Titled: World's Greatest Sports Car

Tiff, Vicki, Adrian, and Quentin search for the Greatest Sports Car for sell in Britian.
The cars that weren't eligible were Lamborghini Murchelogo, Pagadi Zonda, Porsche 911 Turbo, and Ferrari 360 Modena
Cause by their definition they didn't fit. Their definition was.
Adrian drives has the classic example a Austin Healy Bugeye Sprite. The definition is in it's purest form; "A car that is rwd with a manual tranmission and that was built and conceived has a rag top. It doesn't have a fold away hard top and it's no a coupe or saloon with it's roof chopped off".
"You see a sports car doesn't need stealth fighter style, sledgehammer power, fancy trim or an exotic price. It just has to make you smile."

Then they give the cars in the running of the best sports car in Britian.
Adrian drives the Radical SR3 to the shops and Tiff gives Adrian ride in the Radical at the track. But it's just to over the top to even think about it.
If you want a little less over the top then the Caterham could be for you but it's still not the winner.
Vicki drives the Ford StreetKa in Caan has a break.
Vicki start's the rest of the list of sports cars in the running with the Mazda Miata MX-5, Toyota MR 2, Lotus Elise 111S, Vauxhall VX 220 (the best Elise and what it should have been from the start) Vicki drives it but none of these are the best.
