My love affair with cars began as a child.  I still get all giggly when I see a pristine example of automotive art, that would be just as home in an art gallery, as on the road. I humbly give you my picks for the 25 Hottest Cars of All Time…

Alfa Romeo Disco Volante

Famous Italian coachbuilder Touring somehow made the already gorgeous 8C even better looking. I wouldn’t have believed it, until I saw it.

Lamborghini Miura

Lamborghini Miura

Well known to have started the mid-engine supercar trend that Lamborghini still does so well. It was the fastest production car in the world when it debuted in 1966.

Lancia Stratos

Striking Bertone designed body looks fast sitting still, won numerous World Rally championships.

BMW 507

Elvis owned two of these. The king of rock and roll had exceptional taste.

Ferrari F355

This is the car that I picture when I hear the name Ferrari.   I’ll take mine in red.

Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin Vanquish

The official Bond car in Die Another Day. Dripping with style, sounds amazing. What else does one need?

Alfa Romeo Brera

 Alfa Romeo Brera

Looks that could only have been penned by Alfa Romeo, this car is beautiful from every angle, and one of the most affordable on this list. Not available in North America unfortunately.

Dino 206 GT

Dino 206 GT

Designed to be an affordable Ferrari and named after Enzo Ferrari’s son. The Pininfarina designed body was stunning.

McLaren F1

 McLaren F1

The brain-child of famous Formula One car designer Gordon Murray, the Mclaren F1 was a rare technical and engineering marvel of its time. Still one of the fastest cars on the planet, the F1 was one of the greatest cars ever made.

Lamborghini Diablo

Lamborghini Diablo

The standard for bedroom wall posters in the 90’s. Inter-Stellar looks. Can cause whiplash wherever it goes.

1970 Dodge Challenger

1970 Dodge Challenger

Almost elegant for a muscle car. Built as an answer to the Mustang and Camaro, but couldn’t quite keep up with their sales. Makes this a rare find today.

BMW 2002

The father of the modern sport sedan. The 02’s great design and exciting driving dynamics put the BMW name on the map in North America.

Alfa Romeo 8C

Alfa Romeo 8C

No surprise that multiple Alfa’s grace this list. They just know how to design cars, and this is one of the best looking cars I’ve ever seen.

Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic

I can’t imagine what kind of reaction this car garnered at its debut in 1935. Its jaw dropping today. Only 4 were made, and 3 of those are known to exist today. Ralph Lauren has one in his collection.

Ford GT40

Built to stick it to Ferrari at Lemans, the GT40 was impossibly good looking and it delivered, winning Lemans 4 consecutive times. Enzo was not happy.

Detomaso Pantera

Detomaso Pantera

Italian design and American firepower. Quite simply a match made in heaven

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

Harking back to the days of the E-type, the F-type is a feast for all the senses. “Oh my” that rear-end!

Ferrari 250 GT California

Ferrari 250 GT California

One look at this car and you can picture driving in the south of France, er…California. Either way, just look at it!

Jaguar E-Type

Jaguar E-Type

Enzo Ferrari called it the most beautiful car he had ever seen. Its looks are undeniable as was its performance.

McLaren P1

McLaren P1

900HP, KERS, outboard suspension, the P1 sounds more like an F1 car than something for the road.

1965 Mustang Fastback

1965 Mustang Fastback

1965 marked the first year the Mustang was available with a 289 cu in V8 and the fastback bodystyle. The classic silhouette still looks great today.

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale

A thinly disguised race car for the road, the Stradale is exquisitely styled and quite rare. Only 19 were produced.

Ferrari 250 GTO

Ferrari 250 GTO

An example of the GTO sold at auction for $38 million, making it the most valuable car ever. There goes my shot at owning one.

Bugatti Type 35

Bugatti’s most successful racing car, with over 1000 wins in its time. The arched radiator grill its most famous characteristic, the type 35 oozes with style.

Corvette Stingray (C2)

Corvette Stingray

It was a futuristic design in 1963, and has stood the test of time. My favourite of all the corvette generations.
