Ferrari vs. Lambo: who won the Geneva beauty contest?

84

You don't have to be a gearhead to appreciate the beauty and timeless elegance of Italian car design. Whether it's Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, or even Fiat with its diminutive 500, there's a flair and a flamboyance to this nation's vehicles that is rarely surpassed by others. This year's Geneva Motor Show kept up that legacy with the official introduction of two mid-engine supercars from the two racing heavyweights.

In the red corner is Ferrari's 488 GTB, a smooth, curvaceous beauty with a twin-turbo beast of an engine inside. Even more extreme is the signature-yellow Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce, which strips out everything superfluous in the pursuit of pure, immediate speed. The Lambo costs more and accelerates more quickly, but this isn't a driving experience test. We want to know which you think deserves to take home the crown for being the most attractive. Is it the Ferrari, with its refined shape and subtle menace, or the unreasoning insanity that is the angular, aggressive Aventador?
