Our friends at Top Gear (the magazine, not the TV show) are currently celebrating the publication’s twentieth birthday. In honor of that milestone, the BBC-owned book is naming what it thinks are the 50 greatest cars from the past 20 years. Now, this is TG’s list, which means it’s a bit more focused on European brands and models.
For example, the Vauxhall Ampera is listed, rather than the Chevrolet Volt, and the only American performance car is the Ford GT – there are no Vipers, no Corvettes, and no muscle cars. Of course, there’s also a distinct lack of cars from Jaguar, as well, so the list isn’t quite as blatantly Eurocentric as it appears on first blush.
Still, there are a number of things that are no-brainers, along with a few of the quirky choices that could only come from a magazine as irreverent as Top Gear (Dacia Duster anyone?). All told, it’s an interesting look at some seriously interesting cars. But we want to know what you think. Chime in down in the Comments, and let us know which vehicles you think deserve their place, which vehicles you think should be added, and which have no business in such illustrious company.
