From open-wheeled, pre-war racers to modern techno-marvels, here's our list of the 100 most attractive cars of all time. The only hard requirement for making the cut: At least one fully drivable example had to have actually been created. The rest is our subjective opinion, but one thing is certain: Each car carries a unique allure that simply can't be denied. Disagree with our rankings? Don't see your favorite?

They have a boatload of mundane MGs and Triumphs but no Lancia Stratos? Shame on them.

Any list has bias and this one has a lot. Not my cup of tea.

Some gorgeous cars there. Beautiful.

It's a matter of personal taste, of course, but when a design makes me smile rather than say, "Ahhh," as #95, the Bugatti, did, I'd probably drop it from the top of the list.

They had what I considered to be some of the most revolutionary designs way too far down in the list.

Cool - I would have rated the First Generation Corvette higher than #86, given it's America's first true Sports Car.

I'm able to recognize only a pinch of those cars
For me, they look pretty much the same, quite impractical
