Uber Eats customers will soon be treated to deliveries via the Batmobile, an Aston Martin DB5 and the Ecto-1 car from Ghostbusters.
The special deliveries are in celebration of KFC’s new Zinger Popcorn Bucket- the perfect popcorn accompaniment to a night of blockbuster cinema in the comfort of your own home.
Customers who order the delicious new offering from KFC on the Uber Eats app – made with 100% chicken breast and available for just £7.99 – will be in with a chance of having one of the world’s most famous movie cars roll up into their neighbourhood.
But instead of Batman, a Ghostbuster or James Bond, the cars will contain customers’ tasty KFC orders, with contact-free delivery from an Uber Eats courier.
It comes as data* from Uber Eats reveals that Brits consider James Bond’s iconic DB5, which has featured in seven movies to date, to be the ultimate movie car, with 27% of the vote in a nationwide poll – beating The Delorean from Back To The Future and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Another car from the franchise – the Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me – made the top five, while Herbie the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle came in at number four. Cars from Tim Burton and Chistopher Nolan’s Batman movies, the 1948 Ford Deluxe (more commonly known as ‘Greased Lightning’) and the Minis in The Italian Job also ranked highly in the top 40.
According to the research, the ultimate film car chase includes near misses, driving on the wrong side of the road and lots of crashes, with more than a quarter of respondents voting that police cars are an essential ingredient and 23% saying they love an explosion.
A massive seven in 10 Brits see cars as an integral part of cinema history, and when asked which car chase they considered to be the greatest of all time, respondents voted for The Italian Job as number one, followed by Bullitt and The Fast and The Furious.
The study also saw Steve McQueen, Sean Connery and Daniel Craig named the biggest icons behind the wheel, while more than a third said they’d love to own a car from a film if they had the money, with Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 and the Ford Mustang GT Fastback the most desirable.
Unlike in the movies, the special delivery cars will follow all appropriate speed limits, but still carry out deliveries within Uber Eats’ 30 minute time frame from the moment the order is placed.
To be eligible for a movie car delivery, customers in London need to order the new menu item on Monday 4th October.
