Meanwhile, an ’80s classic tops the list, while most automotive icons come from the 21st century.

According to research, the DeLorean DMC-12 from the much-loved 1985 film Back to the Future is the most revered car in movie history.

It’s closely followed by the War Rig from Mad Max: Fury Road, which is one of a collection of post-2000 screen cars to make the list.

One of the other modern movie cars in the top 10 is the red Mini Cooper from the 2003 remake of Italian Job, perhaps surprisingly considered more iconic than its equivalent in the 1969 original.

Other entries on the list include Batman’s Batmobile from 1989 and the Ford GT Sport from the 2008 movie Gran Torino.

Fans of classic films might be shocked that none of the gorgeous classic cars driven by on-screen British super-spy James Bond make the list.

Even Bond’s legendary 1964 Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery in the 1965 classic Goldfinger couldn’t crack the top ten.

Researchers from Carwow also scanned their database to determine which car brand shows up the most.

Ford is the uncontrollable leader with 10,363 major film appearances, while the Ford Crown Victoria is the most filmed model, with 1,019 star turns.
