A lot of times, cars play as big of a role in movies as actors do. Think about some of the iconic movies featuring cars: Back to the FutureBullitt, heck, how about Herbie the Love Bug?

But how much do those bad boys cost in real life? The wait is now over! We have the answers!

Here’s how much 5 iconic movie cars would cost to buy today.

1. 1970 Dodge Charger – The Fast and the Furious


This baby costs a cool $85,000. The Fast and Furious franchise has really catapulted these muscle cars to the forefront. When they came out in 1970, they were only valued at $3,711. My, how times change…

2. 1966 Ford Thunderbird – Thelma & Louise


The actual car from the film sold for $71,500 in 2008. She sure is a beauty, ain’t she?

Just don’t drive it over a cliff, okay?

3. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 – Back to the Future


Yes! One of the most iconic cars in cinematic history! The DeLorean driven by Marty McFly actually cost $25,000 when it was produced ($69,000 in today’s currency), and today the model is only valued at $32,378, according to recent sales. Kind of surprising, huh?

4. 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 Fastback – Bullitt


The streets and hills of San Francisco have never looked cooler than they did in 1968’s Bullitt with Steve McQueen. The film is famous for its car chase scenes throughout the extremely hilly city.

These models originally sold for $3,500 and now can fetch $80,000. Timeless and TOUGH.

5. 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition – Smokey and the Bandit


Burt Reynolds’ finest hour? Perhaps…though he was also pretty amazing in Deliverance, you must admit. But many people remember Reynolds for Smokey and the Bandit. And why not – just look at that Firebird!

The car originally cost $5,456, and they go for around $22,000 today. Not bad, not bad at all!
