Car manufacturers are under constant pressure to create new products while dealing with an ever evolving customer base.

The cool folkw at Budget Direct have created some really awesome infographics showing how seven different cars have evolved in design since their first generations launched decades earlier.

"These cars have managed to transcend that quagmire of meaninglessness, with names and models that have stood the test of time. These cars have become definitive and iconic and have remained in production for decades.

These long-lived models also provide a fascinating insight into car design history, with each new generation being representative of the era in which it was created.

"It’s for this reason that we decided to honour these longest lasting cars by illustrating their evolution over the years to become the vehicles we know today," said Budget Direct.
