Automotive Stars from the Silver Screen

Published: Friday 22nd of February 2013 | Author: Scott | Category: Industry News

Following on from our photo montage last Friday featuring some of the stars of the recent Bonham's auction in Paris, this week we thought we'd showcase some of the most iconic cars from film and TV that have been sold at auction in recent years.

The car above is unmistakable, the original Batmobile used in the 1960's TV series recently sold for a staggering $4.2million at auction. Here are some other famous cars that have gone under the hammer.

The Aston Martin DB5 which appeared in Goldfinger with Sean Connery recently sold in 2010 for $4.1 million.

The Porsche 911S driven by the legendary Steve McQueen in the 1971 film 'Le Mans' sold for $1.25 million.

The original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang went up for auction last year and was purchased by celebrity petrolhead Chris Evans for $800,000.

The 1929 Duesenburg used in the 1966 film Sprint featuring Elvis Presley was sold recently for $1.2 million.

The Lotus Esprit is another iconic car from the 1976 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me and was sold for $186,000.

Although not the actual car (apparently they destroyed every car used during filming), in 2008 a replica of the Dodge Charger, commonly known as the General Lee from the hit TV series Dukes of Hazzard sold for $450,000 at auction.

Travel back in time and in 1985 the film Back to the Future featured a heavily modified DeLorean DMC-12 and the car that featured in that film sold recently for $89,000

Boxer Ricky Hatton owns one and another one sold in 2007 for £44,000. We had to finish on the iconic Reliant Robin Regal Van that was used in the BBC hit TV series Only Fools and Horses.
