The classic cars from the ‘70s and ‘80s you want to save from extinction the most
Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV – 1.19.0
The LP670-4 Sport Veloce was the ultimate version of Lamborghini’s stunning Murcielago supercar with the V12 engine tweaked to 670hp, a lightweight exhaust system and carbonfibre all over the place. The Stig managed 1.19.0s in this 212mph beast, which is pretty good going.

For the most amazing car on the list is the Nissan GT-R
The fact that a Nissan, with 4 seats and everyday drivability can make it onto that list, is an incredible achievement.
I love supercars and I love Top Gear - but these extravagances are the last gasps in an era where super-rich who don't deserve to be, are wasting money they don't understand the real value of on obscene toys. These cars depreciate like a rock, such that they cost their owners tens - perhaps even hundreds - of thousands of pounds per year to sit on their drives. Take the Bently Continental GT - you can buy one two years old for £100,000 less than the new price, but even then you'd be mad to do so - you may be able to afford a £60,000 second-hand Bently, but you not being super-rich, you're still going to find it's 10.5 MPG and £5,000 servicing costs difficult to justify. Flash cars, from whichever financial point you look at them, don't make sence.
What a shame.
