The Most Stylish Cars of all Time

The Most Stylish Cars of all Time

We often hear how people tend to buy cars that match their personality, identity, and sense of style. While this is not always true due to financial reasons, age, or physical restrictions, in many cases a stylish person would undoubtedly own a stylish car, and a stylish car will most likely belong to a stylish person.

 

The five most stylish cars of all time

It was only yesterday that I spotted a VW Beetle parked outside the restaurant where I was eating with my family. As expected, the owner of the car was as stylish as the car itself. Sometimes, I secretly think that buying a stylish car can, in a way, enhances your personal style, the way you dress, and even the way you walk.

 

Aston Martin DB5

Undeniably stylish Bond car, Aston Martin DB5 launched in 1963. Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera designed this British luxury grand tourer. The DB series was named after David Brown, the owner of Aston Martin from 1947 to 1972.

“In addition to the engine with increased power DB5 got a new 5-speed transmission ZF (except for some of the first cars), and three carburetor Skinners Union. Although at first, it was a standard 4-speed manual (with overdrive). As a result, a car with a six-cylinder 285-horsepower engine could reach a maximum speed of 233 km / h (145 miles / h). Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 8 seconds — and it’s pretty good for a sports car 60s of XX century,” according to Dragtimes.

If you’ve seen all James Bond movies, you must have stumbled upon this stylish hell of a ride that made its first film appearance in 1964 in Goldfinger. “Aston Martin DB5 — a very rare car, two years of series production of this model has released only 1023 machines: 65 machines have the prefix in the name of Vantage, and are characterized by high capacity — up to 315 liters. s. and the acceleration to 96 km / h was reduced to 6.5 seconds, reinforced by steel brake vacuum tank is a nice addition to the owners of this model,” Dragtimes reports.

 

Jaguar XK140

During the ’50s and ’60s, Jaguar had quite a run. With its engine designed by William Heynes, Walter Hassan, and Claude Baily, the XK120 was a breakthrough not only for Jaguar itself but for all sports cars in the post-war period. Launched in 1948, just like Mark V, XK120 has a 3.5-liter Hemi-head six-cylinder engine.

Its successor, though, the XK140, which debuted in 1954, is to this day one of the most stylish cars. Compared to its predecessor, the XK140 had an upgraded more spacious interior. Its brakes were improved, its suspension travel was increased, and it featured telescopic shock absorbers. If you’re a 50’s fan, you will love Jaguar XK140’s style, design, and the history it carries.

The origins of Jaguar go back to 1922 to the company that began by making motorcycle sidecars. In 1934, one of the founding fathers of the Swallow Sidecar Company, William Walmsley, decided to sell-out. His partner, William Lyons, formed S.S. Cars Limited, replacing Walmsley’s investment by issuing shares to the public, and started building automobiles.

Today, you can buy the XK140 for as low as $61,400. On another site, the lowest price for the 1956 Jaguar XK-140 FHC 1956, 5-speed gearbox and disc brakes is $84,800.

As you can see, with a little research, you can find pretty sweet deals. Jaguar’s two-seater E-Type which entered the market in 1962 is also a real gem. Even Enzo Ferrari called it the most beautiful car ever made.

 

Alfa Romeo 4C

According to Which Magazine,  Alfa Romeo 4C was named the most stylish car at the Australian Motoring Awards 2016.

Alfa Romeo 4C won WhichCar’s most stylish car for 2016. The award was presented to Fiat Chrysler Australia’s manager of PR and Communications, Rachel Reed. “We are very pleased with the outcome of the WhichCar Style Award and the response we had both through the online poll voting system and our judging panel. While all four finalists were very stylish and received acclaims from our judges, it was the Alfa Romeo 4C that stole the spotlight.”

“At the end of the day, its lovely detailing, X-factor appeal, and innovative design made it a worthy winner,” WhichCar’s Lifestyle Editor, Anna Kantilaftas, said.

The small, lightweight, rear-wheel drive sports car Alfa Romeo 4C is available in coupé and spider body styles. The two-seater, in order to maintain a lightweight of 2,315 lb, uses a carbon-fiber tub, front and rear crash box, and aluminum hybrid rear frame.

 

Awards

Since its launch in 2013, its catchy and chic design has caught the attention of many. As a result, the 4C holds many awards. From ‘The Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’ award by the readers of German magazine Auto Bild, The Alfa Romeo 4C Concept has won the Auto Bild Design Award in 2011, and the “Design Award for Concept Cars & Prototypes” by referendum of the public in Villa d’Este.

You can become an owner of this stylish ride for only $53,900. On a side note, if you are looking for a classic version of Alfa Romeo, go for Alfa Romeo Spider. Dustin Hoffman owned one in the 1967 The Graduate movie, where the car made its famous appearance. Just make sure to never run out of gas like Hoffman’s character Benjamin Braddock.

 

Volkswagen Beetle

VW Beetle – the people’s car

As a big fan of the Volkswagen Beetle, I can’t help but include the Bug, AKA the Super Beetle, Maggiolino, Fusca, or Cucaracha on this list. Volkswagen manufactured and marketed the Beetle from 1938 until 2003. The car was not only a sign of coming back to normality after World War II but also an icon of export success. During that time the car gained a lot of attention domestically as well as internationally, especially in the United States.

According to Bernhard Rieger, a history teacher at the University College of London, and author of “Technology and the Culture of Modernity in Britain and Germany,” 1890-1945, the car, to former West Germans, in particular, was not only seen as just another successful car but as a multi-layered and uncontroversial icon of the Federal Republic.

“Rather than remaining a merely functional object, the car came to articulate and communicate a broad range of sentiments that, given its prominence, highlight key aspects of West German collective identity,” Rieger wrote in his journal titled “The ‘Good German’ Goes Global: Volkswagen Beetle as an Icon in the Federal Republic.”

The world’s longest-running and most manufactured car of a single platform is truly one of the most stylish cars out there. With a starting price of $20,695 you, too, can become one proud owner of this cute little historic vehicle.

 

Lamborghini Murcielago

Want to reach places fast and in style? Lamborghini is your answer. This timeless sports car is the epitome of beauty and grace. Lamborghini introduced Murcielago in 2001 as a coupe. Drivers in North America received an opportunity to test-drive this supercar in 2002.

What makes this car special is the fact that the Murcielago was Lamborghini’s first new design in 11 years. Also, the car was the brand’s first new model under the ownership of the Volkswagen Group.

“The company produced a record 2,430 vehicles in 2008. Of this, nearly 1,800 were the best-selling car, the Gallardo, and just over 630 of them were the flagship model, the Murcielago. The Murcielago can go from 0 to 100 kph in 3.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 340 kph,” according to dtv.com.

Shipping a luxury car

Are you a lucky owner of an exquisitely stylish car or planning to buy one soon and need to ship it? You must be excited and anxious at the same time then. Shipping a luxury, classic, or sports car is a more complicated process than shipping just any car.

Your exotic car is an expensive investment. Would you want to risk having it delivered with any kind of damages, or even worse – to become a victim of a car shipping scam? No. And, you wouldn’t trust just any company to transport it.

Therefore, we urge you to thoroughly research auto haulers that offer luxury car shipping services. Make sure you learn all about the process and the company before handing over the key. It contains all the information you need to successfully transport your luxury car.

 

Here is how shipping a luxury car across America works:

  1. The car shipping process starts with a quote. You can request a free no-obligation estimate online. And if you prefer more personalized service, call to speak with a logistics specialist.
  2. Disclose details about the vehicle – make, model, and modifications.
  3. A logistics expert will schedule your shipment based on your desired shipping dates. If you are looking for a specific date delivery, discuss your options with a car shipping agent.
  4. After you and the car transporter agree on the details of service, a carrier will pick up your car one to a few days from your first available date.
  5. It’s important to remember that the carrier must inspect your vehicle before loading it and fill out an inspection report.
  6. The transit time depends mainly on the distance – your agent will inform you of the estimated delivery time.
  7. At delivery, the carrier must inspect the vehicle again. After that, you sign the Bill of Lading, the document that releases the auto transporter from any further responsibility.

Do you need to ship a Lamborghini, a BMW, a Corvette, or any other luxury car to another state? We are here to help you transport it with peace of mind. Request a free, no-obligation car shipping quote online or call (818) 850-5258 to discuss your options with one of our logistics experts. Thank you!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
