In 2011 near the end, we rely on the ratings of magazine “Forbes” to give the nice cars 2011. Last year we reviewed the most beautiful new cars of 2010, we rounded up some beautiful vintage head turners. Topping the list of the most beautiful cars in 2011 by Forbes as the “super car” Ferrari 599 GTO.
“Beautiful design is the number one factor in the value of a car. Currently there are several cars of a kind very rare, very old but they are not valued by the beautiful cars. I have presided over many auctions rare cars, but really difficult if they do not seem attractive. So if a nice car, they will always attract everyone. Always so, “said David Gooding said.
