There are lots of people out there who think many of the V8 Bristols are ugly beasts, particularly at the front.

But is beauty not in the eye of the beholder? Each to his own and all that.

If this were not the case, then who would buy the current shape Rolls Royce?

Colour can make a big difference to how a particular design is perceived. There's also the phenomenon of a design "growing on you" and of course the opposite - something that you liked initially but with hindsight or in comparison to later designs you now don't think much of. I suppose this is what's known as a design becoming "dated".

IMHO variety of design is essential, otherwise everything would start to look the same.
