The Most Coveted Car Models for Collectors

Classic cars have soul. They are as much works of art as they are functional machines. In fact, there are a handful of models that are the most coveted and have been sought after by collectors for decades. Let’s have a look at some of the most popular (and beautiful) in existence.

The 1966 Shelby Cobra

Who can possibly deny the sleek, sexy and sophisticated attraction offered by the 427 model? Besides its aesthetic appeal, the power-to weight ratio exhibited in this classic is alluring for anyone who has an insatiable taste for muscle cars.

The Jaguar E-Type (1961)

Any vehicle that is dubbed “The most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari himself must deserve some credit. In fact, this may indeed be an understatement. The 1961 Jaguar E-Type is the type of car that James Bond himself would envy. Boasting the trademark Jaguar style combined with a streamlined appearance, it is no surprise that Mr. Ferrari himself enamoured by this vehicle.

The 1964 Aston Martin DB5

Speaking of James Bond, this was his preferred car during his early career as a spy. It does indeed seem quite appropriate that the likes of Sean Connery sat behind the wheel of this elegant beast. With an appearance fit for royalty combined with a speed perfect for the racetrack, the DB5 combines the best of both worlds.

The 1957 Mercedes Gullwing

This lesser-known model of Mercedes has continually fetched impressive prices at countless auctions, and for good reason. At the time it was built, the Gullwing was the fastest production car in existence. Somehow seeming to capture the immortality of Hollywood’s golden years, this Mercedes is considered to represent the pinnacle of engineering and luxury.

Of course, different collectors will have naturally differing tastes. It is still an undeniable fact that even novice aficionados cannot deny the appeal of these stunning examples of art, tempered aggression and timeless style.
