Like the DB5 above, some car models are just timeless. Their legend is more than the physical car itself. The Muira fits that category perfectly. Imagine what it would have been like at the at the 1966 Geneva Motor show, where the prototype P400 debuted. Marcello Gandini’s sleek styling will forever remain utterly revolutionary.

With the inevitable demise of the Defender production, the original Land Rovers are gaining in popularity and are increasing in value. What was once considered an agricultural tool is now darn right cool.
