I really like 288 GT0,E-type,last gen Viper, Alfa 33 stradale,Lancia Stratos....

But the one that really caught my eye is this

I found it a few years ago typing sexiest car ever on Google

Sexy Le Mans racer shape from the '60

Richard Merritt - was that the car ?

Not much bigger than a FIAT X-19 ?

this car has been restored, but this is pretty much how they left the factory.

for me the most beautiful cars were pre-WWII American high end cars.

Agreed. I wouldn't call it the most beautiful car ever (for me of course), but there is something just so different about it. There's just no other cars like this and it's a car Citroen will never ever ever ever be able to match.

Ah see, I never really liked the LT personally. What catches me completely off guard about the NZ car is the color combo, it's so elegant. I always thought I was more of an orange F1 guy, but to be honest, I'd take it in any color

While I have other "favorites" this is what I find most beautiful

The Round Door Rolls – 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Jonckheere Coupe. Fell in love with this car the first time I saw it at the Petersen - just happy I get to see it annually (at least for now) when we make our annual fathers day trip there

ps- car is huuuuuge

For me, it is the F355. I always hear the screaming V8 just by seeing one parked or even looking at a picture of one. What an amazing soundtrack and beautiful design.

I can't stand the Enzo, and a few other models. The Enzo looks like a lightly-disguised F-1 model with a few more body panels. For the most part, they nail it, F-12, 599, etc., but not always. I think the F-40 was better at the no-holds-barred-speed-model, but the Enzo just looks bad from a few angles IMO.
