Deeply questionable CGI. Continuity errors. Unrealistic stunts. These are the things that make automotive enthusiasts stand up in the middle of movies and shake their fists uncontrollably at the screen, or walk out. These ten movie blunders are the worst of the worst, as chosen by Jalopnik readers.
10.) The Fast And The Furious, Toyota Supra 2JZ Reaction
Dom’s team wasn’t pleased at all when Spilner showed up with a junkyard MKIV Supra. Maybe they forgot that Supras came with highly valuable and mod-able 2JZs. Let’s try and give them benefit of the doubt.
At least Jesse quickly comes to his senses with the “this thing will decimate all with about $15,000 of overnight parts from Japan” line.

9.) Dallas Buyers Club Lamborghini Aventador Poster
Dallas Buyers Club is a movie set right smack in the middle of the 1980s. Now I’m not 100 percent sure, but I’m about 99 percent positive that no one in the ‘80s had any remote clue of the ever possible existence of the Lamborghini Aventador.
Did I miss that part in the movie when Ron Woodruff travels 30 years into the future and scoops up one of these posters?

8.) Dukes Of Hazzard Jump
Getting air in a car can be fun, when the car isn’t a 40-year-old American muscle car loaded with passengers, flying through the air at what appears to be five stories off the ground. Then it’s just tragic.
Unless of course you’re “just’a good ol’ boys. Never meanin’ no harm.” Then you apparently have nothing to worry about.

7.) Drive Reverse Gearing
It doesn’t matter how handsome Ryan Gosling is, he does not have the ability to drive highway speeds in reverse. How many backwards gears did that Mustang have? Sorry, no.
Great car control though!

6.) Torque Bike Duel
Wait, they’re fighting? It looked these two were performing a ballet on bikes.

5.) Vanishing Point, Challenger Becomes A Camaro
At least there’s a somewhat reasonable explanation behind this movie blunder. Reader magnum1978 can explain.
The production did not own the Challengers. Chrysler did. Chrysler was not a fan of the movie that had been made. It was meant to be great marketing for the new E-Body. It turned out to be a polarizing ‘70s antihero movie (Must not have read the script before offering support).
The company took the cars back as they always intended to. So Camaro eats it over a new Challenger.

4.) Casino Royale Rollover
There’s no chance an emergency accident avoidance maneuver like the one 007 pulls in this scene would cause this sports car to roll like it does. He didn’t even dig a wheel into the dirt!
