The 28 NOT most beautiful cars in the world Part 1

The 28 NOT most beautiful cars in the world Part 1

Ok, "the most beautiful cars in the world", is a topic that's been thrashed over and over so I'm not going to talk about it. Why? Because it's so subjective and everyone has a different idea. You know the old saying, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". So following, is my top 28 (and I struggled to get it down to that) list of cars that I (subjectively) consider the "coolest" cars in the world; and when I say cool I mean, they move me in some way. The cars I've picked make my world a better place and even though I'll probably never see most of the cars on this list let alone drive them, I feel good just thinking about them. The list is a little Ferrari heavy; Ferrari's are the reason I fell in love with cars in the first place. So without further ado and in no particular order here is my list of the 27 coolest cars in the world.

Any Aston Martin

Aston Martins just drool class. Aesthetically they are near perfect. What car enthusiast could say no to one. British engineering at its finest, with interiors that deserve a showing at the Louvre. How could you want more. And the sound, oh the sound. Whether the V-8 or the V-12, the music doesn't get any better than this. Image Source: Aston Martin

1963 Alfa Romeo Guila TZ

When the Guila TZ was released it must have appeared from another universe. Nothing came close to the far out styling which the little coupe displayed, except maybe the Ferrari 250 GTO. The Italians really had it going on in the early 60's. This thing is the very image of speed and racing and really does look like it's doing a 150Mph standing still. And you got a LOT from a little. The engine was only 1.7 litres but produced 170hp. Weighing in at only 630Kg, performance is strong even by todays standards. Image Source: Concept Carz 

1973 Alfa Romeo Montreal

OK, they weren't that well made and they weren't that reliable but man they were the ultimate cool. Designed by the stylist who penned the Lamborghini Muira, they just ooze appeal. Photos do not do this car justice; from the "eyelash" headlight covers to the rear side vents, not a line is out of place on this magnificently proportioned vehicle. I've also read that if the mechanical issues which plagued the car have been well sorted, they are a delight to drive as well. Image Source: Corlate

Any Bentley Continental GT

Prior to the Continetal's release I thought all Bentley's were ugly, including the old classic stuff. The Continetal GT does my head in; it shouldn't work but it does. It's overly big, it's overly ostentatious, it's proportions are maybe a little off but god I love it. They are an imposing machine and if you've seen one in the metal you know what I mean. It's also a car that just keeps looking better with each new release. For a shape that is now over ten years old, you know they've got it right. Image Source: Bentley

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

​My mates would say I don't really get muscle cars and they'd probably be right but that doesn't stop me thinking some of them are very cool. Several of them have made this list. For me, the new Camaro has to be quite possibly the best muscle car ever. It's taken what was already a good looking car to what I call "eye popping" car bliss. I'll argue with anybody who says otherwise. I'd have one today, if only they'd release it down under. Picture Source: Chevrolet

1963 Chevrolet C2 Corvette Stingray

If you don't understand why this car is cool, you probably don't get cars and wouldn't be on this site anyhow. I mean, just look at it, what's not cool about it? The funky twin glass rear canopy, the haunches, the vents, the wheels. Stylists today have a hard time matching the purity of the 63 Corvette. Image Source: Corv Sport

1970 Datsun 240Z

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and in this case there is no denying where the 240Z got it's inspiration from. That's right, the Ferrari 250 GTO. In fact, prior to the Zed's release there was talk that Ferrari threatened legal action for "copying" their racing icon. Apparently Datsun then changed the original styling just enough to avoid legal woes. I'm sure glad they did, as not releasing the 240 Z would have been a crime. Image Source: Wikipedia

1981 Delorean DMC 12

ynamically and engineering wise this is probably by far the worst car on the list,. Yet again, if you don't understand what makes this car so cool (forgetting back to the future) you just don't get cars, you may as well leave now. For the rest of us, Delorean could be another word for "COOL", in fact from now on I'm just going to say "Delorean" instead of cool. Stainless steel body, gullwing doors, DELOREAN! Enough said. Image Source: Wikipedia

Audi RS5 Coupe

German precision paired with Italian styling, of course that's going to be cool. The Audi 5 series coupe debuted in 2007 and has gone from strength to strength. This is one German that proves not everything has to be function over form, because it's form can only be described as the right stuff. This is an instant classic and it shows in the fact the basic body shape has remained in production for 8 years without any significant change. Add the RS badge to the mix and you've got a true sports car that can mix it with the best of them. With M.B. being a little bland and the Beemers... well let's say, Ho Hum, the Audi 5 series is anything but.  Picture Source: Audi
