Research companies are an endless source of fodder for our articles, and this latest research finding is sure to cause some debate. It comes courtesy of Hyundai, which has just done some product placement in Marvel's latest superhero flick, Ant-Man and The Wasp.

To draw some attention to the use of its new Veloster, KONA and Santa Fe models in the movie, Hyundai commissioned a research company to determine the British public's opinion on the greatest movie cars of all-time.

The sampling of 2000 people is perhaps not as statistically significant as we'd ideally like, and it was all done in one country, but it did produce an interesting list, with a few we wouldn't have chosen, and quite a few we figured would have rated a mention but didn't.

That said, here's the list, complete with links to all the logical places where you can get more information.

I like a lot of them but not all of them.
JerryDobson
Yeah, a UK poll. So it's not surprising then that the iconic 1968 Mustang fastback in Bullitt came in at 10. Below Herbie the love bug. It should at least have been right there with the Aston Martin.

No General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard proves that this list is total BS
