More often than not, the protagonist’s car in a movie can easily turn into an iconic ride, but in the case of The Fast and the Furious, Paul Walker’s character, Brian, 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse didn’t quite turn iconic for reasons most car lovers know. Not that 4G63 is any bad, but seriously, a front wheel drive machine can be hardly called a sport car for some.

For the record, the car is considered as the first anthropomorphic star, though it may not be the first notable car star (we think Chitty Chitty Bang Bang should have that honor).
