A Lowdown On The 1...

Money is good, money is great but when it comes to the world of exotic wheels, you’d better have tonnes of it, for, if one were to go by this list of 10 rarest cars on the planet below, nothing less shall do!

  1. Imagine a car that looks like the ancestor of the Batmobile and came with electronically opening doors and a beverage cabinet at the rear – all this in 1938! Yep, the Phantom Corsair took our breath away too. Pity it never went into full-scale production though.
  2. Whisper the name ‘Mormon Meteor’ and watch as hush settles all around you. Better known as the Duesenberg SJ, the car was an engineering brute, draped in the most gorgeous of clothes. Ab Jenkins, who had a thing or two for land-speed records, commissioned this beast back in 1934. Riding on a 1650 cubic inch V12 engine, she set the Salt Flats at Bonneville ablaze for running two days straight before posting a 24 hour record of 153.823 miles/hour.
  3. The Cinque Roadster may barely be street legal, but with only five examples made, it rightly makes the cut as one of the 10 rarest cars on the planet.
  4. The Pur Sang happened as Bugatti thought the regular Veyron wasn’t exclusive enough. Each of the five new cars made, are among the baddest in the entire Veyron line-up. View more Bugatti cars.
  5. A 1000+ bhp daily-driver of a super-car? Trust the Danish to come up with a thought like that. The Zenvo ST1 was originally designed as a rolling chassis and features a seven litre turbocharged & supercharged engine under the hood.
  6. The Oldsmobile F-88 was one of only four that General Motors ever built. Beneath the swooping bodywork & gorgeous lines was a V8 Rocket engine that was good enough for 250 ponies.
  7. No tifosi will ever forgive you for missing out on the Ferrari 250 GTO. Built in the early sixties for homologation purposes, the 250 GTO has broken records at some of the most elite auto auctions in the world. View more Ferrari cars.
  8. If you ever manage to get your hands on a Koenigsegg Trevita, two things’ll get confirmed. One, you have a lot of money and two, there’ll only be one other person besides you who’ll have one of this.
  9. The Mercedes W196 F1 car piloted by the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio, from 1954, went under the hammer a few years ago for 31 Million USD! Phew!
  10. The ’69 ZL1 Camaro was an out an out muscle car. A darling of the drag-specialists, few of the then new cars remain today in original, unrestored form.
