Rarest Jaw Dropping Classic Cars You Need to Know About

Have you ever thought about sitting in a car from the 1960s to experience what your grandparents did? Let us inform you about the classic cars that are so rare that it will be an adventure to find one.

Rolls Royce 15 HP

It’s a car that not only demands respect but literally expects a jaw drop whenever someone sees it in person.  It is one of the most expensive and oldest cars in the world. Being the first vehicle made by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, the 1904 Rolls Royce 15 HP is legendary and is one of a kind. We can still witness the car in vintage shows and museums as it reminds us of the foundation of the celebrated luxury car company.

1969 Dodge Hemi Coronet R/T Convertible

Only 4 Coronet R/T convertible were ever produced from 1969 to 1972. The muscle car is a rare item and collectors can go to any limit to include this retro phenomenon in their garage. Although the car did not have any spectacular history yet its scarcity has made it valuable. As of now the car can proudly sink any car collection as being a Coronet makes it a dependable muscle car.

Talbot Lago Grand Sport

Talbot was always the child of controversy with its ownership being passed on to numerous holders over the years. The company faced many hard times including a period of zero manufacturing from 1960 to 1978. It was then graced by Lago Grand Sport that was touted as the fastest touring and artistic car in France in 1948. Only 12 luxurious Lago were manufactured by them and this makes it a desirable car in any collectors list.

Porsche 916

It is defiantly one of the most popular Porsche of all time and it is rare to spot a 916 by accident. The car is so unique that only 11 of its models were manufactured which were nothing more than prototypes. The car could hit the top speed of 233 km per hour being the lightest and fastest Porsche ever made. The gem of 1972 never saw a decent level of production as Porsche thought its price tag of $14,000 was too high for most of the buyers.  It was heartbreaking for many car lovers as they could never ever enjoy the ride of this beautiful beast.

1921 Helica de Leyat

When Helica was launched the newspapers termed it as “the plane without the wings”. The extraordinary design of Frenchman Marcel Leyat made the car stand out among its competitors. The car derived its power from a propeller that was stationed in its front that gave it the famous look of a plane. The car was seen as rather dangerous due to its extreme speed and unorthodox design and only 30 Helica ever came into existence. You can still take a glance of this rare car in the private collection of some seasoned collectors.

These cars are not just legendary but a showcase of sheer will and creativity of human mind. If you want to relive the bygone era, then rush to the nearest showcase of these splendid cars.
