These cars are for people that like to work on cars-period.
Give me a sunny day with the top down and it is just plain fun-oh yeah,make sure you have a towing rider on your insurance policy.

It is perhaps more important to list those that have been milestones. For example: the Morris 1000 as a landmark ‘everyday-car’, MGB as the most popular Sportscar, Austin 7 – because it was licensed to the Japanese for their first ‘popular’ car: the Hino 7. Should the original Landrover not be included too? – it inspired just about everything since that has (or purports to have) off-road capability.
In other words, the list is not intended to highlight the specific virtues of a particular model, but more to establish the significant broader contribution that the vehicle made.

No AC Ace? No Range Rover? And what about the Triumpf TR4? Not to mention more modern cars…

They were the forerunner for the Mini, BMW, jeep, and Dixie. They’re no Bond car but it’s the little british car that shaped the future for the rest of them.
But the list is pretty good :)

ONLY THE BEST BRITISH SUPERCAR EVERMADE!!! 627BHP, 240MPH, WAS FASTEST CAR IN THE WORLD FOR OVER A DECADE!!
Not being angry with you mate but the f1 must be on that list.
Not to forget the beautiful Lotus Esprit, nimble, superb handling & in the case of James Bond, drivable underwater.
And the Aston V8 Vantage (old one)
And the new V12 Vantage (AM are no longer owned by Ford).
And the recent Ariel Atom!
And the Morris Minor, great car, not fast, luxuary or anything but amazing!
And the Triumph TR6,Triumph Stag & Triumph Dolomite.
Oh, and the new Mclaren MP4-12C.
Maybe next time, a top 40/45 would be a better idea, then there would be a lot more spaces!

What a dream car. Previously, i had a ’56 MGA and a 78 MGB. No comparison. While I enjoyed my MG”s
they had many problems, but the healey was perfect.
