Which is it and for what reason? Unfortunately, I won't be able to include all British makes in the poll as there are more than 10. If you din't see your favorite, I'm sorry. It's not like this thread will go crazy and people will demand to see Vauxhall and Ascari... haha

Totally agree! For style and speed these cars are totally awesome. My favorite is the Aston Martin One-77. :)

Rolls-Royces are so darn attractive.

That I totally agree with. They're just so elegant. I'd like to own a classoc one someday. They actually aren't super expensive either. You can get some pretty cheap classic models like the Silver Cloud for just north of 20K US. I don't fully understand how pricing goes with classic British luxury cars, but old Bentleys and Rolls are just dirt cheap depending on the model. You'd think such elegant cars would on;y appreciate in value (and believe me, some of them definitely do)

You're missing one of the coolest dude, Triumph. These days they just make bikes (some fucking rad bikes, look at the new Triumph Speed Tripple) but back in the day they made cars. I mean come on, look at this:

And the name, Triumph Spitfire, doesn't get much cooler. Admittedly it was only a little 1.5L roadster that had a tendency to rust instantly and break down every 40 miles, but still, when it comes to British cars you really can't outdo a Spitfire, unless you go for a Jowett Jupiter:

My Grandad had one, the engine design was actually sold to Subaru once the company was liquidated, that's something you don't hear much, one of the most iconic engines in the world was originally based off a 1.5L British flat 4.

Sorry, saw a thread about British cars and went full on nerdgasm. You can say whatever you want about British cars, but you can't deny they're fucking elegant

I was actually going to include Triumph and have it be in the spot Vauxhall took. I would've loved to include Austin Healey and MG too. It sure is a shame that polls on here have a maximum of 10 options..

Just because I thought they looked cool when I was a kid.

Ha, I love Top Gear! He's so right about JAAAAAG owners :lol3:

Yeah, McLaren is awesome! My favorite car would have to be the F1 from the 90s. I've seen a few MP4-12Cs driving around. Simply stunning when you see one on a regular overcast day haha...
I also randomly saw a Rolls Royce Wraith just out driving on a rainy sunday afternoon. I thought it was a Chrysler at first, but I was so wrong...

I voted Jaguar because my family has an MG, a Triumph, and a Jag and Jaguar is the only one of those up there. We dont have one, but Austin Healy deserves an honorable mention too
