I'm sticking with the 156. Especially as it's a white 'wagon on air ride.

It's an Alfa 156 SW which, despite the ridiculous lowering job in the pic, is gorgeous!

That one also has an aftermarket grille. I think the brand name is Cadamuro or some such thing.

Jeez... there is no way anybody can say that the 156 is objectivley better looking than the 330.

You may well think its a nice looking saloon which it may well be, but best looking car ever? Better than even this ferrari?

Not a chance in hell

Seriously? I was shocked to see the Ferrari trailing the 156!

My vote only returned it to parity so still time for it to be overturned.

Some self-indulgent blinkers being worn IMHO. God forgive me before I get flamed.

I'm still in shock that a car I've owned is in the last 16. I said before that I still get a little frisson of excitement when I see a 156 and I was sad to see mine go. I've never owned a P4 and have no particular affection for it. Self-indulgent? Possibly? Blinkered? Not in the slightest.

The Ferrari is a ridiculous piece of supercarness which few will ever see in the flesh let alone drive.
Even considered as a 'schoolboy's bedroom poster' car I don't like the shape.
The 156 - especially as here in Sportwagon form - is a beautiful piece of design which is/was practical and available to real people.

I don't think a car's ownership numbers, or its rarity for that matter, are remotely pertinent to judging looks but it is starting to sound like it is a major factor.

Fair play, if past and present 156 owners genuinely think it is one of the world's all time most beautiful cars, so be it. 147GTA owners will be along for a sneer in a bit, no doubt ?

Wtf is wrong with this.
I'm being asked to judge 2 cars on looks here. To me the fezza looks ridiculous and the 156 is better.
I'm definitely not saying the 156 is the best looking car in the world. Not a chance.

It's a bit like saying a Michelin starred chef isn't as good as McDonald's because you've had a few Big Macs and enjoyed them but you'll never go to Blumenthal or Roux or Blanc's restaurants so they can't be considered good food.

Why are people claiming that others are stating the 156 is the most beautiful car in the world here? It's been judged only against the cars that it has so far been placed against. And some people need to look up what 'objective' and 'subjective' actually mean. And then explain to us how you're supposed to put forward your opinion of the beauty of an item 'objectively'.

If the type of car that the Ferrari is doesn't appeal at all to someone, why is it so far fetched that they might prefer a different car which is of a type they find attractive?

This game is a brilliant idea. It'd be a lot better if people stopped telling others what they have to think though.

Sorry. I was getting interested. Never my intention to tell anyone what to think.
