Would you consider yourself an admirer of cars? People who are obsessed with the aesthetics of autos aren’t just into the body and what’s under the hood, they fixate on door hinges, fuel caps and rim design. They also pay attention to the design of the dashboard inside the car, as well as the physical materials used for the steering wheel, clutch and seats.

With so many superficial details, in addition to the mechanics involved, it is no surprise that some people place cars in the realm of art, even higher than the traditional examples you would see in a museum. Today on AirTalk, we welcome guest Scott Oldham, Editor-in-Chief of Edmunds.com. The car experts at Edmunds have compiled a list of the 100 most beautiful cars ever made.
