting, things blowing up, and close-ups of women's bodies. But it's also responsible for the fact that people now refer to any yellow and black Camaro as Bumblebee.
