This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type -- a vehicle widely considered the most beautiful ever to emerge from a British factory and cruise our green and pleasant land. It's a gorgeous car that shows designers of yesteryear really knew what they were doing. Sadly, it also shows that sports car designers of the 21st century often don't have a clue.

We've bashed our heads together here at CNET UK and have come up with a list of 10 barf-inducingly ugly sports cars that we think are the worst offenders of the 21st century. They're all hideous, there's no question about that, but we need your help in deciding which of these monstrosities is the most visually offensive.

Is it the Bugatti 16C Galibier -- the oddball replacement to the epic Veyron -- or the horrendous Spyker C8 Laviolette LWB that gets your vomit glands tingling? Some in our office have suggested the Aston Martin Cygnet, despite the fact it isn't a sports car, but where does that sit in comparison to the bizarre six-wheeled Covini C6W?

Make sure you click through our gallery above to see all these beastly designs in all their, er, glory, before heading across to our Facebook page to cast your vote. Check back next week to find out where each entry places in the final top 10.

Here are the contenders, in no particular order.
