The Diablo is the prototypical sports car, and one which will certainly draw plenty of attention from envious individuals. Though it can’t be seen completely from the photo, the 2001 Lamborghini Diablo is also equipped with a beautiful pair of butterfly doors.

2. 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing

Earlier iterations of the 300 SL were racing cars. However, the 1955 version functioned more as a leisure vehicle. The gull wing doors instantly pop out as an attractive feature. The bright red seats are illuminated by the jet black presentation of the car’s tubular frame.

3. 1963 Aston Martin DB5

This two-door convertible garnered universal adoration after appearing as the preferred vehicle of the fictional cinematic hero James Bond. Bond is a smooth customer, and wants the best in sophistication. These are two apt characteristics of this car. Visually, it’s an exceptionally handsome vehicle. It’s not overly dramatic — nor is it busy. It’s simple yet exquisitely designed.

4, 1967 Lamborghini Miura

The 1967 version of this car is universally known as its earliest model. With brash vents sitting on the front hood, the 1967 Lamborghini Miura has a very exotic cadence in regards to its engine. This car in particular is proportioned immensely well.

5. 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa

The pièce de résistance in terms of beautiful cars is the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. In 2014, one of these sold for a record $39.8 million. Appearing like a black panther as it runs through the jungle, this ‘coke bottle’ design was revolutionary for its time.

All right, I guess I'll be the one to red neck it up a little bit. I think the XKE is probably the cream of the crop. But, I prefer American iron. Some of my choices.

The 1979 Pontiac Trans Am. I preferred the '79 over the other years because of the rear 3/4 view. Loved the tail lamps and bumper treatment with the flares and spoiler. And the Screamin' Chicken is always bitchin'.

The 1963/67 Corvette Stingray. Yeah, I know it's been mentioned already but always been a fave since I was little. The front view, the arc of the doors, the fastback roofline, all so far advanced from anything else at the time. It was the first car that just looked like it could fly to me.

The 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback. Whether in base, GT, or Shelby trim it's just a damn pretty little car.

1968 Chevrolet Camaro. I am aware that the '69 has always been the most popular of the first design but I preferred the look of the '67/68 better. It wasn't but the car looked smaller, more streamlined. With stripes or not, with the RS package or exposed headlamps I always though it had very clean lines.

Lots of beautiful cars and while this is certainly not in the top 5 I'd still put it in the top 25.

Not mine but the same year and color. I still have that cheesy Granddad landau roof that is going with the paint job. (frame off detailed paint)
Will do that end of next year.

Sorry guys, the argument is settled. The Ferrari 250 GTO has been ruled a work of art by the courts...

From the comments following that article:

Quote:
But I thought for something to be considered "Art" it had to serve no other purpose other than itself. Any Ferrari has multiple purposes. One can: drive it, work on your meditation techniques when it breaks down 20 minutes later, become a mechanic, use it to start fires or simply as a target.
