The Americans from MSN have made a list with top ten beautiful cars of the world from recent years. Most of the models are belonging to Volkswagen Group.
The main criterion was the model to be manufactured in series, and that they all are made and drawn in Europe (with one exception) is not a surprise for anyone. Most models are from VAG Concern, while the second has the Fiat Group.
Alfa Romeo 8C Spider
Nearly every model from Alfa Romeo came to a point in the list of most beautiful cars of the time. The Alfa Romeo 8C Spider is fitted with a 4.7 liter V8 engine and 450 hp, made by the concern colleagues from Maserati and has brutal looks, but beautiful and elegant at the same time. All the 500 available copies were sold before production starts.
Aston Martin DBS
Aston Martin DBS was designed by Marek Reichmann, but is, in essence, a development of the DB7 model developed by Ian Callum. The model is characterized by voluptuous proportions, long hood, low ground clearance and impressive length. No DBS’s width is not overlooked, and all these surfaces are made by combining aluminum with carbon fiber. To ensure success, Aston Martin engineers have equipped the model with a V12 of 6.0 liters and 510 hp.
Audi R8 Spyder
Audi R8 Spyder is primarily a technical creation. Initially, the coupe version of the model could easily qualify for this contest, but the Spyder version was chosen for more attractive profile. Initially, the model was offered only a 5.2-liter V10 engine and 525 horsepower, but Audi also offers a 4.2-liter FSI V8 drive and 430 horsepower, for those in love with V8s.
Audi has done it again. The fastest member of the A5 range is an impressive package both in style and in performance. Chosen for this model engine is a 4.2-liter FSI V8 and 450 horsepower, screaming with all their power through the four exhaust pipes located under the rear bumper. The A5 is an elegant event, needing a few accessories to make beautiful, but the Audi RS5 version has shown a set of aggressive traits and a great fit model from Ingolstadt.
Bentley Continental GT
Bentley Continental GT was the first creation of the mark in Crewe under the wing of Volkswagen. The model debuted at the Paris Motor Show with a fresh look that is linked to the history of the mark but still looks modern. Lines shown on the Continental GT will be present even in 10 years, during which the model will receive a facelift and even a new generation. This time, the model is offered in the company of a 4.0-liter V8 engine, not only with a 6.75-liter W12.
Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
The famous GT from Ferrari was designed, as usual, by the Pininfarina studio. The benefit of a 5999 cc V12 engine that provides 611 hp. The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is the fastest, while the model shape is unmistakable. In addition, who may find an angle which is not beautiful?
The surprise of this list is the new Hyundai Elantra. The model debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2010 and his appearance did not betray even a line placed wrong. Cynics would say that the designers who created this model have forgotten who he works for, if you compare this model with the previous generation, but we believe that the merit belongs Sculpture fluidic design language.
Jaguar XK Coupe
Jaguar XK Coupe is the replacement for XJ-S and debuted on the market in 1996, while his grandfather is none other than the famous E-Type. At that time, the Jaguar XK–E, or E-Type as it is known throughout the world, possesses one of the most beautiful bodies on the market. In March 2008, Jaguar E–Type won first place among the most beautiful cars of all time from the Daily Telegraph, and Jaguar XK Coupe reminds perfectly about E-Type in a modern definition of what a coupe from Jaguar is.
The new Maserati GranCabrio convertible is very attractive, with an aggressive look, which offers four real seats. The model is equipped with a 4.7 liter V8 and 433 hp and has active anti-roll bars front and rear. Due to this factor, the model gives a higher level of passenger comfort without affecting handling.
Volkswagen Passat CC
The latest model in this list is not the first in its segment, but comes at an affordable price compared to market road opener-sized four-door coupe. We talk about the Volkswagen Passat CC, a very appealing creative Volkswagen manufacturer from Wolfsburg, which is distinguished by the first generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS by the lack of classical elements in its appearance, is a full realization of style and charisma, especially if accompanied a set of larger alloy wheels and the 3.6 liter VR6 engine and 280 horsepower.
