The Most Beautiful Cars of 2012

July 27th, 2012

2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport

On its website, Forbes listed the cars it believes are the most beautiful of 2012. It got some right, but in my opinion, missed some real lookers and included some serious head-scratchers.

For some reason, the Jaguar F-Type, which hasn’t had its official reveal and won’t even be available until sometime in 2013, made the list. Odd, right? Also, the awkward Ferrari 458 Spider got the nod, which isn’t nearly as good looking as the coupe version or its arch-nemesis, the McLaren MP4-12C Spider (which also made the list). Most┬ásuspicious┬áto my eye was the inclusion of the Bentley Mulsanne, which looks like a droopy old man.

There are no mass-produced cars on the list, either, which I find remarkable. So, here are some of the cars I’d place on a list of the most beautiful of 2012:

Volkswagen Beetle

It’s a Beetle, but it looks like a Porsche. Kinda.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Forbes got this one right! Pure beauty.

Ford Fusion

I like the slight Aston Martin design cues.

Maserati GranTurismo Sport

Forbes included this one, too, and nailed it with the quote, “This isn’t a nice man’s car.”

Range Rover Evoque

It’s taken some getting used to, but this is a real eye-pleaser!

Porsche Boxster

Finally, the Boxster grows up and looks gorgeous!

What do you think is the most beautiful car of 2012?

    Maybe without the beetle agreed on the others.
