Movies and cinema came along at the same time. It’s no small wonder that at some point along the way, we invented movie theaters where you can take your car. And cars have been an important part of cinema in all it’s genres– horror, comedy, action, espionage, science fiction, and even musicals!
Everyone has favorites, and we’ve been compiling a list of our favorites. Here’s a look at movies for hardcore car lovers!
Action - Gone In Sixty Seconds
This remake still has some of the most amazing on-screen car scenes ever filmed.It’s a little silly, but it’s undeniably fun!
Sports - Ford vs. Ferrari
The tale about how a small team got Ford to the top of the international racing scene has some incredible racing in it, but we’re suckers for this scene where the CEO is taken for a joyride in the car he built before the Ford executives can shut down their efforts.
Horror - Christine
There’s plenty of possessed car movies out there. The Car and The Wraith are two. But John Carpenter’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel Christine understands car lovers.
Espionage/Thriller - Ronin
John Frakenheimer’s spy tale of post-Cold War spies on the open market has one of the best car chases ever filmed.
Musical - Grease
The then-kitschy love of 50’s car culture came through loud and clear with this number in 1977’s Grease.
Science Fiction - The Matrix Reloaded
Although there’s never time in a Matrix movie to stop and gawk at cars, we think this chase scene is one of the coolest things!
Comedy - The Blues Brothers
Jake and Elwood’s desperate race to Chicago veers from thrilling to hysterical!
Heist - The Italian Job
While the original is still the best, the chase scenes in the 2003 remake show off what the Mini Coopers can do!
