On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me…..a partridge in a F-40!
Wouldn’t it be great to wake up Christmas morning and find twelve exotic and eclectic vehicles under the tree? The following cars (and motorcycles) sure would make for a very unusual garage! Our curated list below is a money-is-no-object selection.
Which cars would be on your Santa wish list? We welcome your comments, feedback, and ideas for holiday dream-car selections!
Twelve cars we’d love to have under the Turtle Garage tree this Christmas:
#1 1985 Ferrari GTO: Pininfarina’s best work.
#2 1986 Porsche 959: The car that shook the world.
#3 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 Convertible: Possibly the most elegant Mercedes of the modern era.
#4 1956 Dual Ghia: A rare and quirky car, you had to be a superstar to even get on the list to buy one.
#5 1988 Ferrari F40: Who would not want this iconic 40th anniversary Ferrari in the garage?
#6 1960 Alfa Giulietta SZ Sprint Zagato: Pacer-like styling but with the magic touch from Zagato.
#7 1937 Unrestored Horch 853: The top of the top in 1930’s Germany—and original.
#8 1984 Audi Sport Quattro: The car that started the all-wheel-drive revolution.
#9 1934 Packard Twelve 1107 Dietrich: Even today, this car says you’ve arrived!
#10 1955 Alloy Gullwing 300 SL: Gullwing SL’s are not rare—Alloy Gullwing SL’s are rare!
#11 1971 Lamborghini Muiria SV: The sexiest car ever made?
#12 1933 Alfa-Romeo 8C Zagato: Every tycoon collector has one.
And three “stocking stuffer” motorcycles (to grow on!)
1922 Megola: You won’t see many of these. The quirky Munich-built motorcycles have a rotary five-cylinder engine inside the front wheel!
1938 Brough Superior SS100: The legendary beast that was the final ride of Lawrence of Arabia.
1954 Vincent Rapide: No serious motorcycle collector can do without one.
