If your car taste is limited to the few that you see being sold in the US, it’s time to expand your palette with some incredible cars.
There are so many brands and companies in the world that you’ve probably never heard or that were only around for a short period of time. Let’s take a look at some of the cars that make this list and can easily be admired by you.
Venturi 400 GT
In the 1990s, a small French car company created a car called the 400 Trophy for a gentleman-driver spec series. There were also 13 models of one of the most incredible cars offered that were made. This car was the 400 GT which was a spectacular example of sport and fun put together in a car that could handle the track with ease.
One of the most posh manufacturers of cars was the Wiesmann company. They were a small boutique company that gave us a few cars that could offer the drive desired. The MF5 was powered by a strong 5.0-liter V10 engine that was found in the E60-generation of the BMW M5. Only 43 of the MF5 were ever made and it was easily one of the most incredible cars made to give us an amazing drive.
Panoz AIV Roadster
The Georgia-based company, Panoz, has a storied racing history but it also has a few road cars to share as well. One such car is the AIV Roadster which was a lower-production car that offered the fun of a go-kart with a V8 engine under the hood. This car looked like something of a bygone era and is certainly one of the most incredible cars that you’ve never heard of and will love to see and drive.
Lister is another company that you might have heard of if you have followed racing around the world, but otherwise, would not have heard of at all. the Lister Storm is a car that was made for the road and it was based on the Le Mans racer with a 7.0-liter Jaguar V12 engine that sounded amazing. This car looked great and drove right and its easily one of the most incredible cars you have never heard mentioned anywhere.
The design of the Excalibur SS was created with one simple idea in mind; design a car with a modern chassis, engine, and suspension that looks like it came from the Mercedes-Benz SSK of the 1920s. That’s exactly what this car is and how it appears for your drive. There were over 3500 of these models built, but very few enjoy them the way they should.
Do you know of any incredible cars that others don’t know very well at all? Are there a few cars that you can think of that aren’t part of the mainstream automotive conversation? These five cars might give you a starting place where you can begin to think of the cars that you’ve admired over many years.
