    Top 10 Scariest Cars of All Time

    Preparing for Halloween? Take a look at our list of the top 10 scariest cars. These cars are feared by drivers and onlookers alike – be afraid, very afraid!
  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.

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. Company Number: 1108986

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
