Can't decide? Worry not, let the lovely Drivetribe community help you by telling their choices.
Tejas Kokcha - McLaren Senna
While many might say that the McLaren Senna deserved the name of Ayrton Senna, I don't agree. I think that this is just a McLaren 720S on steroids. The fact that this car got the 'Senna' name but it overrated. If this car would have been called the '750LT' or something else like that, it wouldn't have been my choice for the most overrated car. I think that the Senna doesn't deserve its name.

"So, I'm nominating a batch of performance Japanese cars from the sort-of 90s and early 00s period. You know, the Skyline GT-Rs, Supras and stuff like that.
The fan bases are ridiculous and often quite toxic, the attention from people on the internet is too much for anyone to handle. And lastly, the fact they're worth more than the exotics they competed against kinda renders them useless in terms of their original purpose (which was to provide supercar-level performance at a more affordable price).
It's almost as if the people who religiously worship these cars have no idea that others exist. Others that are just as capable, if not better! That's why I think they're extremely overrated."
Ronnie Prasad - Kia Stinger
"I'd like to pick the Kia Stinger. People have made a very big deal out of it.
Firstly, the front doesn’t look very appealing. Secondly, you can have an Audi S4 for the price of the stinger as their MSRPs are relatively close.
Thirdly, the badge. Kia isn’t as well renowned as BMW or Jaguar and other similar companies, and them making a sports saloon is kinda cool, but based on the badge, it’s kinda weird seeing this from Kia."

"The Dacia Sandero - boring, and while it might have been a good unassuming underdog, everyone seems to wax about it, which means it's not an underdog; it's celebrated mediocrity."
