Cool cars we miss – part 2


This is part two of top 10 cool cars we miss, click here to see part 1. Now part two is getting more and more interesting with three small-little-cute-yet-powerful Japanese sports cars including the Mazda RX-7 FD, Nissan Silvia 200SX, and the crazy powerful Toyota Supra.

6. Mazda RX-7 FD (1992-2002)

Mazda RX-7 FD
“You will never know what is small yet powerful until you give a ride on the Mazda RX-7 FD”, one of our editor in Malaysiaminilover said this. Have you ever ride on one? If not, you must try it once in a lifetime. The sound from the exhaust coming out from the rotary engine will definitely make you fall in love with this car crazily. It will not only a car we miss, it will be a car that all the sports cars lovers will 100% miss it!

7. Nissan 180SX/200SX (1989-1998)

Nissan 180SX
The Nissan 180SX come into automobile world in the late 80’s in 1989. The original look with original bumper doesn’t look like a car that will go sideway in cool style until all kind of aftermarket parts come out including Uras bodykit, SSR sport rims, and among others car parts that turn this car into a monster drift machine and often appeared in the list of top 10 drift cars. Production stopped in 1998 and replaced with Nissan Silvia S14 and then S15. However, the Nissan 180SX is irreplaceable and we will definitely miss it so much! It is a car that will regret if you sell it.

8. Toyota Supra Mark IV (1978-2002)

Toyota Supra
“Ladies and gentlemen, now it is the Toyota SuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuPRA!” This is how the commenter starts to talk whenever there is a Supra coming out in any kind of events. Other than the outlook, the design of the engine (2JZ-GE and 2JZ-GTE) is a huge success for Toyota.

9. Mini Cooper (1959-2000)

Mini Cooper MK1
Cool cars don’t mean have to have huge engine or any V8. The classic Mini Cooper have only 1275cc engine but it is the three times winner for the Rally Monte-Carlo in 1965, 1967, and 1966. It is small and cute but it is definitely a cult icon. You can always see the Mini on t-shirts or being used to embellish restaurants or shops.

10. Jaguar E-Type (1961-1975)

Jaguar E-Type
The design of the British made Jaguar E-Type (UK) or also known as Jaguar XK-E (US) is one of a kind. The car simply look gorgeous even without the engine. It was ranked number one in the Daily Telegraph’s list of the “100 most beautiful cars” of all time, and indeed, we agreed. Other than that, The E-Type also stands at number one in the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s by Sports Car International magazine. The silk design and the egg shape make it a perfect sports cars. What else can we say?
