Candidate for most beautiful car...?

37 posts in this topic

In Edinburgh city centre this morning on my way in to work. It puts the Aston designs to shame. Utterly, drop-dead gorgoeus lines and an engine note that one could listen to all day long:

Gorgeous, only bit I'm not keen on is the front grille, sticks out too far.

But then if it didn't I suppose it'd just look like a clone of an Aston or Jag, both of which are gorgeous too!

JC? We are in full agreement.

I am not a fan of the new Aston designs, whereas on this, the tick boxes aren't big enough!

Genius! +++

Time for an underwear change. :o

One parks outside the village pub every couple of weeks (Sunday lunch job) and it looks and sounds (it's running a Tubi exhaust) loverley.

And it's got the reg no PH** WAR, which is the only thing that let's it down.

A bit too close to this?

However, having said that, it is probably the nicest & coolest car you can buy at the moment, although personally I'd have an XKR with an aftermarket facelift & a few other tweaks.

Interesting that some don't like Astons compared to the Maser as the fundamentals (and possibly more) are very similar, almost like comparing Anonimo to Panerai. If someone told me that Henrik Fisker had penned both I wouldn't be at all surprised, even though that's presumably not the case.

As for most beautiful car - no way Jose. Too much glasshouse & possibly too much length and girth and so doesn't even compare to other Italian efforts, let alone anyone else's. Nice as it is, I can think of quite a few better looking cars.

The Mazzer is beautiful, but a tad 'pouty' if I'm being hyper-critical...

I love these...

Neither of those do anything for me, I'm afraid.

The only German thing I would put in the list is the Porsche Carrera GT, but more from an engineering beauty point of view.

But it was made ages ago and isn't a current beauty :(

Just loverly +++

The MD here has got a masser GT - they are alright but I would still take an Aston looks-wise over it.

CGT - agreed over its utterly gorgeous looks.

Sounds how it should and driven how it was designed to be driven!

Lovely popping!

Saw the Masser GT yesterday on the motorway.

It was stunning. Saw numerous Fezza 430's and newer models, Astons, but nothing comes close to the GT. Until a Quattroporte came past..........

Sorry Brab - yours is second fav :o

Saw a V10 S8 too. Very subtle. Comes 3rd on my list.

I saw a bright yellow Quattroporte on the Royal Mile yesterday and IMO, it didn't suit it. Sounded great, though.

Phew this thread is about about cars! Wasn't sure I wanted to look in here as the main index has been showing this for a couple of days

Candidate for most beautiful...

I reckon the GranTurismo wins as the facelift on the XKR didn't go too well at the front, gills? The rear has been improved though and am I the only one who thinks that the jag's interior design is rubbish for a car in this segment? I'm sure it is good quality but it looks far too basic for me.

Saw a black Maserati in Twickenham yesterday morning, it sounded glorious but the guy was driving it like a prick... :coffee:

^^^^

Now that blue Maserati is truly stunning! Very classic. I have to admit that I don't much like the other Maserati body styles of recent years. I love that nose!
