Car enthusiasts love highlighting "classic cars," though not everyone can agree on which cars fall into this renowned category.
A millennial may be confused by someone who loves the 1969 Shelby Cobra while someone familiar with cars from the 60’s will be ecstatic to talk about it. Classic cars are where it all started, from the huge engined muscle cars to the first Italian supercars. In today’s article we’re going to take a look at a few of our favorite classic cars!
Let’s start with the oldest, the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing. When this stunner made its debut, it was the fastest production car available at the time. The gull wing doors made this car an instant classic and one whose popularity has stood the test of time.
You can’t talk about classic cars without mentioning the muscle cars of the 60’s. This was a time when muscle cars were all the rage and car manufacturers were in a heated competition to construct the speediest, loudest, and best driving muscle car out there. The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, 1969 Dodge Charger, and the 1969 Ford Mustang were the ones that ruled. All were outfitted with a massive engine, produced a staggering amount power and each had their own exclusive styling. If you ask a car buff what their favorite classic car is, there’s a good chance you’ll hear them answer with one of these three autos.
Italian car makers Ferrari and Lamborghini have been fierce rivals for decades. Two of their contemporary supercars are the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari LaFerrari, but what got these automakers to where they are now? For Lamborghini, it was the 1966 Miura. Its sporty styling and absurd top speed (for the time) made Lamborghini a real super car contender. Ferrari got its establish from the Dino 246 GT. Its clean look, classic cherry red paint, and iconic Ferrari emblem put Ferrari on the map.
