Throughout the history of the automobile, hundreds of brands have appeared, many have disappeared, and few of them have created their legacy, with consecrated cars and that have entered the memory of the people, becoming great classics. Check out below which are the most famous cars of all time and discover the reason for their importance.
1. DeLorean DMC-12 (USA)
DeLorean was a sales flop, but it has become the epic of moviegoers and science fiction fans for its role as the time machine of the famous trilogy Back to the Future .
Perhaps the same feature that made him a movie star has made him a failure in the stores: his extremely futuristic design. Besides its poor performance and its high price, of course.
2. Aston Martin DB5 (UK)
An elegant, luxury-packed, comfortable car with a powerful engine that takes it from 0 to 100 ㎞ / h in 8.4 seconds. Not for nothing, it was chosen to be the car of the character James Bond , the most famous British spy of the cinemas, in 007 Contra Goldfinger .
3. Ferrari F-40 (Italy)
The F-40 is the Ferrari with the face of the 1980s. Last designed under the supervision of Enzo Ferrari, its design was based on the competition cars, leading a large V8 engine in the rear.
However, the model was designed for walking on the streets and became known as the world’s fastest series-produced car at its time, reaching 324 ㎞ / h.
4. Porsche 911 (Germany)

5. Bugatti Veyron (France)
The Veyron could not be left out of this list: it is the series-produced car, designed to ride on normal, fastest roads and streets of all time, reaching the mark of 431 ㎞ / h. Luxurious and comfortable, was elected as the car of the decade (2001 to 2009) by the British Top Gear program .
In many countries for a car to be considered exotic car hire, it must be at least 30 years old , but there are cars that do not reach that age and are considered full-fledged classic cars. To consider a classic car, you must give certain factors such as the mentioned age, or, and just to put a couple of examples, have been a resounding success of sales or have influenced the market in some way. The fact of being sporting or limited editions is also an important point in favor of a car being considered classic.
At this point, and due to our fondness for cars, we thought it appropriate to make a selection, the typical ‘Top 5’, with classic cars that we like the most . We have focused on the decade of the 80s, bordering those 30 years ‘legal’ and certainly, if you love cars like us, one of the members of this list will be present in your car garage for the memory.
