About This Quiz

Car design has certainly changed plenty over the last 130 years of the automobile, that is for sure.

As car engines became more sophisticated and pushed cars along at greater speeds, designs changed to incorporate sweeping lines and aerodynamics to help vehicles cut through the air.

But that doesn't mean that all cars produced over the years have been beautiful. No, it certainly doesn't.

We accept that this is a very subjective thing, but we have gone about identifying 40 that we believe are some of the ugliest cars ever produced.

Do you think that you would be able to identify them all?

And we have a range of cars on the list. Some are fairly obscure. They would have to be, as ugly generally means they weren't bought in great quantities and fell away into obscurity. Of course, there are exceptions to this like the Yugoslavian car brought to the United States in the early 1980s. Thousands and thousands were sold, despite the fact the car was not only ugly but not reliable either. And there are many more.

Now you may not agree with all the cars on this list, but as we said, beauty or ugliness is often in the eye of the beholder.

Good luck, let's see just how many you know.
