Sports cars are supposed to be objects
of desire. Beautiful, stylish and well, for want of a better
They are not supposed to be a mismatched and disjointed collection
of parts thrown together to resemble a car.
Some of the sports cars featured here may be very capable machines,
with high-performance engines and superb handling. But unfortunately
for the onlooker style has either taken a back seat to engineering
performance, or missed the ride altogether.
The Salica GT should be much better looking than it is because
it's based on the great looking Noble M12. Essentially what
Salica do is take a perfectly good M12, and then assault it
with a horrific bodykit which completely destroys the cars appearance
from every angle. More

Avanti has had a long and bumpy history which has seen the 'Avanti'
name change hands several times, and production locations and
platforms change just as much.
The Avanti's ugliness stems from the mixture of badly fitting
lights - both front and back, and the slab-like body panels
which have about as much interest as a blank piece of paper. More

Because Jetstream is a small company just starting out in the
world of car manufacturing you can forgive them for not making
the prettiest car on the block. Especially when it performs
as well as it does. But surely it would have been a good idea
to spend more than 15 minutes designing the bodywork.
Of all the cars on the list this one probably deserves to be
here the least. It's not essentially ugly, but it is unoriginal,
and all the different elements like the headlights, fog lights
and various grilles look over the top and disjointed.
Thankfully the GDT Speedster is a one-off sports car so your
chances of ever seeing it are limited. Based on a Corvette drivetrain
the GDT Speedster was capable of 170 mph, so if you do see it
hopefully it won't last long. The problems with the cars styling
starts at the front - where the headlights and grille look like
an afterthought, and continue throughout the design.
The Blast is a driver orientated sports car, and therefore is
meant to please the guy behind the wheel and nobody else. Which
is a good thing because the awkward bodywork is a complete disaster
from start to finish. It does look purposeful - but at the cost
