About This Quiz
Put it in reverse and travel back to these iconic cars throughout history!
From the Rolls-Royce Phantom of the 1920s to the Lamborghini Murcielago at the start of the 21st century, there have been dozens (if not hundreds) of iconic car models throughout the history of the automobile. While this may seem like a lot, it actually isn't; especially in the grand scheme of things when you consider that there have been thousands upon thousands of car models from a wide range of car manufacturers from around the world. Not every sports car has the endurance to reach iconic status; not every muscle car can tough it out over the years; and not every family car can be remembered fondly.
In this automotive quiz, we've taken a handful of some of the most iconic cars from both the 20th and 21st centuries and we're going to see if you have what it takes to correctly figure out the exact year when they were introduced! So are you ready to get into the modern and vintage aspects of car history? Then start your engines and let's get going!
