Maserati Mistral (1963)
“Mistral”, defined by Wikipedia:

The mistral (Catalan: Mestral)  is a strong, cold and usually dry regional wind in France, coming from  the north or northwest, which accelerates when it passes through the  valleys of the Rhone and the Durance Rivers to the coast of the Mediterranean.
And that’s exactly where this Maserati got its name from. The wind. It was the last in the 3500 lineup base, with better performance and with more modern looks due to the sleek Frua design.

Maserati A6 GCS Pininfarina (1954)
The A6 had quite a large number of designs during its lifespan, and plenty of design houses had the chance to work their own magic on this pretty thing.
Personally, nothing screams “gorgeousness” as much as the Pininfarina version, in 1954. I find this to be not only the best looking A6GCS, but also one of the world’s finest.
