Cars made with the ugly stick


Recommended Posts

But bananas cost less, use less fuel and dont go as fast......

As for going to the pub in the nude and standing out from the crowd not always being a good thing, similarly wearing full leathers and sitting on a banana on the high street would look pretty stupid too :D

Hope that helps with your understanding of the difference between the two.

Completely. :lol:

You don't have to dress up to sit on a banana though, or at least i don't.

I mean who in their right mind said,

"I think our new car should look like this"

And was he working on his own or did everyone else around the design table say "Yeah I think you got something there"

Some of our more esteemed viewers of this forum may wish to look away now. This may or may not be deemed as sacrilege. I find this car challenging on the eye.....

I have to agree, I nearly posted a pic of a +2 and you could add the 340r as well

as for non lotus.... zonda, veyron, mc merc, any 911 with the huge wing and a citron saxo I saw in stoke the other day huge new front end too much max power

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

That Spyker Toiletlavvy thingy

I dont find the Dino 308 or the Elan +2 ugly, but I always thought the original Lotus Europa S1 was a bit uninspiring (even with Linda Thorson standing next to it):(

Sorry I really like Ferrari 308/208 GT4 and the Zonda and the Spyker :P

But I have owned Citroen CX (the Banana, Wayne knows :unsure: ) and we have to Peugeots :) So what I know :(

Ducati's ... Sex on Wheels Bibs :unsure:

BUT

I have to say that for me it had to be a red one but then i always wabted a Rosso Red 308 too :(

Seems to be a bit of a pattern here ... Red S1, Red Ducati .....

Yes Dukes are pretty sexy bikes, but its the new red paint. So powerful it bathes everything in a red glow.

When I am 40, might get one!

This is what I would like though, a rocket sat under my bum. > 1000bhp per ton!!!!!!

Apologies straying into beatiful bike territory in the ugly thread, so to address the imbalance, here is one that should have been left on the hillside!

As tastes change over time, I think it's only fair to include new cars or cars that were considered ugly when new.

Here's one off the new list.
