We’ve all owned cars comparable to the Fiat Punto, but some of us have much bigger ambitions. With that in mind, here is a list of the top 10 most desirable cars on our planet today.
1948 Tucker Torpedo
The 1948 Tucker Torpedo really is a sight for sore eyes. Unfortunately only 51 of these were ever made, so when they do appear at auctions, buyers generally pay well over £1,000,000 for the pleasure of owning one.
Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB
By far the most attractive car ever produced by this manufacturer, the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB will set you back nearly £4,000,000, so admittedly it’s not for everyone, but owners claim that the smooth ride and excellent handling rivals the best of current engineering. Although this model might be slightly out of most peoples price ranges, you can almost always find great alternatives from Lancaster Ferrari dealers.
More of a racing car than a road car, the Ford GT40 also has been known to sell for over £4,000,000 at auction. Winning many titles during its 1966 heyday, this car faded into obscurity somewhat in later years.
Aston Martin DB5
As fans of this manufacturer will know, the Aston Martin DB5 is a seriously hot piece of kit. Built in the mid 1960s with a respectable 282 horsepower engine and a top speed of around 140 mph, it’s easy to see why original models in good condition have been known to sell at auction for around £2,000,000.
Perhaps one of the most easily recognisable cars ever produced by the German carmaker, the BMW M1 was one of the first true supercars ever to be mass produced for the general public. Although only 500 models were eventually made available, you seemed to see them everywhere during the late 1970s in London.
Voted as the coolest car of the 1980’s, the Delorean DMC-12 has held its value considerably better than some other models released at the time. Sadly, regardless of what the Doc says, the standard editions do not come with pre-installed flux capacitors.
With a rumbling V12 engine, the Jaguar E-type has been a much sought after vehicle ever since it was first released in the 1960s. Luckily, over 70,000 E-types were sold, so finding a good quality model isn’t that difficult, even today.
With a design not so dissimilar from the BMW M1, the Lamborghini Countach is still as popular today as it ever was. With scissor doors and a wedge shaped interior, this is always a top choice amongst those who are going through a midlife crisis (only joking!)
Nissan Skyline GTR
Yes it’s true that you can pick these up from almost anywhere these days, but the Nissan Skyline is still a pretty impressive and desirable car. First released in 1989, it took awhile for consumers to jump on the bandwagon, but jump they did. If you know where you look, these models can usually be obtained for less than £30,000.
If you’re really looking for something truly special and money is no object, the Lamborghini Miura should definitely be at the top of your list. As only around 700 models were produced you can expect to pay anywhere between £3,000,000 and £7,000,000 depending on how well it’s been looked after.
So there you have it my friends. That was the 10 most highly sought after cars in the world. Although we might now be able to afford them, we can dream can’t we.
