The Coolest Cars in the World

Here’s a list of some of the coolest cars of 2021

If you are in the market for a car, you will be surprised at the number of offerings you get in every single segment. Right from your Nissan Versa to a Ferrari F8 Tributo; there is competition in every segment. Whether you’re into classic cars, imported models or luxury items, you will be spoilt for choices. But, not every car you see is a cool one. There are a number of factors in determining whether a car is cool or not. There’s the exterior, the interior, the performance, and most importantly, it’s every individual’s opinion. You may or may not agree with some of the entries here, but here’s a look at the coolest cars of 2021.

Aston Martin DBX to be built at St Athan

Aston Martin DBX to be built at St Athan

Aston Martin already created 200 jobs by opening its new Wales factory located on the grounds of former military airfield

Aston Martin may be late to the SUV party but the British automaker is doing everything it can to ensure that the DBX will be a success right out of the box. It’s even opening a brand-new facility that will, at first, focus only on making the DBX before also assembling all of the Lagonda models. The new factory located in Saint Athan, Wales, will eventually employ up to 750 people, most from around the Vale of Glamorgan area.

While production for the DBX will kick-off in earnest in the first half of 2020, Aston Martin used the unveiling of its new plant to also show to the press what has to be the production-ready version of its SUV, albeit covered in red-and-black camouflage. The version we’ve seen testing at the Nordschleife and the Arctic Circle among other places in the past year or so was a prototype but the body we can see on the new mule displayed at Saint Athan is the real deal that people will see in late 2019 when the official launch event will take place.

The Aston Martin DBX will soon become the newest member of a very popular niche, one that was, basically, made popular some 15 years ago when Porsche launched the Cayenne. The luxury and sports car establishment might’ve laughed at the news that Stuttgart’s sports car maker, famed for building the 911 for decades, lost its way and started building SUVs but, soon enough, the market demanded more super-fast and super-luxurious options and Bentley, Maserati, Land Rover, and even Lamborghini answered the call of the masses and came forth with their own SUVs. Ferrari is also expected to entertain its wealthy clientele with a high-riding Prancing Horse named the Purosangue, so Aston Martin’s decision to create the DBX feels normal once you take a step back and look at the whole picture. On top of that, sales of these models are what enable these manufacturers to continue to make sports cars and supercars.

Aston Martin DBX May Preview Future GT Crossover

Aston Martin DBX May Preview Future GT Crossover

One of the many surprises at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Aston Martin DBX Concept not only appeared out of the blue, but it may also preview a future production model. At least this is what Autocar made out from what Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said, so you may want to sprinkle some salt on this information.

"A concept car such as this should, in my view, challenge conventional thinking and explore the art of the possible. In the DBX Concept, I believe we have created a new type of luxury car that can not only broaden the appeal of Aston Martin to a whole new generation of customers, but sit with pride alongside the rest of our range," Palmer said at the model’s unveiling. Unlike the Aston Martin Lagonda Concept from 2009, which was almost universally panned, the DBX follows a new approach to the crossover genre.

Instead of starting from an SUV and adding some sports car credentials, the DBX concept is more of a high-bodied GT coupe in nature, its SUV genes being less predominant but still there. According to Autocar, Andy Palmer confirmed that there are plans to introduce a car "into the space occupied by the DBX in the future." Whether that model would slot in the Aston Martin or Lagonda lineup remains to be seen, but its bespoke nature would probably make it better suited for Lagonda, alongside the Taraf.
