5 Best Classic Sports Cars
The 5 best classic sports cars listed here have passed with honor and style the many hardships of the demanding market, and are presented as the brave winners of all times. Ones by taste, others by reliability, they still remain inside the hearts of a good segment of nostalgic drivers that often go back those glorious days of yore.
- Volkswagen Porsche 914. This was a co-op work to elaborate a memorable car. Putting together the best team into their lines, the people of Volkswagen and Porsche joined forces for the sole purpose to offer -between the years 1969 to 1976-, one model that would remain inside the group of preferred cars in the past. As part of the mid engine sport branch, it was given a VW engine with all its components. While on the other side, Porsche was in charge of the body shells and the whole advertising campaign. Just to make sure you are a true lover of this model, you can tell by one look at the year of manufacture just by checking the traits it had each year. The bumpers being the most easiest hint to know its year of birth.
- Lamborghini Countach. This is a model that you would never forget once you see it, because it was such a classic between 1973 and early 90’s. Conceived by the famous Italian manufacturer, it showed such a striking exterior body that was used very often during the 80’s, both in TV series and movies as a symbol of speed and versatiliy. It featured the fancy flip up door. Even with those shocking traits, some owners complained about the steering and the transmission; but nothing seemed to undermine its vast reputation.
- Datsun 240z. Maybe not created as spectacular as its other competitors outside the car market, this “heavy” vehicle always met good sales in several countries. This was an undeniable fact for a very long time in Japan. Three important factors were highlighted when tested: you could rely on its vigorous performance, excellent economy and fascinating handling. It is impressive to find repair parts for this machine for a very reasonable price even at these times. This is something that makes us think that no one could ever forget this classic.
- Audi Quattro. From German territories, this good looking car made the way to the roads in 1980 to last eleven more years ahead. It's included here as a hit because it granted the “rally” a experience to be lusted with passion in racing history. A team of three genius men were responsible for the design: Jorg Bersinger, Walter Tresser and Ferdinand Piech. Let’s check the secret formula behind it: surprisingly unbeatable four wheel drive transmission and turbo charged five cylinder engine. Nowadays, this living legend can be inside your garage for less amount of money that you can think to spend.
- Renault Alpine A 110. Elegant as it was supposed to be, conceived by top French remarkable expert Jean Redele, the Renault Alpine is one of the best thanks to its well deserved popularity back in those days when sports cars were a synonym of pleasure. This is another classic to hit the Rally circuits as one of the favorites in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
