The 25 Most Beautiful Cars Ever Made New & Old

25. 1954 Chevrolet Corvette

There were only 3,640 1954 Corvettes made by Chevrolet. This car was first created to offer consumers the ability to personalize one’s vehicle. Initially, this car was used as a base model. Customers could then make the tailored alterations as they saw fit. As a car itself, the vehicle was simply fantastic. Unlike others in its class, the 1954 Corvette rarely broke down. This sort of durability added even further to its sleek yet regal appearance

 

24. 2018 Aston Martin DB11

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 purrs like the most intimidating of jungle cats. This is in large part due to an incredibly dynamic twin-turbocharged 4-Liter 8-cylinder engine (crafted by Daimler). Aesthetically, the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 features a powerful body, newly-designed wheel characteristics, and thrilling dark headlamp bezels. The added air vents on the expansive hood also offers a more modern feel

23. 1967 Toyota 2000GT

The 1967 Toyota 2000GT is an incredibly rare vehicle. Less than 400 were produced back during the latter portion of the 1960s. This vehicle was inspired by an early prototype of the Jaguar. As one can see, the car is complemented with a considerable amount of smooth finishes across the board. The pop-out headlights give the car some excellent character. Duly, the aluminum body is accentuated further by large sections of plexiglass. Simply put, this is a striking vehicle.

22. 2001 Lamborghini Diablo

Lamborghini has produced world-class vehicles for decades. The 2001 Diablo is no exception — as this car screams status and impressiveness. The Diablo is the prototypical sports car, and one which will certainly draw plenty of attention from envious individuals. Though it can’t be seen completely from the photo, the 2001 Lamborghini Diablo is also equipped with a beautiful pair of butterfly doors.

21. 1983 Ferrari 288 GTO

Ferrari has long been a giant within the sports car industry. As such, it comes as no surprise to see the 1983 Ferrari 288 listed among the world’s most beautiful cars. The cherry red coat instantly pops off the screen — attracting the eye from hundreds of yards away. There’s also a classic quality to this vehicle — as it utilizes an attractive color, a two-door berlinetta presentation, and a large front/rear spoiler.

20. 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP 400 ‘Periscopio’

There are multiple versions of the Countach — though the LP 400 ‘Periscopio’ may be the most spectacular version of them all. The soft ‘Blu Tahiti’ hue perfectly encapsulates the sleek alloy-based body design. The accompanying scissor doors further add to the vehicle’s sophisticated nature. Lastly, the car’s special NACA ducts were constructed in order to cool both the engine and the cabin. One would be riding in style with this gem.

19. 1936 Bugatti 57

This car is incredibly unique. It comes as no surprise — considering the Bugatti Type 57 was first constructed in 1936. Jean Bugatti — the son of founder Ettore Bugatti — was responsible for designing this beauty. The back of the vehicle is incredibly striking. Fortified by a “fin” that extends from the back bumper down the front of the car, the Bugatti Type 57 almost has the appearance of a bright black beetle. This vehicle last sold for over $40 million.

18. 1955 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing

Earlier iterations of the 300 SL were racing cars. However, the 1955 version functioned more as a leisure vehicle. The gull wing doors instantly pop out as an attractive feature. The bright red seats are illuminated by the jet black presentation of the car’s tubular frame. When further factoring in the over-sized headlights, there’s simply a lot to like about the 1955 Mercedes 300 SL.

17. 2018 Lamborghini Aventador

This car packs a major punch. The 2018 Lamborghini Aventador goes from 0-to-60 miles-per-hour in a blistering 2.7 seconds. Equipped with 740 HP, the vehicle can get up to 217 miles-per-hour at top speed. The ’18 Aventador is unapologetic with its build. Lines are bold, curves are rigid, and the hugging nature of the car to the ground enables supreme acceleration. Even more impressive, the starting price for the vehicle is north of $400,000.

16. 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia

During its debut year, the 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia was one of the most expensive performance vehicles on the entire continent of North America.

With the V-8 engine mounted in the back of the vehicle, everyone will be captivated by the powerful nature of the 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia

15. 1976 Lotus Esprit

The 1976 iteration of the Lotus Esprit was the first of its kind (Series 1). As further described, the body of the vehicle was constructed beautifully out of fiberglass. It offered a wedge-shape — nothing not necessarily typical of most sports cars during its time. The uniquely crafted tail lights added much in the way of excitement. Additionally, the 1976 Lotus Esprit featured a striking front air dam.

14. 2005 Saleen S7

With one simple glance, it’s quite clear to understand that the 2005 Saleen S7 is an exceptionally powerful vehicle. The side vents/front vents resemble that of gills on the flanks of a vicious shark. There are actually similarities to both the car and the animal — as each careen through their respective environments with smooth power. An elongated back portion allows for the product to appear even larger than it actually is. The hand-built beauty simply looks like the archetype of all sports cars.

12. 2003 Ferrari Enzo

Ferrari routinely makes unbelievably beautiful vehicles. The 2003 Ferrari Enzo is no exception to this axiom. Formula 1 technology was embedded into the construction of this model.

11. 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. There are cars respected for performance, and those loved for its brand. Without question, the 1964 Shelby AC Cobra is unequivocally a shining star within the field.
