10 cars from Tarantino moviesBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/10-cars-from-tarantino-movies
Quentin Tarantino has always been selective in terms of choosing actors for the best roles in his films. The same can be said about the choice of cars. In anticipation of the release of a new film from Quentin, we offer you a selection of the best cars involved in his films ...
1. Cadillac DeVille
Tarantino's debut film, Reservoir Dogs, opens this collection with the debut 1966 Cadillac that Tarantino drove around in the film. This car was so fond of the actor that later moved to his garage. By the way, it is this car that we will see in the new, latest Tarantino film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
2. Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
The owner of this car was none other than Quentin Tarantino himself. He brought this car to the set for the filming of the movie Pulp Fiction. Remember how Vincent Vega was worried about the scratch on his red convertible? Perhaps the secret of such a brilliant performance by the actor lay in who was her real owner.
3. Acura NSX
This car also appeared in Pulp Fiction scenes. This Acura was driven by Mr. Wolfe. This model looks really very impressive and worthy of becoming the "star" of Tarantino films, because its appearance to this day stands out from a number of other cars, and then it made a splash!
4. Honda Civic SL
This 1980 Civic managed to get into three Quentin Tarantino films at once! In "Pulp Fiction" it is smashed by Bruce Willis, in "Jackie Brown" the main character owns this car, and in "Kill Bill" Honda modestly stands in the parking lot in scenes at the bar. The secret of such a “hot love” of the director for this car is simple: it was he who was his first personal car.
5. Mercury Cougar XR-7
This coupe fits perfectly into the "heavy" picture of the world-famous horror film "From Dusk Till Dawn". And although Quentin Tarantino was not the director of this film, his contribution was quite large. It seems that this car could not replace any other, because it perfectly suited the main characters - the Gekko brothers, who are escaping to Mexico with a hostage.
6. Volkswagen Karman Ghia
It was on this car in 1973 that Uma Thurman, the main character of the movie Kill Bill, cruised. The actress did not feel very confident driving this old Volkswagen, which eventually led to a serious accident and even more serious injuries. The choice of this car for Quentin Tarantino, again, was not accidental. It was on it that his father rode at one time.
7. Chevrolet C-2500 Crew Cab Silverado
This bright yellow pickup truck was remembered by everyone from the same movie "Kill Bill". "Pussy wagon", which Uma Thurman stole in the parking lot of the clinic, having dealt with its owner before that, later also took part in the filming of Lady Gaga's video.
8. De Tomaso Mangusta
This glorious 1969 car made a brief appearance in The Bill and was Bill's own car.
9. Dodge Challenger
The star of Tarantino's not most successful film "Death Proof" in 1970. The aggressive look of the car fits well into the overall picture of the plot. Especially considering that this film is more about machines than about people.
