Looks, design and styling are acknowledged to be subjective. If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, then what looks good to one may seem ugly to another.
We had our reservations introducing this category, especially after eight different cars were nominated for “Most Memorable Drive”.
But as it turned out, there was more consensus when it came to styling. By and large, when it came to design, most of the contributors were split between the Lexus LC500 Convertible (our “Most Memorable Drive”) and the Audi e-tron GT.
The e-tron GT eventually edged out the LC500 by a single vote.
It’s easy for the e-tron GT to draw admiring glances. It sits low and wide, with a ground-hugging stance that immediately speaks to its intent and potential.
The swoopy roofline adds a dash of sexiness, and that wide rear end, with its distinct light signature, is all that other drivers will see when you’re pressing on.
This grand tourer turned heads and caused finger pointing wherever it was driven. Passers-by and other drivers alike took photos of it. It causes reactions wherever it goes.
An argument about tastes and preferences will have no end. But there is no arguing that a car with the capability to attract admirers is an attractive one.
Architect Lynn Tan said: “The e-tron GT is a beautiful car that made me swoon and set my pulse racing. They’ve nailed the design and I love almost every aspect of its styling inside and out. Electrifying looks to complement the electric drivetrain.”
