Therefore, every good car aficionado has a list of the most unforgettable cars of all time.
And not to be left out, we have also made a selection of 6 of the most famous cars that have remained in the automotive industry’s history.
Our list of the most iconic cars ever made
McLaren F1 LM
The McLaren F1 LM is undoubtedly one of the greatest automotive icons of the 1990s when it was considered unbeatable.
The model was the result of a collaboration between McLaren and BMW, who came together to manufacture the fastest car in the world off the race track.
The model has a 6.0 V12 engine and can reach speeds of 386 km/hour.
Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR
The model is one of Mercedes’ most iconic. Only 26 street units were created, homologating the racing version (which also had only 7 units).
Thus, it was built for the GT1 championship, of the FIA (International Automobile Federation). To participate, it was necessary to have streetcar prototypes, with a minimum number to be marketed.
It has a 6.5L V12 engine, M120, with 630 hp of power. Its look was identical to the one that participated in the GT1 world championship.
Hennessey Venom GT Spyder
The Venom GT Spyder is a convertible version of the Venom GT model and is almost as fast as its “sister” model.
In 2016, it unofficially became the fastest convertible car in the world. The reason for unofficial is that the Guinness Record requires cars to run a course in two directions and the Spyder achieved its top speed in only one direction.
The record book also requires that 30 cars of the same model be produced, and only 4 models had been sold at the time.
It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds
In the Bugatti Chiron, VW Group engineering has done a job of extreme perfection: ultra-modern, incredibly fast, agile and powerful, with a demanding design and the highest possible levels of comfort and safety.
In terms of performance, the Bugatti Chiron has a W16 engine with 4 Turbochargers, 1,500 hp, and a top speed reached by computer simulations of 463 km/h.
Officially it reaches 420 km/h. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 2.5 seconds! Marketed for 2.4 million Euros, only 500 cars will be built.
Lamborghini today is best known for its supercars with bold colors, massive design and overall “show-off” styling.
One of the first true supercars, it was also the fastest production car in the 1960s.
Its performance was unprecedented for the time which made it one of Lamborghini’s most famous models, and a recognized icon.
One of the most classic cars in cinema, and the passion of any geek who loves the 80’s, is Dr. Emmett Brown’s car.
Used in the Back to the Future franchise, the Delorean DMC-12 had only nine thousand units built between 1981 and 1982 and became a hit because of the movie.
In the movie, the car served as a time machine thanks to its flux capacitor developed by Dr. Brown, which led young Marty McFly to have an impressive experience between past and future.
