  1. I just got my hands on the new Top Gear magazine, they've made a list of the 100 sexiest cars in the world, and most of it is very wrong imo. they sorted Ferrari's, Merc's and various racing cars into an order of which is the sexiest of the lot, and then placed those 3 different groups into places that aren't even in the top 30 (Racing Cars are 71-60, Mercedes are 56-45, and Ferrari are 44-33). Also they put in quite a lot of new cars. Anyway, enough of my jibber jabber, here's the complete list so you can judge for yourself:
