Here Are the 5 Most Beautiful Cars For Sale on Autotrader

Today, we’re going to discuss automotive beauty. The way this is going to work is I’m going to tell you what cars are beautiful, and you can debate my selections, but of course you’ll be wrong. These five cars are the most beautiful ones you can buy on Autotrader. They are not the fastest, or the most expensive, or the best deals, or anything except for the most beautiful. The most wonderfully proportioned. The most perfectly styled. Enjoy staring at these fine examples of automotive aesthetic bliss.

2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

The early- to mid-2000s Aston Martin Vanquish may simply be the most beautiful British car of all time — except, perhaps, for the Jaguar E-Type. Even though all modern Aston Martin models are beautiful, this one is especially gorgeous; the looks are absolutely perfect from virtually every angle, the proportions are all right, and the flared fenders give it just enough of a muscular look to ensure it isn’t merely “pretty.” This particular example is offered with just 1,296 miles by a private seller in the Phoenix area for $89,900. Find a 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish for sale

2001 BMW Z8

2001 BMW Z8

The BMW Z8 is a gorgeous convertible, and possibly the best-ever example of combining retro styling cues with modern design touches. Although I’ve always found the rear lights a little questionable, the rest of the car completely makes up for it with a handsome roadster design that (I think) has helped keep prices high. This particular Z8 is offered by Vista BMW in Coconut Creek, Florida, north of Miami, for an impressive $159,995 with just under 30,000 miles. Find a 2001 BMW Z8 for sale

1996 Ferrari F355 GTS

1996 Ferrari F355 GTS

The Ferrari F355 is known for its share of reliability issues — the exhaust headers coming apart, for instance, and the valve guides failing, and the engine-out service that’s required every few years. But it’s easy to look past all that stuff, because the F355 is quite simply the most beautiful modern Ferrari in existence, with a perfectly-proportioned design, gorgeous wheels and gorgeous lines. Or, at least, that’s true of the targa-topped GTS and the closed-roof Berlinetta models; I never liked the 355 Spider, as it removed the attractive rear pillar that gave the car part of its gorgeous looks. This one is offered by World Class Automobiles in central New Jersey for $115,975. Find a 1996 Ferrari F355 for sale

1993 Mazda RX-7

1993 Mazda RX-7

The 1993-1995 Mazda RX-7, dubbed the “FD” model by enthusiasts (and by Mazda) is quite simply the most beautiful Japanese car ever made. In an era dominated by overstyling and aggressive designs to emphasize the performance behind them, the RX-7 was simple, handsome and clean, and it always looked better than rivals like the Mitsubishi 3000GT and Nissan 300ZX. The market seems to agree, as values are heading upward; this 1993 RX-7 is offered by Fiesta Kia in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with just 34,000 original miles for $37,995. Find a 1993 Mazda RX-7 for sale

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

I’ve always felt the styling of the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK was almost perfect, with its gorgeous rounded shape, its pillarless windows and a complete lack of stupid adornments and dramatic angles designed purely to show off. The CLK63 AMG Black Series, released in 2008, was the best of the breed; it took the CLK’s gorgeous looks and added touring-car racer-style fenders — plus slightly more aggressive front and rear ends — to create one of the most handsome cars ever built. This one is offered by McLaren Scottsdale in the Phoenix area for $92,300. Find a 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG for sale

  1. I think the Vanquish is beautiful from the front, but the fender flares are too harsh and sudden. They make the back wheels look like sofa casters.
