There are some cars you know you'll never own but should make a point of driving at least once in a lifetime.

AC Cobra

It's not only gorgeous but the AC Cobra is also known as 'the widowmaker,' which tells you all you need to know about its power output and driving dynamics.

Aston Martin DB5

Any Aston is worth a spin, but this is probably the closest you'll ever get to being James Bond.

Audi Quattro

A legendary rally car and the reason the world fell in love with four wheel drive. Its career includes a stellar turn in TV series, 'Life on Mars' and, less impressively, an appearance on a Conservative Party campaign poster.

Austin Allegro

One of those 'so bad it's good' occasions - could this innocuous looking car really have caused the downfall of the British auto industry in the Seventies?


It's ubiquitous for a reason. Never mind what image it projects, the M3 practically invented - and certainly perfected- the performance saloon. The E30 original is probably the top choice.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Officially still the fastest production car in the world, you'll probably need extra driving lessons before you take the wheel.

Caterham Seven

There are no comfort or convenience features on display here, but this could be the purest driving sensation ever.

Citroen DS

Possibly the most elegant journey you'll ever take behind a wheel, the DS was designed to be the most comfortable, beautiful, most advanced and best car in the world.

Citroen 2CV

A lesson in perfect automotive minimalism, the 2CV offers a very entertaining ride.

Ferrari Daytona

The one time fastest car in the world was also, arguably, the best looking.

Ferrari F40

Another regular candidate for the 'best Ferrari ever.' Both offer an unforgettable experience.

Ford Mustang

It's big, brutal and magnificent - and you'll feel the same after a spin at the wheel. Try to do it along the iconic Route 66, for a really American experience.

Jaguar E-Type

For a real sense of occasion, you can't beat an E-Type, a regular first place winner of any 'best,' 'most beautiful' and 'most iconic' automotive list.

Lamborghini Miura

Another candidate for the best looking car in the world, there are few more glamorous experiences than taking a Miura on a tour around the Italian lakes.
