As the first I have it easy, here the old Batmobile, probably available from more than 30 manufacturers (who knows if they all paid royalties).

Would this include different paint jobs on the same car as \"different\"?

Ah, no - that would be too easy - got to be a car from a different car! Otherwise we could just do Batman cars...

Here a rendition of the Golden James Bond\'s DB5 from a Corgi Catalogue:

By the way, why was the first model golden, I thought it was always silver in the movie?

It was always silver in the two films it appeared in (Goldfinger and Thunderball). However, Corgi\'s story was that when the model was painted silver, it looked like it hadn\'t been painted at all, so they did it in gold instead (as it was a tie-in with GOLDfinger). When they issued the second version in 1968, this was a completely new casting (the first one was modified from the casting used to make the earlier Aston Martin DB4) and presumably paint composition had advanced enough that they now had a decent metallic silver to use as this second version was always silver as, indeed, was the third, larger version that was issued in 1/36 scale.

Another problem might have been that the first version has the grille, front headlights and bumpers moulded into the body. At the time, Corgi\'s were all designed like this and had these details picked out in silver paint, so if the car was finished in silver, they would not have been able to do this. The second and third versions have plastic grilles and bumpers - but these are usually plated in gold in any case!

Here is Corgi\'s model of the Toyota 2000GT convertible driven by Aki (Akiko Wakabayashi) in You Only Live Twice.

I am not sure if this qualifies. From the BBC TV Series \"The House of Elliot.  The 1920 Roll Royce that appeared in the show. Made in 1991 by Lledo it is representive of the Vehicles used in the Series.

I have been working in the film industry for over 35 years and still going strong.  This is the only movie vehicle I have.  The Harry Potter Knight Bus.

Not sure if this would qualify as film cars but here we go anyway .  Johnny Lightning set of twelve cars decorated for classic horror films from Universal Studios.
