World Cup of Cars Group 2

Our first group of death. Any one of these could win outright, though personally I've always thought the GTO a little awkward from some angles. I nominated the Iso so I'm picking that as a classic long nose, short tail GT car. That California though....

The Ferrari's are just too obvious, and the Cali is just like a 90s T-bird in reverse.

The Alfa looks a bit old hat to me now.

I love the Iso.....it's like a Montreal gone body building.

All nice motors. Unfortunately some folk will be bias to the Alfa. Whilst I like it, it really should not be in the same league (oops it's world cup ) as the two Ferraris here.

I struggled with this one.

I fail to see how the 8C is leading this when it has a 250GTO and a 250 California to contend with

Glossing over the fact that the 8C Spider is better looking than the Competizione

Alfa bias clearly... the 250 GT California is the best looking car ever, it should walk it

I'm with Gladys on this one. The 8C, although a cracker, is missing some je ne sais quoi compared to the Californication...

Personally, I think the GTO is nicer looking but looks are not something arguable

The poll is now closed and the 8C and the Ferrari 250GT California SWB both have 9 votes each....

What happens now???

Presumably they both go through to the knockout stages and the 250GTO goes home early, which is a travesty and a crime against democracy

I would liken it also to England's early exit from their own Rugby World Cup in 2015, but that was hilarious

The GTO is our first big name faller. Not for the first time. When Road &Track tested it against its American namesake back in the day, it got it's arsed kicked then too.

I probably agree with the order of the vote here, a little surprised how close it was... thought the California would easily win. The GTO, while being a fabulous racer, I wouldn't say it's particularly good looking
