7 Iconic Cars to Kick Your Holiday Up a Gear

Whether it’s to fight crime, cause mayhem, travel through time and space or simply to kick untold amounts of ass, some of the most exciting characters in popular fiction need a serious ride to do what they do best. However, every fictional character with a stunning vehicle has something in common: they’re busy as hell.

If you are planning on launching forth on a holiday that requires significant amounts of driving, what better way to cruise through your chosen location than in a souped-up vehicle of popular imagining. Only with your car hire option you won’t have the irritating inconvenience of having to solve mysteries, fight crime or raise hell. Well, unless you want to!

Here’s seven of the slickest, smoothest and most visually stunning vehicles to make your holiday unforgettable. In these bad-boys, the journey is the destination.

The Batmobile

Whether you’re a Batman traditionalist or a fan of the gritty Christopher Nolan reboot of the franchise, there’s no denying that the Batmobile is a force to be reckoned with. Traffic becomes a problem of the past when you hire out the new Tumbler version, displayed here in all its jaw-dropping glory!

Mad Max’s Pursuit Special GT351

Equally at home on the long stretches of outback road or in the built-up major cities, other drivers are sure to give way once they see you as the Road Warrior behind the wheel of one of these beasts. Sure to take you Beyond Thunderdome… or anywhere else that you want to go.

Lady Penelope’s FAB 1

This six-wheeled with its signature aircraft-style canopy is the very height of class and sophistication, much like its fictional owner. Recline in comfort as you glide effortlessly to your destination. (Parker not included)

Optimus Prime Truck Cab

Admittedly you would be hard pressed to find a truck that actually transforms into the legendary leader of the Autobots. However, you probably wouldn’t want that to happen whilst you were driving anyway as it would create an awful mess. But there’s more to this truck cab than meets the eye with its signature Autobot icon above the grille.

Herbie Volkswagen Beatle

A perfect car to hire for a trip down memory lane. The one slight problem is that you would have very limited control over where that trip would take you, as Herbie has a ruthlessly independent streak!

DeLorean DMC-12

Great Scott this is a good looking car! Think bigger than choosing a new place to visit: try a new time as well! Provided you can get your hands on the required plutonium, just set a date and crank the speed up to 88mph. Why not check out France in medieval times, or see the Egyptian Pyramids, just as they are completed? Make sure you leave enough juice to get home though.

Knight Rider Pontiac Trans-Am


What could be easier than hiring a car that drives itself? With KITT in control you can focus all your attention on lapping up the appreciating stares from onlookers as you pass by.
