5. 1971 Lamborghini Miura

Here’s where things get a little crazy. This ’60s Lambo, with it’s mid-engined V12, is an absolute sight to behold. Forget the cheese-wedge-like, Picasso-ish Countach, the Miura is the car for me,  it’s sexy curves an open invitation to explore the 350 (or more) horsepower.

A Bertone design, the Miura is a classic example of Italian passion with the design being finalized before checking if the engine would even fit. My personal favorite would be the P400SV, which didn’t have the tacky eyelash look. Back in the ’70s the Miura could hit 60 mph in under 7 seconds, but who cared how fast it was, just look at it!

    What year is this guy living in? There are more cars from the ’60s and ’70s on this list than anything else. Get with it!

    The only intelligent list on here… all the others had stupid cars that don’t even exist.

    Is it just me or are these lists sorely lacking in awesome American cars? Way to hate America, fuckers.

    Why was the open top (one off because Connery was to tall for it) cooler? The coupes lines are perfect.
