The World's Most Beautiful XJL Supersport Car

Looks aren't all. Given a rainy day on a pock-marked street, still a luxury roadster will seem and feel less than stellar.

However when it come to attracting concentration on a showroom floor, appearance does matter--a lot. Take, for instance, the case of Jaguar's new XJ sedan.

"From what we hear as of our customers, the styling is really what gets people into the door for that vehicle," say Gary Flom, president and CEO of Manhattan Automobile corporation. "And the XJ is a revolutionary car in terms of beauty, aesthetics and styling. It's a remarkable car that absolutely makes a huge differentiation for Jaguar--and I feel sets a latest benchmark in terms of the styling for a lengthy, large sedan."

The $113,000 XJL Supersport is only one of 10 cars on our list of this year's mainly beautiful. Others, like the $240,000 Ferrari 458 Italia and $183,000 Mercedes SLS AMG, are a lot extra sporty than Jag's large sedan--but they all have an allure that's hard to resist.

In Pictures: The World's Most Beautiful Cars

To compile our list of this year's most beautiful cars, we asked some of our best luxury-car experts for their nominees: Manhattan Automobile Company's Gary Flom; Tamara Warren, a longtime automotive journalist and creator of the car and design blog Go Tryke; Mike Caudill, the automotive analyst for Driven Media; and Noah Lehmann-Haupt, CEO of Gotham Dream Cars. Cars nominated for the list have to be in production for 2010--no pre-production models are permissible, like the admittedly beautiful Fisker Karma, or the sleek latest Range Rover Evoque.
