It's time to take a look at the most beautiful cars we've driven in 2013. There are some stunners in here.

The shortlist for this one was difficult to finalize as there were so many very lovely lookers to choose from. However, the first car on our list is undoubtedly worthy of its place, the BMW 507. Hey, if it was good enough for Elvis...

Next we plumped for the big, wedgy BMW M1. It's a proper supercar from the days when men were men and fast cars looked like doorstops. Stylised, beautiful doorstops, but still...

When it comes to iconic shapes, you can't go too far wrong with the Ford GT40. It still cuts a fine figure 50 years after it first hit the road. Neither, incidentally, does its modern sibling, the GT. Both are well deserved entrants in this category.

Since its launch the Audi R8 has been the top of many people's lists and the R8 V10 Plus is pretty high up ours. Especially with that paint job.

Lotus makes some pretty good looking cars, but the hardcore Exige S ticks a fair few boxes -- especially in the looks department. It's small, but it sure is angry.

The Jaguar C-X75 is, for now at least, a prototype but it is a beautiful one. It's every inch a modern Jaguar, and one that many would dearly love to see rolling down the street.

Our winner, however, is the Morgan Aero Coupe. It's got a look that draws people in and made all of us want to stand and simply stare at it. A truly special car.
