This weekend, a Shelby GT 500 Super Snake will take center stage in the new Warner Bros. film Getaway, starring Ethan Hawke and, yes, Selena Gomez. That prompted us to reflect on some of our favorite rides from relatively recent flicks (post Steve McQueen’s iconic Bullitt run). Check ’em out and see if you don’t find yourself yearning to play hero—or villain…
Ferrari 575M Maranello, Bad Boys II (2003) When it comes to movie car chases in the past 10 years, the freeway scene in Bad Boys II will likely go down as one of the wildest—and driving a lot of the action was Detective Will Smith, er, Mike Lowrey behind the wheel of this sweet Ferrari 575M Maranello. Watch it here!
Ford Mustang 5.0, Drive (2013) While Ryan Gosling owns a 1972 Chevy Malibu in the film, it’s not until the stuntman-turned-getaway driver opts for a Mustang 5.0 that we get a real feel for what he’s capable of behind the wheel. Watch it here!
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, Fast & Furious 6 (2013) Although he’s known for his passion for American cars throughout the run of the Fast & Furious franchise, Dom (Vin Diesel) pulls some stunts in his Charger that really remind us why we love Detroit muscle. Watch it here!
Shelby GT 500, I Am Legend (2007) Who can forget the opening scene, where scientist Will Smith, er, Robert Neville chases deer through a post-apocalyptic New York City in a Shelby GT Mustang? Watch it here!
1967 Shelby GT 500, Gone In 60 Seconds (2000) Speaking of Shelby ’Stangs, Nicholas Cage’s high-octane driving in the classic, limited edition “Eleanor” left a lot of us craving an old school Pony car. Watch it here! Watch it here!
MINI Cooper, The Italian Job (2003) For some folks, this flick was their first exposure to the MINI Cooper, but even those familiar with the car were captivated by some of the maneuvers Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) and his team pulled off in the compacts. Watch it here!
Aston Martin DBS V12, Quantum of Solace (2008) Aston Martins have been synonymous with James Bond flicks for much of the franchise’s 50-year run, but the chase scene in the DBS V12 with Daniel Craig behind the wheel helped usher in a new era for the luxury brand. Watch it here!
Chevrolet Camaro, Transformers (2007) Seeing Sam’s Bumblebee scan from a 1977 Camaro into a new model gave more than a few of us goosebumps, adults maybe even more so than kids. Watch it here!
BMW M5, Ronin (1998) While Ronin features a number of great chase scenes, when the sexy Dierdre (Natascha McElhone) straps into the M5 and tries to outdrive Vincent (Jean Reno) in a Peugeot, we dare you to look away. Watch it here!
