BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
What is Britain's greatest car?
MSN users have been voting for the best of Britain in various categories... and the time has now come for you to name your favourite British car.
It doesn't matter if it is a year old or 70 years' old, as long as it was built in Britain by a British company, it counts.
Will you choose the svelte lines of the Jaguar E-Type, a Blackpool-built TVR, or maybe a cottage-industry titan like the Ariel Atom? Will you be Norfolk bound with a Lotus, or head across the Irish Sea and pick the Belfast-raised DeLorean?
Perhaps it was a car you or your family have owned and have fond memories of, or it could be a motor from a now deceased great British marque.
Whatever you choose, remember to keep it strictly British - no Hondas built in Swindon or Toyotas built in Derby - and we'll compile your nominations into a list of the top 25, which we'll publish later this month.

Talk about how long is a 'piece of string?' this is impossible to answer. I see the Land Rover has been nominated but it is strictly a car?
If you are looking at innovation try the Morris 8 Series E (my first car). It had hydraulic brakes, a four-speed gearbox, an electric fuel pump, electric wipers, proper engine bearings, a water pump and proper leaf spring suspension. It was years ahead of Ford's sit-up-and-beg range.
It's successor, the Morris Minor, has stood the test of time. With a little bit of updating (I recently looked at one fitted with an alternator, disc brakes with servo and an uprated 1390cc engine) it is still a very useable car.
The Mini? Innovative maybe and certainly the standard by which all future small cars have to be judged but I owned several and in reality it was a nasty little rot box with lousy brakes and all the crash protection of a large cardboard box.
For pure brute force I'd go for the Sunbeam Tiger or the Vauxhall Chevette HS. Neither of them were very fast at the top end but both were a barrel of laughs even on a completely dry road surface.
And if you want a real classic how about a Mark 2 Jag? Maybe slow by today's standards (my 1.6 MPV is quicker to 60mph) but still a damn nice looking car.
How about the Morriss Minor? I still have a 1966 two-door model which costs nothing to register, very little to run, and is the most reliable of our cars - I use it every day.
Morgan would be another choice though not quite so practical. While packing up after a Spanish holiday a gentleman came over and said "It's lovely to see a real British Motorist!" - sunny day, top was down, ready for the road!
Triumph Dolomite Sprint - Fantastic till the head gasket blew.
TR6 next for the more affordable end, then the DB5 if loaded.
