Click the image above for a hi-res gallery of the Reventón

The Lamborghini Reventón has been named L'Automobile più Bella del Mondo. Translation: The World's Most Beautiful Automobile. It earned this honor in the Special Models category of this annual automotive fashion show, recently held for the fifteenth time at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Italy. There are eleven categories in all, though the Special Models category is generally considered to be the big winner. Other cats include your various sizes of sedans, coupes, convertibles, station wagons, crossovers, sports cars and concept cars. The judging panel included artists, architects, designers, a historian, and a journalist.

We like the Reventón and would even buy one if we had €1 million -- and an invitation -- lying around, but we don't know if it's the most beautiful car in the world. One vehicle we did expect to see on the list is the Aston Martin DBS in the Sports Car category, followed in second place by the supremely tasty Maserati GranTurismo. Lexus should also be happy with its LS 460 deemed the second most beautiful large sedan in the world. What's more beautiful than the LS 460? Why the LS 600h, of course. Follow the jump for the full list of this year's winners.

      I agree on the Aston, the Saturn sky (Opel thing), and partially the Lexus LS thing. I think the Enclave belongs there(in a dark color), that LaCrosse Wagon photochop that was on here a while ago takes the wagon, and GM should Do a Challenger style concept remake on the 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1.

      IMO the Alfa 8C Competizone coming out soon is the best looking car ever.

      I still think the Reventon looks cool, but not beautiful.

      the LS won??? WTF is making this decisions. The Tiguan??? what? The C-class???

      looks like i'm not in agreement with most of this results

      and yes the Enclave look loads better than the Tiguan - interior and exterior no question

      I don't know why yall are complaining I agree with pretty much all of them.

      I agree on the Buick Enclave. It should have been voted best crossover. It is far better styled than the competition.

      You got to be kidding! It's a horrible looking GM POS times 2! All SUV's & CUV's are ugly but the Enclave takes the prize for the worst looking vehicle on the planet. It's got a mug only a mother could love, oh and it's GM, nuff' said. Long live FOMOCO!

      That thing? beautifull?

      About as beautifull as Sylvester Stallone in a dress!

      This award is the biggest "Whatever" of the year. No one cares really.

      I realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder but the Reventón? Really? Maybe in a "Most menacing-looking car" contest. It's like saying a stealth fighter is "beautiful". There's no sex appeal there, it looks like a weapon that is all buisness. The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione should've walked away with this one IMHO.

      Buick Enclave? While your at it, throw in the new Subaru Impreza, Ford 500 and a Dodge Nitro.
      • 7 Years Ago
      what? no 2008 NA focus????
      • 7 Years Ago
      Enclave is a big fat bloated whale.

      Not sure how the Mercedes C Class made it on the list. Far from a beautiful automobile IMO - I guess the evaluators like the look of a Dodge Dakota which could be positioned in this unique and useless event just as easily...
        • 7 Years Ago
        i was just about to say the same thing!

        overall the C class is nice, but the back is nothing to brag about. i'm not the biggest fan of lexuses either but i think in this case the IS shouldv'e won. that car is really nice looking
