Bond's Lotus Esprit voted top movie car

By Lester Haines
Published Friday 19th August 2005 14:42 GMT

The subaquatic Lotus Esprit which completely outacted Roger Moore in the 1977 James Bond outing The Spy Who Loved Me has been voted the most memorable car in film history in a poll by UK DVD rental outfit Lovefilm.

The souped-up DeLorean from Back to the Future came second, followed by Starsky and Hutch's Ford Torino, VW Beetle Herbie and the Batmobile trailing along in fifth.

The rest of the top ten comprised vehicles from Bullitt, The Blues Brothers, Grease, Ghostbusters and Thelma & Louise, but since from these we can only vividly recall the Ghostbusters' wheels and sort of vaguely remember what good old Bullitt was driving (no emails please), we assume that there simply aren't that many memorable movie cars to go round these days.

After all, where are Christine, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Genevieve? For that matter, what about the plethora of motorised talent in Mad Max; or Sean Connery's Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger, eh? I tell you what, though, Sean Connery was by far the best Bond. God alone knows what they were thinking when they cast Roger... [Editorial note: As ever, readers can catch the rest of this insight into where the Bond franchise went wrong in the snug of Ye Olde Boy in Witheringspoonhampton where our correspondent will be found angrily muttering "And don't get me started on Timothy bloody Dalton" into his foaming flagon of Thruppleton's light and mild].

Hey Airwolf,

You know the vehicle in your picture is parked on Barham right off the 101 freeway across from Universal Studios? It is in a prop parking lot.
