The automotive world is rich in history and dates back more than 100 years. During that time many brands and models have been made, which now fetch a good dollar at auctions. Some of the cars are so rare due to few ever being built or decaying over the years. I have compiled some of the rarest classic cars still in existence today. Here are the rarest 7!
#7 1957 Jaguar XKSS
Estimated Value: $1.2 million
The history of the 1957 Jaguar XKSS is plagued with great losses. 16 cars were originally built but 9 were lost in a fire before ever reaching their owners.
#6 1928 Mercedes-Benz S-Type 26/180 Sports Tourer
Estimated Value: $4.81 million
The 1928 Mercedes-Benz S-Type 26/180 Sports Tourer was built for everyday use and for the track. There were 174 of these cars built but only 7 remain today.
#5 1941 Bugatti Type 41 Royale Kellner Coupe
Estimated Value: $22 million
6 models of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale Kellner Coupe were built but only 3 were sold. The engine of this car made it even more sought after and only one ever changed hands. It is one of the most expensive cars on this list.
#4 Rolls-Royce 10 HP
Estimated Value: $4.3 million
The Rolls-Royce 10 HP is one of the rarest cars in existence. Only 4 were built and all of them are still in good condition. This car is also the oldest Rolls Royce ever.
#3 1954 Packard Panther
Estimated Value: $825,000
Only 4 Packard Panthers were ever built and only 2 are in existence making this car very rare indeed. In its heyday one of these cars made 130 mph in Florida and was dubbed the Daytona Panther.
#2 1956 Aston Martin DBR1
Estimated Value: $22.6 million
It isn’t clear how many of the 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 cars still exist today, but only 5 were built. The car was a sensation as it beat out popular rivals Ferrari in Le Mans. That victory has made this car very famous.
#1 1954 Oldsmobile F-88(Tied)
Estimated Value: $3.24 million
Despite the 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 not being one the most expensive cars on this list, it is one of the rarest. Only one of these cars were ever made and it still exists today. The car can often be viewed at vintage car shows in the U.S.
#1 Rolls-Royce 15 HP(Tied)
Estimated Value: Unknown
The Rolls-Royce 15 HP was one of the first models ever made by Rolls Royce. It could make 40 mph in its heyday which was fast for cars of those times. 6 cars were built but only 1 has survived. Despite the car never being sold it is believed to be worth tens of millions of dollars.
