While many organizations have claimed this vehicle or that one as the most beautiful car in the world, the most recent being the International Automotive Festival crowning the Alfa Brera the sexiest sled alive, few can claim the legitimacy of this one. Car Design News, a website produced by and for the automobile designers of the world, has polled its own audience of designers and design students to discover which car auto artists themselves believe to be the best designed.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage appears to be the design most revered by designers. After coming across the V8 Vantage in person a few times this auto show season, we have to admit that this car looks even better in person as it does in pictures. Second place went to the four-door Mercedes Benz CLS and third to another Aston, the DB9. The Alfa Brera managed to capture the hearts of designers to the tune of an eight place finish.

      These new cars are nice looking, but they all pale in comparison to the Mercedes Benz 300 SL gullwing. Remember your classics!

      I THINK THE CHEVY CAMARO IS ONE OF THE BEST AND MOST AWESOME CARS EVER MADE. I HAVE OWNED 2 68'S, A 76', A 78', AND STILL OWN A 85' AND A 96'. ALTHOUGH CAMARO'S HAVE HAD MANY DIFFERENT BODY STYLES OVER THE YEARS, MOST OF THEM COULD QUALIFY AS SEXY (AND BOLD!)I AM A TRUE CAMARO LOVER AND THIS BEAUTIFUL & SEXY CAR SHOULD COME BACK!

      The judges must all be European and have never driven or seen the new Chevy C6 Corvette. Ill take my Vette any day over this ugly, overpriced, car that has absolutely no distinctive design.

      Give me the Classic Ford Thunderbird anytime. My 68 Thunderbird Coupe has a 429 Thhunderjet engine, and is not only "sexy" but beautiful, excellent performance, speed, power, and what is most important, it is safe and has stability....

      Give me a 1959 Cadillac anyday, and they aren't all dead.

      Lotus elise in photos looks humdrum, but in person it is VERY hot looking.

      BTW, check out this poor vantage

      It is a nice looking car but has anyone seen the Phaeton? Now THAT is a beautiful car. Very classy and beautiful both inside and out.

      It's nice, but I think the Ford GT has more raw sex appeal...even it is is a rip-off of the 1960's GT-40. The GT would also outrun this thing on the track as well.

      Better looking than the DB9, almost as fast, and without that finicky paddle shifter. How can you go wrong?

      It's all in the eye of the beholder and for my eye it's the Ford GT. Each person has his or her own idea of what make a car sexy or what ever. For some like me, it's a car with muscle and with the look that tell you it's bad. Oh! just a side note,there are some pickup trucks out there that will catch your eye too, and for me it's the Ford Lightning. That's one bad truck.

      The Vantage looks much better than the DB9k, which suffers from excessive front overhang. It was my favorite production design at the Detroit show.

      I can't believe so many people like the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Don't get me wrong; it's not ugly, it's just boring. Aston Martins may be great cars, but they're usually elevator music for the eyes, and the ultra-expensive V8 Vantage is no exception.

      As far as my vote for the sexiest car goes (not that I'd ever have sex with a car... again), The Jaguar S-type is pretty smooth, and the Chrysler 300 is awesome. As far historic cars go, the late 50'5, early 60's Ferrari 250 Testa Rossas and Mid 60's Rolls Royces rule! In the import tuner scene, the '95-'99 Mitsubishi Eclipse, the '89-'99 Nissan 300ZX, and the last generation Toyota Supra rock!

      As awesome as the S-type is, they ought to make the grill just a little bigger to make it more proportionate, so I'd give my vote to the gangster-styled Chrysler 300. They could have been more creative with the name, though, than just calling it a number.
