2. ALFA ROMEO C52 DISCO VOLANTE
I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on this Alfa. Even with legs of steel, trembling knees was the most gentle side effect of being in its presence. Falling over in rapture is just part of the process of drinking in this car’s divine aesthetic facets.
But despite the fact that this car was a child of the early 50’s, those glorious lines owe their shape to science and not someone’s paintbrush. Crafted so it would simply glide through the air with the slipperiness of an oily eel, the C52 was one of the most aerodynamic cars of its time. If only all aerodynamic exercises could result in such unwavering beauty.
