Do you remember the last time you had to sit through a gruelling hour and a half of bad cinema just because it was a movie about cars? Gearheads are often denied the simple pleasures of a good story and compelling performances. Yet, there are tales of glorious cars and legendary drivers littered throughout the history of motorsport. Following are tales of ambition, passion and tragedy, which artfully demonstrate the love of man and machine.

Jason Statham plays the protagonist, a brutally punctual driver who will transport anything, no questions asked. That is, until he finally breaks one of his own rules and opens his trunk. The Transporter relies on action scenes more than a plot to impress you. Some of the stunts are highly imaginative and outlandish. But once you take off the Men In Black sunglasses and get over the Hollywood-ness of the action, Corey Yuen’s direction and Statham’s self-executed stunts and gravelly British accent stand out. In the movie, Statham’s E38 BMW 7 Series has a manual transmission. It’s a one-off, since the V12-powered 750i was sold exclusively with an automatic.
