Classic Cars from around the world!

The world has seen some amazing classic cars, different countries bring their own ideas and designs which means that there are plenty of beautiful and powerful classic cars from all over the world.

Jaguar E-Type

The E-Type just oozes style, standing out from the crowd at its launch at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 1961. It stole the show with many regarding the original Coupé and Roadster models as perfect from every angle. It also helped that Enzo Ferrari described the Jaguar as the most beautiful car in the world.

Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder

The 250 GT was primarily a sports racing car however it did start a line of incredibly desirable road going models. Among the 250 GT series are the California convertibles which are the most sought after variants with the current value of the car coming to a total of £14 million.

Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang is the staple of American muscle, the Mustang was the best-selling car of its time, Ford projected to sell 100,000 in the first year and managed to reach 22,000 units sold in the first day; then just under 2 years they had made more than 1 million sales.

BMW 507

Although the 507 was a disappointment for BMW and was the car that almost sent them to bankruptcy it has now become a well-known legend in the car industry, initially made to break the US market the 507 seemed to be a success in the making however costs meant the 507 couldn’t compete with other rivals and thus only 252 were built. However, because of the low numbers of cars built it has now become a rare gem; the highest price so far coming from the 507 owned from new by John Surtees former F1 winner with a price tag of £2 million.

Citroen DS

This isn’t the fastest or the most exclusive car here, however it does have classical French styling and clever engineering, even the DS name is a play on the French word for Goddess (déesse) and who can argue with a Goddess. The DS was revealed at the Paris Motor Show in 1955 and it wowed the crowds, so much so that Citroen took nearly 20,000 on its first day on display.

Toyota 2000GT

The 2000GT was a limited production, hardtop coupé grand tourer designed by Toyota in collaboration with Yamaha. The 2000GT revolutionised the automotive world’s view on Japan who were viewed for practical and stodgy cars but managed to create an incredibly sleek, high-performance machine that managed to show that they can rival the likes of other manufacturers in Europe.

Volvo Amazon

When introduced the car was named Amason deriving from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology the Amazons. In 1959 Volvo became the world’s first manufacturer to provide front seat belts as standard equipment by providing them on all Amazon models, including the export models and later becoming the first car ever featuring three-point seat belts as standard equipment.
