These five magical cars are proof that sometimes the coolest cars are literally too good to be true. The heroes from these films and programs would all be lost without their trusty cars. Here are the five best magical cars from film and TV.
1. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has more going for it than an annoyingly catchy theme song. This car is renovated from an old famous racing car and somehow inherits magical abilities along the way. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’s abilities are so remarkable that even its inventor is unaware of them. This magic car can release wings to fly or transform into a speedboat if in aquatic-based danger.
2. KITT – Knight Rider
Far before talk of artificial intelligence was commonplace, KITT was helping David Hasselhoff solve crimes. This modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am was the perfect sidekick. KITT has too many super-features to list but put simply it was a fully self-aware being that could talk to Hasselhoff whilst providing indestructible destruction. What a combo.
3. Herbie – The Love Bug: Herbie Fully Loaded
Another ahead-of-its time vehicle is the tenacious and totally loveable Herbie. Another self-aware being that knew what it wanted, Herbie faced many challenges in their extensive six-film career as a serious auto racing contender. A true servant to motorsport and film alike.
4. The Flying Ford Anglia – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Whether you like Harry Potter or not, one thing’s for certain – the Flying Ford Anglia from this film is the coolest Ford Anglia ever made. This seemingly average Ford family car is transformed in this film into an invisible flying car which endlessly comes through for Harry and Co. Firstly, it gets Harry and Ron to Hogwarts, then it helps them survive an attack from a magical willow and finally comes to their rescue by saving them from being eaten by an army of enormous spiders. Not bad!
5. The Magic School Bus – The Magic School Bus
We’re sure that more than a few kids growing up in the early ‘90s would put the Magic School Bus on their Christmas wish list! This ordinary school bus could take you pretty much anywhere you wanted – famous locations from the TV series include outer space, the inside of the human body and the dinosaur age. Better than any school trips we can remember!
Whilst it’s always the heroes that get the credit, these five magical vehicles prove that they would nowhere without them. We’re sure that for a lot of petrol heads these cars were the beginning of their fascination with automobiles!
