Best movie car of all time is..?

By | Fox News

 (Aston Martin)

Brits love Bond more than Bullitt.

A survey of 2,000 adults in the U.K. conducted by Hyundai found that their all-time favorite movie car is the Aston Martin DB5, which has appeared in various James Bond films.

Frank Bullitt’s 1968 Ford Mustang, which was recently uncovered after several decades in hiding and is the only film car listed in the National Historic Vehicle Register, came in ninth on the list.

Parked between the two in spaces 2-8 are Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Doc Brown’s DeLorean time machine, Herbie the Love Bug (the original, not Lindsay’s), Christian Bale-era Batman’s Tumbler, James Bond’s Lotus Esprit submarine from “The Spy Who Loved Me,” Greased Lightning and the Minis from the original “The Italian Job,” the film that respondents also said has the best chase scene ahead of the ones in “Bullitt” and “The French Connection.”


What’s missing from the 40 cars is the customized Hyundai Veloster from “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” which was the inspiration for the poll, but Hank Pym’s Triumph Spitfire from the first “Ant-Man” movie did manage to squeeze in at the bottom of the list:

1.     James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 (seven James Bond movies to date)
