Automobile design is a very subjective thing. Designers for instance may look upon their carefully crafted shape as their crowning achievement, whereas the public may just view them as terrible. Some designs are inviting and carefree and let the world know that you are in a good mood. Others however look downright angry and exude extreme attitude and presence. These are the guys that I dig. I spent a few moments looking through the web to bring you some seriously wicked looking automobiles. These are vehicles that look like they’d beat up your car on a whim, then afterward go to your house and kick your Dad’s Oldsmobile in the grill. They’re mean and nasty with a “G.F.Y” attitude… in short, they’re awesome.
1. 1959 Buick Lesabre
Just look at those headlights, the swooping brow and sculpted hood line. This car makes most people quiver in fear and most cars run for the garage. Hell, even painted pink it would probably still kick the shit out of you. It would just do it in a tutu.
2. 2010 Alfa Romeo Brera
The Brera is not a big car, heck if it’s a midsized I’d be impressed. What it lacks in size though it makes up for in attitude. Think of it as the little Italian kid who lives around the block that constantly gets beat up by teenagers. Even if he gets knocked down, he’ll get right back up and jump back in the fight. He’s a scrapper and the guy that you never turn your back on.
3. Porsche Carrera GT
Hi… my name is Satan and I’ll be taking you to hell now. Hop in!
4. 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood
The Fleetwood makes no bones about the fact that he’s a bit overweight. He knows it and doesn’t give a shit. He likes steak and baked potato’s with a tumbler of 18 year old scotch on the side. He’s weathered the storms of life without an umbrella and just keeps trudging along. Yes, you might be younger, sleeker and faster, but you are not tougher. You want to see God? Just piss off the Fleetwood and he’ll make sure you’re on the express elevator.
5. 2006 TVR Sagaris
TVR is an independent automobile manufacturer from Britain who produce some of the most obscene cars the world has ever seen. The Sagaris is no exception. One look at that front end should tell you that this car is just a little bit crazy. Where Britain’s other super car manufacturer, Aston Martin is refined, the Sagaris is like his demented little brother who always carries a straight razor in his back pocket… you know, just in case.
6. 1968 Dodge Charger
The Dodge Charger is the bad boy on the block. He’s the one that banged your sister and then made out with your Mom when your Dad wasn’t looking. He’s all attitude and has been in his share of street fights. He’s won some, lost some and in the end always seems to roll out on top. His biggest thrill is pissing off tree hugging hybrids and he laughs in the face of government smog equipment. He will chase you, catch you and beat you within’ an inch of your life, so when you see him coming, it’s best just to get out of his way.
7. Lamborghini Reventon
Where the Alfa Romeo Brera was the little Italian kid from around the block, the Reventon is his older Uncle who is the family black sheep. He’s made it big and wants everyone to know it. He’s all about power and wealth and if he can’t beat you, he’ll buy you. Just something to keep in mind before you decide to go up against him.
8. 1950 Mercury
The 1950 Mercury is the Great Grandfather of the words “BAD ASS”. In fact I’m pretty sure they didn’t even exist until he came around. Overall there is nothing exciting, or even remotely attractive about him. If you cross him though he’ll beat you down and take everything you own. At his core though he his a gentleman, so don’t be surprised when he tips his hat to your Grandmother as he leaves.
9. 2007 Ferrari F430
Sure, the Ferrari and Lamborghini are both Italian, but that is where the similarities stop. Where the Reventon is the bull in a China shop, the Ferrari is the wolf. He’s cool, calm and collected and will slit your throat before you even see him coming. His performance abilities are legendary and his ability to take out those who oppose him is feared. Style and power only mask the devious side of Mr. Ferrari, so for those of you who aren’t afraid, well…. you should be.
10. Mitsubishi EVO
Ahhh, the EVO. Decades of trying to prove himself has made him one tough little S.O.B. He relishes the chance to take on any and all challenges in an effort to show his strength. He is the guy who brought the gun to the knife fight, and if given the chance will blow you away.
