IMHO the most beautiful car DOES NOT HAVE TO BE FAST. In my mind this is one of the most beautiful cars EVER produced. The Ferrari 246 Dino was produced with a 195 BHP V-6. it was not very powerful and Ferrari enthusiasts of the time laughed at this car as not a true Ferrari becuse it was deamed under-powered. However over the years it has become a highly collectable car simply becuase of its styling.

Perhaps not the prettiest car on the planet but for sure one of the most awesome.

Model Porsche 917/30 Can-AM 0-60MPH 2.1 seconds Top Speed 238MPH Category Race (1973) Engine Flat-12, turbocharged, 5374cc Horsepower 1100BHP@8000rpm Torque 1098 Nm @ 6400rpm Transmission 5-speed manual Description Mid-engine, Rear wheel drive Victories

won all 6 of 8 races in 1973 in Can-am and of course took the championship. Its all-conquering twin-turbo flat-12 engine produced a reliable 1,100 bhp at 7,800 rpm and 19 psi of boost. For short bursts, the pilot could command a staggering 1,500 bhp by turning up the boost to a piston-melting 32 psi with the twist of a knob. Accompanying all this power is the handling of an F1 car!

This car was raced for one season after which the Can-AM governing body had it banned because nothing could compete with it. Porsche withdrew from the Can-AM series and it promptly died.

I suppose if I had to settle for a mere production car this one would do.

OK, not a car but I believe it was one of the most beautiful purpose built machines ever produced.
