Happy new year, everyone! This is Josh, and I’m here to announce to you about my new 2020 project that will be the ‘spiritual successor’ to The Greatest Vote Ever. But this time, we’re not dealing with the whole lineup of cars, but rather a special breed of homologation vehicles.

The overall system will be run similarly to The Greatest Vote Ever. Firstly, I will be receiving your nominations for Finding the Holy Grail of Homologation Specials through the comments below. This time, only 32 cars will be handpicked by myself with the advice of other journalists here on Drivetribe. Of course, I cannot guarantee that the car you have nominated will be on the final list, but I will be more than sure to consider the historical importance, variety of the lineup, and most of all, the pure charm of the cars.

Once the lineup is completed, a single-elimination tournament will be done to select the final winner of the project at the end of the day. The poll will be using the newly introduced ‘Battle’ type poll (Thank you, DT). Polls will usually be checked 2 or 3 days after the initial release. Although a fixed time to check the polls are generally unneeded, in case we have a very close vote(like the M3 vs Giulia Quadrifoglio, which was 50.1 vs 49.9), I will be noting a specific time when the winner is determined.

Also, to clarify, I will be looking for homologation ‘specials’, not just homologation ‘vehicles’. For example, a 991 GT3RS is a homologation vehicle. But we all know that the 993 GT2 Evo is a bit more unique, and the 996 GT1-98 is even more extreme. So, when nominating, think about “What makes this vehicle special?” instead of the basic question of “Is this a homologation vehicle or not”. Most of all, I must clarify beforehand that the TVR Speed 12 will NOT be included in this poll, as it was never homologated. Sorry, TVR fans, but this has to be fair.

  • Here's one I don't expect anyone else to comment: Citroen BX 4TC. Oh, and Lancia O37, Delta Integrale, Sierra RS500, E30 M3-the obvious suspects

    • Well the BX 4TC was interesting, but it never really performed well in WRC, and the homologation cars did have a lot of build quality issues, resulting in them being scrapped... Ironically, it made the car quite rare and highly sought after!

  • Also add the McLaren F1 GTR to the list as its the road going version of the McLaren F1 GT LM a Le Mans legend.

    • So, I did some research and it is a bit confusing.

      F1 GTR: The one that raced at Le Mans (The normal F1 was the homologation vehicle for it)

      F1 LM: 5 cars that were built as an homage to the GTR(not the homologation vehicle)
