There are the cars that dreams are made of, at least of the Hollywood variety. These are among the top fictional cars of all time. CLICK HERE if you missed the beginning of this article.

Top fictional cars No. 13 – Warthog from ‘Halo’

When it comes to video games in general and first-person shooters in particular, few titles are as iconic as “Halo.” The four-wheeler with major firepower, the Warthog, gives you a huge advantage in the game. Imagine the things you could destroy with one of these Gatling gun-toting dune buggies in real life – not that you should even be considering such things.

Top fictional cars No. 14 – Mario’s Kart

It’s back to video games with the whimsical go-kart from the Mario Kart series. As opposed to depending upon conventional weaponry and propulsion, Mario depends upon turtle shells and mushroom power. If life were only so simple.

Top fictional cars No. 15 – The digital Lamborghini Countach from ‘Automan’

It was the 1980s, and Disney had just made some waves with the computer animated feature film “Tron.” If you blinked, you missed the blip on the TV copycat radar called “Automan.” While the series was far from revolutionary and somewhat less than exciting, the cool car remains: Automan’s digital Lamborghini Countach. The day-glo accents (a la Tron) weren’t the real highlight of this thing. Like the lightcycles from Tron, Automan’s Lambo could corner at 90 degree angles instantaneously and comfortably, even at top speed. How’s that for turning radius and handling?

Top fictional cars No. 16 – Green Hornet’s Black Beauty

We’re entering James Bond territory this time, but this 1965 Chrysler Imperial is less subtle. Flamethrowers, missiles, spikes and machine guns are only the beginning. Don’t mess with Britt Reid and Kato, bad guys.

Top fictional cars No. 17 – The Ecto-1 from ‘Ghostbusters’

Busting truly does make you feel good when you’re behind the wheel of this tricked-out Cadillac hearse. While very little of the car’s capabilities are spelled out in the “Ghostbusters” films, all you have to do is look at the gadgetry stacked on the roof to realize that Gozer the Gozerian was toast from the beginning.

Top fictional cars No. 18 – K.I.T.T. from ‘Knight Rider’

If you’re planning to take a “shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist,” you want a bulletproof, super-intelligent Pontiac Trans-Am to reassure you with the voice of William Daniels from “St. Elsewhere.” You want K.I.T.T., aka the Knight Industries Two Thousand. However, if you’re driver David Hasselhoff, you’re ultra-groovy. Turbo boost won’t make a dent in that hair gel and sky-high ego.

Top fictional cars No. 19 – Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang

A car with wings and the ability to transform into a boat? Yes, please. This whimsical, Rube Goldbergian creation from Ian Fleming’s 1964 novel “Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang: The Magical Car” (later a 1968 film film starring Dick Van Dyke) isn’t sexy, but it is an inventor’s dream.

Top fictional cars No. 20 – The Gadgetmobile

Remember “Inspector Gadget?” Not the Matthew Broderick monstrosity of a film, but the television cartoon. It’s a car, a minivan, a boat or a jet plane. Like the Inspector himself, however, it was somewhat unpredictable.

Top fictional cars No. 21 – Tumbler tank from Christopher Nolan ‘Batman’ trilogy

Batman arguably ranks atop the list of guys with the coolest cars. This rocket-powered supertank from the Christian Bale “Batman” films has a little bit of everything. But the greatest honor, arguably, is its endorsement by velvet-voiced Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox).

Top fictional cars No. 22 – Optimus Prime

Not even Michael Bay could tear down the stature of the John Wayne of robots. Optimus Prime, curator of the Allspark and leader of the benevolent Autobots, transforms into a commanding semi tractor-trailer. Stopping the evil Decepticons? That’s a big 10-4, freedom-loving peoples of the universe!

Top fictional cars No. 23 – The ‘Scooby Doo’ Mystery Machine

We all have our suspicions about Shaggy’s hydroponic horticultural activities in the back of this van, but the truth is that the Mystery Machine was all about the gang solving mysteries with the help of their loyal canine with the munchies, Scooby Doo. The multi-colored mural that festooned the van was a rainbow window onto the 1970s.

Top fictional cars No. 24 – 2012 Stark Industries Super Car

Much like the futuristic Lexus created for “Minority Report,” this ultra-exclusive 2015 Acura NSX supercar concept was made-to-order as Tony Stark’s ride in “The Avengers.” It allegedly costs nearly $10 million with all the bells and whistles, and that doesn’t even cover the cost of the Iron Man suit. At that point, you’re talking spendy.
