What car looks better from the back than the front?

French philosopher Henri Poincare said, "It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance... that permits us to... comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details." Yet in the car world, symmetry between front and back sometimes fails. Sometimes, in fact, it's even the exact opposite of what you'd expect. What car looks better from the back than the front?

Our answer? The Pagani Zonda R, and here's why. Look at all that racecar in the Zonda's posterior. Now look at the front. Not nearly as racecar. And that's fine, because the rear is the only view most other track-day one-percenters will ever see of the Zonda R. (Thanks to Brian for today's QOTD.)
