The definition of a bucket list is entirely unique for every individual, where one might want to take trips to different countries others might want to do that bungee jumping from all the bridges possible. But for automobile enthusiasts, the list is elite, and not affordable at all.
There are literally hundreds of different models of cars driven by the daily public for their everyday use. They are manufactured in bulk and can be easily spotted on the road. But real enthusiasts know the real gems that exist in the middle of hundred ordinary cars. These are the ones they would love to get their hands on. So here is a list of top 10 cars that you must own in your lifetime. Take a note!
1. BMW 2002:
No automobile collection is complete without the BMW 2002. It is one of the most successful cars from the BMW camps. With 170 HP, a large body, sports car look and the class of a limousine. Collectors around the world sport this car in their collection with pride and there are still many on the hunt to own this at least once in their lifetime.
2. Volkswagen Bus:
As the name goes, it is a compact hybrid of a car and a bus. Started in the 1960s, the model became so famous that many other competitors started to launch their own version of this minibus. It continued with various versions of it and lasted for decades, with its production stopping recently in 2013. But for collectors, it is still a gold mine.
3. Jeep Wrangler:
Jeep is known for its tough and off-road SUVs. The model began in 1986 and is still a dream for many to own. It has come a long since its inception and is still being upgraded in its way even now. Its iconic look of the rectangular body makes it stand out from the rest of the crowd.
4. Ferrari Testarossa:
Started in the 1980s, this 2 door coupe is something that people still remember about Ferrari after so many decades. The name literally translates to ‘Red Head’ and the popularity of this is why people associate the color red with Ferrari. It is a collector’s dream.
5. Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser
For 4 decades starting from the 1960s, Toyota produced Land Cruisers that evolved with almost every passing year. It had the looks similar to that of a jeep but was said to be more spacious. It was great for both on-road and off-road purposes and was available all over the world. Even though the production stopped years ago, it is still in good demand by car enthusiasts.
6. Volkswagen Beetle:
One of the oldest cars which are still seen on the roads and recognized instantly is the Volkswagen Beetle. Its biggest selling point is its shape, and that is why that is one aspect that hasn’t been modified much for so many years. It is compact, it is iconic, and it is one that everyone wants to own once in their lifetime.
7. Lada Riva
Lada Riva is a token classic old school car. It is designed quite simply without any major features and was one of the largest selling cars in its time. It was started in the 1980s, and the production went as late as 2012. For a collector of vintage cars, this is a must-have in their kitty.
8. Rolls Royce Wraith
Coming to more high-end vintage cars, Rolls Royce Wraith screams of luxury and class. It was in production for just 1 year way back in 1938, and that is one of the reasons, it is very hard to get hands-on. So if a collector has it, it has to be their poster car to show off!
9. Ford Bronco
Speaking of SUVs on the list, Ford Bronco is the one to go for. The production was only from 1965 to 96 and was a rage among the SUV competition in the automobile market. And for people who wanted to own it back then, but couldn’t do it for so many reasons, here is the news, Bronco is set to start its production back in 2020.
10. The Amphicar
Amphicar is one of a kind. The ad copy was enough to sell the car. ‘A car that can run of land and on the water!’ It was in production for just 5 years, and it created waves for the time it existed. So to own one is to own a rare species that once existed on the earth!
Owning a car is a challenge in itself, but if you get a kick out of keeping the vintage and exotic, the list will never end. What is that one car that you always wanted to own?1
