Famous anime cars?:

So I'm wracking my brain trying to come up with a list of recognizable (modern-day) cars and vehicles that have been featured in anime. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are:

- the yellow Vespa from FLCL - Misato's car from Neon Genesis Evangelion - that roadster Lupin drives at the beginning of Castle of Cagliostro

Can anyone help me out here?

... Why Misato's car?

Depending on how widely you define "vehicle", spaceships like the Bebop count, of course.

I think this thread is more appropriate for Manga & Anime conversations.
Stay awesome, people.

Um, The Mach 5?

Also, not sure this is the right place, unless this is for some fanfic or something.

Cool Car does have an anime section, right? Look there.

Also, Takumi's GT-S.

Maybe that motorcycle in AKIRA?

I have to wonder why you're asking this on Writer's Block and not, say, the Manga & Anime section of the forums.

It is.
/* Depending on how widely you define "vehicle", spaceships like the Bebop count, of course. */

I'm looking specifically for modern-day-ish ground vehicles - cars and motorcycles. So the Mach 5 and the Akira bike work. Anything else?

@tinwatchman: It's not a roadster, it's a Fiat Nuovo 500 with custom engine mods.

I stand corrected, then.

@Furiko: But it's a convertible, right?

Then again, yeah, roadster makes me think of the Mercedes-Benz SLK-class, Jaguar XK or Porsche Boxster.

Nah, the iconic lemon-yellow car's a hard-top with a sunroof. The convertible/roadster is onscreen for like five seconds in the flashback sequence, later in the film; that one's Arsène Lupin Issei's old 35hp Moreau-Lepton, unless I miss my guess.

Man, that thing would have been almost sixty when he inherited it; that is a quality automobile.

I saw. Thanks! Just wanted to see if anyone had any other favorites.
Takumi's AE 86 Trueno from Initial D and Akio Asakura's Devil Z from Wangan Midnight.

How did this thread get necro'd?
My bad, was I not supposed to?

I don't think it's against forum rules, I just find it weird that out of all our buried threads, this is the one that comes back from the dead a year later.

It's also in the wrong forum. I hollered for it to be moved, but no-one responded...
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
