The Detomaso was featured in the recent movie Fast 5. For sale are not one but two of these rare and imposing autos. For your money you’ll get a 1971 and 1972 version, one of which is little more than a husk and the other should be mostly intact although I’d stop quite a long way short of calling them concourse condition.

1966 Lincoln Batmobile as seen in ‘Batman’


The 1966 Lincoln Batmobile currently on sale is a replica, not the real deal. This is because the original car sold for a $4.6 million when it went up for auction.

The finishing is also excellent, so you would not have to dig deep into your pocket in order to restore its aesthetic appeal.

Yours for the small sum of around $100,000, sadly no cape is included in the sale. Find it here.

Lotus Esprit

If you watched the movie, Pretty Woman, you must have fallen head-over-heels for the 5-speed manual Lotus Esprit SE.

Therefore, if you would like to own and drive the car that was featured in the film that kick started Julia Robert’s film career, consider buying the Lotus Esprit SE.

1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am as seen in ‘Knightrider’

Although a replica, the 1982 Pontiac Firebird still looks and feels like the original 1982 Pontiac used in the movie. The vehicle features an automatic transmission system and a 5.0 liter engine.  Whilst it may lack the artificial intelligence from the series and we dare say it’s *probably* not bulletproof, it still has the look and the feel and for what could be a steal at $8,399 (so far) that’s enough right?
