The 100 Hottest Cars of All Time

Jaguar E-Type (1961–1975)

The E-Type needs little introduction. An icon of '60s style, its famous shape hid either one of two inline-six engines, although its final Series 3 variant came packing a 5.3-liter V-12 under the long hood.

Lotus Elise (1996–Present)

Tiny, lightweight, fast, and nimble. The Elise, along with its more hardcore, track-oriented Exige sibling, defines what Lotus is all about: a connection between driver and road.
