Looks aren't everything, but that's not always the case for cars. And beauty might be in the eye of the beholder, but we doubt there will be many arguments about our selection of aesthetically pleasing vehicles. So read on and see which head-turners made the list and get ready to fall in love with the best-looking cars around.
Porsche 356 Speedster
The 50s and 60s were a special time in the world of motor vehicles, and the Porsche 356 Speedster epitomises the cars on offer during the era. The 356 Speedster was the first production car from Porsche and featured a split and curved low-cut windscreen bordered in chrome. This car wasn't all looks, though. The performance was up to scratch too, thanks to engineering that was years ahead and better than anything on sale in the US at the time. The car's looks, along with its performance, was one of the primary reasons it became so popular with movie star James Dean. Once he was seen driving it, the 356's popularity exploded.
Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
You're unlikely to find an ugly Aston Martin, but the DBS Superleggera is perhaps the best of the bunch in the looks department. Based on the DB11, this version features unique bodywork, a whale shark-like grille design and wide fenders. It looks like a classic Aston Martin and a car of the future rolled into one, and it's easy to see why the DBS Superleggera is so popular with the rich and the famous. You can own one too if you've got a cool £225,000 sitting in the bank account.
The Lexus LC is a return to form for the automaker with its sleek looks. It combines a well-proportioned coupe shape with ultra-modern styling and is a sports car you can't wait to be seen in. The LC's 296 bhp V6 engine means you can zip around in style, while its 62 mph in less than five seconds is seriously impressive. The car looks just as good on the inside as it does the outside, with the cabin featuring trimmed leather, solid build and the latest tech.
As far as classic cars go, the Maserati A6GCS/53 is right up there in the looks department. Even with its uneven proportions, it looks just as good now as it did when it launched in 1953. The low roofline gives the A6GCS/53 its sport feel, while the rear wheels lift the car to the point where it almost looks like an SUV. The design is definitely different, but the result is nothing short of spectacular.
Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder
Sure, the Huracan has some seriously impressive specs with its 640 bhp, 5.2-litre V10 and ability to hit 60 mph in three seconds. But it's the Huracan's looks that will capture your attention first and foremost. It's a spaceship on the ground with a jet fighter cockpit, all packed into sleek, angular looks with a bright orange or lime green paint job.
Koenigsegg knows a thing or two about making fast cars. And by the aesthetics of the Gemera, it also knows how to make them look beautiful. It looks like a fighter jet straight out of the latest sci-fi film with its curves, stalk-mounted cameras for side mirrors and discreet grille. The performance is equally as good, with the Gemera capable of outputting a total of 1,677 bhp.
Best looking cars around
The truth is that automakers know how to knock it out of the park with stylish-looking cars, and there are far too many to list. Our collection doesn't even include anything from BMW, Mercedes and the like, but that's not to say they don't make beautiful vehicles. Still, the cars that feature are bona fide ten out tens and are hard to beat in the looks department. Fortunately, they drive great too, making them all-around spectacular cars.
