0610 Z+1968 Jaguar XJ6+25 Most Beautiful Cars
Designed by William Lyons
Great cars do not necessarily spring forth from a designer's imagination fully formed like some kind of Greek goddess. When the Mark X sedan flopped in the States in the early 1960s, Jaguar chief executive Sir William Lyons, as always, looked around to see what people were buying instead. He took the 1963 Buick Riviera as the inspiration for a four-place GT car, which he later turned into a sedan, adding mix-and-match Jaguar styling elements. When the XJ6 launched in 1968, it garnered almost universal acclaim as the most beautiful car in the world. The car's gorgeous shape endured in production until 1979, and its lithe elegance has influenced every Jaguar since.
