2005 Vanquish S


2005 New DB9

HA! I was going to also say Aston Martin (yeah, I'm biased - so what!?!?) But, you already said it, so I'm going with Maserati.

The Porsche 997 911S is the best looking car I have ever seen. I want to violate it in so many ways. Before I saw this vehicle, I had never felt really upset that I won't be able to own a particular car. It is extremely unlikely that I will ever even sit in one, and this fact is deeply disturbing

Okay, for real this time.



The first person that posts a pic of the modern GT-40 is getting a swift kick to the nizzuts. Ford's design team is simply a knock off group.

Ferrari, BMW, and Lamborghini have pretty much always had classic designs.

Aston as well.

From an Auto Design standpoint I would even be willing to go and say Audi. Audi's have always been fairly simple with some quite classy and clean designs. I can't think of any that are absolutely terrible but perhaps I'm not thinking far back enough.

Aston cars are like Porsche, Jaguar and Rolls/Bentley, they all look pretty much the same.

The one who has consistently pushed the envelope and reinvented itself decade after decade resulting in continually beautiful cars with few zingers beloved worldwide is BMW.
Pick a decade, any decade, and you'll be hard pressed to find more than one or two ugly duckling BMW's nor any model that can be mistaken as having been from the decade or three prior though always having an unmistakeable BMW look/style. Best yet they commonly offer a selection within the means and dreams of every man be he prince or pauper.

Honorable mention goes to Lamborghini, Ferrari and Ford.

Default My Pick

My vote 04 Koenigsegg CCR:

http://www.rsportscars.com/eng/cars/koenigsegg_ccr.asp





I mean the guy made his 1st one in his barn.

That to me is art. He didn't have the modern technology & top notch employees of Ferrari. Porche, Ford, Lambourghini, etc.

They are all fine cars that I really like but this car is an art

Other notables: Chrysler ME four-twelve, Porsche Gemballa GTR750 EVO-R or , Ford GT, Bugatti EB110 or 111


If more then 1 then this: Porsche Gemballa GTR750 EVO-R

http://www.gemballa.com/indexe_bak.html

or: Porsche Techart GT Street S

I know it's nitpicking a bit but I don't like the grill shape on the Aston's pictured. It's doesn't make a nice oval or kidney or anything else shape; it's a little funky.

I like Ferraris. I think in 40 years the 360 Modena is going to be sexy and clean the same way a 250 looks sexy and clean today.

Lambos are cool but not timeless.. a Countach looks old-school cool but it looks funky like a transformer, not clean and sexy. Porsches are pretty but a very functional looking, and they don't really ever come up with new designs (at least for the 911) just smoothed-over evolutions.

I still believe the most beautiful car in the world is the McLaren F1 LM. It's design simply cannot be beat.
