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.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: The Mobility Revolution Envelops the Region
“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.
