The Merc has presence and is very striking but it's not pretty. I'm not mad keen on the Maser either, in the metal it looks bulky and heavy. The Pantera is one of my favourite mid-engined designs, especially in early form with slim bumpers and no spoilers or arches as here but that Alfa is gorgeous.

Hard one...

The Pantera is great, has a nice profile and just look at the size of those rear tyres

But the Mille Miglia just looks great from every angle.

I do like the SLR, the F1 swoop of the nose is very appealing but the rest is a little too blinged up merc

Pantera for me. A supercar I could live with for 10 mins.

I must admit I have a bit of a problem comparing coach built cars with running boards etc with cars from the modern era.
In particular, the Morgans seem to me to be anachronisms and/or nostalgia trips.
The Alfa Mille Miglia 8C canít have this criticism levelled at it, so I judge it on pure aesthetics.
The Merc is mingin'
the De Tomaso and the Maser are contenders...
.. but the Mille Miglia 8C is gobsmackingly beautiful and therefore gets my vote.

All wonderful in some way but the 8C MM literally takes your breath away as soon as you set eyes on it. The others look like blinged up tarts by comparison. Possibly my easiest decision so far.

McMerc for me. The Maserati is hideous. The Pantera looks like any other 70s supercar and the Alfa is a bit meh

Tough one. Granturismo or Panterra. I fancy a Granturismo and love how it looks and sounds so it pipped it, just.
