Lamborghini Miura SV is one of the prettiest cars of all time.

That's a keeper! 1 of 320 in the U.S.

458 and 488. Both lust worthy, the 458 appeals more to me because the lack of the large rear intake. This brings me to the one issue with the ME C8 test cars we have seen. It's not necessary the leading edge of the intake, it's the way it comes off the rear quarter at the top, this area.


That has been on all the cars we have seen, could be fake, it certainly looks uninspired to me.

To me, the 488 is the best looking mid engine design of all time.

I agree although the La Ferrari is possibly more stunning, especially in person. However the cost is off the charts......

Good investment. If you purchase one now for the current value of $3mil., you would double your money in a year. Peanuts for a guy like you.

Oooof.

Kind of an itch to pick up a 308 and get a GTO kit for it. Those cars are gorgeous.

IMO The La Ferrari is incredible but for pure styling, the 488 is the sexiest modern car.

Your garage styling is amazing. Who did that floor? Love that it covers the foundation as well.

I agree. 488 in person is an amazing sight, especially when its in motion and not just sitting in a parking lot.

There are a lot of good looking cars. My list:

Gallardo
Huracan
458/488
LaFerrari
McLaren 570, 650, 720
918 Spyder
Ford GT

Well dam its easier just to say i like anything i CAN'T afford!!!

I'm partial to form following function and one of the most amazing looking ME cars that I love to look at is probably the least practical car on the planet...


BAC Mono for the uninitiated.

The proportions of this AM are not only obsolete for AM's FE cars, but completely wrong for their ME car. A C5 and a C7 is the way to go for FE and ME cars alike.
