Default Fastest Hollywood Cars

In the July 2007 issue of Car and Driver, the magazine compared the 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times of 5 famous Hollywood cars. See if you can guess which one came out on top.

Starky and Hutch Ford Gran Torino
Back to the Future De Lorean
Mad Max Ford Falcon Interceptor
Dodge Charger General Lee
Original 1970s Batmobile

Scroll down...

In order (fastest to slowest):

1. General Lee (511 cu. in. Hemi, 550 hp./550 lb. ft. )- 0-60= 5.5 sec., 1/4= [email protected] mph. (Weight= 4,120 lbs.).

2. Starky and Hutch (360 cu. in., 435 hp./450 ft. lbs.)- 0-60= 5.6 sec., 1/4= [email protected] mph. (Weight= 4,040 lbs.).

3. Mad Max Ford Falcon (351 cu. in., 300 hp./380 ft. lbs.)- 0-60= 8.2 sec., 1/4= [email protected] mph. (Weight= 3,640 lbs.).

4.Batmobile (400 cu. in., 159 hp, 315 ft. lbs.)- 0-60= 13.9 sec., 1/4= [email protected] mph. (Weight= 4,020 lbs.). Note- 1979 smog motor. [X(]

Moral of the story- Don't believe what you see in the movies. Stick with MOPAR- you can't go wrong!

Well... I thought the Dukes of Hazzard movie was junk. But the General was really cool. You can't go wrong with the General, just wish they would of stayed true to the good ol boys theme of the series. Starsky and Hutch.. again too spoofy. But the striped tomato was cool. Mad Max Falcon... super cool and the movie was a real icon of the 80's. Nice to see a Mopar finish on top of a poll. But HP rules when you weigh alot of lbs. If they remake Vanishing Point lets hope they put alot of grunt into the set car, just in case they do another movie car test. We will come out on top again. Super charged 6.4 with a six speed would be hard to beat.
