    Personally, I think that the 550/575M lines are some of the nicest IMO

    Oh my god.. the ENZO is FAR from the world's most beautiful cars IMO. I think the F40 and F50 look much better.

    For me I think the 512TR is probably the most beautiful car. I love it. I wish Ferrari still styled their cars like that.

    I'm more into recent cars myself ... soooo ... most beautiful would be the Diablo 6.0 without a doubt.

    I've got to go with one of the Figoni et Falaschi teardrop coupe Delahayes. But certainly the Miura and XKE are the postwar choices. Ferrari-wise I'd have to go with the Dino and the Cal Spider.

    Cheers

    I know why. I saw my first in the flesh not that long ago (Melbourne GP) and while stunning in photos, one of the few cars that are just as stunning in the flesh.

    Even though I am not a Lambo fan, I would own one in a heartbeat ... if given the chance.

    Not only is the Miura and XKE most beautiful, numerous times the cars have been voted top 10 cars of all time. There was a robb report article and from what i remember they felt the greatest cars of all time included

    Ferrari 250 GTO
    Ferrari F40
    Lamborghini Miura
    Lamborghini Countach
    Jaguar XKE
    Corvette Stingray
    Cobra
