Bruce Wayne's LamborghiniDoes your heartbeat quicken every time you hear "vroom vroom" in the movie theater? You're not alone. Many movie cars are just as iconic as the characters who drive them. So if you get a thrill with every peel out, epic jump, and adrenaline-fueled race, you're in for a treat with this list of the most badass movie cars of all time.

Bruce Wayne's Lamborghini.

Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, Batman, just loves driving the Lamborghini. In Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Wayne cruises around town in a Lamborghini Murcielago. For a clever bit of trivia, murcielago translates to "bat" in Spanish, meaning he drives a 'bat-mobile' both during the day and at night.

In The Dark Knight Rises, Wayne upgrades his Lambo to the Aventador. Lamborghini COO, Michael Lock, told The Hollywood Reporter that the movie had very specific instructions: the car has to be able to sit in the Batcave and "not look like a plain Jane."

At a $400,000 retail cost, Lamborghini pulled off this task with a sleek, cool car. And when Alfred can ask Wayne if he wants the Batpod, he responds with needing something a little more understated: "The Lamborghini, then. Much more subtle."

The DeLorean

One of the most well-known movie cars has to be The DeLorean from the Back to the Future trilogy. Besides the obvious cool feature that it can travel through time (you can't really beat that), the DeLorean had a pretty cool, futuristic design. In fact, it has gull wing doors (something that always ups the cool factor), a fiberglass chassis, and brushed stainless steel panels.

Take a note out of this badass car's playbook by using modern-looking materials to build your car. Don't mess around with chipped paint; rather, go straight for the edgy metal and glass look. And add gull wing doors. Nothing is cooler.

This car seems to have nine lives (we're almost to nine movies, right?) in The Fast & the Furious series. Dom and his father built the car together in the first movie, and it becomes his signature vehicle to help him win race after race and get out of some pretty crazy situations.

With a 900 horsepower engine, the car has a lot of power and is even capable of popping a wheelie. It's so badass that it beats out an oncoming train, survives being hit by a semi, and even comes out unscathed from a headfirst dive into a tunnel of explosives.

If you want to go as fast -- and furious -- as Dom, all parts of your car needs to be up to the task. Start with a powerful engine that can at least get close to hitting the nine-second quarter mile record. Plus, make sure your tires have ultra high-performance benefits -- and a sleek paint job is a must.

Whether you want to pretend you're in an epic race with Bullet, or fighting crime vigilante style with the Green Hornet, you need a car that's up for the task. Movie cars can be just as cool and kick just as much ass as the characters driving them. With today's technology, we can't wait to see what badass cars come next.
