The Italian designers/coachbuilders were the finest.  Their organic, creature-like, almost provocative lines were the most beautiful shapes on four wheels. 

The original British E-Type Jaguar was the exception.  Even Enzo Ferrari said it was the most beautiful car in the world.

Design geniuses such as Bertone, Superleggera, Pininfarina, Scaglietti, Ghia and others, created designs that were timeless and sexy.

Marcello Gandini penned most of the beloved classic Lamborghinis.  His designs were probably the most imitated and influential.

IMO, you can say there are 4 major "food" groups of performance cars, each with their own general strengths comparatively. Of course there are specific examples like the E type Jag that defy the generalities. Here's how I break it down in no particular order.

German - Chasis, powertrain & handling.
Brittish - Luxury, exquisite interiors, fit & finish.
Italian - Coach design, stunning good looks. Amazing exhaust notes.
American - Brute power, straight line speed.

Only one thing missing in your list man. Whom is constant on > Reliability

Hard Core. 
"The Fastest Man on Earth" went back and forth between two Americans; Art Arfons and Craig Breedlove. Their speeds crept up gradually from just over 400 to 600 mph. Art Arfons achieved a maximum speed of 576.553 mph (927.873 kph) in his Green Monster on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah on November 7, 1965.

He punched the speed barrier, even though that was part of the job. MT must have been close.

I love seeing these retro cars from the "golden age" of motoring.
My mind, a field of battles, struggles for peace in a tight place.
