James Bond’s Aston Martin voted greatest film car

James Bond’s Aston Martin has been named the greatest film car – beating the DeLorean from Back to the Future, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

A study of 2,000 adults revealed Bond’s iconic DB5, which has featured in seven flicks to date, was the ultimate movie motor, with 27 per cent of the vote, reports Mirror.

Herbie, the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, the publication said, came in at number four, with another car from the Bond movie franchise, the Lotus Esprit S1, which featured in The Spy Who Loved Me, in fifth.

The 1948 Ford Deluxe, more commonly known as “Greased Lightning”, and the Minis from The Italian Job, also ranked highly in the top 40.

The Batmobile, from Batman Begins, as well as Tim Burton’s portrayal of the vehicle in Batman and Batman Returns, were also firm favourites.

The research was commissioned by Uber Eats, which will be delivering the KFC Zinger Popcorn Bucket in famous movie cars such as the Batmobile, the Aston Martin DB5 and the Ghostbusters car.
