Movie cars are mythical things that exist in works of fiction, but are also tangible vehicles in the real world. The theatrical impression they leave on us from a young age often results in hysteria from adults when encountering their four-wheeled childhood hero for real in later life. But what if that magical moment of meeting your hero could be everyday?

Arguably one of the most instantly recognisable TV cars of all-time, the Adam West era Batmobile was designed by the late George Barris. Its scoops, ducts, and fins gave the vehicle a unique aeronautic feel — truly alien when parked next to a conventional car of the era.
This replica is powered by a hearty V8 motor and is loyal to the original vehicle. You’ll find all of Batman’s standard equipment in the custom interior, but also a few added extras such as a reversing camera to make life a little easier. Holy mackerel Batman!
Now here’s something a little sinister looking! Complete with hood-mounted machine guns, the Black Beauty was always the star of the Green Hornet for car nuts. This example is actually a real stunt car from 2011 movie inspired by the TV show.
Based on a 1966 Chrysler Imperial, the Green Hornet and Kato made their getaways via a 454 Ci V8 motor that lives under the hood.
One of the biggest star cars of the past decade has to be Disney Pixar’s Lightning McQueen from the Cars movies. While McQueen is a totally fictitious vehicle inspired by NASCAR and the race series, his huge eyes, characterful mouth, and distinctive livery are instantly recognisable.
This McQueen replica is based on a Mitsubishi 3000GT and wears a custom bodykit.
When the ‘car of the future’ burst onto our TVs with the launch of Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff, we were all instantly captivated. The quick-talking artificially intelligent machine was a bigger character than even Michael Knight. Serving justice via dangerous missions, the lightly modified Pontiac Firebird Trans Am became an iconic part of pop culture.
This detailed replica looks every inch the real thing, and even hosts a cockpit with detailed switchgear. Imagine arriving to dinner in KITT with that iconic scanner ablaze!
The Beverly Hillbillies was a quirky show about countryfolk discovering oil and becoming overnight millionaires. Moving to Beverly Hills, they took their old truck which proved a huge contrast amongst modern traffic.
Based on a Dodge pickup, this recreation will allow its new owner to relive the classic show. Its faux patina and various props are exacting to the TV car’s specifications.
Could this be the most famous car in the world? In 1989 Tim Burton directed a darker vision of Batman that stuck close to the comic book source material. With Michael Keaton playing the caped crusader and Jack Nicholson fulfilling the iconic role of the Joker, Batman’s car needed to be something special to do the cast justice.
It’s still just as incredible to look at today as it did in the late 1980s! Driving the definitive movie Batmobile is a boyhood dream for many, but this replica with functioning afterburner and deployable machine guns is a reality.
This 1967 MonkeeMobile replica is so well executed, that it was actually used in the 45th anniversary tour. Signed by Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, and Davy Jones, this modified Pontiac GTO featured a GM V8 engine and four-speed manual transmission.
