Interesting collection of designers there, although they wouldn't all be in my top 15. Zagato is missing from the list, a serious omission in my view.

Not practical, doesn't have a trailer hitch.

What's the drag co-efficient?

Nowhere to put the licence plate on that one. Oh, hang on, Ferrari won't let you take it home, let alone on the road, if you buy one.

I've always liked this one... a bit closer to an everyday car, designed by an Aussie, Peter Arcadipane. He just did the new Mitsubishi Lancer too... which isn't bad for a sh!tbox.

#14 is just....silly.

Mate, silliness was established as soon as they included Chris Bangle

They may be inboard (mounted at the inboard side of half-shafts).

Bugattis do that.

Guigiaro (#15) is the master (though that car, while attractive, is not his best), though the mid engine concept Cadillac in #4 by Simon Cox is sharp. #10?! (Chris Bangle) is the worst thing to ever happen to BMW, although his designs have mellowed enough (no bustle trunk) on the recent 5 series to look attractive. But the Z4 still suffers under his influence.

This would work for me:

Just freaking fine.

Trailer package or not.

Just saying...

It would look better if it wasn't wiping its bum

Ya didn't read the post above ya - it doesn't have a trailer hitch, so how can it drag anything? ;)

Well I thought that was where the trailer package went, but figured these guys bashing the crap out of every detail knew more than me...

Seriously :D a lot of the cars here have a plastic thing on the back and if you pay for the tow package, that's where the trailer hitch goes. If you don't pay for the tow package, well you just get a plastic thing... ;)

I wonder why they felt the need to gild the lily with the wacky baccy graphic.

Anyone notice the rearview cameras instead of mirrors? Lowers the drag and looks better too.

I don't know if it's a girl thing or a boy thing, but that's a freaking HOT car!

Well, if it's a girl thing then it will start to look a bit matronly in a few years
