The Pivotal Decade

While modern cars may be better in terms of technology, safety and features, classic cars have a certain magic of their own.

Built in an era when craftsmanship, character and charm still meant something.

The 1950s was a decisive time for the European car market, recovering from the previous decade.

That period gave birth to a raft of manufacturers that significantly impacted the automobile industry.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta
Aston Martin DB4

BMC Mini
Citroen DS
Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
Jaguar XK140
Lotus Seven
Mercedes-Benz 300SL
Porsche 356
Porsche 550 RS Spyder
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud
Volkswagen Beetle

These cars had a powerful impact on the motorcar industry and left a legacy in design, engineering, and cultural influence.
