44 of the Worst Cars of All Time

1988 Eagle Premier

en.wikipedia.org

From the bland color to the boring lines, one can’t help yawning at the sight of this car.

1996 Ariel Atom

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

It’s like a kiddie toy-car met a sports’ racer and this is what they produced as off-spring.

1989 Geo Metro

The design had potential but the makers didn’t give the car the booty it deserved.

1966 Peel Trident

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

A picture is worth a thousand words.

1959 Buick Electra 225

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

The car looks edgy. Perhaps a little too edgy. It looks murderously angry somehow.

1959 Ford Anglia

lb.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

We’re afraid the ‘Anglia’ looks bad from every angle. Is that what Ford was aiming for?

1975 Ford Granada

www.msn.com

Advertisement

Why, oh why? Why would anyone want to show this to their date?

1977 Dodge Charger

Size matters, yes, but in the right places. Whoever wanted a super long bonnet?

1957 Renault Dauphine

www.flickr.com

Advertisement

The car’s look matches the scenery in the backdrop – dull and dreary.

1961 Checker Marathon

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Fancy buying a taxi that’s actually a car, anyone?

1986 Hyundai Excel

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Big booties are all the rage, but this just looks unnatural. No, not on a car.

1968 Subaru 360

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

The car looks like a joke. Like humor in motion.

1976 Jaguar XJ-S

www.msn.com

Advertisement

Not particularly ghastly, but something’s just not right about this one.

1986 Cadillac Eldorado

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This car needs to know, curves are beautiful. It could do with some.

1970 Bond Bug Three-Wheeler

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Because every Bond and every bug travels on three wheels. Not.

1958 Lincoln Continental

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This car looks distinctively like one that’s been broken down and patched up hastily. That couldn’t have been intentional.

1975 AMC Pacer

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This is a classic example that proves that everything that’s old is not gold. Not at all.

1970 AMC Gremlin

www.youtube.com

Advertisement

From the name to its design, nothing is appealing about this 1970 Gremlin.

1987 Subaru Justy

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Now this is just unfortunate. Launched at a time when the world was seeing some really new-age automobile design, Justy just didn’t impress anyone.

1965 Renault 16

www.msn.com

Advertisement

One can look hard but not find a redeeming quality to this car. We challenge you to try.

1958 Ford Thunderbird

www.seriouswheels.com

Advertisement

This car looks straight out of a cartoon. And is named as such. Mission Accomplished!

1990 Chrysler LeBaron Landau

consumerguide.com

Advertisement

Now let’s be fair. This one is not so bad. Unless of course, you like your car to have some distinctive character other than a typical angular form.

1970 Triumph Stag

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

A front grill with assimilated headlights in the ‘70s? How very original!

1973 Oldsmobile Omega

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Maybe the car would have been a success if the makers put some effort in the design.

1971 Mercury Cougar

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Another uninspired design. We guess car makers weren’t much into out-of-the-box thinking in the 70s.

1978 Volvo 262C

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

The car’s bonnet is so boxy, it’s like the pug of cars. Okay, that was a bad one, but look at the car – does it deserve any better?

1971 Ford Pinto

www.autoevolution.com

Advertisement

The car is photographed in black-and-white to dim its unappealing contours (much like the selfies of this age).

2004 Chevrolet Malibu MAXX

www.conceptcarz.com

Advertisement

Good old Chevy launched this model to people questioning repeatedly “Is this a hatchback or a sedan?”

1974 Jaguar XK-E V12 Series III

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Now, it’s hard to hate on a Jag, but seriously, some things are hard to appreciate, no matter how hard you try.

1975 Bricklin SV1

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

What were they trying here? Was “pseudo-bird-look” the design brief?

1996 Ford Taurus

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This one could possibly look good, but only at some angles. Some, very few angles.

1968 Lamborghini Espada

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

No matter how shiny the car’s paint may be, nothing can distract one from the odd shape of its luggage compartment.

1983 Renault Alliance

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Clearly, the design team was severely underpaid on the Renault team that was in charge of Alliance.

1975 Morgan Plus 8 Propane

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

What’s even going on here? These are the kind of cars we imagine aliens to travel in.

1976 Aston Martin Lagonda

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

We wonder if this car was meant exclusively for non-adults. It doesn’t look like average-sized adults could fit into it.

http://momentcar.com/chevrolet/1976/chevrolet-chevette/

This looks like the fusion of a toy car and hatchback taxi.

1956 Nash Ambassador Super

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Ambassadors are an acquired taste anyway, but this one is particularly hard to appreciate.

1980 Cadillac Seville

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This car looks like it should be parked inside a vintage discotheque. That too, as a joke.

1973 Datsun B-210

upload.wikimedia.org

Advertisement

They probably photographed the car against the backdrop of beautiful flowers to draw attention away from its unsightly form.

1978 FSO Polonez

pl.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Some cars are more functional than beautiful. This is most definitely one of them.

1976 Rolls-Royce Camargue

autocognito.com

Advertisement

One of the most expensive cars of its time, 1976 Rolls-Royce Camargue was deemed clumsy and ridiculous.

1976 Bristol Blenheim

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

Another one that was rejected outright for its non-appealing looks and unflattering style – 1976 Bristol Blenheim.

2009 Ferrari California

en.wikipedia.org

Advertisement

This one was dismissed as tacky, and no one liked its interiors or the exteriors.

1967 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe

www.boldride.com

Advertisement

A Sports Coupe? Which sport may that be? A family outing maybe.
