The most beautifull one would be the S1 E type coupe with Dunlop mag's and the most Iconic/important post WW2 would be the Tucker.

Can't pick one of each, so here goes:

Train - Sir Nigel Gresley A4 60007 and Tornado A1 60163

Plane - DH98 Mosquito, BAC TSR2 and EE Lightning

Car - Caterham Seven 1600 Sprint, LR Defender and AC 428 Coupe

Interestingly, I just googled the AC and you can hire one in Potters Bar, not far from me... at a cost of £1,136.64 for one day!  Blah

Plane - SR-71 Blackbird (with a mention for the MiG-29 I saw perform a tail slide at Farnborough once).

Car - Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Nice call of an AC 428 - a very rare bird ., and sooo much classier than  the more steroidal examples of its Cobra sibling. Despite being an almost identical car to the Maserati  Mistrale , it looks so much more potent .The knowledge that  there's 428cubic inches of V8 under the bonnet?

I'll add a Bugatti Type 35 , surely the loveliest pre war sports/racing car and a Giugiaro favourite , the Gordon Keeble GK1 ,from a time when  'hybrid' had very different connotations.

Favourite, most beautiful and 'iconic' are three different things; so, here goes...

aircraft: V22 Osprey; Mosquito; Concorde.
loco: Gresley A4 Pacific streamliner (preferably one of the four original silver ones, rather than Gresley or Mallard); ditto; ditto;
car: Lotus 88 maybe? Still thinking on that one; Brabham BT49/50/51 (just for the side view, if nothing else); Chaparral 2F. 
road cars: not especially interested tbh, but I suppose Seven; original Elan; Seven.

 

Oh, and GT40? Really?? Even if that's your sort of thing, it can never be the most beautiful whilst the Mirage M1 derivative exists...
