Many classic cars are as beautiful now as they were when they were made years ago, due to detailed manufacturing and the luck of the models being kept in good condition by their owners. Undoubtedly many of us would be running for classic car insurance if we could get our hands on one of what we believe are the five sexiest classic cars in existence; but then again this might make them overall less desirable. So what are these five illustrious vehicles?
Aston Martin DB5
At the best of times Aston Martin’s are believed to be among the sleekest of supercars, but the DB5 is widely regarded as the best of the lot . This model was produced between 1963 and 1965 and was made as an improvement on the previous DB4. The Aston Martin DB5 was soon to become a movie star, featuring in James Bond films including Goldfinger, Tomorrow Never Dies, and Casino Royale. Any die-hard classic car fan would love to have the DB5 in their personal collection, and for many having even a model of it would do.
March 1966 saw the creation of the one millionth Mustang, so clearly they were popular before then, but the reputation in this year was second to none. Power and performance were recognised as the Mustang’s highlights, with its looks and status highly important too. This Ford was sexy because it was cool; and everyone who owned one wanted to be keeping up appearances of being young and cool; this is why we still love this awesome car.
The Chevrolet Camaro has to be on this list as it was a popular rival of the Mustang in the pony car and muscle car category. A Camaro was described to journalists as “a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs” which is what they hoped to do in the market. This Chevrolet is a classic American car with a characteristic square body and a lot of oomph.
This is the most commonly known Bugatti, but one version of the 57S is incredibly rare. There were only ever 17 of the Bugatti 57S Atalante ever made which makes this car one of the most desirable classic cars to own. However, one of these 17 made headlines in 2009 when it was found well preserved in a lock up garage belonging to deceased Dr. Harold Carr near Newcastle, which then became one of the most highly valued cars ever.
We couldn’t neglect to include the Jaguar E-Type which was voted the most beautiful car of all time on the Telegraph. This sports car was produced in the 1960s and early 1970s, and certainly remains a source of inspiration for classic looking cars today. It has exquisite curves and a lustrous body; enough to make any car enthusiast drool with jealousy. But what is the most proud aspect of this car for us? It’s a pure British beauty.
