WCOC Group 6

Your choice of the perfectly pretty coupe, the muscular Ferrari, the sleek Bizzarini and the coachbuilt Talbot-Lago.

I'm not mad keen on the Bizzarini, the Talbot-Lago is stunning but very fussy looking, the GTO looks mean and aggressive but lacks the 308's grace. The Alfa is just perfect from nose to tail, inside and even under the bonnet. It doesn't have a bad angle.

That Alfa is one sweet looking thing. Smashes the group.

never been a big fan of the 288GTO... its not good looking.

The Talbot is great in a classic aero style with the sweeping wings but as you say is a little much.

The Alfa is just

The train :(

That was hard, they are from at least three different eras, no?
The Talbot-Lago is stylish but it is too big to be pretty. I did just discover the Talbot Lago T26 GS Oblin Coupe though, which is very attractive.
Ferrari no - too angular.
Bizzarini - the area where the door window and rear window meet is a horrific mess.
That leaves the Alfa. Keithyboy is right in that it doesn't have a bad angle and although it got my vote, I don't think it that pretty a car*.


*puts on flame retardant suit.

I feel like the other three cars don't stand a chance here, as this is an Alfa forum.

I didn't vote for the Alfa, even though it was a VERY close-run thing for me.

Maybe we should have had a no Alfa rule - even though they have made some very pretty cars over the years there would be too much bias

I'm not a true Alfisti or a bella-end (still love that) but I genuinely think that the Alfa in question is one of the best looking cars ever made. To have a WCOC without it would be like the football world cup being held in Brazil and not allowing Brazil to take part because the crowd would be too partisan.

288. 95% of the F40 with none of the ugly looks. I think the added beefiness of the kit on a 308/328 shape makes it almost perfect

If an Alfa (even one as lovely as this) wins then it's fixed. Fixed because of the bias.
288GTO along with the Muira should be a clear winner.. oh and the 250
