In the Red corner... the defending champion:

Alfa Arna :eek:

In the Blue corner.. the latest contender from Munich:

BMW 1 series :(


Separated by era and technology.... but which one is the pig's ear and which (comparatively) the silk purse?

Alfa Arna was just a pig, no doubt but you cannot accept more from a Jap design in the 80's can you.

Now BMW in the 21st century really have no excuse other than the knowledge that people would buy this status symbol no matter how cr4p the design or how floored the car so why bother.

If you include cars from the past the award must go to the Citroen Ami 6. Mind you the 1 Series is very a close second. The Arna was just a bad idea...

I can only assume that the roof was leaking in the BMW Drawing Office when they designed the One Series. :rolleyes:

Or maybe they use computers (unlikely) and someone walked past the Monitor with a magnet in their pocket :rolleyes:

I don't think the ARNA was ugly. It was for an Alfa maybe, but as a Nissan it was just ordinary, though an improvement on the previous Cherry.

The 1 series though..... :eek:

How about a BMW M6? just as ugly as a 1 series but fast enough it will overtake it :D The front of a 6 is so so, but as Clarkson pointed out it looks like the designer died when he got to the back of the car.

Actually, thinking about it, there is not a single BMW in the current range that looks good. Quirky, untidy designs with lines that don't flow anywhere. BMW seem to be going a bit French on us with their designs but being German it's just not endearing anyone.

Do you think BMW are designing **** looking cars on purpose to proove to themselves that people will still buy them no matter what they look like? They're probably laughing at new BMW owners from the boardroom. I can hear them now, "ach, ach, ach, ach, tung, tung, tung, tung" whiles eating sausages and swilling down gallons of Pilsen Beer (no stereotyping here :D ).

In the style of any championship face-off, the rest of the Beemer range, or any other contender can ask for a match against the winner of this contest.

Arnie looks like getting a major tonking in the Ugly fight. :D

In Alfa's defence: the hiddeous design of the Arna wasn't theres. Nissan f**ked that up for Alfa. On the downside, Alfa did agree to sell it.... :rant:

But I am puzzled: where the heck is the Fiat Multipla (first edition, http://tinypic.com/e1av7m.jpg) in your equasion??? Now that is one blind making design :tut:
