Movie Vehicles We’d Love to Have

Wouldn’t it be amazing if the most awesome vehicles that we saw in movies were real? Wouldn’t they be even cooler if you owned them? Jay Leno’s classic car collection would be no comparison to your wild vehicle collection. Here’s a list of the most awesome movie vehicles that we would love to have in real life.

8. Herbie the Love Bug

Remember Herbie? He was a little Volkswagen beetle who starred in a series of five movies from the first one in 1968 to the last one in 2005. Herbie was a fun loving a race car with a mind of his own. For most of us, this is a piece of our childhood, so it would be cool to have just based on that. Plus, you could let him drive you to work while you sleep!

7. James Bond’s Jet Pack

Do you remember “Thanderball” (1965) with James Bond? It would be incredible if the jet pack that James Bond (Sean Connery) used to escape from the villain was real. I’m sure you’ve seen a similar one in the “Grand Theft Auto” video games. From that, you can get a definite idea of the practicality of a jet pack. Not to mention that looks like it would be a lot of fun just to play around with too. Talk about your off-road vehicles!

6. The U.S.S. Enterprise

In theory, “Star Trek’s” U.S.S. Enterprise would be awesome to own. You could take vacations that are out of this world! The only drawback that I could see is that you would need a full crew to operate the ship, but if you have a large family, then you’re covered.

5. The Time Machine from “The Time Machine”

The original “Time Machine” movie starring Rod Taylor back in 1960 was a better time machine than the one in the remake and more realistic-looking too. I can think of so many practical and selfish uses for a time machine. Do you know how in life when you mess up sometimes and you’d love to have a “do over”? With a time machine, you could have a “do over” every time.

4. James Bond’s Moon Buggy

This moon buggy from “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971) is like a colossal off-road vehicle. It would be incredible to take this out on the roughest terrain you could find. This is even better than monster trucks!

3. The Batmobile

The best Batmobile is definitely the one from “Batman Begins” (2005). This awesome machine, if it were real would have a 500-horsepower, 5.0-liter engine. It would be over 9 feet tall and 15 feet long and would weigh over 2 tons and could go from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. Though these are impressive specs, that’s not the best thing about the Batmobile, but you already knew that.

The Batmobile has a propane-powered jet engine that, with the assistance of the vector controls can allow the vehicle to jump six feet high. As you know, it also could walk on its long legs, make it sort of simulate a spider. The only downfall that I could see with the Batmobile is the practicality issue. I mean, seriously, it won’t even fit in a public parking garage!

2. The “Back to the Future” DeLorean DMC-12

The DeLorean was in the entire series of the “Back to the Future” movies released in 1985, 1989, and 1990. Again, we can’t help that time machines are cool, but the DeLorean is a great looking vehicle. After the enhancements were made to the vehicle at the end of the original “Back to the Future” in 1985, the DeLorean could not only perform great on the open road, but it could hover above the road. It looks like a lot of fun and you could travel through history (or the future) in style.

1. Pod Racers from Star Wars I

If the pod racer were real, it would only be for fun – and a lot of it. This is a triangular shaped vehicle that’s meant only for one pilot and no passengers. There are two propulsion engines on the back, and – oh, it can fly.

    Herbie the Love Bug Ha! and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Ok was a bay area girl and owned my share of VW’s, the ugliest one looked like a piece of “sky lab”. I had to torch that baby. I also owned an Austin Marina it was the old 60’s refrigerator avacado green. yummy.

    Now I am thinking green.. you probably can’t get the green score of the jet pack but this was pretty fun (carfunfootprint)

    So are we what we drive? cause if so sign me up for the Lexus 2054 Minority Report!
