My '41 Ford pick-up, stock as new, would be another unicorn, as I've only see two others that weren't hot-rodded, in some form or fashion.
A Unicorn is a mythical creature, one rarely spotted and thought of as extinct. A car Unicorn would tend to be the same - the kind of thing you didn't really think existed, but yet - there it is...
aka: an extremely rare car. So, since that is open for some interpretation, I say - let's see 'em all !
None of the judges or spectators at the 5 shows it was in last year had ever seen one outside of black and white pictures.
Even in the classic car world, this is a unicorn. It's out there to be seen. I drove it across Michigan last year and take it to cruises.
Then again, I live in upstate NY. G-bodies are practically unicorns here because they are all now mostly powder...
I think in the States some of the best unicorns are 50-60s European economy cars. Borg-Wards, DAFs, things like that. I've seen exactly one street driven DAF and one track-car DAF. The street car had a sticker that said "I'm Dutch, isn't zat vierd?"
A Tucker is a Unicorn, but I just saw 7 real ones (of 48, I believe) in one place at the Glenmoor Gathering. They kind of lose their Unicorn-ish appeal when you see so many of them in one place.
A '56 Continental Mark II might be considered a Unicorn. With only 3,000 made how many have seen one in person?
I dont have photographic evidence but a few years back I saw a silver Zonda street parked in Malibu while going up the 1 freeway. Another time during a return commute on the 5, a yellow Koenigsegg CCX zoomed by in opposing traffic.

The Continental Division of Ford leaned on tiny Porsche and made them stop using the name. The cars, for a very short period were then badged "European", which fit the holes already punched in the fenders. Those are the rare ones. I've seen a couple of European Coupes, but never a Cabrio. I have a picture of a European Coupe around somewhere. Those are true unicorns.
Ok, mass produced, but incredibly rare in Vancouver: MG TF, with Mexican plates, just sitting on a street in Coal Harbour.
