    No favourites list is complete without the long history of beautiful Maseratis. Especially their dashboard layouts are something to dream about.

    Beautiful. I was seriously considering buying a Maserati a few years ago but decided the old man/sports GT look wasn't for me.

    I must add that it was a used one, not a new model. My pockets aren't that deep!

    1200 horsepower and will do zero to 60 in under two seconds. Too powerful ,Too fast ,and Too expensive ? Boring interior.

    I thought their Vanquish was pretty nice too, one of their better efforts.

    I was a big fan of the shooting brake. I saw a couple at the Aston day at Brooklands a couple of weeks ago.

    There was an OHMSS special edition DBS there too, I've not seen one before.

    Exactly what I thought. My turn : last week, when I went to Versailles to visit the Palace (word of advice : If you want to visit it all -gardens, Palace, and the two Trianons : 1) Take your day, 2) take a pair of good shoes, and 3 ) take a few bottles of water), I saw two marvels of american engineering : a Corvette, and a Ford Mustang Mach 1. Of course, the last one made me think of Bond.

    You are so lucky living in France. Seems like there is so much to see there ?

    Well, there goes the last bastion of hope. Not that ugly though.

    2023 Ford Mustang

    I'm not quite sure I understand: that new electric SUV was/is the current Mustang, no?

    Maybe me, but I find it a lot better to watch without the big ape. They should put him in boots more often.

    I think that Mustang looks a bit odd with its perfectly horizontal bonnet. It's too high and makes the wheels look small.

    Looks great, shame that it hasn't got a electric engine.

    Rolls Royce has revealed its first production EV, and I think it looks stunning.

    Rather familiar name too:

    Rolls Royce Spectre

    And Phantom. Eidolon next I imagine.

    Similar wheelbase and range as the Celestiq, though I do think the Cadillac is much more eye-grabbing design, for better or worse. But for the money, the Spectre strikes me as rather old-world.

    I think they like it like that. Personally I prefer the Spectre. When I get one I'll climb inside and watch Spectre on my HP Spectre.

    Well, a few more than that- they've been using ghosty names for over a hundred years! :D

    This thing?! Each to their own I guess, but that looks a rather unresolved and ungainly design to me.

    I dislike the shooting brake style, but maybe OP was referring to the front of it? I think it is pretty unique.

    The Spectre is one ugly car, like their owners cars too, BMW.
