Top 10 classic cars in music videos
So many pop and rock stars choose to feature classics in their videos. From pick-ups to supercars, here are our favorites
Classic cars and music
Cars have always been the ultimate music video prop. The picture above sums it up – Kylie in a De Tomaso Mangusta for Can't Get You Out Of My Head, though the video didn't quite make our top ten.
Let us know in the comments section which car-themed music video you like best. There are plenty to choose from!
Sheryl Crow, Ford GT40
Sheryl Crow's 2002 homage to Steve McQueen naturally features a Highland Green Ford Mustang, a Porsche 356 Speedster and more, as she recreates scenes from McQueen movies.
The surprise is that the video to Steve McQueen also includes a Ford GT40 towards the end of the video. In fact, it turns out that the GT40 is a good replica but the driver is none other than NASCAR legend Dale Earnhart Jr.
Jamiroquai, Ferrari 275 GTB
Oh, and don't forget White Knuckle Ride, which features petrolhead Jay Kay in a chase between a helicopter and a very sweet Porsche 911 Carrera.
Madness, Morris Minor
It’s easy to get carried away with the muscle cars and supercars of your typical car-themed music video, but few cars get such a starring role as this 1959 Morris Minor Tourer.
The ‘Maddiemobile’ features throughout the 1982 video for Driving in My Car, and at one stage the Minor drives past pop group Fun Boy Three trying to hitch a lift.
Spice Girls, Dodge Charger Daytona
Well, who'd have thought we'd have a Spice Girls video in here? But then there aren't many videos filmed with a Dodge Charger Daytona in the Mojave Desert, are there...
Even better, at the end of the video for Say You'll Be There there's a brief appearance by a rare Chevrolet Corvair Rampside pick-up truck!
Calvin Harris, Ferrari 512
Calvin Harris' 2012 video for We’ll be Coming Back also features an early Porsche 911 driven by fellow petrolhead Example, which makes it twice as good.
The Ferrari 512 looks fantastic though, and Calvin Harris admits the idea of the video was simply to ‘look cool’. Job done, thanks to the cars.
Jamiroquai, Lamborghini Diablo
With Jay driving the Diablo we’ve given it top billing, though all three cars receive equal amounts of screen time.
