Top 10 TV Cars

Torque News' Top 10 Television Cars

Just as in the movies, the cars we see on television are often the star or best supporting actor in the show. Here are the top ten picks for best TV cars from Torque News.

Earlier this week, we published our Torque News' Top 10 Movie Cars list, which detailed our top picks for vehicles from the movies. Now, here are the top 10 cars from TV according to the Torque News staff.

These are, obviously, North American-centric as that is our audience here at Torque. There are some surprises from international shows which became popular in the U.S. and Canada, though, so keep your eyes open.

#1 – Batman (live action) / 1955 Lincoln Futura concept
The car that made the iconic television series starring Adam West started life as a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car in 1954, built by hand at the Ghia Body Works in Italy and debuting at the 1955 Chicago Auto Show. It then was parked, but stayed in the minds of Hollywood dreamers who gave it its first film role in 1959 in the movie It Started With a Kiss alongside Debbie Reynolds and, appropriately, Glenn Ford. Then it was heavily modified into the machine we all know and love by George Barris as a last-minute replacement for a Cadillac in the upcoming Batman live action TV series. It also appeared in the spinoff movie and is now reputed to be worth $2 million.

Two of my favorite childhood goodies, The Munsters, Munster Koach and the Ferrari 308 GTS, the lighter fiberplastic body and carburated! Seriously, how much cooler does it get than the Munster Koach when you're a kid?
