ChipsAway's favourite classic cars

Classic cars are a favourite amongst many – they are innovative, beautifully designed and ooze style. What’s not to like?!

We’ve put together a list of our favourite classic cars – which one is your favourite?

 

Daimler DB18 Drophead Coupe

This one-of-a-kind classic car has made headlines recently. It was used by Sir Winston Churchill for campaigning in the 1940s and is now being auctioned at an extortionate price of £250,000! Even though 8 of these cars were made in 1939, it’s the only one of its kind left. There’s no doubt this classic is original and gorgeously designed, would you pay that price for this classic?

 

Jaguar E type

We love the shape of this original Jaguar E type – it’s elongated front is innovative, distinctive and stylish. Enzo Farrari called it “The most beautiful car ever made”, which is a sure reason to give it a spot in our top 5!

 

1957 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing

The gull-wing doors are a key reason as to why this car makes a cut in our top favourite classics. Not only do the doors extremely cool, but the 300SL Gullwing was the fastest production car of its day! It was first introduced in 1954 as a two-seat coupé with its distinctive doors, and was later offered as an open roadster.

 

The Aston Martin DB5

Although the Aston Martin DB5 is not the first of its kind, being released in 1963, it is renowned for being the most recognised James Bond car. Since first appearing in the film Goldfinger (1964), it’s earnt its place as being one of the favourite classics in the world!

 

1966 Shelby 427 Cobra

There’s no doubt that this car looks great. The Cobra 427 Super Snake made history in 2007 when it fetched $5.5 million at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction. Auction organisers claimed that this was a world record price for an American car, which shows how desirable it really is!
