An Excalibur automobile, an early example of a neoclassic

A neoclassic, in automobile circles, is a relatively modern car that is made somewhat in the image of the classic cars of the 1920s and 1930s (as defined by, for example, the Classic Car Club of America) without being necessarily intended as a full replica.

The term originated with the Excalibur automobile of the 1960s in the United States, and has been applied to a number of makes (i.e. Panther, Zimmer, Clénet, etc.) since.
