The Cobra is proper poster material but, as much as I love it, I'm not sure it's really beautiful. It was a bloke called Carroll's idea. It was the world's fastest accelerating production car for decades. It looks mean and muscular. It would kill you soon as look at you if you even attempted to drive it quickly.

The Alfa, as I have boldly claimed before, is perfect from every angle. It's pretty, well-proportioned and neat. With its squat rear it looks like it's ready to pounce. It's subtle and has lovely details like the slim pillars, the twin pod dash and dished steering wheel. Even the engine is pretty. It looks like it was designed to enjoy every aspect of owning it.

For me it's subtlety over brutality.

Tough choice, as I love that Alfa, but for me the Cobra just edges it in the beauty stakes.

I'm agreeing with keithyboy. The Cobra is the one I wanted in Top Trumps as a kid but now the Alfa floats my boat.

I'm biased towards the Alfa because I think it's better looking.

I'm voting Cobra, because it's flagging.

I'm surprised that this is so close, and yes, that it wasn't closer between the 916 GTV and the Cobra.

I'd rate this Alfa over the 916 though.
