Enzo Ferrari described the 1961 Jaguar E Type as “the most beautiful car ever made”. How could anyone with eyes and a heart disagree? The Jag’s lithe, athletic profile and gorgeous curves are the stuff of unbridled automotive fantasy. Ferrari’s own GT 250 California is every bit as beautiful. If go-anywhere practicality is more your thing, there’s the iconic Range Rover Series 1, Merc G-Class, or Jeep’s rugged Wrangler. For pure pleasure, Alfa’s Giulietta Spider oozes Amalfi sunshine. Imagine winding along Chapman’s Peak in the XJ-C, with the growl of six cylinders underfoot. The uber-aggressive Mercedes E500, Lexus RC, or Volvo’s understated Polestar all check the school-run box without losing any curbside cool. Steve McQueen chose the perennial Porsche 911 as his daily, while the racy Bentley Continental GT fits in elegantly anywhere.
