Top 10 Halloween Cars

Here at Auto Trader, we love compiling a good list. Today we bring you a very bad list. A list of our favourite Halloween inspired cars – from the creepy to the downright terrifying.

10. Scary Smart Car

This little guy may not have the smartest costume but sometimes it’s the simplest things that work best. Genius!

9. Pinky and the brain

Looking like that weird brain villain, Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this bub wouldn’t need to beep to get us out of the way.

8. Coffin-mower

Not strictly a car but 10 points for effort goes to this kid’s coffin-mobile

7. Car vs Alien

We found Ridley Scotts’ Aliens scary enough when they were on legs but just imagine if they were motor powered!

6. Christine

No one wants to mess with Steven King’s evil-minded motor, Christine was way more than Arnie Cunningham bargained for when he bought this rather lovely looking Plymouth Fury – cue scary headlights.

5. Car Skeleton

If Gunther von Hagen made cars instead of frighteningly inappropriate anatomical exhibitions, this is probably what you’d get.

4. Ghost truck

Never mind the Ghost Train, that might have scared you when you were a child but it doesn’t have a patch on this terrifying truck!

3. The It car

Steven King inspires our fears again with this clown Beetle. We could never look at clowns the same way again after that Georgie scene in It.

2. Goldilocks car

Arguably the most frightening car you’ll never hope to see in real life. We reckon that Bear can just keep that car now, who’s going to ask him to give it back?!

1. Car Carnage

That’s a lot of effort they’ve gone to there, keeping that windscreen real clean.So this Zombie killer car had to top our list.

Wrong number

Ever since the first registration number was issued in the UK way back in 1904, car owners have paid daft sums of money to secure something tasty, to make their car stand out from the crowd.

While an expensive car doesn’t look quite right without a posh plate, when you’re driving a 15-year old Cavalier, spending a couple of hundred quid on a cheap registration to disguise its age seems rather pointless.
