hmm, i'd have to consider the xj220 to be up there... one of the few jag's i do consider to be visually appealing.

or maybe a C2 corvette.

Well i would say the brabus cls ROCKET is the prettiest car, but its not really pretty. More mean and nasty!

I would say the new Aston Martin 'Rapide' is stunning.
Some of you may not of heard of it, ill get a pic for you. It is a concept but is definently to be on sale by 2008. Its basically a Aston Martin DB9 saloon. With doors like a CLS. I live right near Newport Pagnell (UK) where aston produce alot of there cars. Its a small place but im lucky enough to see a few in the area. When aston martin are testing them. God they are nice!

I have loads of cars in mind that i think are pretty!

One of the prettiest current cars is the Aston Martin DB9. Not only the exterior, but the interior as well. Having sat inside one, and interacted with the interior of the DB9, I can tell you its the classiest, most beautiful interior I have ever seen.









And there of course there is the insanely awesome DBR9:

I agree Mathew, just from looking at the gauges it looks amazing.

First off, the guages on that Aston Martin are the nicest I've ever seen. My personal favorite design is the 1960's Jaguars (Don't know the real models/years off hand)

Aston makes some beautiful cars, thats for sure. I love the late 4th gen Trans Am WS6s in black with T tops. I will own one someday.

i'd have to say for me on the super-car front it's the XJ-220. it just looks so cool, goes like stink, and was made out of stuff that was dug out of the ground instead of in a lab by gents in M.D.'s.

on the domestic front, the late 80's, early 90's SAAB 900 Carlsson models. i've always loved c900's, and the Carlsson performance kit just sweetens the deal to an almost unbearable amount of awesome.

Find the Top Gear episode where they tested old Supercars against new Supercars. Your lowly XJ220 demolished a Pagani Zonda in a straight line launch (might have been up to 60 mph or 100 mph, or 1/4 mile, I forget, but it was embarassing for the Pagani).

you mean a 542hp/475lb-ft of torque car weighing at 3241lbs beat a 408hp/421lb-ft of torque weighing at 2772lbs in straight line preformance? who woulda thunk it?

xj220: 6.3lbs per hp
zonda c12: 6.7lbs per hp

unless you mean the C12-S, GR, or F, in which case... somethin' is wrong there.

around the course the zonda would've wumped the xj-220, but the xj-220 is just such an awesome sight to behold. the Zonda-F isn't too bad lookin either, but it still doesn't have the heritage that the 220 has.
