GQ’s Most Stylish Cars of the Past 50 Years.
GQ broke this list into decades. And thanks to the Corvette Stingray, Austin Healy, Aston Martin DB5, and the Jaguar XKE… the 60s wins this contest in a walk. It’s not even close.
The 70s can hold their own, the 90s had the stunning BMW z8 . The 2000s saw some resurgence of curves. As for the 80s… let’s all pretend the entire decade didn’t exist.
GQ gets it mainly right, but there are a few exceptions. For example: Not one but TWO Buick Riviera’s make the list. One of which, a lovely baby-sh#t brown, launches the slide show and will make most of us cringe in our seats. The Volvo Turbo Wagon shows up, as does it’s 21st century second cousin once removed, the ugly as all get out Ford Flex.
The final addition that might cause you to recoil is the BMW M Coupe.
God has the Duck billed Platypus, Bavarian Motor Works has the M Coupe.
Much credit to GQ for a fine and fun slide show. What’s a list without some debate right? As long as they didn’t inclued the Pontiac Aztec… it’s a thumbs up from us.
