Well, Bugatti Veyron takes Pos. No. 1 in the Uncool car segment!
They hyped too much about the car before ever actually testing it!

Really cant argue much with the top three in that list. I respect the Miura for the reasons it was made. And Lambo sure did a darn good job with it.

I thought copying designs was Hyundai's job!

Absolutely! Ferrari buffs may be put off, but, this list is for real.

Lol dude.......the guy who owns the world's (apparently) 2nd coolest car wishes it was a ferrari......it has a darn ferrari sticker on it!!..look at the pic.... ridiculous.

I must say this was a pathetic "article", not only do they have wrong pictures, also wrong names.... and their taste aint so great either.

Ouch! Ignorant, unless we were supposed to read between the lines, and somehow come to the conclusion that it used a Dino V6. Nah, he was just ignorant. Also the Uncool Cars No.3 and No.2 are both called Fiat Doblo Diesel, parallel universes maybe?

I do agree with the Miura though, the most beautiful car ever, maybe they called up one of the car mags.

Thoroughly unprofessional work.They could not even get the pics right.This article was also sourced on Indiatimes US.
How embarassing can it get for India to not even know the cars properly?/Whoooo truly The Times of India.
