'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' – Red and Yellow Car

Sold for: $505,000

"Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" was a 1968 children's musical based on the Ian Fleming novel of the same name. Fleming was the author of the James Bond novels, and while the movie had nothing to do with that franchise, it featured a red and yellow car that could fly and float like a Bond car.

According to an Associated Press report, one of the cars used in the movie was sold for $505,000 in 2007 to Ralph Spencer of Jacksonville, Fla. The buyer was already the proud owner of a 1966 Batmobile.
