Seven Deadly Sinners: Cars We’d Kill To Own
If you’ve ever looked at a piece of art, and feel like you’ve witnessed perfection, that’s what this and many of the other cars on this list represent to us at Boldride. Some cars come along once in a lifetime and are definitive automotive perfection in artful design or performance and once in a while a rare a combination of both. These ‘7 Deadly Sinners’ are a septet cars we’d kill to own. No further explanation is needed, but that won’t stop us from providing a little more explanation: 1963-1967 Shelby Cobra-427:
Shelby’s cars were and are world-beaters. They took on Ferrari in the 1960’s and won. Vehicular nameplates like Cobra, GT40, GT350/GT500, and even Viper are all widely attributed to Carroll Shelby’s influence. It all started with shoehorning a 289 cubic inch V8 into an AC Ace.
1966-1972 Lamborghini Miura:
The voluptuous Miura curves are almost feminine in its simple beauty. It’s simply sublime in the awe-inspiring sense of the word.
1974-1990 Lamborghini Countach:
Now the Countach might not be as beautiful as a Miura, but it is more of a risky design, and a great sequel. It’s all angles, with fewer curves but still manages to be defined as “beauty” worldwide in numerous people’s opinions, ours included.
1992-1998 Mclaren F1:
The Mclaren F1 was a car built to be the best a car could be for its time. The engine bay is lined with gold to dissipate heat. A Mclaren F1 was a timeless design that still looks fresh today.
1937-1939 Talbot Lago T150C SS Figoni & Falaschi Teardrop Coupé:
Possibly one of the most beautiful cars ever produced, it’s reminiscent of a Bugatti type 57 Atlantic, another extraordinarily beautiful car. This type of 1930’s design with long flowing curvaceous lines just screams out to my very soul. What more can or do I need to say?
1968-1974 Ferrari Daytona GTB/4 Cam:
A four-cam, V12 engine will make you want to consider a life of rare automobile theft. Other than a 250SWB/250GTO Ferrari this is the pinnacle of classic Ferraris for us.
1961-1971 Jaguar XKE/E Type:
Enzo Ferrari called this the most beautiful car ever made. Sadly Jaguar’s current cars look bloated by comparison because they had it right in the past and they know it. So does the company that makes the Eagle Speedster.
Yes these are most definitely 7 deadly sinners. If you have a vehicle in mind that should’ve been on this list, please feel free to leave us a comment below.
