3 Classic Cars You Will Wish You Owned Personally

By Julius Choudhury

There is something so amazing about classic cars that keep them alive in our hearts and minds. Maybe it's the romance of cars that didn’t have electronics to keep them on the road and it was just about the pure art of driving. It was man and machine, bound together and trusting each other to go to the edge of performance but never over it. Classic cars were also, never quite as obsessed with downforce as modern cars seem to be. They were more so about cutting through the air, not capturing it to use it in pushing the car down. Sleek, curvy, fashionable, they still look cool even to this day. If you drove into a high French restaurant and parked your Jaguar E-Type alongside a Bugatti Veyron, chances are you would get just as many people crowding around you to take a closer look.

Jaguar D-Type

The original Le Mans monster. This car is incredibly sleek and has perhaps the best classic car design of all time. It was designed to be slippery and sleek, through the air at a top speed of around 172 mph. Considering that this was made in the late 50s, this is quite an incredible achievement for that era of technology. But how much is it worth nowadays? At the moment it looks like £5.5 million, which is a staggering $7.32 million. That’s if you can find an original, and perhaps only 50 or so still remain. It's the best example of Jaguar, the brand that espoused grace and pace.

Ferrari GTO

If you saw this car in the flesh, you would make sure you have an imprint of it etched into your mind. The sheer beauty of this classic car is something you have to witness in person. The curves, lines, proportions, and little pieces that make this car unique, are a timeless style. Thankfully, there are still trusted companies that specialize in servicing Ferraris, Maseratis, and UK luxury vehicles. So if you are thinking of buying such a machine, you need not worry that you won’t be able to care for it. The value of your car will not go down if you maintain it with the services of a classic car garage and servicing company. But why the GTO? Well, it was the first car that Ferrari really became known for as it won many races, often pitting itself against the Jaguar D-types.

Ford GT-40

Just 40 inches tall, the Ford GT-40 represented a change in the car world. It has become a classic car that has perhaps grossed the most ever at auction. The story is also magnificent, enough to be told by Hollywood just recently. The actual shape of the car was taken from a British car company called Lola, which is still operational today. The engine is pure American naturally-aspirated V8. The sleek shape and power of the car drove it to over 200mph on the Le Mans Mulsanne Straight.

Of course, you would love to own any of these cars. The price tag alone shows how loved they are. Their sleek bodies and amazing engineering is unlike any modern car we have today.
