Historic Sports Cars

-

Nearly everyone has a fantasy that includes an extraordinary car! Historic sports cars exemplify the pinnacle of driving pleasure. Realism is for crossovers and sedans; driver assistance technology is for customer cars; the best sports cars display a magnificent love affair between man and machine.

Here’s how to get behind the wheel.

Jaguar E-Type

Enzo Ferrari once called the Jaguar E-Type "the most beautiful car ever made". This 1960s beauty is a historic sports car mainstay. ‘’If there is one car that you must drive at least once in your lifetime, this is the one,’’ says McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. This staple of British motoring history can perform up to 150 m.p.h. What’s more? It can brake better than most cars from its generation.

Chevrolet Corvette

Chevy Corvette, the emblem of Big Three muscle cars, is the most treasured vehicle in America. The 2nd generation, which spanned from 1963 to 1967, is "the most historic American car ever manufactured," says the publisher of Sports Car Market - Keith Martin. Nowadays, it’s still fresh and breathtaking. There are plenty of early generation Corvettes in the U.S.

Lamborghini Miura

The Miura came in 1966 and is considered by some to be the sexiest car ever built. Apparently, it was designed to challenge Ferrari. Hagerty says, ‘’Piloting the Lamborghini Miura exceeds driving experience to become a life experience.’’ Fancy driving one? You must contact the Lamborghini Club America!

Rolls-Royce Dawn Drophead

Based on the first sensational car Rolls-Royce manufactured after the war, the initial Silver Dawn drophead presented in 1949 and retired in 1954. This special historic sports car was planned to mark the dawn of a new age for the world and Rolls-Royce's place in it. Nowadays, these are extremely rare. There are only three of the original 28 dropheads which have remained in the U.S.

BMW 3.0 CSL

Does any part of you harbours a race-track fantasy? If yes, the BMW 3.0 CSL is the one to track down. In 1975, when BMW came to America, it brought a quartet of models with it, with the 3.0 CSL Coupe. The car claimed victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring race that year and was driven by racing legends Sam Posey, Brian Redman and Hans Stuck. The following year, they went on to claim for the Daytona. In addition to its performance legacy, the 3.0 CSL pioneered a mass of technologies found in future BMW models.

VW Beetle

The vintage and historic VW Beetle represents fun and simplicity. In other words, you can say motoring at its best. Apart from the easy driving experience, the Beetle's outgoing exterior attracts people everywhere you are driving. It would seem like everyone has their own Beetle story to share.
