Top six cars from 2016 Oscar nominated films

With the Academy Awards just around the corner, we took a look at some of the best cars from this year’s Oscar-nominated films.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

This George Miller film won the love of feminists and car enthusiasts everywhere. The whole movie was basically a driving-lovers wet dream with a claimed 150 vehicles used in the film. From Nux’s Chevrolet 5-door coup, to the firey Chrysler Valiant Charger V8 seen here.

BRIDGE OF SPIES

A Steven Spielberg drama about the Cold War, spies, lawyers and the CIA – our kind of movie. Tom Hanks is a lawyer, trying to free a US pilot who was captured by the Soviet Union in 1960. And there to share the screen is Volvo classic, the P1800 coupe.

CAROL

There’s nothing our Lifestyle Editor loves more than a romantic drama, set in the glamorous decade of the 1950s. This movie about the growing bond between two women, staring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, features a range of beautiful classic cars including a 1949 Packard Super Deluxe 8, and a 1952 Cadillac.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON

When it comes to Oscar nominated movies and cars, Straight Outta Compton gets us talking. The movie, based in Southern LA, is about the revolution of hip-hop in the late ’80s and features an array of cool cars. Our top picks are the 1987 Ferrari Testarossa, the 1964 Chevrolet Impala Convertible and the 1980 Lincoln Continental Mark VI (featured here).

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

It wouldn’t a movie about some erotic rich guy without some cool cars. The cult movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, was the talk of the town – well, certainly with the female population. But for the car-enthusiests who were forced to sit through it, there were a couple of hidden treats like the Audi A3 and R8 Spyder (featured below).  Audi certainly got their fair share of product placement in this movie.

BONUS: FAST AND FURIOUS 7

It was a movie that pulled at heart strings because of the very sad and untimely death of actor, Paul Walker. Fast and Furious 7 may not be nominated for an Oscar but we couldn’t possibly do a piece on cars in Hollywood without including this iconic movie. As you’d expect, this movie wasn’t short of car porn, from the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T and Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 to the Ferrari 458 Italia, 2004 Aston Martin DB9, and 2014 Maserati Ghibli. But our pick of the bunch, the Lykan HyperSport.
