The 100 Greatest Drivers' Cars.

Discussion in 'Car Comparisons' started by Ctrl, Sep 23, 2009.

  1. I just got the Evo magazine which featured an article about the best drivers' cars of all time and I thought that it was quite surprising. Not the winner though.

  2. I bought this mag yesterday, loving every bit of it. Even if I didn't drive the very great majority of these cars, it's just really nice to read about.

    edit: that the Clio V6 was ranked this high surprised me, though. I heard it was quite a tricky thing.
     
  3. Now they can add the LP-670 in the top 10
     
  4. Why? It's on 33?
    I don't really get you?
     
  5. I don't relly understand why? It's already pretty good at 33.
     
  6. waitin for raging balls to go balistic when he sees that CCX is 2 places in front of F1
     
  7. Well, the additional CCX text then:

    "Full-bore acceleration in second and third is a torque and fury fest that would lay waste to a Murciélago LP-640. Phenomenal brakes, too. The chassis has mighty grip and good basic balance but it's trickier. You don't have to dig too deeply into your reserves of car control to snap the tail back from a small slide but drifting isn't advisable. One of the most exciting cars a great deal of money can buy."

    And for the F1:

    "Still the most single-minded, uncompromising supercar ever built, and blessed with almost certainly the greatest engine ever fitted to a road car. Gordon Murray, hater of excess weight, lover of efficiency and creator of the F1, said at the time that it was the best drivers' car ever. It's not quite - the steering's too heavy, the brakes too dead feeling, and it can be quite an intimidating car to drive quickly. But with 627bhp to hurtle a ton, a perfectly central driving position and minimal dimensions, it is still an utterly fabulous thing."
     
  8. Renault is just too awesome.
     
  9. McLaren F1 should be in top 10.
     
  10. yea i agree idk why the nissan placed higher when its not as involving.
     
  11. LOL at putting M3 ahead of M3 CSL
     

  12. No biotching about the MX-5 being in the top ten?

    When I posted a similar article years ago people just went mad.

    So glad to see it up there again.

     
  13. That's the E30 M3, though
    srsly an icon
     
  14. mx5 SHOULD be up there.
     
  15. This list seems to be biased towards earlier cars. For example, 996 GT3 is waaaaaay above 997 GT3 RS!

    That's a shame because the GT3, like many cars on this list, has actually gotten a lot better in just a few short years. And this list refuses to acknowledge this progress.
     
  16. That list is uber shit.
     
  17. 89 is the greatest in my books.
     
  18. its ok where it is
     
  19. Im surprised M5s are so low
     
  20. Doesn't really surprise me, but this list is pretty gay to begin with.
     
  21. the e39 is two places below the McLaren F1 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/confused.gif"></A> I think that's fantastic for a sedan.
     
  22.  
  23. I can live with the winner.
     
  24. 12. Ferrari F40
    ...
    8. Ferrari F50

    Go F50 go.
     
  25. In the magazine the F50 was actually tied for 7th, and hell yes, the F50 will never stop being my favorite Ferrari.
