Some of the 1930s Mercedes do it for me like the 500k or the (later) 300SL gullwing.

I'm with Enzo on this, it's got to be Jaguar Type E. no alloys look as good as chrome wires; no steering wheel with an air bag looks as good as the light alloy wood rim; no dashboard looks better than the large speedo and rev counter with the smaller Smiths in the centre and what a body.

Really like the shape of the R8, but i remember having a small gullwing mercedes toy as a kid and i cherished it...seems a timeless piece of kit like the old aston DB5. I still Love the Mclaren F1 & the Zonda F & R while i love the F40 i dont think its beautiful. New mclaren is quite a looker too!

For me it's the Stratos, totally impractical, uncomfortable as hell, unreliable apparently too but gorgeous as hell  :drool:
Wish they'd make the new version too

Not one mention of the first of the new Astons......surprising as it's generally recognised as being gorgeous.

You're a lucky guy Andrew, having an E Type that long.

After owning an Atom I don't believe anything else would be as exciting, so I could live with predictable for my next car.
So if it's my numbers tonight it will be an Eagle E Type convertible. :tu:
