The most beautiful car ever

title or description
The 1963 Corvette Coupe Speciale Rondine

This version of the Chevrolet Corvette was designed by the Italian design house Pinanfarina. It was shown at the 1963 Paris Auto Show. Only one was built. It looks as good behind the doors as it does in the front.

If you can't stop drooling, here's a link to more equally stunning images and the history of this car: (An Italian beauty)

Stunningly beautiful machine. I followed your links and looked at a few more - $1.76 million was the auction price in 2008.

P.S. - You can have this car at your home in Umbria...

I love that Pininfarina 'Vette, but as someone with a vowel at the end of his name, I like this car just a little better:

Sweet. I thought all Ferrari vehicles were red?

Up until a year ago I believed that, too, but then I was reading an article about the most collectible Ferraris, and it said certain models had to be in certain colors to be considered authentic. Here's a look at the full range of colours and some beautiful automobiles:
