Austin Seven Race Car
One of the most amazing race cars of all time, the Austin Seven was the UK’s first pocket-friendly car launched in 1922. With a 6 feet 13-inch wheelbase and a four-cylinder engine, the car had a capacity of producing 747cc and 10.5hp power. The car competed at Brooklands in the Easter Monday Meeting in 1923 and achieved a flying lap of 62.40mph.
BMW Iso Isetta
Launched in 1953, the Iso Isetta was the first “bubble car” of the world. Intrigued? Well, you ought to, given the compact egg-shaped body of this peculiar car! Iso Autoveicoli manufactured the Isetta, but BMW redesigned the manufacturing plant in 1954. In the Mille Miglia road race that took place in the same year, the BMW Iso Isetta secured the 177th position. It was the last car to cross the finishing line.
Rolls Royce Corniche
This model was launched in two versions, one being the hardtop coupe that was seen from 1971 to 1980 and the second being the convertible one that lasted from 1971 to 1995. Rolls-Royce was among the luxurious brands, and the Corniche model had the popular V8 engine.
BMW M3 E30
The E30 generation M3 was made for racing in circuits. With a BMW S14 four-cylinder engine, the car proved to be a great race car. Bernard Béguin was the first one to drive the BMW M3 during 1987’s Tour de Corse. The race was a great success and paved the way for the M3 model.
Honda Civic Tourer
A mix of a classic family car and a powerful race car, the Honda Civic is one of the greatest models of all time. With a top speed of 130mph, the car had a 300bhp, 2.0-liter turbo engine that made the car compatible with racing circuits.
Wrapping it up
