the mostest of the most beautifull car for me.

the one car that makes me a into 4 year old kid,
the one car that makes me go weak in the knees,
the one car that makes me drool
the one car that makes me feel like being a poet

Most beautiful car ... ever!-ac-427-sc.jpg

the curves of this car are better than any i have seen,
this is powerful and beautiful as well.

god bless the brits at AC, god bless the legendary Shelby cobra and god bless ford for getting us this behemoth.

In love again.

Volvo made really (perceived-as) safe but dull-looking cars in general.IMHO the current S40/60/80 models and the XC series SUV's are definitely pleasing to the eye, but on an all-time beautiful cars list, well , err...ummm...

Default The Volvo 1800 SP

Wasif,

Very good choices, especially the Volvo.

A question : What is the connexion between the Volvo 1800 SP and British screen actor Roger Moore?

Regards

The best of the best from across the pond. Presenting the Mustang Fastback, the original TBird and three generations of the evergreen Corvette. Sublime

Not quite,

The Saint, as essayed by Roger Moore drove the Volvo 1800 SP in the TV series, broadcast in Britain during the sixties - very neat looking car.

SuperSelect,

As to the Maserati 5000GT, the first was the Shah of Persia; I prefer the 3500 GT Frua.

The kind of car that makes me go weak in the knees. They look even better in person. And the sound..............man!

To me, the most beautiful car ever is the Ferrari 288 GTO. Muscle, clean, proportionate and in blood red:

Up until the 308's I always felt it was the most beautiful of the modern cars, and then came along the 288 GTO to tweak that shape to a new level of detail. I too have seen the GTO in flesh and it is awesome. For modern cars this really is the most beautiful and the Aston DB9 comes second.

But the one car I find most beautiful of all cars ever built has to be that Voisin I posted in the beginning

You can say that again, DKG. The 308 & 288 bodies are near identical, and yet so different. Got a question for you : Which of the Porsche 959 or the Ferrari 288 GTO would be your pick? I've had countless debates on this with a friend of mine, and he still doesn't see the light

The only Ferrari "muscle car" ever built, yes. Forced induction 2.8 liter engine and the first production car to cross 300+ kph!
