The Cullen Cars

Two of my three brothers are obsessed—and I mean that in the literal, clinical sense—with automotive vehicles. This comes in very convenient when I need to know what kind of car one of my characters is driving. I simply call Jacob or Paul and ask, "What's the fastest and most powerful four-door sedan out there?" and then whichever one I'm speaking to will immediately rattle off a long, specific description of the car I want, including the price, the horsepower, the time it takes to get from zero to sixty, and any new body stylings that might be on the way. They will also probably email me a picture within minutes. (And the insane part is that if I ask the other brother the same question, he'll give me the exact same answer, though possibly a different picture.)

So, in honor of Paul and Jacob, I'm including the specific makes and models of the cars driven by the Cullens (and a link to an approximation), because I know it would kill them if someone thought my vampires were driving lesser cars.

[Edit: the cars featured on this page are those which are in the books (or at least as close to them as we can find); the cars in the movie may be different in many cases — we are aware of this but still have decided to feature only the cars that are mentioned in the books]
[Edit #2: SPOILER ALERT! As this page contains cars from other books in the saga besides
Twilight, there are a few possible spoilers included.

First, though, Bella's truck, which I picked out all by myself (a 1953 Chevrolet Pickup Truck):

Edward's Volvo, the silver S60R (and I've been assured that the "R" part is essential):

Rosalie's BMW M3 convertible:

Carlisle's Mercedes S55 AMG:

Emmett's Jeep Wrangler (the closest I could find):

And, the car that got cut in the editing process. This is Edward's "special occasion" car, and the one he used to take Bella to the Prom. The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish: (Edit: although the Vanquish was cut from Twilight, it makes a special guest appearance in Breaking Dawn)

***Update*** 2007
Obviously, we needed to add at least two more cars to the list which were crucial in New Moon. Here are Jacob's Volkswagen Rabbit and Alice's Porsche 911 Turbo:

***Update*** Edit: As I have been reminded in many (literally several hundred) emails, we never posted the motorcycles after New Moon. I apologize for the delay, but I suppose they are better late than never. So, here is Jacob and Bella's Harley Sprint and Honda motorcycles (and we also included Edward's Ducati which he purchased later):

Bella's Honda

Edward's Ducati

***Update*** August 2008
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS! With the recent release of Breaking Dawn, it has once again become necessary to add some new cars. Here are two pictures and a video of the Mercedes S600 Guard (the "Guardian" in BD is a fictitious car which is one step up from the Guard).

And, of course, Bella's 'after' car, a Ferrari F430:
