World Cup of Cars Group 1

Group 1. Do you prefer the the incredibly pretty KG, the aggressive muscular 'Vette, the MG or the Tommy?

I love the Karmann, it's just so pretty. However, I have to go with the Corvette. Firstly because it was my nomination and secondly, just look at it. It just screams aggression and horsepower.

I thought the KG looked pretty sharp too. The MG is about as photogenic as I am and the Tommy Cannon is hard to find pics of.

The MG looks the best of that lot. The corvette looks crap, the Tommy is a poor copy of a Ferrari 360 and the KG looks like a squashed Beetle

The blue thing is nice but it's not a classic, hence me already forgetting what it is/was.

PS, where is the other option etc.?

It's close between the Vette and the Karmann.

I love the Karmann, saw one at the weekend and it is just a beautiful, unusual, balanced shape.

On balance, I take the Corvette, because I just want to be able to walk up to one, and make out like it belongs to me. And then have a skiddy exit.

Of course I had to go with the Karmann - it was my choice
The Corvette does look ok, but the rear end looks out of proportion with the large overhang behind the wheels

I actually rather like the MG. But you think it's beautiful?

I admit I would have had a problem in this group. I struggle with the KG to look past everything I dislike about it and admit that it's a pretty car (but has NOTHING else good about it at all).

Luckily, I think the 'Vette is better looking anyway, so problem evaded.

The Corvette is bit like the Brera. The proportions aren't perfect but to my eyes that adds to how it looks rather than detracting. I'm really rooting for the KG though, I'm glad you picked it because it's definitely in my top ten. Shame it came up against something in my top one.

I think people have misunderstood what this poll is .
They must have, cos they're voting for the MG as best looking car ??????
