Thanks to a bob官网car designer named Matteo Licata I wanted to expand on another Twitter discussion.在这链接马特奥写了一篇他最喜欢的5辆轿车（4门）的精彩文章。自从我第一天看到我父亲从邻居那里买的路虎SD1（1987年？）比起四门三厢车，我更喜欢更流畅的外形。As a family we grew up with hatchbacks,estates,甚至那辆路虎快背车。在某种程度上，我父亲被迫开公司的车，其中包括一些轿车，such as a Sierra Sapphire (a comfortable little shed),即使是福特猎户座（没有我们想象的那么糟糕）。but mostly given a choice we had hatchbacks.I've only ever owned one saloon car myself in 24 years,那是一个乡巴佬复仇者。然而，我决定选择我自己最喜欢的设计在这个全球流行的汽车形状。没有特别的顺序…
Firstly I agree with Matteo that the雪铁龙可能是最伟大的“酒馆”car ever designed.It looks nothing like a traditional 3 box saloon!太不一样了，我自己都不算，到目前为止，它已经从所有之前或之后的设计中删除了。所以那可能是我的头号。5个亚军可能是…
Surely the definitive Mercedes?固体，but light,正式但优雅。Not too big,不要太小。I've driven one briefly and it felt (and looked) like granit formed into a car shape,from exterior right through to it's wonderful interior.Never to be bettered?
Alfa Romeo 164
Yes the Alfa 156 is truly stunning.同时又漂亮又有趣。The 164 though,非常克制andbeautiful.正式的，and非正式的。Quite utilitarian looking for an Italian car,with its many plastic panels and rubbing strips- but at the same time it is elegant and sophisticated.Pure magic that only Italian designers can conjure up!
对，我喜欢SD1，很惊讶Rover把它换成了一辆轿车（但也很快加入了快回风格）。I had a Matchbox model of this,and it predated the Alfa 164 with a similar look (two-tone body) by one year (1986,then 1987 for the Alfa).I loved this linear,年轻时的现代高科技外观。It is so wonderfully 80s,但同时，它的设计细节也很熟练。The original styling model is shown here,from 1983!从Keith Adams那里了解更多精彩网站.
The definitive long,low,宽而真正的美国轿车设计。bob官网The Wachowski brothers new what car was needed to represent the peak of the 20th century in The Matrix,就是这个（实际上是1963年的模型）。
Controversial,但是，我对矩形轿车形状的热爱再次意味着我真的更喜欢XJ40，而不是它应该取代的XJ系列III。The subtlety of this design is fantastic.It borrowed from global design trends then expertly mixed those with more traditional forms of Jaguar.
Audi A6 (C5)
设计讲师的例子。Perfect proportions,几乎到了不知道是不是fwd的地步，or RWD or perhaps AWD (Quattro as intended).The arc of the DLO and it's perfectly balanced placement within the wheelbase,再加上危险的未加装饰的后端（假设增加了一个拖车钩，或者排气管！）这是轿车的苹果iPhone。
An oddity.When I discovered these existed I was amazed.Did they design the 2 door first,then just extend it to be a saloon?就像教练造的豪华轿车。To see a sporty shape like this,作为轿车设计的一个核心部分（不是凸出和增加后设计）是不寻常的。斯巴鲁在很多酒馆使用了这个主题，但尼桑先做到了！
Lagonda Taraf and Aston Martin Rapide
在这里宣布我的很多朋友都有个人兴趣，and even family,work at Aston… but I really can't help loving all the 4-doors they have produced over the last few years.The Rapide was a beautiful if somewhat impractical +2 development of the DB9 shape.后来，拉贡达以令人惊讶的低容量TARAF模型重生。Enormously long,but aimed at giving a massive amount of rear passenger space,the shape reminds of the original William Towns Lagonda while also connecting with other Aston form language.This design might have inspired many other big saloon designs that have followed,例如大众阿泰或马自达视觉轿跑车。I've cheated a bit here including both,但在这篇文章中提到了7辆车！
