From the 80s, I like the 1981 Lotus Esprit.

A lot of cars from the 80's have hidden headlights, together with the hood they create a very clean look which I really like and once the headlights pop-up the car gets a lot of attitude.

The two dream cars of my youth. Alright, they still are.

1974 Lotus Europa Special in the famous JPS colour scheme.




1968 Dodge Charger R/T. The daddy of Muscle Cars with the iconic concealed headlamps and door scoops.




Classic coke bottle shape. Even the fuel cap was engineered.

What a stunner.
Different colors really seem to complement different car designs.

This beast lives in a showroom near my house.


The swooping lines of the C3 are glorious.
They originally appeared on the Mako Shark II concept car in 1965

The design looks so innovative and futuristic for the 60's.
The wheels rims are amazing.

The DeLorean DMC-12 manufactured from 1981-1983.
considering that it's an architecture forum we could post at least one of the many pictures of the DeLorean near the Gamble house (the house of Doc in Back to the future)

I agree. It is an architecture forum, but sharing cars with interesting aesthetics and designs seems right in this (design) section, I think. The DeLorean might be my favorite car, because the design seems somehow subtle and it has such a clean look when you see the front part and the hood. I also like the windows on the Falcon doors.
Just when I thought we should post something from the 90's, you posted the Ferrari.
I was about to post the McLaren F1.
Edit: Sharing other vehicles is stated in the title and we didn't had anything till the GM futurliner. Once I was about to post a motorcycle from the 80's.

It's one of the best, but not in this color.



Phantom Corsair
1938














all by http://oldconceptcars.com/1930-2004/...-corsair-1938/

The Phantom Corsair is an automobile prototype from 1938. It is a six-passenger coupe that was designed by Rust Heinz, a member of the H. J. Heinz family, and Maurice Schwartz of the Pasadena, California based Bohman & Schwartz coachbuilding company. The design was a departure from contemporary car design and it did away with many features, common at the time, that were eventually abandoned by mainstream designers.

wow, I had never seen before that Phantom corsair. Truly a fascinating car. It looks quite evil.

By the way, I've read somewhere that the european cars where alway full of smooth curves because the fuel was much more expensive, while in the States the general aesthetic was definitely more boxy for the opposite reason.

But the chocolate is not doing justice to this beast. That was in reference to brown Lamborghini
