An automobile, essentially a something that takes you from point A to point B without much human effort. While this may be the classic definition, with zero emotions, take the case, when you are attached to your car, more than anything. Who wouldn't like to own and drive a car, that can turn more heads than a beautiful girl? While many of the modern cars fall in the same category, there was a time when much of the emphasis was given on the looks of the car instead of all the modernity and technologies.
Hence, we try to bring you a list of top 10 beautiful looking classic cars, that defines cool and are worth buying. This list is based on our assessment and can vary from person to person. Also, the list is in no particular order.
Here are 10 Classic Cars that define cool.
1969 Chevrolet Camaro
Remember the movie Transformers? Remember the Bumblebee, which changed into a roaring and beautiful Yellow Car? Well, that car was a Chevrolet Camaro and it took the breath away from us. This was pretty much the first encounter of us Indians with this gorgeous looking machine, but Chevy Camaro is not new to the world. Infact, much like her new age siblings, the 1969 Camaro was one of the best looking muscle car. Seeing those white stripes on a blue Z28 just strikes us as quintessentially cool.
1966 Lamborghini Miura
50 years ago, Ferraris used to dominate the world of Motorsports and Supercars. Those red Italian beauties were pretty much the object of desire. And then came the Lamborghini! Not only did Lamborghini managed to toss the dominance of Ferrari, they are still the number one choice of auto enthusiast, and purely for one reason, the looks. But it all started after Lamborghini launched the Miura, the car with looks, that can even give complex to a rocket. The 1966 Lamborghini Miura is one the most beautiful classic car in our list, defining the new cool.
1963 Corvette Stingray
Corvettes are not essentially the muscle cars, but they can give complex to many, if looks are taken in consideration. The American brand was already making good looking cars till 1963 and then came the Stingray, a car so stylish and aerodynamic, it made the previous Corvettes, less desirable. The current generation Corvette Stingray is beautiful, no doubt, but it can't beat the sheer road presence of the 1963 Corvette Stingray.
1967 Chevrolet Impala
If you are a big fan of American TV series, you might have stumbled upon a series called Supernatural. The series features Dean Winchester as its protagonist and he drives an all black 1967 Chevrolet Impala. The big buffy car defines the character of the driver and is hard to ignore. The car represents the quintessential love of the Americans for the muscle cars. But it also left us desiring more of the muscle cars. Unfortunately, the Impala is out of production now and only a few of them restored in such condition can be found.
1969 Ferrari Dino 246 GT
Ferrari lovers, don't be angry over listing a Lambo here, as we have a Ferrari gracing the list too. Ferrari has a long standing history of manufacturing some of the most exotic and desirable cars. But one of them is particularly desirable. While everyone was focussed on making rigid and straight line muscle cars, Ferrari came up with 1969 Dino 246 GT, a car having soft lines. The car was more curvacious than an Italian pretty girl herself.
1964 Aston Martin DB5
If James Bond is driving something, it ought to be cool enough, because whatever Bond does, does in style! There is a very interesting story behind the collaboration of Bond and Martin. Ian Fleming, the Bond creator gave him a Bentley Blower in the initial novels, which, a reader suggested should be replaced by a DB3. While filming for the first movie, the director decided to go for a more classy DB5 and soon it was a rage among the enthusiasts. But the 1964 DB5 used in Goldfinger, is pretty much the machine you would like to keep in your garage.
1969 Mustang Boss 429
Yes, another muscle car in the list. But, we bet, this is not just another Muscle car! The engine of the 1969 Mustang Boss 429 was so freakishly big, they have to change the Mustang's body design to accommodate it, the reason enough to roll down the windows and listen to that noise as you were cruising around? But how big was this engine? The engine was so big that Mustang couldn't even house an air conditioning unit due to its size.
1957 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing
We bet, if we ask you, which is the most beautiful car in today's time, most of us will say, Mercedes SLS AMG Gullwings. That long engine hood, those doors, which opens like gull wings and the sound it makes. But do you, this is not the first time gull wings were used in a car? Infact, SLS AMG is the successor of the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. Apart from the doors, which can pretty much be the only reason, this is one of the coolest cars to ever hit the pavement, the 300SL was also the fastest production car at the time.
1961 Jaguar E-Type
You believe Ferraris are the most beautiful cars in the world? What if, the Ferrari's creator thinks otherwise and say about a car that it is “the most beautiful car ever made”? Yes, Enzo Ferrari praised Jaguar E-Type as the most beautiful car ever made, and so do we go by his words. Built in 1961, Jaguar E-Type garnered praise like no other car of its era did. One look to the car and you can know why we are saying this? Factually speaking, Jaguar E-Type is the most restored classic car ever!
1966 Shelby 427 Cobra
To start with, we say, anything related to Carroll Shelby is immediately worth your time. Shelbys were known for their insane power-to-weight ratio and the looks to kill for. But this particular 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra Super Snake was even more interesting, as it fetched $ 5.5 million. The roadster was super epic, with those dual white lines, on the striking shining blue paint. And the use of tubular pipes as the seat rest, made it even more aggressive.
