Last year, KSL Cars featured five of the most beautiful cars on the market. This month we are featuring five more. 

Car design is a science and an art, and sometimes designers get it wrong. But when an auto manufacturer gets it right, a car can be a functional work of art — a sculpture on four wheels. Buying one might cost a pretty penny, but driving one is a life-affirming experience.

Check out our list of drop-dead gorgeous cars on KSL Cars.

Lexus LC 500

The Lexus LC 500 is right at home on a “most beautiful cars” list. This luxury coupe starts at $92,000 and is the standard-bearer for Japanese grand touring. 

At that price, the LC goes toe-to-toe with stylish heavy hitters such as the Porsche 911 and BMW 8-series, but it differs in the driving experience. Where the Porsche and BMW are sporty, precision-driven machines, the LC delivers a smooth, tranquil driving experience, especially with its 5.0-liter V8 powertrain engine. 

Where the LC lags in reflexes, it makes up for in its comfortable ride and svelte interior. Borrowing styling cues from the LS flagship sedan and the revered LFA of years gone by, the LC is luxury done right.

Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

For the past 30 years, the Miata has held a special place in the automotive industry. Sticking to the recipe of small, lightweight, manual transmission fun, the Miata has enjoyed decades of strong sales and a devoted fan base. 

Now in its fourth generation, the Miata has never looked better — especially in its RF, “retractable fastback,” form. Starting under $35,000, the RF is one of the most beautiful, fun and lively cars on the market today. While the Miata only makes 181 horsepower, it’s more than enough to fling the 2,400-pound RF around in ways that other, more expensive and powerful cars can only dream of. With 30 years of fine-tuning their baby, Mazda has made the Miata better than it’s ever been, which has us thinking: Miata Is Always The Answer.

Jaguar F-Type

Long known for its sleek British styling and attention to detail, Jaguar has cut no corners with its F-Type coupe and roadster. Now with the latest updates to the F-Type coupe, Jaguar has outdone themselves in the stylish sports car department. Like its apex predator namesake, the F-Type looks, sounds and performs with purpose and presence.

Offered with an 8-cylinder engine producing 444 to 575 horsepower (depending on your configuration), the F-Type is powerful. Prices range from $69,900 to more than $100,000 new but used they’re an excellent buy. The Jaguar is great for drivers wanting a capable, attractive sports car that won’t break the bank and isn’t a Porsche 911.

Volkswagen Arteon

Every once in a while, a mass-producer like Volkswagen will come out with something special (see the W12 Phaeton or the V10 diesel Touareg). The Volkswagen Arteon, with its sleek, svelte styling is an Audi A7-lite without the A7 price.

Despite its sloping roofline, the Arteon offers ample interior space, especially in the rear seat. Technology and safety features are excellent, and rival its A7 step-brother in amenities. If you’re looking for a stylish, luxurious sedan that can haul the whole family, the Arteon is one of the best deals for your money.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is simply one of the most capable, beautiful cars on the market. With its low, wide, ferocious styling there is nothing else like it on the road today. Couple those looks with a hand-assembled, bi-turbo V8 engine making over 500 horsepower and you have yourself a pure-bred, serious performer straight from Affalterbach, Germany. 

If you have upwards of $100,000 to spend, the AMG GT is an astounding alternative to the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 offerings of the world No matter your budget, KSL Cars is sure to have a car you’ll love. With the average commuter spending over an hour in their car each day, having something that you’re excited to drive can make all the difference.
