It’s a sad day in the automotive world when we have to share news that famed Italian design house Bertone is closing up shop. Over the past few years, Bertone has had a few near misses with bankruptcy, but this most recent battle proved to be too much to overcome.

There is a silver lining, though. Bertone’s exchief designer, Michael Robinson, departed the company this past December to help cofound ED Design. With him, he brought many fellow Bertone refugees. Let’s hope “a rose by any other name” applies.

In the end, we want to celebrate the life of Bertone, so we picked the top five most stunning cars to be sculpted by the once great design house for you to drool over. Enjoy…
