The Top 5 Coolest Cars in the World
This article shows the result of a poll which was organized by numerous automotive magazines, voted by people based on their favourite and most amazing cars they have ever seen since the 1930s in the markets and also a few from last 100 years. The question arises: what makes a car the coolest? What are the factors that define coolness of the car? Is it the design that matters the most, car engine or the performance?
As a matter of fact, every user thinks differently in this regard. Therefore, the difference of opinion is quite evident and in the similar fashion, the choice of the car might differ. Some people give priority to some features that others seem to ignore. Similarly, there are some surprise entries of cars that no one thought could be in the top five favorite cars.
A number of people select the cars in this list. Owing to their flamboyant appearances, all of these are poster cars and their posters have long hung in their bedrooms, and now probably are the wallpapers of their mobile and computer screens. These cars represent dreams of many and people have actually gone crazy for them at the time of their manufacture and even until now.
There can be many reasons why people have chosen these cars as the best cars around the globe. One of the main reasons could be the performance of the car. Others reasons could include appearance or interior of cars. Few might fall for the interior and few like the handling the car offers. Technology can also count as a reason to drive people to vote for it.
Many of these are classic old-fashioned cars, which were built as per the demand of people back in time. These are some obvious factors which can influence the opinion of the user or can be a decisive factor.
Other than the expected reasons for the liking of a car, there are some different reasons as well, which do not count design, performance, technology or any other specific feature of the car as a point of reference. For example, the usage of a car by any celebrity in the past dramatically enhances the value of the car in the eyes of the users. People tend to like cars that have been used by some celebrity and when they drive that specific car, they experience a sense of pleasure that they are driving the same car, which their favorite celebrity once drove.
This celebrity connection is one of the strongest factors, which can lead people to like even a less attractive vehicle because for a few people it is the celebrity that matters more than the car. For example, Steve McQueen connection; he drove whatever he found but if we consider the chasing on the road, the first, and the foremost car that comes in our mind is the American Muscle. Similarly, for track racing, Ford Mustang takes the lead. The McLaren F1 appears on the top while thinking about the formula 1 racing.
In addition to that, a few votes were cast against particular models e.g. since Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro are rivals, they were voted more. The celebrity mania can also be exemplified by Aston Martin vehicles in James Bond movies and Mini Cooper with Rowan Atkinson.
There is no doubt in the fact that Motorsport remained quite famous in the past and had established an outstanding connection with the makeovers of the cars. A large number of cars were transformed into sports cars so that sales can be increased. Disclaiming any biases in the selection of the top five coolest cars in the world, all of them were selected by the voters through their votes.
Moreover, these vehicles are uniquely chosen on the bases of votes and not on any technical or visual specifications. The result came out is stated below;
