    Top 10 Scariest Cars of All Time

    1. Reliant Robin

    You may recall an episode of Top Gear when the Reliant Robin rolled over at every corner it took. It maybe funny to watch but it’s not exactly relaxing to drive knowing that at any moment you could be scraping along the road on your side.

    1. Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser

    Favoured by dictators alike the Mercedes-Benz 600 has enormously imposing bodywork. It was one of the most luxurious and obnoxious cars in history and went out of production in 1972.

    1. Audi Quattro Sport S1 Group B

    When engines in Rally cars evolved to be as powerful as F1 cars, Rally Group B was born. They proved to be too much for human abilities and caused several fatal crashes which led to the FIA banning Group B forever.

    1. Batmobile (Tumbler)

    Even though Batman is the saviour of Gotham, the Tumbler he drives around the city looks incredibly menacing and could cause some serious damage to anyone it its way.

    1. Maybach Exelero

    Known as the “8 million dollar car” the Maybach Exelero has a dark-side – it resembles Darth Vader’s helmet.

    1. 1966 Lincoln Continental from Animal House (1978)

    Known as the Deathmobile, it would certainly turn a few heads with its shenanigans; may even send some people running for the hills with its devilish looks.

    1. AC Cobra 427 competition roadster

    Originally produced in the 1960s, the legendary 427 is arguably the most venomous out of all the AC models. Only 23 were ever produced.

    1. RenaultSport Clio V6

    The V6 hits 60mph in just 6.2 seconds, when released it was the most powerful hot hatch with a rear engine in the boot and just two seats, the perfect recipe for a scary ride.

    1. Plymouth Fury

    Stephen King created perhaps the most famous haunted car in literature, the blood-red, bloodthirsty Christine.

    1. TVR Cerbera Speed 12

    With a V12 800bhp engine under the bonnet and a weight of only 1,100kg the TVR Cerbera Speed 12 is a monster and was deemed too dangerous to be on the road.
