Nothing beats having a collection of rare things. Especially things that have been discontinued. Knowing you’re one of only a few people to own a certain object is a very amazing thing, and can really spice up your collection. Where some people collect old coins or post stamps, finding a rare car seems a lot more difficult. Finding an expensive car is easy enough, but how do you find a car that’s truly unique?
This list will give you an idea what cars to look for if you want to make your car collection (which everyone has, don’t lie to me) truly unique. These won’t be the fastest or the prettiest, but at least you’ll be sure that asshole Dave from across the street won’t get a bigger or better car next week – half the cars in the world are bigger and better! And the other half are cars no one likes anyway. I’m looking at you, Fiat 500. Be gone from this earth and never return.
So now that I’ve made it very clear that these cars are purely motorized e-peen and have no real practical use, let’s take a look at some of the rarest cars to grace this wonderful planet.
10. Packard Panther
This car, built in 1954, never really made it to mass production. It can be picked up for about $800,000 and looks like a proper old car. The design is truly what you’d expect from a car from that era and it has a very high pimp factor. All it needs are the fluffy dice hanging from the rear view mirror.
9. Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing
This one was in production from 1957 to 1963. It had very distinctive gullwing doors (“flapping wing doors like a seagull that go up”). A nicely restored 300SL costs about $1.5 million today. It’s a Mercedes and those never come cheap – even an oldie but goodie like this one.
