Cars used to be beautiful with soul in them but now cars have become just a practical tool for transportation. We still have beautiful cars that have soul but the majority of cars are everything but beautiful and are cold as stone without and soul or emotion that come with them, but is this what people want and that again the reason why car brands that are just own by a few big players, make booring cold cars for the market?
When I look at a car or buy a car it has to have soul, it has to get my emotions going, it has to have something about it that wake up every part of my body and just want you to hit the pedal to the metal and just feel the acceleration or take a mellow easy cruise down the beach boulevard as a gentleman and when you stop and get out of the car you can just sit down and look at the car for hours.
What make a car beautiful? Well, the design has to have a flow that just goes from the nose to the tail with an ease, just like a painter would take one stroke accros the canvas with a soft touch that creates a beautiful stroke that flow balanced even if is in total chaos. Also for a car to be beautiful it has to get your emotions going.
Here are some of the most beautiful cars that have hit the market throughout time and have become their own legends.
Designers: Jiro Kawano, Satoru Nozaki, Albrecht von Goertz (never confirmed)

The Jaguar E-type has been said to be the most beautiful car ever and to a degree I agree with it. But it is really difficult or impossible to state what car is the most beautiful so I won’t be stating which one is the most beautiful. The Jaguar E-type was produced from 1961-1975. The series 1 1961-1968, the series 2 1968-1971 and the series 3 1971-1975. A coupe and convertible were produced.

The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most iconic cars of all time and even with it’s blocky and sharp looks it is extremely beautiful. Not only the shape makes it beautiful but everything about it from the so extreme looks to how the doors open. Produced from 1974 to 1990. Models where from 1974 LP400, 1978 LP400 S, 1982 LP500 S, 1985 LP5000 Quattrovalvole, 1988 25th Anniversary Edition. The Lamboghini Countach is still today one of my own favorit cars of all time and I have seen a Countach live one time between Nice and Antibes on the French Riviera.
