When a car is well designed, it’s more than just a box with wheels that gets you from one place to another. It’s rolling art. But unlike your typical pretty painting or photograph, it also has to be functional. It needs to be able to handle the rigors of the road. It needs to last for years. It needs to carry you and yours for miles upon miles.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at 6 of the most beautifully designed classic cars of all-time. Note that these are in no particular order. In many ways, ranking them would be missing the point. It’s not about any of these being superior to the others; it’s about marveling at these works of art and finding what you enjoy about each of them.
