Default The most beautiful cars ever made...

These are my picks:

1. 1967 Mustang Shelby KT500

There are classic cars… and then there’s the 1967 Shelby GT500. Compactly built, the vehicle’s impressive initial burst allows for it to effortlessly scoot down the roads with the greatest of ease. In a sense, this vehicle holds the sensibility of a leisure car with the ‘cool factor’ of a sports car.

2. 1965 Maserati 3500 GT

A boot lid — coupled with a hard top — allows for the 1965 Maserati 3500 GT to have quite the presentation. The angular front grille gives the car depth, and the expansive hood makes the cabin sufficiently compact.

3. 1987 Porsche 959

A twin-turbocharged engine enabled the 1987 Porsche 959 to be the fastest legally-made sports car in the world during its inception.

4. 1963 Jaguar XKE
Name:  1963jaguaretype.jpg

Size:  39.7 KB
Jaguar vehicles are widely appreciated for crystal-clear lines, smooth finishes, and a collectively dynamic presentation. It’s absolutely perfect for cruising around town in — or revving up the engine on a remote road during a Sunday afternoon.

5. 1964 Shelby AC Cobra

This is a near flawless car. The glossy nature of the supercharged black simply pops with chrome finishes and a bold front grille. The over-sized tires add support to the overall body of the vehicle — yet also work well with the remainder of the constructed design.

More pics will be posted by me...but in the meantime show your "Most Beautiful Cars"!

Being a Toyota Geek, I have to go with this:

Of course, always followed by my '98.

Edit: Dear God these things are getting into the stratosphere:

Cool car for sure! He's also got a 61 that's about the same, totally OEM.

The XKE is my favorite "old car", but this new Ferrari P80/C one-off is the most beautiful modern car I've ever seen.

It was Enzo Ferrari who said of the XKE, "It's the most beautiful car ever made."

How about these?:

1. 1957 Thunderbird

There’s perhaps not another car better embodying American spirit more so than the 1957 Ford Thunderbird.

2. 2018 Bugatti Chiron

The 2018 Bugatti Chiron is like many that came before it: Impressive. The muscular build and widely fashioned hood only accent the mass power it holds

3. 1993 Jaguar XJ 220
Name:  1993jaguar.jpg
Views: 96
Size:  24.4 KB
Rather than using carbon fiber panels, the 1993 Jaguar XJ220 opted instead to be equipped with an aluminum base for the body. Conventional doors were also chosen rather than the ‘trendy’ scissor doors.

4. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette

The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is stylish beyond belief. Appearing similar to a powder blue spaceship, the back gate ridges up beautifully. The back windows offers a dynamically different shape than the average vehicle.

5. 1938 Talbot Lago

The 1930’s offered an interesting period when it came to car manufacturing. Without question, the 1938 Talbot-Lago embodied the sophisticated nature of French culture through its creator Alexandre Darracq.

He was right then and sorry Spence but a Mustang? Granted a pretty car but Enzo's comment is still valid if I'm writing the check.
