I can discount the Pagani straight away as I think it's ****ing hideous. It's fussy, flashy and I just don't like the shape. The Saab goes next. I love how it looks but it's not beautiful. I love the Cobra for its brutality. They say that it remained the fastest production car to 60 until the Porsche 959 came along nearly 30 years later (this may not be true but it's a good story). The F355 is probably the last Ferrari I liked. No diffusers, no grille that bends at speed, no daft fins in the air intakes, it looks pure and uncluttered like Ferraris used to be. For that reason it edges it I think.

Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).

The train :(

I would want to own the Cobra, so voted for that. The next most desireable car to me would be the Saaaaab.

Cobra for me... the huge fat rear tyres, chrome hoops and racing stripes with the sound of thunder following behind

F355 all day long. It's the only car, bar a Giulia QF, that I really, really, really need in my life. If I were to ever get bored of driving it, I'd never get bored of looking at it. Pure gorgeousness from every angle, even underneath

Completely agree with Keithyboy's assessment - Ferrari for me.

Pure and unadulterated. Almost perfect.

The Saab is too ordinary in this company. The Pagani is wonderfully OTT and borders on automotive jewellery. But it's just too much.
The 355 is delicious but the Cobra is an icon. It's a poster girl of auto porn. Who hasn't lusted over one?

Cobra eases past the 355 with a game in hand.

I'm not actually particularly keen on any of these cars from a purely aesthetic viewpoint.

The Fezza just about beats the Cobra. The Saab is not pretty by any means, and the Pagani is horrible.

Never realised the piece of **** F355 made it here. Tough choice between it and the Cobra. However despite the fact the F355' was constantly (thank **** it's gone) gnawing at my wallet it is an incredibly pretty car.

It took it but only just. Had I still owned it, it would have been below the cretinous ****roen DS/GS whatever the **** it is.
