5 Cars that Turned Out to be Design DISASTERS!


There is only a fine line between being a genius and mad, between creativity and insanity.

When it comes to car designs, you either create a design that is going to blow people’s minds for generations later, or it’s going to be a true failure that will stick forever on the “ugliest cars ever” blacklist.


Here you go a list of the 5 ugliest cars ever made.


1. The Fiat Multipla

In my opinion, this one wins first place for the ugliest car ever made in the history of cars. It’s like a big smashed insect with 6 eyes!

The Multipla is one ugly car. It’s designed by people who hate beautiful things. This car has everything wrong with it. It’s made of cheap materials, but it’s still expensive!

The interior is also ugly. All of the controls are on the center stack, making it look like a Fisher-Price toy.


2. The Pontiac Aztek

Aztek was Walter White’s car in the show Breaking Bad and is probably the ugliest vehicle you’ll ever see on a daily basis.

The Aztek was designed by a man named Tom Peters who wanted to make a bold statement about himself. He says that the Aztek isn’t for everyone and that people should buy what makes them happy.

However, Aztek is a horrible-looking vehicle that doesn’t even deserve to be called an SUV. It was designed by people who were trying to make a cheap vehicle that looked ugly. They did their job, indeed.


3. Original Smart Fortwo

Daimler, the company that makes Mercedes-Benz cars, didn’t normally make mistakes. But when Smart Car made their new car, they messed up big time.

The engine is in the front, the air conditioner is in the back, and the radiator is in the middle. The car overheats quickly in the summer, so if you’re driving it then, it could be dangerous. The Smart Car almost killed Smart.


4. The Ford Pinto

Pinto was a great car, even though it had some problems. It was the first subcompact vehicle by Ford in North America and became popular among young people. However, it was a terrible car because of its design. It was very dangerous, and there were many accidents and deaths caused by this car.

Ford Motor Company knew about the problem with Pintos’ fuel system but didn’t fix it because it would cost them money. This caused many problems for people who bought these cars.


5. AMC Pacer

The Pacer was designed by William Townsley who said he wanted to make a car that looked like a boat. He also wanted to make a car with a big engine but still, be practical. So he made a car with two doors instead of four.


The Pacer had a very large engine inside. But because the driver sat in the middle, the engine was pushed forward. This meant there were no seats behind the engine. There were also no seats in front of the engine. There was nothing except for a tiny steering wheel.


The Pacer had two doors, one on each side. These doors were of different sizes. The door on the passenger side was much bigger than the other. This meant that if you got into the back seat, you had to open the passenger door first. Then you would get into the back seat. 


The Pacer didn’t have any windows in the back and was nicknamed a ‘fish bowl’.
