What is the best looking 1:1 real car you have ever seen? Post it here! Nothing about performance or cost, just looks.

My all time favourite would have to be the classic Mercury Led Sled





Gorgeous slippery sweeping lines.



I'm not too keen on newer cars, but the Chrysler 300 is one nice looking ride...

hmm...the chrysler 300c looks too much like a bentley... Does chrysler own bentley? a lot of new cars look pretty cool IMO, but I do prefer the older ones. Not sure what my favorite looking car is, but an MG TC is near the top of my list. Or maybe a Triumph TR3. there was one old ferrari that I thought looked sooooo cool, but I forgot what it was called...I'll have to look for it.

TR3

MG TC

I think this is the ferrari, a 250 GTO

1957 Chevy truck. I cant think of my all time favorite car/truck based on looks, but the 1957 chevy truck is in my top five.
Especially with old school Grey craigars.

I personally really love the looks and layout of the Saleen S7.

Second to that, the 71-74 charger, the 73charger SE with shark gill is my fave.

Hard to say really, but the Led Sled is one of my favorites.

1957 Chevy truck.
Yeah those old trucks are awesome.
They look fast standing still.
Everything is leaning forward and the rear wheel guards look great.

Back in the day when weight and aerodynamics weren't as important.

The Chevy Bel Air -57 is also one of my all time favourites with the chrome "missiles" in the bonnet....

How about the officially recognised most beautiful car there is... Ever since the DB7, Aston Martins have been taking the prize every year...current holder DB9-R (GT version is better known as DBR9).

Something tells me Foxy has a soft spot for supercars......








It is a nice car though.
I prefer the top picture of the ones in that post.
Looks better without the rear wing and all the other clutter on it.
Nice and schmmmmooooov...

500K for a 250 GTO is absolutely nothing if it runs.

Im not going to lie. The Aston Martin Foxy posted is pretty sweet. And according to Top Gear the DB9 is the coolest car ever.

maybe it wasn't a 250 GTO, but it looked very similar.

FOXY! I think you have the best taste for cars here

I think all the Astons are extremely beautiful cars, the DB5 and the DB9 in particular.
Also the Audi R8 is really good looking

Oh I didn't know it was a competition.
I would have pulled out the big guns straight away....
























THE ZOE ZIPPER!!!!

# 3 wheels

# One seat

# Windscreenwiper

# Working lights

# Weight under 400 pounds (182kg)

# Powered by a 5hp (49cc) Honda engine straight to the single rear wheel

# Top speed of 45 mph (72 kmh)






Also Available As Convertible








In 1983 the Zoe Little Giant was introduced.
Also powered by a 49 cc Honda engine the Little Giant was a mini pick-up truck that could carry a payload of half a ton.




Bet none of Foxys cars can carry half a ton of bricks in the back.
