I've seen them. The white one belongs to Bollywood star Ajay Devgan.
The new Quattroporte looks Good Lord Gorgeous.

My idea of beauty is slightly different : I prefer a car which is not self conscious, which does not 'try' to attract attention to itself but is to a certain extent, self effacing.

The closest example that I can cite ( from traditional Test Match cricket) is the batting style of David Gower and VVS Laxman, all grace, elegance and understated.

That's why cars like the Ghibli, Daytona, Espada, DB4 and Marmon 16 get my nod over the more stylish and flamboyant vehicles.

Will put in material on the Ghibli soon.

Doesn't seem that there were / are any Ghiblis in India. How about the entire subcontinent? [Remembered seeing a 1950s Merc 190 SL in front of the Pan Pacific Hotel in Colombo in 1998.]

The Lotus Elan (original) and the Lotus Elite are also pretty good looking cars.

The Elise was also quiet a looker.
