How Much Of a Car Nerd Are You? Guess These Rare, Underrated Classics To Find Out!QUIZ 

Let's be fair, fanboys are amongst the most annoying creatures lurking the internet these days. Skylines, M3s, Supras, I'm tired of the hype those things get. And since you might be too, have a go (or perhaps learn) what these rare and VERY underrated cars are!


  1. 1 What's this extremely rare British racer?

    Hint- it's based on a popular sports car.
    1. Austin Healey 100
    2. Peerless GT
    3. Aston Martin DB2/4
    4. Triumph TR3 Pininfarina Coupe
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Peerless GT

    This rare thing is actually based on a Triumph TR3 and runs on exactly the same engine and running gear! Peerless was a niche British sports car maker until the mid sixties, where financial difficulties took place.
  2. 2 What is this rare '70s saloon car?

    Hint- it's powered by a big engine.
    1. Lamborghini Islero
    2. De-Tomaso Deauville
    3. Ferrari 400i
    4. De-Tomaso Mangusta
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    De-Tomaso Deauville

    Yep! The same guys who brought you the Pantera also made a 4-door supercar to rival the likes of Maserati and Jaguar! Powered by a small block Ford V8, this car was quick AND loud!
  3. 3 Guess what this very rare Japanese sports saloon is?

    Hint- you'll know it from PlayStation's Gran Turismo series.
    1. Nissan Silvia S10
    2. Isuzu 117 Coupe
    3. Nissan Skyline 2000GT
    4. Isuzu Bellet GT-R
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Isuzu Bellet GT-R!

    The Japanese answer to the RS Ford Escorts of Europe, this very pretty Bellet revived various modifications unlike the standard GT version Hence why the 'R' means racing! And only 1400 of these things were made...
  4. 4 Do you know what this fabulous sports coupe is?

    Hint- It was the mafia's car in The Italian Job!
    1. Fiat 132 Coupe
    2. Fiat Dino 2400 Coupe
    3. Ferrari 365 GTC
    4. Alfa Romeo Montreal
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Fiat Dino!

    Powered by a GLORIOUS 2.4 litre Ferrari V6, the Dino coupe is amongst one of my favourite cars of all time! Just stop what you're doing to just look at this thing! *drools
  5. 5 Since the theme is Italian, what is this rare and pretty thing?

    Hint- the badge will give you a clue.
    1. Alfa Romeo 2000 Berlina
    2. Alfa Romeo 1300 Gulia
    3. Lancia Flaminia Berlina
    4. Fiat 124 sedan
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Alfa Romeo 2000 Berlina

    This was in essence, the predecessor to the also very rare Alfa 166. It had a slightly bigger engine than it's Gulia sister, and was much rarer too!
  6. 6 Guess this very underrated 2+2 GT car!

    Hint- it's built all over the globe...
    1. Maserati Mexico
    2. Gordon Keeble GK1
    3. Facel Vega HK500
    4. Facel Vega Excellence
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Facel Vega HK500

    When I say all over the globe- the engine is from Chrysler, the body is Italian, and then it was handcrafted together by the French! You have to admit, it's also unmistakably stunning!
  7. 7 Do you know this piece of classic American steel?

    Hint- there's thousands of these things STILL serving as workhorses in the time capsuled land of Cuba!
    1. Ford Mainline sedan
    2. Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
    3. Plymouth Savoy
    4. DeSoto Diplomat
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Plymouth Savoy!

    Although it was made on the same line as the Diplomat, there were subtle differences, such as the front grille design. Oh, and in Cuba, there is estimated to be 750,000 old American cars still running! A big handful of those are Savoys!
  8. 8 And finally, name this Beemer!

    Note- this might annoy fanboys...
    1. 528i
    2. 735i
    3. 3.3 LI
    4. 2000 CS
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    3.3 LI

    This is the little known predecessor to BMW's flagship 7 series, it shared a lot of parts with the achingly cool E9 coupe, this saloon was coded the E3.
