Our 10 favorite hidden headlights

Modern car designers have it easy. They can sculpt jewel-like housings for their headlights and integrate them into the car’s bodylines almost seamlessly. Back in the days of sealed-beam headlamps, however, there were only so many options to choose from. And while many designers got creative, integrating the lamps into the car’s overall design, some of our favorite cars were available with headlights that were virtually invisible until needed.

 

We know, headlights go up, headlights go down. We love pop-up headlights too, but that’s for another discussion. Pop-up headlights are a form of hidden headlights, but we’re being completely arbitrary and defining those in this list as stationary headlights that are revealed when a panel opens up to reveal them. Here are 10 of our favorites.

Maybe the most unique hidden headlights are the rotating ones in an Opel GT!

Yeah, but those are pop-ups, which we didn't include in this list.

ALL the Porsche transaxle cars deserve mention- 924, 928, 944, 968

33rd Generation Honda Accord- what other 4 door sedan had popups as standard, across all models?

OK----Pantera should have made the list.
