The 100 Hottest Cars of All Time

Toyota 2000GT (1967–1970)

A little-known creation from Japan, the 2000GT was a world-class exotic sports car. Keen eyes may recognize a one-off convertible version from the James Bond film You Only Live Twice.

Jaguar XJS (1975–1996)

The successor to the iconic E-Type, the XJS was a great-looking car in its own right. In production for more than two decades, it became one of the most recognizable models from Jaguar.

Alfa Romeo Spider (1966–1969)

While the Spider has evolved through various iterations over the years, it's the original "Series 1" generation of the '60s, famous from the movie The Graduate, that tugs the heartstrings of enthusiasts.

Jaguar XKSS (1957)

The voluptuous XKSS was the road-going variant of the Jaguar D-Type racer. A factory fire destroyed nine of the 25 examples made before they were ever delivered.

Mercedes-Benz 540K (1935–1940)

The 540K marked a distinct change in style from its predecessor, the 500K. The new model featured sleeker and curvier bodywork, along with a larger, more powerful straight-8 engine.

Porsche 550 (1953–1956)

Famous for being the car in which James Dean met his fate, the 550 Spyder was a svelte, low-riding convertible that helped solidify Porsche's worldwide fame.
