Probably the first time the buff has been accused of such shenanigans.
I meant to say B2, guys! Just let the 5 slip in every time, because that's what my head kept telling me to type. Lol. But it's B2 that I meant, of course! It's just a typo. I do make mistakes, I'm human!

* Again, not 40 years, but 20 years! Hahah!

Ow, the Veyron is an astonishing feat of engineering. Agreed. It's surely found a deserving place in my wishlist too, but gorgeous. Is it?

Would you buy the same car if it ran on a 2.0 Diesel mill, churning out a shade over 170hp and maxxed out at 200kmph?

This thread is all about form over function.

Then again, to one, his own

IMHO the Alfa Romeo 8C and even the Brera deserve to be on this thread.They are picture perfect.

And the Eurofighter Typhoon is one of the best looking planes flying today.It has been shortlisted by the IAF as one of the two contenders for the MRCA role.

Lots of beauties in this thread, but for me, the F-14 Tomcat would be one of those machines which just had great presence and brutish grace.

For me it's the Triumph Bonneville. Classic styling with modern underpinnings.
Just love the fake carbs.

Concorde is the ultimate drop dead gorgeous machine for me. Most of my fav machines are already in this thread. I feel that some machines were left out which are-

Maybach Exelero The most expensive car on Earth!

Aston Martin Rapide I might be alone but I think that this one looks way cooler than DBS.

So you've bought yourself the limited edition Bugatti Veyron Sang Bleu, and evidently, you have a lot of spare change left in the bank (not quite surprising), what would you do with it? Charity? Naa..

Get yourself the Boat to go with it!

MV Agusta would put the most beautiful women in world to shame, won't they? Say would you look at a women or these soul stirring piece of art?

I must add :

(though I do understand not all may suit the term 'Gorgeous')

1. Hummer. Any Hummer. (Shown my favourite 3 here - Alpha Wagon, H2 SUT & HX4 concept)
It atleast fulfills the 1st part of the 'Drop-Dead Gorgeous' condition.
