There are loads of Top 10 posts on sinister cars floating around the web, but most of them don’t consider the term “sinister” beyond looks. Like millions of other subjects regarding aesthetic design, I fully understand this is highly subjective, it’s just Gargling Gas thinks when the term “sinister” is applied to cars, it should also include “presence”.
Below, I’ve listed my personal Top 10 Stock & Sinister Cars, starting with 10 down to 6.
10. Mitsubishi EVO VIII FQ-400
This is an angry car with lots of sharp lines and dark orifices I daren’t insert a finger. This hooligan both “talks the talk” and “walks the walk”… in fact, the FQ-400 decimates the walk.
9. 1959 Cadillac Coupe Deville Series 62
The Series 62 Deville is a two-and-half ton monster with staring eyes and a menacing grin. Should Satan ever find himself in a car showroom with some cash to burn, only a black Deville will suffice. Despite resembling a mechanical bat ready to spread its acres of folded wings, this Caddy would leave Batman trembling and sobbing in the arms of Robin.
8. 1982 BMW E24 635 CSi
This car has the nickname, “Sharknose” due to its front end. Although the grille is certainly imposing, it’s all about those eyes.
If the saying “Your eyes are the windows to your soul” holds true, I don’t want anything to do with this beast.
7. 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
The sinister for me in the Charger comes from the hidden lights/grille; as a kid I loved the front end appeared as a gaping black intake – no British cars had or do feature this headlight flap.
6. The Mercedes-Benz 600
The 600 is four tons of German engineering that only understands police and army escorts and cheering crowds. This car possesses serious presence and an air of superiority only matched by its occupant sitting in the back. Psychopaths such as Saddam Hussain, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and Ferdinand Marcos have glided among their minions in the Mercedes 600.
Stay tuned for 5 down to 1 over the next few days!
