Batmobile (Tumbler) – The Dark Knight. Christian Bale returns as everyone’s favorite Dark Knight in The Dark Knight. Though Heath Ledger almost steals the whole show donning the Joker’s maniacal makeup, one of the true stars of the movie is the famed Batmobile. Looking like a light tactical vehicle that could storm at ease through the streets or a war zone.
Mach 5 – Speed Racer. Sure this movie took a big nose-dive flop at the box office; that’s because the Wachowski brothers only cared about the cars, especially the Mach 5. The live-action film looks like cartoon, alienating and thrilling fans all at once. Go, Speed Racer, go!
Dodge Viper – Wanted. Ok, the plot is a little bit weak: A frustrated office worker learns that he is the son of a professional assassin, and that he shares his father’s superhuman killing abilities. But the Wanted does star Angelina Jolie, while the car chase is high octane. No one steers with their feet while firing heat like Jolie.
Aston Martin DBS – Quantum of Solace. Though no Sean Connery, Daniel Craig is really holding his own as James Bond. And how can you have a great Bond movie without a few hair-raising car chases? The movie, in fact, opens in a middle of a car chase with Bond’s signature Aston Martin while in the midst of a tunnel where tractor trailers veer every way but loose. Also noted is the pivotal role of the Ford Ka alongside the film’s beautiful but feisty leading lady, Olga Kurylenko.
You name it – Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Speaking of sequels, Indiana Jones is back– that means non-stop action. The mark of the Spielberg school is evident in the movie’s car-chase sequences. The most spectacular chase is through the Amazon forest, a wildly imaginative deployment of every possible combination of vehicle, weapon, obstacle, and flying human body.
