The Finest Italian Automobiles

Espresso Logo By Louis-Alain Richard of Espresso | Slide 1 of 23: Ah! Que bella machina! In the era of the automobile, Italy has gained a reputation for producing the most beautiful cars. It may be a cultural thing, since many of the most reputed car designers on the planet, including Pininfarina, Bertone, Giugiaro, Touring, Frua, and Ghia, come from the land of Dante.
Italian automakers were not the only ones to benefit from the Italian knack for automotive design, since these designers have also lent their creative genius to plenty of other manufacturers. For example, Volkswagen’s Karmann Ghia, Rabbit, and Scirocco models were all devised by Italian masters. Same goes for the Cadillac Allanté, the humble Hyundai Excel, or the extravagant Lotus Esprit, DeLorean DMC-12, and Subaru SVX.
To properly illustrate the full scope of the Italian eye for alluring bodywork, here’s a list of Italian cars manufactured in small or large production runs. These masterpieces show us that cars are much more than just a way to get from point A to point B—they’re art on wheels!
