According to a study published in the December 2008 edition of the journal Human Nature, "people seem to like mature, dominant, masculine, arrogant, angry-looking cars." In honor of this ghoulish automotive delight, the Kelley Blue Book editors have assembled mug shots of 10 new cars with sinister-looking faces, just in time for the 2009 Halloween season.

Facial features common among vehicles considered for the 2009 list of 10 Sinister Car Faces include sharp angles, squinting eyes and gaping maws (as if emitting battle cries or preparing to eat their next victim). Some of the cars that made the list evoke images of science-fiction villains and birds of prey, while one entry is even named after a mythical serpent.

"This list highlights the fact that some of the most beloved cars on the road wear the wickedest expressions," said Jason Allan, online content editor for Kelley Blue Book's. "We might profess a preference for a friendly face, but we often vote with our dollars and the Dodge Neon is long gone."

Sample Choices from website List of 10 Sinister Car Faces

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
Rolls-Royce Phantom
Infiniti FX50
Cadillac CTS
Ford F-150 Raptor
