The designer of the century's five most beautiful cars

Ride Lust offers a tribute to legendary car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro.

Giugiaro was, without question, sufficiently ahead of the mainstream that he lapped his competitors by decades. His influential, gorgeous vehicles continue to inspire designers to this day.

American muscle cars, the Mazda Miata, the Pantera, and multiple Ferarris and Lamborghinis owe their lines to Giugiaro. People toss around the word genius far too freely, but that's not the case when discussing this man.
