The flying Ford Anglia used in filming for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Arthur Weasley owned a Ford Anglia that he had subsequently enchanted; consequently, the vehicle can fly, become invisible, and carry the entire Weasley family in spite of its formerly non-enchanted interior dimensions, among other abilities. The car is borrowed by Fred, George and Ron, who use it to rescue Harry from the Dursleys' house. Ron and Harry steal the car in order to return to Hogwarts after the gate to Platform 9¾ is sealed by Dobby. After they arrive at school, landing in the Whomping Willow, the car throws out Harry, Ron, and their luggage, then flees into the Forbidden Forest, ignoring Ron's pleas for it to come back. Mr Weasley is soon put under inquiry at the Ministry of Magic, because seven Muggles saw the car flying across the countryside, and nearly loses his job.

The car reappears when Harry and Ron visit Aragog in the forest: when the great spider's colony of acromantula attempt to devour Harry and Ron, the car attacks the spiders and carries the boys to safety. The car does not return to the Weasleys despite saving Ron and Harry, choosing instead to remain on its own. The car's current condition is undisclosed; Ron had commented that the enchanted vehicle had become "wild" and thus operated autonomously, like a literal wild animal. In theory, it may still exist in the time of the character's children.

The 1962 Ford Anglia used in the film was acquired by Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, and is currently displayed in the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.
