Peugeot 404 Coupé (1963)
There’s no need to go further; the Pug 404 Coupé was designed by Pininfarina which much love.
Up until then, the 404 gained a solid reputation for being the regular “taxi car”, which Peugeot managed to break in serious style with the introduction of the Coupé and Convertible versions. Performance was modest as well, and every year the french company gave it a fine revision so it could continue to be appealing for new buyers.
What’s not to like?
Fiat 124 Coupé Sport (1967)
Syed, from IEDEI, says the 124 Sport Coupé is finally growing on him. And he has plenty of reason to think that way.
This version is known as the BC (but that’s not Before Christ, as it was launched 1970 years after him), and its muscular looks have a few interesting sources. For instance, the headlights were shared parts between the Lamborghini Jarama.
The version after this one, the CC, finally featured an engine to match, at 1.7 litres of displacement.
And the 124 Spider? Oh, don’t get me started on that one! I have work to do.
BMW 507 Coupé (1956)
Still the grandfather of modern sport coupés and roadsters, the 507 sits easily at the top of the most beautiful and graceful artforms in any media.
Very few were made, making these incredibly rare and expensive as a human soul.

Bentley Mark IV Coupe (1951)
Built by the coachbuilding company of Abbott Farnham.
MGA Twin Cam Coupé (1958)
If you’re thinking “oh my, that’s gorgeous! Why haven’t I seen that before?”, I don’t blame you. It is indeed a gorgeous version of the beloved MGA, but its reliability was appalling, to say the least.
Almost every engine fitted into these broke down, and they usually wouldn’t last half a dozen years without costly maintenance. Very few were sold, so you can probably count the remaining examples of this model by the fingers on your hands.
Hudson Italia Coupe (1954)
Built by Carrozeria Touring.
Fiat 2300 Coupe promo (1961)
Body design by Ghia.
Hudson Italia Coupé (1954)
Built by Carrozeria Touring, with a personal touch of their own chief designer Carlo Anderloni.
Porsche 908 Coupe (1969)
More precisely, the 908.018 (chassis number), which was driven at the hands of Hans Herrmann and Kurt Ahrens at the 1968 Austrian Grand Prix.
A partnership between Ghia and Daimler which resulted in the very interesting Regency Coupé, in 1955.
