Cars we love
Last week we wrote about what it is about cars that we humans love. Our first cars will always hold a special place in our hearts and there’ll always be a special relationship with our trusty, everyday runaround.
While not everyone can or would want to spend their money for a privilege of having a glorious, premium vehicle parked in their garage, there’s always room to dream. These are the cars that most of us would probably never buy but can’t help but love. With an endless range of beautiful cars, we decided to pick just three.
3. Lamborghini Miura – The Fastest Sports Car in the World
The Lamborghini Miura sports car was produced between 1966 and 1973. At launch, it had a top speed of 280 km/h and an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds, making it the fastest production road car available in the world. The Miura’s central V12 engine, groundbreaking body shape and its incredible speed set new standards in the world of sports cars. Today, the new Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage honours what is also one of the most beautiful cars ever made.
2. McClaren F1 - The Finest Sports Car The World Has Ever Seen
Production of the McClaren F1 began in 1992. On 31 March 1998 (it’s last year of production) the British sports car set the record for the world’s fastest production car. Only 106 cars were manufactured. It’s projected value falls within $12 – 15 million.
“Power, pace and peerless quality, the legendary McLaren F1 is a technological masterpiece. The fastest production car of its time. The finest sports car of its generation. For many, the greatest super car ever built.”
1. Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost – The Best Car in the World
In its first few years of production, the Silver Ghost was the best touring car in the world. Rolls-Royce produced 7,874 Silver Ghosts between the years 1906 and 1926. The Silver Ghost was claimed to be the “Best Car in the World” by Auto car in 1907. In 2012, not only was it the best, but it became the most valuable car in the world when it fetched $7.1million at an auction. Every Rolls-Royce engine ever made is entirely hand built, and approximately 65% of all Rolls-Royce motor cars are still roadworthy and in use today.
