Private investment consortium set to buy out struggling historic race track for £60m
The world’s greatest cars by country
There’s a new supercar on the block and it hails from that hotbed of automotive innovation - Monaco. The £425,000 Rascasse is a 5.4-litre V12 from Montecarlo Automobile.
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?

Ireland has got to be the DeLorean! Made famous in back to the future, never even heard of the shamrock!
****? the mx-5? from japan? how about the 300zx, not only the z31 but the z32 models, not only does the Jun 300zx hold a land speed record, its also been voted one of the best looking cars on several occasions across its life span, and also brought with it some stunning technology.
who the hell writes this crap.
Anyone picking a Volvo over a Koenigsegg doesn't know what they are doing!
Never mind being bad enough to pick an mx5 from Japan over legendary motors like the Mitsibishi Evo, Subaru WRX, Honda NSX or Nissan Skyline!!!
As it is a world cup for cars, then Italy, Usa, Japan and UK in the semi-finals, UK beats Usa as the USA can't take corners, Italy knock out Japan to meet UK in the final and E-type jag just wins after extra time, leaving the Italians kicking theirselves for not playing the Ferrari 250 GTO but it was just TOO expensive to take part. Personally, I would have like to have seen the Pagani Zonda in there.
If I was really bothered I wouldn't be here but it's pretty lazy...
