Question of the Day: What's the World's Most Elegant Automobile?

What is the modern timeless Talbot Lago? (On the off chance you do use this question, I’d rather not have my name mentioned.) Thanks!”

    I love how people can't read. :D ‘What is the most elegant modern car on the market?’ If a person has a lot of money, and could afford any car they’d like, what could they buy that could show intelligence, money, class and taste? What is the modern timeless Talbot Lago?

    Ah, but it's a trick question. In my opinion, when you look for a car that shows you have money and class, you have too much of the former and too little of the latter. That may just be the result of a poorly-worded question, but I only see references to style and dollar signs, not substance. Maybe I'm being judgemental because of all the attention desired and given to people like Paris, Speidi, etc... All surface, to depth. If you're looking for rolling art (which isn't a bad thing), I'll agree with many here that the 8C is a good choice.

    hmm. I really think there is not a modern and "on market available" car at the same class as the legendary talbot's... but, after some serious thought and still trying to be snobbish (because you can't be enough elegant if you are not a bit snobbish :P) enough to not choose a modern maserati... I might have a solution. what do you guys think of this? Wiesmann GT MF4 http://www.wiesmann-auto-sport.de/gt/STRAND_06.jpg http://www.wiesmann-auto-sport.de/gt/STANDARD_12.jpg
