How much are these famous cars from movies and TV worth?

The coolest cars come from the world of film and TV.

Some of these four-wheeled characters are the reason we fell in love with cars in the first place. So how much would it cost to put one of these in your parking spot?

We've done some serious napkin maths to work out the value of these 10 famous cars. We've looked at their age and condition, plus any unique features that help them stand out.

And, if you're thinking of selling your car and want a quick, competitive quote, check out Motorpoint's free Value My Car tool.

Volkswagen Beetle – Herbie

  • Value – between £10,000 and £167,000

Herbie's about as cute and cuddly as cars get – apart from that terrifying nightmare scene in Herbie Rides Again! This puckish little Volkswagen Beetle wowed audiences with his remarkable ability to drive himself – achieved by hiding a stunt driver in the rear seat with extended linkages for the steering and brakes.

If you fancy sticking Herbie on your drive, you've a few options. Ratty old Beetles can be bought for less than £5,000, but they'll need some pricey restoration work before you can go Bananas. Half-decent examples are priced around £10,000 or, if you want the real-deal Love Bug, the last one sold for $212,500 (~£167,000).

Batmobile aka. The Tumbler – Batman Begins

  • Value – more than £785,000

When Christopher Nolan took the reins to the Batman film franchise, he introduced the world to a grittier, more realistic version of the caped crusader. A signature piece of the redesign was Bruce Wayne's monstrous new Batmobile. Nicknamed the Tumbler, it was designed to be part-Lamborghini, part-tank.

Amazingly, a street-legal replica was sold in the US for $1 million (around £785,000), letting you live out the ultimate vigilante fantasy. Of course, if you want all Batman's tech, including a jet engine, rocket launchers and even a stealth mode, you'll probably need several million dollars and a few military-supply contracts.

Aston Martin DB5 – James Bond: Goldfinger

  • Value – more than £750,000

James Bond has had more than his fair share of posh cars, including a BMW Z8 and the world's only waterproof Lotus Esprit. However, when we close our eyes and picture Her Majesty's top secret agent – which we swear doesn't happen that often – its always an Aston Martin DB5 in graceful Silver Birch we see him next to.

If you want to live the double-0 lifestyle, you better make sure you've got lots of 0s in your bank account. Expect to pay at least £750,000 for a genuine DB5 in good condition and much more than that if you want one of the authentic movie cars. All that's before you've even priced up an ejector seat or spinning numberplate attachment.

Pontiac Aztek – Breaking Bad

  • Value – around £8,000

Before starring as Walter White's car in Breaking Bad, the Pontiac Aztek already had something of a reputation – and not the good kind. Its deeply awkward looks, dumpy profile and tacky interior saw many label it as one of the worst-looking cars of all time. The fact Mr White's car was also hearing-aid beige did little to help.

Despite its efforts, Pontiac did manage to get a few thousand Azteks onto the used market and the car's iffy image has kept prices nice and low. Your best bet is to find an example in Europe and have it delivered to the UK, which we reckon you could accomplish for around £8,000 all-in.

DeLorean DMC-12 – Back to the Future

  • Value – more than £50,000

The story of how Doc Brown and Marty McFly end up travelling through time in a DeLorean DMC-12 is wild. Almost as wild as the actual story of John DeLorean and his attempts to put the DMC-12 on sale – which ended in the company's bankruptcy and his arrest on drug-trafficking charges in 1982.

You'll need at least £50,000 to put one of these stainless-steel stunners on your drive, and probably quite a bit more on top to fix the inevitable faults with its feeble Peugeot-sourced V6 engine. Of course, if you want the full time-travelling kit – including those all-important flux capacitors – you'll need far deeper pockets.

Dodge A100 aka. Mystery Machine – Scooby-Doo

  • Value – more than £20,000

Fans can't quite agree whether Scoob and the gang's iconic Mystery Machine is a Dodge A100 van or a G-series Chevrolet Van. Either way, this mid-'60s load lugger puts in the hard work ferrying the ghost-hunting great dane and those meddling kids to their next great mystery – despite the answer always being 'the butler did it'.

Any Dodge A100 vans that have survived this long will probably have been carefully tended to and may even have been fully restored. Expect to pay at least £15,000 for a serviceable example, before the cost of moving it to the UK and adding that gorgeous flower-power custom paint job. Zoinks!

Plymouth Valiant – The Simpsons

  • Value – more than £20,000

Perhaps more surprising than The Simpsons' decades-long production run, is the fact that Homer's elderly soft-pink sedan is still going after all these years. Characters in Springfield have identified the car as a 1986 Plymouth 'Junkerolla', but ardent fans believe the design is actually based on a real-world early-'70s Plymouth Valiant.

If you fancy rolling around like America's favourite dysfunctional family, you'll be shopping from a very small handful of carefully maintained Valiant examples. Prices for decent, rust-free cars start around £20,000, but you'll need to budget a little extra for a respray to match the original car's peachy complexion.

Toyota Supra – The Fast and the Furious

  • Value – more than £71,000

The first Fast and Furious film took the Toyota Supra from a JDM icon to a budget-busting legend. With Brian and Dom behind the wheel, plus a few overnight parts from Japan, this turbocharged muscle coupe will decimate all. The Supra's starring role has now made it one of the most valuable '90s cars on sale this side of a McLaren F1.

You can't just buy any Supra, however. Bragging rights are reserved for the most desirable spec – twin-turbo cars with manual gearboxes. Find one of these and you'll be spending at least $90,000 (~£71,000), and that's before you add all the extra go-fast parts and the gallons of nitrous needed live your life a quarter-mile at a time.

K.I.T.T. – Knight Rider

K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider
  • Value – more than £40,000

Knight Industries Two Thousand – or K.I.T.T. to his friends – is a high-tech crime-fighting vehicle driven by Michael Knight. The car has dozens of unique features including a sweeping red scanner and a blisteringly fast turbo boost, but its standout function was the sarcastic AI interface that readily made a fool of its human driver.

Lots of K.I.T.T. replicas have been made over the years – some better than others – all using the same Pontiac Trans-Am base. Most convincing replicas are at least £40,000, but you'll also need to budget for the cost of running an old V8-powered American car, which usually requires a reasonable amount of bravery.

Mini 1000 – Mr Bean

  • Value – more than £10,000

Mr Bean is an odd little man so, of course, he drives an odd little car. Fans mostly agree his is a '70s Leyland Mini 1000, possibly borrowing a few parts from an earlier '60s model. Although any old Mini with a bright green paint job and mismatched black bonnet should work – especially if you drive it from an armchair on the roof!

Rusty Minis in need of restoration can be had for less than £5,000, but you'll be looking closer to £10,000 for a cleaner example that's ready to drive straight away. Be aware, however, if you spot a light-blue Reliant Regal while driving your Mini, it'll be your sworn duty to run them off the road and steal their parking space.

What about a car you can actually buy?

These famous cars are a lot of fun, but would be a massive faff to own in real life – and probably cost a fortune, too! Why not shop Motorpoint's huge selection of great-value used cars for something a little more down-to-earth?
