If you are a gentleman of means, then chances are you’ll have a tendency to dabble with the finer things in life. A supercar may well be on the agenda, but rather than settle for a generic new Ferrari, you may have a yearning for something more individualistic, and perhaps, cool. That’s where these cars come in. Inspired by automobiles of the past, these machines look vintage yet they are as reliable as anything straight out of the factory, thanks to brand spanking new parts, engines and interiors. These are the coolest cars on the market.
