Second up we have the Koenigsegg CCX. Another beautiful car that has one of the most amazing suicide door set up's I have ever seen. This model has a top speed on around 395 KPH which makes this auto feel like your taking off for a flight.

This next car is in my opinion one of the best cars ever made. This 2003 Ferrari Enzo is a 6 Litre V12 engine that produces 660 horse power. Only 400 ever built and this has relatively low milage also.

As many will already know the Bugatti Veyron was produced by the Volkswagon group to be the fastest street legal car ever made. The cost to build these cars was far more than they could sell them for but it was done to prove a point to what they could produce. Rumour has it if you drive this car as hard as it can go the tyres can actually melt.

Next up is a 1960 Rolls Royce Phantom. This model has a classy look with the black exterior and beige interior. Famous owners include the Queen and legendary Beatle John Lennon.

I had to do two Rolls Royces back to back this week as I have never actually seen this model before. It is a Rolls Royce V Sedanca Deville and there was only 7 ever built of this particular model. I love this design and the interior is outstanding for a car of it's age.

The next model on our list is a 1956 Porsche 356 A T1 Reutter Speedster. This model was actually named in our list of best car designs ever created on a previous blog post. This model is one of the best examples I have ever seen.

Next is the iconic 1967 Shelby Cobra. Once of the most sort after American cars ever made due to it's rarity, sheer performance and styling. This particular model is immaculately presented.

Heading over to something that is a little newer and that is the 2014 Lamborgini Aventador. I am a sucker for the matte black on black exterior/interior and the styling that is the Aventador. This is a high performance 4WD sports car that pretty much has every creature comfort imaginable.

Growing up the Lamborghini Countach was almost everyones favourite car. This 1989 model below looks like it has just rolled off the showroom floor. With only 20K miles and becoming more and more rare this is one car that will soon be snatched up in our opinion.

13 Designs That Were Ahead OF Their Time

Timeless is a word that is thrown around a little too easily in my opinion. These designs are in our honest opinion describe timeless to a tee.

 

73 Ferrari Dino 246GTS

The Dino range was named after Enzo Ferrari’s son and future heir to the Ferrari empire, Alfredino. Originally made to compete with other V6 race cars this engine is still regarded as being well ahead of it's time. Fast becoming a sort after model by collectors. 

Volkswagon Type 2

The Volkswagon Type 2 is the original hippie van. A lot of people including myself have long dreamt of chasing the sun in one of these reliable and easily serviced auto’s. A cult classic.

1961 Jaguar E-Type

The E-Type was made between ’61 and ’75 is said to be one of the greatest if not the greatest designed car  produced in the UK. Hard to argue.

1925 Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Phantom I Round Door Coupé

Can you imagine seeing something like this rolling down the street in the 1920’s! A period when people are buying ice out of a truck for refrigeration. Blows my mind.

63 Chevrolet Corvette

The futuristic Fastback with the split window finish. These cars are super valuable as they are quite rare plus one of the most sort after Chevrolet models ever made.

Mercedes Benz 600 Pullman

First produced in ’63 the Pullman fast became popular with royalty, rockstars and dictators. A few people that have owned one include; John Lennon, Hugh Hefner, Pablo Escobar and even the King (yes I am talking about Elvis.

1955 Porsche Speedster 356 (Pre-A)

What no 911 I hear you say? Well this speedster was a stripped down version for people that wanted to race but could not stomach the price for a fully blown Porsche. Only 1233 were made and now the speedsters are one of the most sort after vehicle’s by collectors.

250 GT Lusso Ferrari

Once of the most luxurious sports cars made of its era. Originally sold for $13,375, the GTL sold in 2010 for $400,000 and $500,000, and currently in 2015 values are approaching 5 times this figure

Volvo P1800

While some may argue that this sports model is on the ugly side, I could not disagree more. The P1800 is now a classic and fully original models are very much sort after.

1960 Aston DB4 GT Zagato

It was originally released in 1960 as a a DB4 GT model that was lightened and improved by the Zagato factory in Italy. Demand was not strong at the time so only 20 models were made. Prices now are well over 1 Million pounds for this model.

1955 Citroen DS

I had to include the Citroen DS. Designed by a French and Italian designer this model is consistently polled as one of the most influential car models of all time.

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Coupe

This gull wing designed masterpiece was the fastest production production car when it was released. With it’s low production numbers it is now one of the most sort after Mercedes Benz model of all time with prices ranging from 1-25 Million dollars.

Maserati Gran Turismo

While it is far too young to be a classic the GranTurismo in my opinion is the ultimate in design of cars that are currently being built. The V8 mixed with the 6 speed transmission and the tone you only get from a Maserati will make this a guaranteed classic.

10 Iconic Porsche Models

Why 10 model? Because every blog eventually does a top ten, that's essentially why.

Now before I get a message saying whats a boxster doing on the list I have taken everything into account. As in, what is the demand for each model, collect ability and what engineering feats the car was breaking at the time.

Feel free to click and share any photos that you think someone will like. 

 

1960 PORSCHE ABARTH 356B CARRERA GTL

The body for this model was made with aluminium over a steel frame to make it as light as possible. Timeless design that still does up to 144 Miles per hour. Not that you would want to push it anywhere near that speed as they are extremely rare.

 

1966 PORSCHE 911 (My personal favourite)

Classic styling and really the beginning of the legacy that is 911. Prices still remain consistently higher for all original models.

 

1974 PORSCHE CARRERA RS 3.0

The ultimate in dual purpose Porsches. Limited amounts made make this car highly collectable, one recently broke the million dollar mark at auction.

1974 PORSCHE 930 (911 TURBO)

An iconic model as it was the first 911 to have a turbo fitted to it. Was nicknamed the "Widowmaker" for it's lag in it's turbo  which had caught many out  (scary I know). Was the fastest mass produced car of it's time.

1987 PORSCHE 928 S4

Originally the 928 was designed to replace the 911 (did not quite work out that way). In 1987 they bumped up the engine to a 5 litre with twin cam heads which took it's horse power to 316HP.

1983 PORSCHE 911SC CABRIOLET

A chopped 911 is a beautiful sight. Well this was the year that feature kicked off.

2008 PORSCHE BOXSTER RS60 SPYDER

Arguably the best Boxster that Porsche has ever produced. Few would argue as these were made in limited quantities.

2011 PORSCHE 911 GT2

620 Hp. Yes that is 620.  Zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds; zero to 100 mph in 6.8 seconds (half a second slower than a McLaren F1); and zero to 125 mph in 9.8 seconds. This is what I imagine it would feel to take off into space.

2014 PORSCHE PANAMERA TURBO S

Launched to compete with other large luxury sedans (Audi, Mercedes and Maserati) the Panamera gives you space and luxury fittings coupled with serious sports car acceleration. 

2015 PORSCHE CAYENNE TURBO S

The top of the range as far as the Cayenne model goes. 570 Horse Power and as good interior I have seen in a four wheel drive this car is loved by drivers and soccer moms worldwide.
