Are you an automotive enthusiast on the hunt to fill your feed with an assortment of impossibly cool cars to satiate those hunger pangs for automotive content? Well, look no further because we got you covered. Presenting a carefully curated list of our favourite automotive Instagram accounts, from one enthusiast to another.
With the absurd amounts of international wealth flowing through London, Penfold can stroll the streets and witness equally absurd rarities, a Koenigsegg Naraya here, a Ferrari LaFerrari there, that Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato above, just hanging out by the curb.
Shore takes stunning photos of cars you will likely never see, partly because you don’t live in Europe, where vintage Fiats and rare Renault Alpines skitter around back roads. But, it’s also because she shoots automotive unicorns like that 1967 Ferrari P4 above, of which only four were made and only one exists in original condition.
You might have heard that some well-off people live in and around Beverly Hills, which explains why this dealership peddles some of the most jaw-dropping vintage cars in existence. It’s a menagerie of cool, from that Ferrari 328GTS above to a pristine VW minibus to a voluptuous Jaguar XK140 from the waning days of Hollywood’s golden age. All of which you can buy, if you have Beverly Hills money.
Founded in 2011, Blacklist Lifestyle is a marketing and lifestyle brand catered to automotive enthusiasts looking to stay on top of the latest news in the arena. As far as their Instagram is concerned, expect a fast and furious supercar and hypercar vibe complete with high-end photography and drool-worthy builds.
Erturk shoots cars as if they are animals in the wild, like they don’t even know he’s there, and they’re just going through their daily motions in a sun-drenched, slightly faded urban jungle. Sure, he’s a professional, and they might probably be staged and timed and planned to the millimeter, but it’s nice to imagine all these stunning Jaguar XKEs and Ferrari 308s and Porsche 911s out living in the world, prowling the streets.
You wanna know what’s cool about this Instagram account run by Kevin McCauley? All of his pictures are taken with an iPhone. The quality is solid and the closeup shots are sweet.
What’s great about esteemed automotive photographers is their unique take and perspective of the automobile. Like viewing life from their lenses, not only do these artists boast some serious talent but sheer love for the machine. Peter Alyward is no different, taking a desaturated approach to his photography and focusing on track-ready-rides that would frighten the hell out of any civilian lucky enough to ride shotgun.
Somewhere in L.A., in a magical part of the city where it’s always sunrise or sunset, sits the headquarters of Petrolicious.com, a digital shrine to achingly beautiful vintage machinery. While true gearheads can peruse the site for in-depth interviews with people who seemingly own every air-cooled 911 and gated-shifter Ferrari in existence, the Instagram feed is good for a quick hit to hold you over. Oh, and for added value, follow Petrolicious editor Ted Gushue, who’s as handy with a Leica as he is blessed to drive so much of this historic metal.
If you were to take a dark and moody midwestern film and condense it into automotive-themed stills you’d most likely visualize something similar to what photographer Scott Brown has to offer across his Instagram page. Featuring unfiltered shots of classic automobiles, this moody account will certainly add a refreshing element to your news feed.
Singer Vehicle Design is driven by the singular vision of Rob Dickinson- a former car designer who then became a rock musician who now stands as one of the worlds foremost distillers of the essence of air-cooled Porsche.
