The early 2000s produced some memorable car designs, and it also produced some especially beautiful ones. I've rounded up a list of five of the most beautiful cars from this era, and while my opinions here are sure to generate some controversy, remember that they are, indeed, just opinions. You can have your own thoughts on the most beautiful cars from the early 2000s -- but these are the ones.

Audi TT

Audi TT

The Audi TT is an absolutely gorgeous car with a stunning design -- one that only looks better and better as it ages. While newer versions of the TT also look nice, the original -- which debuted for the 2000 model year -- is the most gorgeous of all, and it inspired a lot of designs that are still commonly used today. The TT Coupe is more attractive than its droptop sibling, but both versions look great. Find an Audi TT for sale

BMW 5 Series

BMW 5 Series

The BMW 5 Series from this period is generally hailed to be the most attractive 5 Series of all: the E39 model, which had beautiful, simple lines. It was sold from 1997 to 2003, and it was probably the best example of gorgeous BMW styling from this era -- along with the handsome Z8, which is also worthy of a spot on this list. BMW styling has improved dramatically in recent years, but this era's look was definitely the best. Find a BMW 5 Series for sale

Ferrari 575M

Ferrari 575M

Ferrari's designs from this era weren't the best -- the maligned 612 Scaglietti came out of the early 2000s, as did the mediocre 360 Modena -- but the 550 Maranello and 575M were beautiful. With a long hood and fantastic proportions, these are among the most beautiful Ferrari models of the modern era -- though I think the 575's slightly revised styling looks a little better than the smiley 550's. Either way, it's hard to go wrong with these gorgeous V12s. Find a Ferrari 575M for sale

Mazda Millenia

Mazda Millenia

The Mazda Millenia was a handsome car, and so was the Mazda6, which essentially replaced the Millenia and the 626 in 2003. The Millenia had nice proportions and clean lines, and it was the best-looking of the big Japanese sedans of its day, easily improving upon the Toyota Avalon, Acura RL, and Nissan MaximaFind a Mazda Millenia for sale

Volvo XC90

Volvo XC90

The current Volvo XC90 is a handsome luxury crossover, but the original was just as beautiful back in its day. With the XC90, Volvo proved to that luxury crossovers could be beautiful, and the world responded positively, as the original XC90 lasted for more than a decade without major changes. Find a Volvo XC90 for sale
