    All carmakers should have such balls. The truck that the piggy Porsche Cayenne wants to look like when it grows up.

    BMW 7 Series
    [​IMG]
    Huh? What? Yeah. The S-Class? Cartoonishly macho. The big Lexus? Snoozeville. Bentley Flying Spur? Swing and a miss. The 7 Series looks like the future. We love the future.

    2008 Cadillac CTS
    [​IMG]
    Hell yeah. Even Maximum Bob's weird, up-the-skirt fetish shots can't hamper the gorgeousness of the newest Caddy. Quite possibly the best front end ever fitted to an American car.

    #7
    Aston Martin V8
    [​IMG]
    Perhaps a bit cutesy due to its (relatively) diminutive proportions, the smallest Aston is still, to invoke Laura Dern in Wild at Heart, hotter than Georgia asphalt. Few cars look better in motion.

    #6
    Mitsubishi Evolution X
    [​IMG]
    The mean front end looks like Darth Vader woke up on the wrong side of the bed. The rest of the Evo looks like Barry Bonds's forearm. Muscular and ready to smash.

    #5
    Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
    [​IMG]
    Instantly recognizable to even a child in the most remote Bangladeshi flood plain, the Murci looks like raw sin. The new asymmetrical bodywork of the LP640 just adds to the illicit thrill.

    #4
    The SRT8s
    [​IMG]
    Precious few moments are as intimidating as when you check the rear view and see a pissed-off, all-black Charger SRT8 flaring its snarled nostrils. We bow before the mighty Ralph Gillies for getting these muthas past the bean counters.

    #3
    Aston Martin DB9
    [​IMG]
    The first time I saw a DB9 on the road I nearly pulled over and put my hand down my pants. What a complete and total knockout. Best rear end ever? Quite possibly.

    #2 (Tie)
    Maserati Quattroporte
    [​IMG]
    While not 100% sexual like the Aston (let's say 79% sex), I did nearly drive right off the damn freeway the first time I saw one of these in the buff. The QP has more style than the 1974 New York Knicks. Each angle is stunning and an absolute joy to stare at. And if you don't get it, we feel bad for you.

    #2 (Tie)
    Pontiac Solstice
    [​IMG]
    Sure, the 8/10s performance left us wanting, the build quality left us laughing and most everything else left us annoyed. But the Solstice is the high watermark of contemporary design.

    #1
    Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

    Can we keep our tongues in our mouths? Not really. As my Iraqi friend at the gas station said, "You could get a virgin girl with that car, man."

    Wow, that a nice list for the FX to be on. But that's a pretty subjective list.

    Isn't that evo just the prototype design? I really like but I don't think it made it to production looking exactly like that.

    I agree with Krayzie on the pontiac. There are way better looking cars!

    Ford receives $931 million for Aston Martin [​IMG]



    It has just been released that the Ford Motor Co. received $931 million when it sold its Aston Martin brand earlier this year. This figure is close to the statement released by Ford on March 12th of this year, stating they would get $848 million while keeping a $77 million stake in the company.

    According to Automotive News, the $931 million was a combination of cash and preferred stock in Primrose Cove Ltd., the holding company for the investors who purchased Aston Martin. The investor group is comprised of two investment firms from Kuwait, Investment Dar and Adeem Investment Co., as well as racing entrepreneur David Richards, and John Sinders. In a government filing from earlier this week, it was revealed that Ford would see a pre-tax profit of $187 million from the deal.

    These by far are my favorite from this list... Before getting the FX, I was seriously considering the SRT8....

    Wish I could have both.... In time.
