“Movies and shows can create icons out of just about anything, not just people. Perfect examples of this are cars. Many vehicles were featured prominently in movies or TV shows as they played large roles which eventually led to them becoming very famous, a lot more famous than the real life cars that they were based on. Here is a look at some of the most well-known.
KITT (short for Knight Industries Two Thousand) was the car and, arguably, the main character from the popular 80s TV show Knight Rider. The car not only featured a lot of great gadgets and sci-fi technology for the time, but also an artificial intelligence which allowed it to talk. KITT became very popular, much more popular than the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am which it was actually based on. The show was responsible for boosting sales of the Trans Am through the roof thanks to people who wanted to drive their very own KITT car.
Although the DMC DeLorean does not have a unique name to identify itself by, it is still permanently linked to a movie – Back to the Future. In it, the main characters use their DeLorean to travel back in time and then into the future. This movie became extremely iconic and successful and whatever success DeLorean saw was due to it. Even today people buy old DeLoreans with the goal of making them look like the one in the movie.
The original one was based off a concept car called Ford Lincoln Futura, even though there are many versions of the Batmobile. The design was so popular that tuning companies started offering the Batmobile package and making other models look like the car in the show.
