I have put together polls so that readers can vote on what are the sexist cars of all time.
What is Sexy In Cars?
I understand the difference in people but is there a difference between the beauty of a car and its sexiness? Is a beautiful car automatically sexy and vice-versa?
Perhaps instead of looks, it’s the excitement of the speed and power of a large throbbing engine that makes a car sexy or exceptional handling and responsiveness.
It defies logic. Somehow, you just know when you see a sexy car. just as you do when you see a sexy woman or man.
I have to admit that, for me, size matters. I love to see a long bonnet like you get on an E-Type Jag. I also love curves that go in and out.
Splitting The Voting For Sexy Cars
To make it fairer, I thought I’d split the voting into Time categories and the period of 15 years seems to work well:
- Before 1945
- 1945 to 1959 – post-war design developments
- 1960 to 1974 – the swinging sixties and probably my favourite period
- 1975 to 1989
- 1990 to 2004 – the rebirth of the supercar
- 2005 to 2019 – from the Veyron onwards
I’ve also tried hard to include classic American car designs, even though they are not to my taste. Otherwise the polls would focus too much on Aston Martins, Ferraris, Jaguars and Lamborghinis
The Sexiest Cars Before 1945
These cars may not be very aerodynamic but they are beautiful.
The Sexiest Cars From 1945 to 1959
The Sexiest Cars From 1960 to 1974
In my opinion, this is when car design hit its peak before regulations and dynamics dominated the desire to produce something beautiful.
I tried restricting my votes to 5 but I found it impossible with so many must have Alfas, Astons, Ferraris, Lambos etc so I thought asking you to pick the best 10 would be fairer.
The Sexiest Cars From 1975 To 1989
After the excitement of the 1960s and early 1970s, the next fifteen years were quiet.
The dominant poster on the bedroom walls of car-crazy kids was the Countach which was launched in 1974. It was a period when Lamborghini, Jaguar and Maserati lost their way. As design moved from the wedge back to curves, there were some good looking cars.
