3. Maserati Gran Turismo
Maseratis may not be the fastest, best-handling or most exotic cars on the road but damn they look good! Generalizations aside these Italian muscle machines are simply beautiful, especially the firm’s GranTurismo coupe.
This four-seat car is striking; in fact the company even calls out its sex appeal on their website by comparing the bodywork to a tight dress running over curvaceous hips. How’s that for suggestive? Of course the GranTurismo’s interior is just as sumptuous with ample amounts of leather and other high-end materials.

Behind the famous trident emblem mounted in the grille rests a 4.2-liter V8 engine. It delivers 405 hp at a lofty 7,100 revolutions per minute along with 340 lb-ft of twist at a much more reasonable 4,750 RPM. Zero to 60 takes a not-terribly-fast 5.2 seconds, but it really doesn’t matter because the car is arousingly gorgeous.
