Default Winding Road: Ten Most Beautiful Cars of the Decade

http://www.windingroad.com/articles/...src=Nextscreen

Their list.

Mercedes-Benz CLS
Maserati GranTurismo
Aston Martin DB9
Alfa Romeo 8C Competizone
Audi R8
Nissan 350Z
Audi TT (2000-2006)
Lamborghini Murciélago
Ferrari 599
Porsche Cayman

This is one of those eye of the beholder things obviously, but I can't see the TT being on there. And the 350Z is a pretty weak choice as well. I also think the 599's predecessor the 550/575 body style is better looking than the 599.

Yadira should be on that list.

Everyone enjoyed riding her.

Someone over ther likes ugly cars. The 370z is better looking than the 350z and even it doesn't deserve to be on the list. Same goes with the new TT vs the old one. And the S5 is better looking than all the Audis on the list.

The 350z or TT should have been replaced by the Exige/Elise

Nothing American? No Ford GT?

I don't know if the 350z needs to be there, it's a great looking car, but i don't think it's one of the prettiest.

Disagree I think the TT deserves the spot for it's design, agree the 599 is pretty weak as a spot holder but then again I don't think ANY Ferrari from this decade desrves a spot, great cars yes but don't let thAt confuse you that they are beautiful. Last really good looking one was F355 whih prdates 2000. Agreed definitely on the DB9 and 8C

Whoever suggested Koenigsegg, I forgot about that, great suggestion to bump off the Ferrari.

I'm betting some toolbag will suggest the Veyron because they confus speed+power+price for beauty.

Whoever suggests the Lotus Exige or Elise, uh no.

350Z hmmm, I can't think of any other Japanese car this decade that comes even close o makng it on the list for looks alone (again some moron will chime in on GTR)

I agree the 350z is a litle weak for Top 10, but definitely Top 20

Ford GT is nice but again, Top 20 not Top 10. I can pretty safely say nothing made by Audi or BMW deserves a top 10 spot from this decade either

how the heck did the 350Z get on that list??

ive never thought of it as being a good looker... it tries to be edgy and curvy but in the end it just doesnt work...

the 370z is far better looking.

I think the R8 looks like ass with the different colored side panel. When it'spainted the same color, its gorgeous.

Because the CGT is absolutely hideous, like that nasty billet grill on the Astons, whoever did that needs to be forced into exile in France...except he has to swim the channel to get there.

The Cayman is hideous IMHO and the TT looks dated, like a VW Beetle that was sqweezed from the top and pulled at each bumper.

Also, I think the G35 looks WORLDS better than the 350Z.
