The best Antique Classic Cars You Should Drive Before You Die



Jaguar E-Type





Jaguar E-Type, a British sports car manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975 was dubbed “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari and embodied the glamour and excitement of the swinging 1960s. The model became an icon of the automotive world due to its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing. If you can drive only one car from this list, make it this one.




Lamborghini Miura





The Miura, considered by some to be the sexiest car ever built, debuted in 1966 as a sleek mid-engine speedster designed to compete with Ferrari. The car was the first supercar with a rear mid-engined two-seat layout, although the concept was first seen in a production road car with René Bonnet’s Matra Djet, introduced in 1964. Since then, this layout has become the industry standard for high-performance sports and supercars.




Volvo P1800





Believe it or not, the Volvo P1800 Cyan 2021 is really a Volvo. It has a race-bred 413-hp engine, a five-speed manual transmission, and a body made almost entirely of carbon fiber. The eccentric Volvo P1800 was stylish enough for Roger Moore to drive one in the spy thriller television series The Saint. t is one of the most exuberantly irrational Swedish automobiles ever created.




Porsche 911





The Porsche 911, which debuted in 1963, is regarded as a masterpiece of the German automobile industry, and the 911 is regarded as an icon of true sports coupes that have been preserved for 50 years. Porsche should have used the 901 name for the 911, but Peugeot purchased the ‘copyright zero’ in the middle of the two digits, forcing Porsche to change the product name to 911 as it is today. The Porsche 911 epitomizes vintage driving at its finest. It’s an incredibly well-built machine that offers one of the most authentic driving experiences of any sports car ever built.




Chevy Corvette 1967





As the second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette sports car, produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1963 to 1967 model years, the Chevy Corvette (the most refined one) has earned a significant place in automotive history. They are iconic yet approachable museum-quality cars that have weathered the decades but with some ingenuity, you can still get behind the wheel of most of them.




Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing





The Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing was the fastest production car of its time when it was introduced in 1954, making it one of the first post-war sports cars with the first direct fuel injection, capable of reaching speeds of up to 160 miles per hour. “At the time, no one expected something like that from Mercedes.” Though approximately three-quarters of the original SL 300s still exist today, many remain in the hands of their original owners.




DeTomaso Pantera





With Italian styling and a reliable Ford V8 engine, the DeTomaso Pantera represents the best of Italian and american worlds and is a worthy alternative to similar Lamborghinis and Ferraris from the same era. This early ’70s Italian car is certainly a bit loud but is actually rather easy to drive.




Porsche 356





Porsche’s first production car, the rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive Porsche 356, lasted four generations before being retired in the mid-1960s. The 356 is considered the most developed of the four-cylinder Porsches, as well as the most fun to drive by vintage car experts. It’s not difficult to find one: approximately half of the 76,000 cars produced to survive.




Austin-Healey 3000





The Austin-Healey 3000, introduced in 1959, is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967 was an automotive icon of the Swinging Sixties. Jensen Motors created the car’s bodywork, and the vehicles were assembled at BMC’s MG Works in Abingdon alongside the corporation’s MG models. The Austin-Healey can cruise easily at 75 mph on today’s freeways thanks to its powerful six-cylinder engine and overdrive.




Chevrolet Camaro





The first Camaro was Chevrolet’s response to the Mustang–but with more style and power. In 1967, General Motors introduced the Camaro, sparking an eight-cylinder war of American muscle power that continues to this day.
