  • 7 Of The Rarest and Most Unique Cars!

  • Welcome to Interestingtop7s, on our previous vehicles videos we smashed a like goal of

  • over 3,000 likes!

  • If we can break 2,000 likes on this video, we will put out an all new video about more

  • epic vehicles!

  • With that said, lets get started!

  • You don't have to be a grease monkey to appreciate a good car - but in the veritable sea of 4-wheel

  • chariots, some shine a bit brighter than the others.

  • It can be a little difficult to TRULY rank the "rarest" cars of all time - with so many

  • variables like price, availability, design, age, manufacturing details and more - Rather

  • than attempt to classify these rare whips into just one defining detail - let's take

  • a look at some of their badass features that warrant the limited availability.

  • From classic motors to futuristic beauties - to the nearly unobtainable - today, let's

  • take a look at the seven rarest cars of all time.

  • Number seven - the Camaro ZL1.

  • The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe is often considered the "mother of all Camaros" by

  • discerning racers and collectors alike.

  • The ZL1's million dollar price tag comes for a couple of reasons: first, it's the last

  • model year of the very first generation of Camaros produced (that is, from 1967-1969).

  • Secondly, it had a wildly low total production run of only 69 cars - giving this classic

  • muscle car one more reason to justify that insane sticker price.

  • With unique designs (including an engine bay built to accommodate a wide array of different

  • engine types) and rear-wheel drive, it's no wonder why this is an auto auction and car

  • show mainstay - just make sure you check your bank account before bidding.

  • Number six - the Tucker 48.

  • Due to a widely publicized stock fraud scandal and a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation,

  • the news and general public favor doomed this Preston Tucker conceived vehicle after only

  • 51 cars were produced (between 1947 and 1948).

  • Although the notorious legal battles were directly responsible for the closure of Chicago-based

  • Tucker Car Corporation's in 1949 - he (and his company) were later acquitted, but the

  • damage had already been done.

  • Often selling for well over $1 million dollars, this interesting "could've-been" story is

  • immortalized in the 1988 movie, Tucker: The Man And His Dream.

  • Number five - the Aston Martin Bulldog.

  • No - you're not looking at a photo of the original DeLorean - even though at first glance

  • it looks like a dead ringer for the car popularized by the Back To The Future film franchise.

  • What you're seeing is the incredibly rare Aston Martin-built one-off testbed vehicle,

  • named The Bulldog, manufactured in Britain back in 1979.

  • Although the company initially planned to manufacture a limited run of 25, only a single

  • one made it out of the assembly line.

  • With a nickname that referenced Doctor Who, this 15 foot (or 4.5m) by 3 foot spaceship

  • was built to be driven left-handed - but its futuristic components inside (not to mention

  • the top speed of 190 miles per hour) are the primary reasons it was last purchased for

  • $1.3 million dollars.

  • Number four - the Talbot T26.

  • First displayed in public back in October of 1947 - the Talbot Lago Grand Sport T26

  • looks like something straight out of an old detective noir film.

  • However, this gorgeous piece of vehicular nostalgia is more than just delightful art

  • deco - only 12 were made in 1948, which was also the models' inaugural full year of production.

  • Talbot, as a manufacturer, began in 1903 as a standalone company - however due to a multitude

  • of ownership transfers, changes in direction and focus (and even a production halt from

  • 1960 to 1978), these sleek road trophies come with an estimated $2.5 million worth that

  • excited collectors have more than happily doled out.

  • We gotta say - this 40s throwback is worth the price if you've got the means.

  • Number three - the Oldsmobile F-88.

  • Technically categorized as a "dream car", the 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 was created by the

  • American manufacturer using initial sketches made by Bill Lange.

  • Even though this car never saw a wide or even limited run (only four of them were produced)

  • - historians consider the F-88 to be a pivotal moment in automobile history - one that, "changed

  • the style of cars for the new era".

  • Using the chassis of the Chevy Corvette and a similar fiberglass body - it houses an insane

  • 250 horsepower V8 rocket engine, just a few reasons why the last time it was purchased

  • for $3.3 million dollars at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction.

  • Now on display at the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum - it's truly a sight for sore eyes.

  • Number two - Ferrari 250 GT Boano Convertible.

  • Although the Ferrari 250 GT isn't what you'd consider to be "SUPER rare", the singular

  • convertible model certainly is.

  • It's exceptionally unique in its topless design since all other versions of the 250 GT manufactured

  • between 1953 and 1956 were roofed coupés - except for the one and only unit that sold

  • to New York car collector Robert Lee for $9,500 at the 1956 New York Auto Show.

  • Reportedly personally haggling the price with famous racecar drive Luigi Chinetti, he purchased

  • it for quite a steal and owns it to this day - making it the oldest Ferrari to still be

  • in the hands of its original purchaser.

  • Worth over $10 million dollars alone - it's been said the price would drive up exponentially

  • if Mr. Lee ever brought it to auction.

  • Number one - Rolls-Royce 15 hp .

  • Going back over a century ago - the automobile industry was a much different place.

  • When two (at the time) no-names called Charles Rolls and Henry Royce produced the Rolls-Royce

  • 15 hp in Manchester, England (in 1904), little did they know that that tiny run of six cars

  • would go on to forge an incredible path for the now luxury vehicle giant.

  • Since made, only one is known to still exist - and it tours automotive shows, car museums

  • and historical exhibits.

  • Although this three cylinder engine is only capable of puttering along at 39 MPH, it's

  • not about the performance - its literally one of (if not THE) oldest and rarest car

  • in existence.

  • In case you were wondering, it's been estimated to be worth a staggering $35 million dollars.
