Any car can be fast, powerful, or practical, but not all add beauty to the equation. Only the chosen ones have the honor of wearing the best designs of their manufacturers and all are in the list below, where you will find what for us are the 20 most beautiful sports cars of all time.
This list is totally subjective, that is, it is based on a server’s stylistic preferences, so it is likely that some of these models are not that good or that you are missing a car. Remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that you can leave us other proposals for beautiful cars in the comments section.
Without further ado, we meet the 20 most beautiful sports cars of all time. The list does not follow any kind of order nor is it a ranking of any kind. They are sorted randomly. Let’s go there.
Let’s start with the first generation Ford Mustang. The most famous pony car in the world is also known for its impressive muscular lines which have led it to be the star of films, to be photographed with models and to be the object of desire of almost every car enthusiast.
Also from the Americas, the first generation Chevrolet Corvette enters the list with the 20 most beautiful sports cars of all time. It is the least aggressive model of all the Corvettes created to date, but, without a doubt, it is the most elegant and exclusive of the saga.
Enzo Ferrari himself recognized that it was the most beautiful car in the world. The Jaguar E-Type is a masterpiece of engineering and design, with a tremendously attractive body thanks to its elongated hood and retarded cockpit. The convertible version gains an extra beauty that very few vehicles can replicate despite being unveiled more than six decades ago.
Ferrari 250 GTO
The Ferrari 250 GTO is the most beautiful and coveted car of the Italian company in history. This unique V12-engined sports car, forged for the finest motor racing, features an eye-catching design that is literally worth its weight in gold.
While not the first Lamborghini car in history, the Lamborghini Miura has the honor of being the most beautiful ever made. It was introduced in 1966 and captivated everyone by setting the golden bull mark as a benchmark in the sports car industry.
Porsche 550 Spyder
Tragically beautiful, the Porsche 550 Spyder was the car in which James Dean lost his life in a car accident. However, it is also one of the most beautiful models created in the Stuttgart house, a small convertible sports car with two seats and rounded shapes made to compete or enjoy a mountain road.
Without leaving the German company, the Porsche 959 is another of the 20 most beautiful cars of all time. The supercar, which became the fastest production car in the world for a limited time, is also a technological marvel and offers a differentiated style from the rest that makes it unique and very attractive.
It was the Ferrari F40 that snatched the title of fastest car in the world from the 959. The F40 was launched to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and is a masterpiece of engineering, design and performance. The spoiler integrated into the bodywork or its retractable headlights are some of the design features of the Italian icon.
The Pegasus Z-102 is the work of the Spanish designer Wifredo Ricart. It is, without a doubt, the most beautiful sports car that has ever left our borders. It was introduced in 1951 by the ENASA company and only 86 units were produced which were sold for half a million of the old pesetas.
Like the Pegaso Z-102, the Toyota 2000GT is arguably the most beautiful Japanese car ever assembled. European-inspired, the 2000GT has become a collector’s item that sells for huge amounts of money.
Mercedes-Benz 300 SL ‘Gullwing’
Let’s go with Mercedes and find out what is the most beautiful car it has produced in its history. Undoubtedly, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL ‘Gullwing’ takes the win by far. Its sleek lines, six-cylinder engine and luxury interior are some of its features, but the gull-wing doors that give it its name are its personal hallmark.
Created by Albrecht von Goertz, the BMW 507 is the most beautiful roadster ever created by the Munich-based company. It was equipped with a powerful front V8 engine and a retarded cabin with a canvas roof. Furthermore, it has the honor of being the foundation on which the BMW Z model range would be built years later.
Aston Martin DB5
Famous for appearing in the James Bond films, the Aston Martin DB5 is an exclusive collector’s item designed by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Just over 1,000 units were assembled, all with an in-line six-cylinder engine. Today they are highly valued and sold for millionaire amounts.
While not as exclusive as other models on the list with the 20 most beautiful sports cars of all time, the Mazda MX-5 is honored to enter this article for its compact size, retractable headlights and cheerful image. Plus, it’s a fantastic, reasonably priced roadster to enjoy the purest driving experience.
Japanese roadster goes the thing and now it’s the Honda S2000 ‘s turn . This convertible was launched on the market in 1999 with a modern and sporty design. It carried a four-cylinder VTEC engine with 240 hp which made it a benchmark among other sports cars in its segment.
Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic
The Bugatti Type 57 was launched in 1934 and is the most beautiful pre-WWII car in the world. This classic, of which 685 units were created in different versions, met its maximum expression in the Atlantic variant of 1936. Some stylistic features were taken from it to create the modern Veyron and Bugatti Chiron.
From the sober Swedish design was born in 1961 the sports Volvo P1800 . More than 47,000 units were assembled in 12 years of this two-door coupe and it was available in two bodies: coupe and shooting brake.
Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
If Alfa Romeo is characterized by anything, it is its indisputable good taste in car design. His style is reflected in the 2007 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione , a limited edition sports car (only 1,000 examples were created between coupe and spider) which equipped a Ferrari 450 HP V8 engine as the icing on the cake.
The McLaren F1 is the fastest naturally aspirated production car in history. At 391 km / h it was difficult to appreciate its lines, but once it stopped, the style of F1 elevated it to one of the most beautiful sports cars of all time.
Nissan Skyline GT-R
The list of the 20 most beautiful sports cars of all time is closed by the Nissan Skyline GT-R . It is difficult to choose a version, but the R32 generation has all our admiration for its achievements, performance and accolades. Plus, it’s spectacularly sporty and beautiful, a car we all wish we had parked in the garage.
