The cinema-going public has a long lasting love affair with the incredibly iconic cars that star in feature films.

Producers leave no expense spared as they create cool and iconic cars that stretch the limits of technology and the imagination in their pursuit of automotive perfection.

Children’s films, comedies, musicals, action adventures and thrillers have all featured iconic cars that have turned out to be the stars, but how much would it cost to insure them?

The team at Adrian Flux dimmed the lights, watched the films, calculated risks and did the sums, to come up with the perfect insurance packages at the perfect prices for some of these iconic cars.

The team crunched the numbers for Kenickie’s 1948 Ford De Luxe from Grease, Doc Brown’s 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 from the Back to the Future trilogy, James Bond’s 1963 Aston Martin DB5, Caractacus Potts’ Paragon Panther in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Austin Powers’ Jaguar E-Type Roadster from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and – regarded by many as the king of cool and iconic cars – The Tumbler, a self-build cross between a Lamborghini and a tank used by Batman.

Here are the iconic car quotes in detail
