One thing is for sure, the people who work here at VIP European Auto are absolutely obsessed with cars. Maybe even a little too obsessed. At times, it feels like cars are all we think about. Since we are thinking about cars so often, we might as well spend some time thinking about some of the most iconic cars of all times. These are the vehicles that car lovers dream about at night. Let’s get right into it!
1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato
Most people are probably more familiar with the later model of the Aston Martin, the DB5 which debuted in 1963, but we believe the DB4 is the pinnacle of beauty and elegance. From the wire wheels, to the timeless Aston grille, to its amazing curves and lines, the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 is a car unlike another. It boasts a 0-60 time of 6 seconds and commands an incredible for the time 314 horsepower. The DB4 still auctions for over $1 million today.
1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic
Defined by its sleek, curvaceous, winding, black sheet metal, the Type 57 Atlantic is beautiful enough to make most car enthusiasts fall in love. The long hood and squat body make it look almost like a vintage Batmobile. In 1936, this vehicle combined style, power, and sophistication unlike any other. Today, it sells in auctions for well over $30 million.
A list of iconic cars wouldn’t be complete without the Jaguar E-Type. Considered by many to the most beautiful vehicle ever made, its long hood, low body, and sleek profile set a standard for excellence other cars are still trying to reach today. The E-Type wasn’t just about looks either, as it boasted a powerful V12 engine.
