5 Most Beautiful Cars of All Time, According to Pagani – Car Business on the Job
Hi. Bob Aldons from Car Business again, with advice on cars and everything automotive. Here’s a story from www.autoweek.com about Horacio Pagani’s choice of the 5 most beautiful cars of all time. I’m not so sure that I’d pick these 5 cars – evident that Ferrari or Alfa Romeo aren’t featured, that there are 2 Lamborghini’s and a German and English car hit the list. Nontheless, I’m confident that the Pagani Huarya should be listed and that the Countach should be there – who would really be game to argue with Pagani. So have a real fair dinkum droll over the cars that follow. Love to have them in my collection, that’s for sure.

The Pagani Huarya is one of the most unique vehicles available today.
It’s the second vehicle ever made by boutique Italian automaker Pagani, succeeding the popular and equally pretty Pagani Zonda. Both of the brand’s cars are described as fast and engaging, usingMercedes-AMG V12 engines and a balanced mid-engine layout. While the performance of Pagani’s automobiles is hard to argue with, the design of these supercars is what makes them truly desirable. In the words of Horacio Pagani himself, the engineering and design of the cars go hand in hand, so it’s pretty safe to consider him an expert of sorts on automotive beauty.
We had a few moments to chat with the automaker’s founder and CEO, Horacio Pagani, to ask him what he considers to be some of the most beautiful cars of all time. This list is hardly surprising, but it’s clear that Mr. Pagani has a soft spot for Italian vehicles. He even went on to point out that many of his favorites include Ferraris from the 1960s.
The Jaguar E-Type is one of the few non-Italian cars on Mr. Pagani’s list. Originally introduced in 1961, the E-Type uses a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout with a 3.8-liter inline-six engine under its long hood. Making 265 hp, the Jaguar E-Type was more than just a pretty machine — it could move, too. Many designers reference the E-Type as a major influence, so it’s not a huge surprise to see Mr. Pagani give some props to this British icon.
The Lamborghini Miura is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and it was a major talking point during 2016 Monterey Car Week festivities. Many Miura owners were proudly displaying their Italiansupercars throughout the week. Even celebrity and comedian Adam Carolla had his Miura SV taking part of the Pebble Beach Concours. The Miura has a place in history as being one of the first high-performance, mid-engined cars ever. It practically invented the term supercar, so it’s no surprise to see it here on Mr. Pagani’s list.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
The Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is another iconic car, but not one that gets a lot of credit among car designers. This choice must have been made by Mr. Pagani’s inner engineer, because when the 300SL debuted, it was the fastest production car available. A top speed of 160 mph still sounds impressive today, but the car’s 3.0-liter inline-six engine was one of the first motors to use direct-injection. The 300SL was named for its unique gullwing doors, and you can see that inspired Pagani, as the doors on the Huayra fold upwards as well.
De Tomaso Pantera
The De Tomaso Pantera is one of the most misunderstood classics in supercar history. The combination of Italian styling with an American V8 is something that’s hard to ignore, but many classic car connoisseurs balk at the quirky car. Fortunately, Mr. Pagani isn’t one to deny this car’s cool factor, as he called it out by name when discussing some of the more beautiful cars of all time. Still, this is definitely a surprising entry on this list.
“Wild” would be the perfect one-word description of the Lamborghini Countach, the final car Mr. Pagani outed as a beauty in his eyes. Granted, you could describe the Huayra with the same word, but the Countach clearly did it first, arriving on the scene back in the mid 1970s with a V12 engine, just like the Pagani. Although the Countach’s six-second sprint to 60 is a laughable figure compared to the Huayra’s sub-three-second time, the two cars will at least be known in history as being some of the most unique looking cars ever built.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.

If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies.
