I never have a favorite or a “most ever” of anything, really, but I wish Chrysler had put the Chronos into production.

The older model Jag.

I don’t know about most well-designed, but the 55 Chevy Bel Air is one hot piece of chrome.

a classic Rolls Royce (sorry; pc won’t do links) is to me what “a beautiful” car looks like.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But good design is priceless.

The 1937 Delahayne for sure can drive me around on a Sunday afternoon! WOOF!

A bit fond of the Z8 and original Viper Coupe

The 1980’s IMSA V-12 Jag GTP. It not only looked good, it sounded good. Watching Davy Jones power that through the s’s at Watkins Glen was amazing.

The Porsche 918 Spyder.

@mrentropy I love the Chronos. Never could decide between it and the Caddy Sixteen.

Can’t believe neither one of those cars made it to production.

ragingloli's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies
Those two seem hideous to me. Especially that “chronos” thing.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

I wish I could have been conceived in either one of them.

ragingloli's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies
If I were a car designer (I do consider myself an artist), these two would have never left the pencil stage (except on their way to the rubbish can), much less advance to a physical prototype.

Perhaps as a Gumpert fan, a Bugatti is more to your liking…

Old Bugatti

New Bugatti

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies I don’t know, unless they figure nobody would go for a car that’s got an enormous hood in front.

It must have something to do with the mysterious falling testosterone levels in American males.

Design eh?

A no-brainer.

Road Legal:
McLaren F1 LM, papaya. I would take #6 for sure, but in a pinch I’d choose the new one.

Any car:
MP4–4 MP4–25

(I still like the Cheetah.)

I think it was the 2007 Saleen S7 TT

ipso's avatar

Ahhhh that 458 Italia ^ is breathtaking!

Also

After all these years I still cant get over the stunning perfect timeless beauty of the 936 body series of the Porsche 911 (1993–1998). It’s been a long crush with that girl.

There is something magical in the hips and lines. T&A, to be sure. And of course the front end is so light, and darty, and clean to drive – as all 911s are.

I remember a car mag review about the Turbo when it came out:

~“The engineers came up with the ultimate answer to whatever the question was.”

I love that.

When I’m really really hungry, this is the most beautiful car in the world. Now available in smaller bite sized portions!

@py_sue : that car is SEXYYYY… kinda turned me on a little bit

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

@Samantha_Rae It’s Steve Mcqueen’s car from Bullitt. I’ve been a classic Mustang lover from an early age, but that one cinched it. Ohhh, so, so pretty.

Fred931's avatar

@py_sue @Samantha_Rae I thought this was the Bullitt Mustang, or were you just pointing out what the production Shelby looked like in ‘68?

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

@Fred931 You are right. That is the car from the film. That Highland Green, though, nuh uh for me. I like a nice soft blue, personally.

wolfram's avatar

The classic Porsche 911 Carrera is a fine example of the bezier curve used to maximize speed. You can take this stock car to the track without modification and it will give the Ferraris, Lamborghinis and the rest of them a run for their money. Its back-end weight is its secret weapon which can be unleashed in the corners.

Aston Martin DB9

I’ll also admit a weakness for the new Challenger.
