DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s time to celebrate the art of the automobile by taking a look back at the top 10 best-looking cars of all time, as ranked by Total Car Score.
Unlike clearly defined vehicle specifications such as horsepower, top speed or zero-to-60 acceleration, Total Car Score’s “best-looking” list is a highly subjective ranking that can’t be conclusively validated. However, the 10 cars featured all boast signature contours that continue to influence the design of today’s cars.
“Ask 10 people to name the best-looking car of all time and you’ll likely get 10 different answers,” Karl Brauer, Editor in Chief of Total Car Score, said in a statement. “But I’d suggest these 10 cars would be among the most popular answers given. Furthermore, all 10 of these cars have modern-day successors that clearly trace their appearance back to these timeless designs.”
Brauer noted that all of the cars on the best-looking list were produced within a 20-year time frame, suggesting a heightened sense of exterior design evolution during this period in the history of the automobile.
