About This Quiz

Ask 10 people what they think the coolest car ever made was and you'll probably get 10 different answers. What's cool is a matter of opinion but, in the automotive world, there are a few characteristics that undoubtedly make a cool car. High-performance exotic cars make the list straight away and, of course, cars get major cool points for style. And most ultra-rare cars are also seen as cool, even if they're not particularly stylish. Or, for instance, if a car has a fascinating story revolving around its production, it has the potential to become cool.

High-performance specs are cool and, in this sense, there weren't any cars cooler than Lamborghini's Miura when it launched in 1968. It's generally considered to be the world's first supercar. And if you want to talk rare, cars don't come much rarer than Ferrari's 250 GT California SWB Spider, of which just 55 were ever made.

Maybe technology is what fascinates you. If so, you probably thought Tesla's Model 3, which had a 220-mile range, got to 60 mph in less than six seconds and cost just $35,000 was one of the coolest cars on the planet.

Take this quiz now and let us find out what piques your interest, and we'll tell you the coolest car you've ever driven!
