As the Volkswagen Group grows ever larger, they are poised to dominate the motor industry. If you’re up-to-date on your car news, you’ll know that VW is third only to General Motors and Toyota in its output. The Volkswagen range is now home to Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche and Bugatti. Just reading those names sends a shiver of excitement up your neck doesn’t it?
It leads you to thinking… With such iconic cars now falling under the VW brand, which is the most beautiful? Mirror, mirror on the wall, which VW is the fairest of them all?
Well, it ain’t easy deciding. There are some truly stunning cars in the catalogue and narrowing it down to just eight is painstaking. I’m sure you’ve all had these debates in the pub and we will argue endlessly about who’s right and who’s wrong. The beauty is that there is no right answer. (Except this list that I just made). Just kidding! There really isn’t a correct answer, only opinions. Please do let your comments rage in the comment section and let us know what you think is the best looking VW ever made.
8. The VW T2 Campervan.
The iconic hippie, surfer van. Its beauty is not traditional but few cars have had a lasting visual impact as the T2. It’s so iconic they made a lego-version and put it on sale
7. Bugatti Galibier
The ultimate in luxury. A modern finish fused timelessly with classic design. It is expected to go on the market for more than $1.4million so there’s no excuse for anything less than perfection, really.
6. Audi R8
It looks like the future. Those flawless curves, the snarling grill and the mean eyes. Perfect.
5. Bentley Continental
The gentleman. There is no finer or classier car than the Bentley Continental. The equivalent of a perfectly tailored suit. It is sophisticated, elegant and confident. It doesn’t need to be going 100 mph to look good. It doesn’t even have to move. It just knows it’s the best.
4. Porsche 911
It’s the car you draw when you’re a child because it’s all you want to drive. That iconic shape is legendary. Although it divides opinion, there’s no denying that for some people, this is the most beautiful car in the world.
3. The Beetle
Yes it became far too cutesy and cheesy in its more recent guise. But the original is still a classic. Always will be. It is the epitome of the 60’s. And so few cars can define a decade like this. It was bold and forward-thinking design. It still looks stunning.
2. Bugatti Veyron
We need cars like this to continue pushing the boundaries of the future. It’s an idea of what a car could be. What a car could look like. It is the future. And it’s beautiful.
1. Lamborghini Aventador
Not just the best looking car in the VW family. But probably the best looking car. Of any car. In the world. We’ve got a long way to go before anything comes close.
