Zopa reveals most iconic screen cars of all time


James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 is the most iconic car in TV & Film history, according to a new study by pioneering financial services company, Zopa. Inspector Morse’s maroon MK II Jag followed in second place.

Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger from The Fast and The Furious came third, followed by Doc Brown’s DeLorean from the 1985 hit film Back to the Future. Completing the top five TV and Film motors was John Steed’s Bentley from The Avengers.

According to the research, Brits are a nation of petrol heads, with nearly a third (32 percent) admitting they daydream about their favourite car, with Aston Martin the most popular choice, just ahead of Audi and Lamborghini. More than two thirds (76 percent) of Brits would love a top of the range modern car, but a more classic 21 percent would love to own a vintage motor.

Zopa, who commissioned the research, offer simple personal loans at competitive rates, many of which are taken out by people to purchase a car. In 2017, one in every 280 cars in the UK was bought with a Zopa loan.
