    100 Greatest Cars (40-31)

    Getting closer


    40. Pagani Zonda S
    There is seemingly no shortage of minted entrepreneurs who want to own their own supercar company, but very, very few actually make it. Horatio Pagani is one man who managed the feat, thanks to his producing one of the most spectacular and well-engineered supercars of all time.




    39. TVR T400 R
    TVRs new Russian owner wants to turn the Blackpool company into a serious player in the sports car market. If it can add some quality and reliability to cars that look as amazing as the T400 R, and retain its absolutely terrifying performance, then it'll have no problems.




    38. Fiat 500
    One of the cutest cars ever, the Fiat 500 used an air-cooled rear-mounted engine driving the rear wheels, just like a Porsche 911. With 13bhp, it's just a little bit slower than the Porker, though.




    37. Citroen 2CV
    One of the challenges facing designers of the French 'people's car' was that it had to run across a ploughed field with a basket of eggs on board, without breaking any. It did, but the lean angle when it corners is hysterical to watch..




    36. London Taxi
    Big Ben, red post boxes, double-decker buses and black cabs are the quintessential identifiers of London. Famed for its spaciousness and ludicrously tight turning circle, black cabs are also home to sage dispensers of wisdom and wit. Or not...




    35. Dodge Charger
    The Dukes of Hazzard drove one called General Lee, which just about destroyed the Charger's street cred. Not quite, though, because the baddies drove a black one in Bullitt and that sort of cool just doesn't wear off. A 7.3-litre V8 helps, too.




    34. Lamborghini Gallardo
    With a 492bhp V10, four-wheel drive and looks to die for, what's not to like? Even better, this Lambo's been fettled by Audi, which means its well built and reliable. Not your average Italian exotic, then.




    33. Willy's Jeep
    Often credited with winning the Second World War, the Jeep was a truly heroic machine. When the contract was tendered, the American military said it needed a vehicle that was under three feet tall with a folding windscreen, could carry 600lbs and was rectangular in shape. They got what they asked for and an icon was born.




    32. Dodge Viper
    4Car's editor has fond memories of spinning off the road in one of these at a closed circuit, thereby learning that Vipers bite when provoked. "I was caught out by all that torque suddenly arriving mid corner," explains Conway. So it's the car's fault, then?




    31. MINI
    We don't want to give too much away, but the original Mini did considerably better than its modern cousin. Still, the new MINI is a brilliant car to drive, if not the revolutionary package that the original was. Basically, it drives like a small BMW, which is what it is.

      It all comes from www.channel4.com/4car - it's my favourite car site. You should be able to find the previous threads amongst the rest of the general automotive section on this site.

              I can't believe that Fiat beat the Zonda
              A man named Jeffy once said, "If laziness is craziness, then I've lost my marbles...and I don't feel like trying to find them."

                I can belive Fiat beat the Zonda, i can't believe Gallardo did! They should be judged by same criteries. Both are quite new supercars, yet Zonda is faster, more exclusive, more pure Italian. Pagani made much bigger contribution to automotive world with Zonda than Lamborghini with Gallardo. Plus Gallardo has a similar-priced competitors F360/F430 and both Ferraris seems to be better.

                Was this list made by readers' votes? That would explane it...
