Classic cars in my opinion are the coolest cars because of their heritage and their designs that still look cool today as they did 40-50 years ago. Many of the following classic cars have been used in famous movies over the years and simply ooze coolness. Check these beauties out!
1964 Aston Martin DB5
It’s been the most iconic car throughout the James Bond movies, starring in “Thunderball” and “Goldfinger” alongside Sean Connery and the most recent bond movie, Skyfall. This famous car was created by Italian automobile coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera.
Released in 1961, Enzo Ferrari described it as “the most beautiful car ever made.” It’s perfect for showing off whilst touring around the country. This E-Type Jaguar is king of the classical vintage cars.

1967 Chevy Impala
“Here’s another legitimate reason for making up errands to run.” – 1967 Chevrolet brochure.
This car is spacious and full of deluxe interior. But its style and comfort aren’t the only things it’s famous for. The Chevy Impala makes a regular appearance in the US series “Supernatural”.
Ferrari 250 GTO
The GTO is one of the top sport cars of all time. With its beautiful red looks and its blistering pace, everyone wanted one of their own.
Sadly for most, they’d have to continue life without one as only 39 were made between 1962 and 1964.
If this didn’t make it tricky enough to get hold of, Enzo Ferrari, along with North America, Luigi Chinetti, had to approve your application before buying it.
Not difficult in the slightest. In 2012, the Ferrari 250 GTO became the world’s most expensive car after it sold for an eye-watering $35million.
Maserati 3500 GT
Not only does this look classy from the outside, the luxurious interior and electric windows were just as impressive in the 60s.
And with a coupé body styled by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera and the engine designed by Alfieri, this car definitely gave Ferrari a fright.
1964-1966 Ford Mustang
This cool and lustrous car was introduced April 17, 1964 at the World’s Fair in New York City.
In that one day alone, Ford had secured a massive 22,000 orders. It’s no surprise that everyone went crazy for this car, its great power and comfort made this a smooth ride.
1966 Shelby 427 Cobra
This Super Snake made history in 2007 after it fetched $5.5million at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction.
When Carroll Shelby described what he aimed for when producing the Cobra, he explained on the Barrett-Jackson website that he wanted it to be the “fastest, meanest car on the road.”
This stylish car was designed by Giovanni Michelotti and introduced to the world in 1970. The Stag is as desirable to look at as it is to drive. The luxury sports car was electrifying and reached a top speed of 118mph.
Mini Cooper 1275S (1964-1971)
The Mini has always been a well-loved car. Even to this day, car fanatics try and get their hands on one of these beauties.
It’s no wonder they’re so popular. This little Cooper won the Monte Carlo race three times which led to further models being produced until 2000.
With its amazing hydrolastic suspension and its quirky style, this Mini is a wonderful combination of performance and affordability.
Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental
This vehicle was nicknamed “Star of India” after being owned by the Maharaja of Rajkot.
If you’re not a fan of driving in the dark, this Rolls-Royce has 14 pairs of headlights, one pair which turns along with the steering wheel.
This was the first Porsche to cause controversy for car lovers. This may be a Porsche, but the engine came from the Volkswagen 411, giving this car a nickname of “VW Porsche 914”.
Although many people disagreed with Porche’s decision to do this, others loved it just for its design.
Styled by Porsche, it’s estimated that around 120,000 were sold.
