Submitted by on February 22, 2012

1991 Jordan 191 driven by Andrea de Cesaris at Monaco

We’d like to take your mind off the naff noses of the recently unveiled 2012 Formula One cars, so we asked around the office and, with the help of The Cahier Archive, put together a gallery of classic motorsport’s foxiest Formula One cars.

Check it out below, and enjoy!

What are the qualities that make a Formula One car beautiful for you? Is it in the Livery? Wildness? Clean lines? Let us know your top ten and what makes them beautiful in the comments below and on the Facebook page here.
