TV's Fastest and Furiousest
In honor of the sixth installment of "Fast & Furious" (the seventh, if you count Roger Corman's "The Fast and the Furious," which we do), we are presenting these iconic TV automobiles with the coveted General Lee Trophy for Vehicular Excellence. Named, of course, for the hardest working car in television:
General Lee, '69 Dodge Charger
See General Lee in action on "The Dukes of Hazzard":
Reports differ, but anywhere from 250 to 320 different cars were used to film the various leaps that filled the "Dukes of Hazzard" show between shots of Daisy Duke's shorts. YEE-HAW!
BEST SUPERHERO CAR: "Batman's" Batmobile
This is the clear winner, due in no small part to the mind-numbing array of accessories, including a Batphone Remote Batcomputer, a Bat Photoscope, an Antenna Activator, a Voice Control Batmobile Relay Unit, and the Emergency Bat-turn Lever (which released twin 10-foot parachutes to enable quick 180-degree turns) — all of which, except for the last one, your cell phone can double for.
