Cars of the Silver Screen

Looking for car insurance can be a time consuming and expensive business. However, if you were trying to insure some of these film treasures you might expect a few extra zeros on the end of your premium! From the Ford Mercury that James Dean famously drove in his last film, Rebel Without a Cause, to the brand new Audi R8 e-tron that Tony Stark drives in Iron Man 3, cars have played a massive part in iconic film history.

However, it is not always the ultra-cool cars that steal the limelight in blockbuster movies. Quite often the most memorable cars are the most unlikely. Take, for instance the Cadillac 'Ecto-1' that the Ghostbusters used to get around the busy New York streets, or the Volkswagen Beetle that got into so many scrapes in the Herbie movies.

To celebrate these unlikely heroes, we've taken a look at the timeline of great cars of the silver screen.
