The famed car football (or SocCar) game has played host to some iconic cars from movies. Here are the most famous movie cars in Rocket League.

When it comes to driving games, Rocket League is one of the most popular titles. As a result, there are many recognisable cars from movies due to promotion deals. Here are some of the coolest movie cars that players can equip themselves in Rocket League.
Bond’s Aston Martin
The iconic DB5 of Britain’s most beloved secret agent James Bond has been available many times in Rocket League. It was most recently available alongside the Valhalla in the leadup to the new 007 movie No Time To Die.
Unfortunately, Bond never got to drive the Valhalla. A shame really, so Rocket League players can make up for it. Other Bond cars like the Aston Martin DBS from Casino Royale, the DB10 from Spectre and the Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me are not in the game though.
We’d love to see them added, as well as perhaps some iconic Bond villain cars. The Jaguar XKR from Die Another Day and the Jaguar C-X75 from Spectre for example. But when it comes to actual cars Bond has driven, the DB5 is the only one but it’s certainly the only one any Bond fan playing Rocket League will ever need.
Everyone has a favourite Batman, whether it be Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck or Robert Pattinson. Furthermore, everyone has a favourite Batman film whether it be Batman 1989, The Dark Knight, Zack Snyder’s Justice League or The Batman. None of us are saying George Clooney and Batman & Robin, are we?
Another element of the Batman movies is the Batmobile. Bruce Wayne’s vehicle of choice to rush around the streets of Gotham battling his many supervillains. Rocket League has every version from the four separate movie series. Pick your favourite.
When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice released in 2016, Psyonix added the new Batmobile along with the ones from the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan-directed movies. Then for 2022, the Batmobile from The Batman was available in Rocket League. For any Batman fan, no matter which version they love the most, Rocket League has the Batmobile for them.
DeLorean Time Machine
The DeLorean from the Back To The Future movies is an icon of movie cars. Marty McFly and Doc Brown take this gullwing-doored time machine to 88mph and can go to any point in time, whether it be 1955, 1985 or 2015.
On the day the DeLorean arrived in 2015, Rocket League added it to the game. Although unfortunately, unlike the car from the movie, it cannot hover. A small trade off however, since the boost sound is so unmistakably Back to the Future-ish, and the tail lights illuminate when accelerating.
When you’re playing Rocket League, and like Ghostbusters, which car ya gonna pick? The Ecto-1! The Ghostbusters movies directed by Ivan Reitman featured a converted hearse for the four Ghostbusters to drive. It’s an unmistakable sight for any movie-goer.
Added in 2019 even when there was no Ghostbusters movie coming out, as part of the Radical Summer DLC. It was made available again in the leadup to the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie, so for all fans of the Ghostbusters movies, keep an eye out if it’s ever made available again.
Fast & Furious Crew Cars
A racing fan will undoubtedly know of the Fast & Furious franchise. Spanning over 20 years and nine main series movies and a spinoff, and still going strong. It has delivered some iconic cars over the years, and three of them have been available at various times in Rocket League.
Players can drive the Dodge Charger driven by Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto. They can also drive Tyrese Gibson’s character Roman Pearce’s Pontiac Fiero, and the Nissan Skyline GTR driven by Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner. Although there’s nothing of Han’s Mazda RX-7 or the Toyota Supra from O’Conner.
To get the most authentic experience, we recommend putting the Tokyo Drift music on in the background whilst pressing the powerslide button.
Okay yes, not technically a movie car, but we couldn’t pass this one up. Knight Rider ran from 1982 to 1986, and it involved David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a man who cheats death and given a new identity. In return, he works for the Foundation for Law And Government as a private crime fighter.
He’s partnered up with KITT (or the Knight Industries Two Thousand), an AI who takes the form of a heavily converted Pontiac TransAm. KITT was a car that could jump and boost, so not too far removed from the type of driving that is so prevalent in Rocket League. Players can also attach a topper onto KITT of the iconic gullwing steering wheel, and it turns in the direction the players are turning to.
Jurassic Park Jeep
Fans of the dinosaur-infested Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies can use the Jeep Wrangler from those movies. Workers at the park will typically be pitifully attempting to outrun a velociraptor with this car over the rough terrain, and surprisingly they often do!
The Wrangler was added when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was coming out in 2018. With the new Jurassic World Dominion out now, maybe it will be re-added to Rocket League some time soon. Players need not worry as they won’t have to outrun any dinosaurs, but there is a goal effect that can be used which has a dinosaur coming out of the goal after scoring.
