Most popular Motors of 2019

A $1.8m McLaren, James Bond-style Aston Martin and Logan Dodds’ campervan have been named our hottest vehicles of 2019. 

2. Aston Martin

This year saw high performance vehicles and immaculate classics dominate the top 10 most viewed listings, with two very rare, and very expensive, vehicles taking out the top two spots. 

The most viewed vehicle of last year was a 2019 McLaren Senna, which appeared onsite for a cool $1.8 million. The victory grey coupe clocked up just shy of 146,000 views as eagle-eyed motoring enthusiasts around the country raced to site to check it out. Pulling up in second place was a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 - the model made famous by Sean Connery in the James Bond film Goldfinger. This beauty comes with a $1.2 million price tag and is still up for grabs having drawn 141,000 views so far.

While not technically high performance or a classic, a campervan also made the list. Social media influencer Logan Dodds became something of a star a few years back after a travel video he made went viral. His effort to find his ‘old girl’ a new home generated nearly 54,000 views.

The quirkiest vehicle to make the top 10 was a 1971 Bond Bug, one of just two in the country. Other classics to pique Kiwis’ interest included a collection of Landrovers, a 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback, a 1972 Nissan Skyline Hakosuka GT-R and a 1974 Mazda RX3. 

9. Ferrari F12

Then there was a 1965 Triumph Spitfire that came with a very honest description that while it looked great, it would never pass a warrant in its current state and would be ‘really really dangerous in a crash’. It was ready to be picked up from Uncle Maurice, who is a good talker, in Martinborough.
