The world’s greatest cars by country
There’s a new supercar on the block and at £2.2m it can claim to be the most expensive car in the world. More amazing still, it’s made in that hotbed of automotive innovation – Lebanon.
This slightly strange news got us thinking. If every country on the planet could put forward its one top contender into a World Cup of the planet’s greatest cars, which model would take home the trophy?
It hasn't been easy but we've put our heads together and picked the greatest car from each major car-building nation and quite a few minor ones too. In theory, they've all got an equal chance of impressing. In reality, it's a mix of bona fide classics, exotic rarities and obscure no-hopers. Which one gets your vote?
a bit o a **** one this one usually these things are much better,I'm not sure if it was meant to be funny or not but they kept forgetting some awesome cars ..Swedens Koenigsegg springs to mind most of all.
What about the Reliant Robin, a non rust plastic body, cheap tax and insurance, and very economical, so good for the environment.
And one that 99% of the population could have afforded when in production.
As against these super cars that are effectively only for the 1% of the population "Bankers,Industrialists etc"
The monteverdi has to close a resemblance to the Jensen Interceptor, somebody has been copying somewhere down the line.
Skoda Superb a big surprise to be included, own one, absolutely brilliant family motor 100% reliable, have very tall family but everyone has plenty of room.
Jag E type stunning motor.
Astons are forever, forever, forever!!! True Engish heritage! DBS but not with Bond driving!!!
What about the LOTUS ELAN-- What a great car of it's time. Tto All LOTUS CLUB FANS--
WHAT A WINNER.------
rubbish. as per. marauder... firstly, not a car. if its as big as a truck and with a truck engine and you have to climb up into it, like you would a truck, its a bloody truck. would it have been too hard to dig a little further and pick the shelby superperformance coupe, a car, made by a south african company?
e-type, sexiest, for many yes. great.... possibly. greater than the F1 or the mini, really not sure.
sometimes it looks like you just typed in "cars by country" into wikipedia and went from there.
in another article on reborn brands its mentioned lack of sports cars and makers in france aside from gordini (who was a tuner anyway) thus completely forgetting alpine, venturi and of course bugatti in the process. i mean, how many makers should a country of frances' manafacturing size have???
this french link brings me onto my final point. the ds, amazing car, utterly stunning looks and adventurous technology, some of which actuallly worked but what vision. greater than a veyron?
another slap-dash msn production
dont you watch top gear? the sapphire cosworth was made in belgium.
