I might be unusual, but I wouldn't put the E Type on that list. I think that from some angles they look strange and as my son the designer says, the wheels are too skinny and look lost under the guards. There are several other Alfas I would put in the E Type's place on any such list. Even a Giulia Super is better looking and famously more slippery.
That's an excellent point. Sort of like writing an article about "the thirteen most famous paintings of all time" and not naming the artists.
The whole thing had a feeling of being put together without a lot of thought or effort. Whether you agree with the E-type being on the list or not, why didn't the author get a picture of an early roadster with its top down? Similarly, why a Corvette with aftermarket wheels and no bumpers? Why a Giulietta with no hubcaps? GT-40 with aftermarket wheels? etc etc.
We could argue all day about whether the E Type belongs on this list, but it is one of the most recognized classic sports cars. But obviously the fellow who picked the photographs dors not know what he's trying to show...
