Default My short list : timelessness

Lads,

Further to my earlier post where I submitted the following, in no, particular order :

Aston Martin DB4
Jaguar Type E
Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Touring Berlinetta
McLaren MP4 -12C
Lamborghini Espada /(Marzal concept)

along with the Lamborghini Miura and the Voisin C 15

here is my definitive (for tonight) list.

My reasons for the selection is the element of timelessness that each one of these beauties manages to evoke, in the eyes and mind of yours truly.

So, in no particular order, here goes :

1. Aston Martin DB4
2. Aston Martin DB9
3. Jaguar E Type
4. Jaguar XJ
5. Ferrari Daytona
6. Marmon 16
7. Peerless V16
8. Alfa Romeo 8C 2900
9. Lamborghini Espada/(Marzal concept)
10. Voisin C15 Saloit ( bodywork different from the usual Voisins because it was not designed inhouse by Voisin)
11. McLaren MP4 -12 C
12. Maserati Ghibli
13. Maserati 3500 GT Frua

Some pics are attached below. First the DB4.

Comments please!

Coming up, the Ferrari Daytona - simple, elegant and very potent.

P.S. : The last post should have been titled timelessness 3 & 4, sorry.

Next are the vintage beauties - the ethereal Marmon 16 and the peerless Peerless V16. No meretriciousness here, simple design, very high technical standards.

Next is the Lamborghini Espada and the Marzal concept from which the Espada was born. The Espada was a 2+2 GT, sleek and very modern for the late 1960s. It still is.

Thanks to DKG I have had the opportunity to savour the Voisin C15 Sailot of 1934. The design is not by Voisin, so this has no hard edges but is curvaceous instead. Not an extraordinary car technically though, but delightful for the senses.

Next up, a modern car in every which way. In the concepts, in its execution and in its 'not-in-your face- supercarness', a car for the track as well as for the road. Behold the Mclaren MP4-12C.

Timeless.

Next are two amazing Masers. I've always loved Masers because of their rich racing legacy. The following two are indeed special. First the Ghibli. Simple, classic, simply classic.

If you ask me for a Desert Island choice, this would probably be it.

I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight.

You know, even though I'm a huge McLaren buff, I can't really applaud McLaren for this one. It simply doesn't have enough identity like the SLR and F1 did. And what's with that name??? Great car, but just not quite there to be among the greatest ever.
