Cool topic! I'm always willing to share an opinion! :L

The most attractive overall is definitely the purple convertible with the teal interior. (Is it a CR1, CL1, or B2K??? I don't know how to tell the difference without seeing the engines)

The most attractive for a daily driver that is liveable (AKA has a roof) would have to be the purple one's "twin," the teal coupe with the purple interior.

If I was rich, I'd have that teal w/ purple interior one as the centerpiece in my living room... it is too gorgeous.

For me the most beautiful Callaway is the Inky Blue C-12!! The more you look at it the more you are amazed at the carbon fiber body and that color!!

I am equally torn between the Inky Blue C12, the Candy Apple Super-Speedster, and the C16.

Those that have not seen the C16 in person can't really appreciate how nice it is. I took over 500 pictures of the car at the LA Auto Show and it looks so much more striking in person despite taking some really nice shots of the car.

Both of those cars are in Texas, or at least they were a couple of years ago.

Is this a trick question? For me, it has always been the original Speedsters.

But I would have to extend that to all of the C4 Aerobody cars.

Luigi, I was reading the new Car and Driver magazine the other day (w/ the 10 Best features in it) and they said when testing the new Jaguar "R" version, that it was a car that you needed to see in person to appreciate its front end! :cool

There are actually some similarities with that car and the C16 and as you have stated, it too, is best seen in person :cool

...I guess we know what C&D knows - some cars are best appreciated, firsthand :beer

Unrelated car but similar story.

The new Honda Civic Si...I think it was Motor Trend that said.. The new Civic was one of the only cars they've ever seen that looks much better in photographs than it does in real life. :L

Well for me it's:
#1 1991 #001

c14.jpg


#2 This 1990

c1.JPG


#3 is Randy Flocks SNAT GS

#4 would have to be CC's Black Non-Aero '89 (It just needs the ZF back in it, IMHO)

#5 Would be the SNAT Race Car that Boris Said drove in the mide 90's over in Europe.

And the list goes on but this is just my top 5; what about everyone else???

:L That's funny. When the Jaguar Advanced Lightweight Coupe concept (XK) first came out, I thought it looked sooooo cool in pictures. But when I was at the preshow unveiling of the Camaro Concept at the Dallas Auto Show, I thought it was ho hum. Not nearly as sexy as the previous XK and definitely not an improvement in looks unfortunately. It actually blends into the latest Toyota, Buick, and Lexus offerings too much. The performance is nicer this time around but... Hopefully the new XKR will actually have exhaust you can hear unlike the previous generation unfortunately.

ANY Aerobody gets my vote. The look is just about perfect. There are only a few cars that I have immediately found attractive and this is one.

Right after seeing a picture of the car for the first time, I called up my dealer and ordered one. This car made me forget about the ZR-1 I was looking at.

From a C4 through C6 point of view, they have never been able to top this design. Just my opinion.
