The Most Iconic and Memorable Movie Cars to Ever Hit the Silver Screen

Cars 2

A real-life version of Lightning McQueen was created in 2017 for the Detroit Motor Show, but before this version was created, an article in 2006 attempted to translate the Pixar favorite into real life specs. The reporter guessed that the car was "part Le Mans endurance racer with some Lola and Ford GT40 thrown in." When the real version was created, it followed suit.
