At Powerspark we adore classic cars, this is the main reason that we supply a wide range of classic car parts for many different cars. Be sure to have a look at our cars page for a selection of but ‘not limited too’, to see if we provide the right car parts for you. Seen below are 5 classic cars that we perceive are the greatest of all time, they are in no particular order, so we’ll leave that ranking to you.
Aston Martin DB5
Starting off with an absolute giant in the classic car scene. There are not many cars that feel classic compared to an Aston Martin. Whether it be its mechanical design, it’s ice-cold look or the obvious affiliation to James Bond, the car truly is a classic. Though it looks the part of a sports car, it’s 4.0 litre and 6-cylinder engine made sure that it was not fitting to that label. It can reach up to 145 mph, so there is no wonder why it may be mistaken for a sports car. In fact it is more of a luxury car with it’s wool carpets and electric windows.
Another one of the most popular names in the entire industry. We do not know one person who is not aware of this car. The earliest version of the 911 started with a 2.0 litre engine. It had totalhorsepower of around 130, this massively contrasts to the more recent models as they are more like 500 +! Yet when it first came out in 1963, it was ahead of its time and a breath of fresh air in the car industry. Porsche ceased production of the model in 1989, however there are still so many mint condition versions being drive around and cared for today.
This car goes down as one of the biggest selling cars of all time. It’s smart simple design appealed to consumers in the 1960’s as that is when it gained the majority of its popularity, despite being around since before WW2. Sadly the Beetle had production stopped in 2019, yet because of how many are still being sold and can be seen on the roads today. The true legacy of the Beetle will never be forgotten.
This classic car birthed the term ‘4×4’. First produced with the 80” series 1 in 1948, the car was a good 30-40 years ahead of its time as the car was the first all-rounder. You could drive it off and off the roads, on rough or smooth ground, it was the perfect car to get from A to B. The car is still being developed with newer models today which goes to show how popular and groundbreaking it was in the early 1950’s.
The saying ‘saving the best till last’ is thrown around a lot these days, however this phrase cannot be more true when referring to the Jaguar E-Type in our classic cars list. Described by Enzo Ferrari as ‘The most beautiful car ever made’ it was the golden jewel in British manufacturing. It saw Jaguar rise up as one of the main brands within the country and they still are today. It ruled the 1960’s, with it being faster than the Ferrari and at a third of the price! There truly are not enough superlatives to describe these classic cars.
