lesser-known classics

Another thread inspired me to make this one. Everyone knows of beauties such as the Miura, Countach, E-Type (I personally think it's just alright), 250 GTB, etc, but perhaps not many know of other beautiful cars, like, for example, the De Tomaso Mangusta as I've recently discovered.

By now we've all heard of Ford vs Ferrari but in another saga, apparently de Tomaso had a mini-feud w Shelby and created the Mangusta (Italian for mongoose) to take down the latter's car, you know, the Cobra. Unlike the more famous feud, don't think this one worked out because while beautiful, the chassis of the Mangusta was apparently lousy so it didn't drive so well.

So, what other gems have you discovered so we can all expand our car knowledge? Pix encouraged.

Mangusta was so much better looking and classic than the Pantera.

Not many people outside of Germany know this brand, Wiesmann. This particularly gorgeous roadster is the Wiesmann MF3.
