Automotive design is a long and tedious process with many steps such as creating a life-size clay model of the prototype. And though the cars are getting sleeker and their design is almost as important as reliability and functionality, there were and still are many flukes that shouldn't have hit the road or seen the light of day.

Any new car starts its life as a sketch and later as a prototype - if it gets confirmed, it goes to the production line. But some of these thoroughly ugly cars somehow skipped the approval of executives and made their way onto the streets, much to our dismay now. Some of these designs could be considered a bold step ahead in the automotive industry, while others look as though the designer just didn't give a hoot about the outcome. Cars that remind us of a boxy drawing by a six-year-old, cars that seem to have no lines or too many of them, and even curiosities such as three-wheelers have made it into our list of vehicles that are so ugly, they've reached sort of a cult status by now.

From Fiat Multipla to Rolls Royce Phantom, we didn't spare any of these monstrosities and put them into our glorious list of objects d'art. Scroll down below to check them out, don't forget to vote for the ugliest, and tell us what you think in the comments!

#1 Dodge A100 Pickup

The flat-nosed, ever-surprised Dodge A100 was a range of compact vans and trucks that arguably was just too weird to gain enough popularity in its six years of production

#2 Fiat Multipla

Named a Psychotic Cartoon Duck, this masterpiece has been produced by an Italian company called Fiat. And though buyers enjoyed the roomy interior, the sneers and laugh from beholders of the Multipla's exterior didn't help with the sales. This absolutely unique car was even displayed at the Modern Art Museum (MOMA) in New York as a design exhibit

#3 Nissan S-Cargo

The name of this overly cute retro car is actually a double entendre, standing for 'Small Cargo' but sounding similar to 'escargot' which means a snail in French. We think it looks more like a Pope mobile on steroids

#4 Bond Bug

Though the Bond Bug looks like a three-wheeled carrot, it was known as a relatively fun car to drive that managed to reach the speed of 122 km/h. Yet, we are not sure if it's a good idea to zoom around at such speeds in a car that has a missing wheel. The Bug was quite a popular car at its time, but being sold for the same prices as more practical cars, it soon fell into demise

#6 Nissan Cube

Though the Cube has won several nominations for its design and has been named a top vehicle pick for dog owners, we aren't convinced that it wasn't made from a sketch by a six-year-old

#7 AMC Pacer

Compared to a vehicle from The Jetsons cartoon and dubbed 'The Flying Fishbowl' the Pacer is truly a 70s design icon

#8 Corbin Sparrow

The Sparrow, also known as the Jelly Bean and Pizza Butt is one passenger, electric battery-powered city car. We truly think its sole purpose is to make your teenage kid feel even more ashamed of you

#9 Sebring Vanguard CitiCar

Though the idea of an electricity-powered CitiCar seemed like a good one, its coal cart design didn't make the right impression on buyers

#10 Suzuki X-90

Suzuki X-90 is probably the only car that looks better with a huge can of Red Bull fixed on its trunk

#11 Citroën Ami 6

Incredibly enough, this mishmash of a car was once the best-selling new car model in France. We, on the other hand, aren't sure how you were supposed to change the rear tires or open the melted hood
