The 30 best cars of all time
The very highly thought about list that compiles the best cars ever
Welcome, everyone. This is the highly opinionated list of the 30 best cars to exist. I've thought about this for a month now and thought of at least 100 cars. Thank you to everyone who voted and commented on every poll related to this list. Here we go. It's gonna be a long one.
30. Ariel Nomad
The Ariel Nomad
This is the best off-roader to exist. Super cool to drive, on and off road. This is a true swiss army car. Careful after mud-driving. You wouldn't want the seats dirty.
29. Citroen DS3 Racing
The DS3 Racing
The only Front Wheel Drive car here and arguably the most biased (I own it.) I love this thing. There are many hot hatches like this but there isn't anything better. This car is closer to the original Mini Cooper S than the new Mini is. Perfection.
28. Ford GT '05
The Ford GT
Ohhhh, yes. This car is incredible. Lazy revving supercharged V8 teamed with a British chassis and fuel economy so bad that the annoying Greta Thundberg would weep. I adore it more than the original and the 2017 GT.
27. Porsche 911 (997.2) GT3 RS 3.8
This 911 with the really long name.
Take a deep breath after reading that name...... Ok. We're back. This exact 911 is number 27. There was a faster 4.0 911 but this 3.8 engine is cooler but a bit slower. And look at the livery: it's gorgeous. It comes with a manual too. The purest GT3 RS and the greatest.
26. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
the SLS AMG
This car is such a laugh. You don't go fast, really, in thus. You go sideways very slowly. There are other mad AMG's like the SL65 AMG but this thing takes 26 for it's extravagant doors, mind-bending torque and gorgeous engine note. A bit of a show-off. Isn't it?
25. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition
the McLaren SLR 722
The culmination of the best (one of) supercar brands teaming up with one of the best German brands (we'll ignore Mercedes's reliability issues.) You get the SLR. One of the best supercars of the 2000's. Make that even more powerful and even nicer to look at. You get the 722. This car is amazing. 'Nuff said.
24. Lamborghini Miura P400 SV
The Miura SV
Do I have to explain the Miura? No, not really. But, this is the Miura SV: the finale of the 2nd best Lamborghini model. Everything (mostly) wrong with the original and S was sorted. Especially it's tendency to flip at high speed and the fact that it could explode in a high speed crash.
23. Ariel Atom V8 500
The Atom V8
The Atom V8 is an engineering masterpiece. How all track cars should feel. It is terrifyingly fast. It probably isn't anything to go by but I managed a 1:12.6 on the Top Gear Test Track on Forza 7. Faster than any other car that has lapped the track in real life.
22. AC Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
The 427 S/C.
The fastest Cobra. Forget the Mustang, Challenger, Charger, Cougar, Barracuda, Corvette and whatever else. This is the best 60's American car. Fit with 60's safety, handling and brakes. S/C means Semi-Competition.
21. Ferrari 250 GTO
The 250 GTO.
This is the third best Ferrari ever and most expensive car ever. For good reason. This is beautiful, fast and has that beautiful, creamy 2.5 litre V12.
20. Noble M600
The M600? Noble? 20th? Yes. The Noble M600 is brilliant. It has perfect slipperiness for fun drifting at the limit. It's twin-turbocharged Volvo XC90 V8 is good for 225+mph. Proper hypercar.
19. Dodge Viper SRT GTS '13
The Viper GTS.
The Ultimate Viper. The best American car to be made. Probably ever now. Yes, the ACR is better but objectively this is. Higher top speed helps. Just like the M600, this is a perfect drifter too.
18. Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni
The Gallardo Balboni
The third best Lamborghini model. Built to commemorate the Ex-Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni. The actual Gallardo isn't as goo as the Miura but thus exact one is. RWD and 100kg lighter weight makes this brilliant to drive. Perfect send off to Valentino.
17. BMW 1-series M coupe
The 1M Coupe.
Ok mate. The 1M. Are you OK? Yes, massively. This is the best BMW ever. No argument. Yes, in my recent poll it lost to the M5 E60 but this 1M is much more interesting to drive and extremely fast. And the 1M doesn't deal with crippling repair bills like the M5 does because the 1M has a twin turbocharged Z4 engine.
16. Ferrari 458 Italia
The 458 Italia.
The 2nd best Ferrari. Very 'sciency' and 'physicsy' is the 458 but it brings out the perfect package. Last N/A V8 Ferrari. The 488 is pretty boring, to be honest. And I mean the looks are mouth-watering.
15. Bugatti EB16.4 Veyron Super Sport
The Veyron SS
The original Veyron and Chiron are cars I'm critical of. They are built for rich old people who are having an apocalyptically massive midlife crisis. But the SS is the driver's Bugatti. Scary speed and very nice handling and still has the comfort of a Volkswagen.
14. McLaren MP4-12C
The revival of the ultimate company pt3. The F1, SLR then this. Like the 458, the tech of this car is amazing. But the 12C is faster, better, stronger.
13. Pagani Huayra
The best Italian car company with their 2nd best car: the Huayra. Air defying aerodynamics, a CLK GTR based twin turbo 6 litre engine with 730bhp. This gave Pagani the jump from super to hypercar.
12. Koenigsegg CCXR Edition
The CCX was the best Koenigsegg ever. Then in 2008, they made it better. The CCXR. 1004hp, 2.9 second 0-60. Doesn't beat the Veyron SS but around a track and to drive the Koenigsegg batters it.
11. Porsche 959
The ultimate Porsche 911 (kind of.) This is revolutionary. It is actually closer to the Veyron than the F1 is. AWD, Comfy driving, Somewhat easy driving and they lost money on every one of them made. Perfect. I've said that a lot now.
10. Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV
The Murcielago SV
The best Lambo ever. So mad yet so nice to drive. The disease of the old Lambos. The Impossibility to drive them. 661bhp and looks to make you faint. Sheer pleasure.
Ford RS200 Evolution
The RS200 Evolution
Supercar beating performance in a sports car package. The best rally car and with 500bhp, the closest you could get to the 700bhp rally cars. It held the world record for the fastest 0-60 for 12 years: 3 seconds. In 1986!
8. Lexus LFA
The true car of the decade. No special techy bits, no new things. Just driving nirvana. Beautiful V10 engine, the coolest rev counter ever made and the special seal of approval for the best car Jeremy Clarkson said he'd ever driven also given to the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta.
7. Porsche Carrera GT
The Carrera GT
The best Porsche ever. The LFA x5. I think that's about it.
6. Pagani Zonda Cinque
The Zonda Cinque
The ultimate Zonda, the ultimate Pagani, the ultimate modern supercar, the ultimate car for the 21st century.
5. Bugatti EB110 Super Sport
The best Bugatti ever made.
4. RUF CTR 'Yellowbird'
The best 911 ever. The end.
3. Ferrari F40
The best Ferrari ever made.
2. Jaguar XJ220
The best Jaguar ever made.
1. McLaren F1
The McLaren F1.
The best car to ever exist. Past, present and future. This is it: the McLaren F1.
And these cars will remain for the test of time as the best 30 ever.
Thank you. What do you kids think? The next decade is going to be hell. No better time to make this
