World Cup of Cars Group 3

You've got the hang of it now I expect. I make pointed comments about the ones I don't like, you all ignore me.

Here your choices are a Dutch mentalist thing, something very English, a big whale with a Metro engine and an Aston. For me, The Aston is a brute but it ain't pretty, the Spyker is just too OTT, the XJ220 is fuggin massive, and the morgan just makes me smile.

Which Vantage? There were two in the list I think, the 80's version and the 90's version.

Ah, I see them. Sorry, I hadn't looked at the posting time and realised I was jumping the gun.

I think it's quite a handsome car, and looks immense. But not pretty.

The train :(

I went for the Morgan and the Vantage would come second. I would not describe either of the other two as pretty.

You weren't. I hadn't attached them.

It has presence in spades but its predecessor had that and movie star looks too (probably because it was mostly nicked from the late 60s Mustang).

Every other group runner up is going to hope to be drawn against the winner of this one.

Well, the spyker can be OTT. But still, had to choose really nice cars right?

I just liked it being so unique, and i find it pretty

Too many tweed wearing pipe smokers in here, it would appear...

Arrgghhh..... Another hard one... I like 3 of them. XJ220 is one of my all time favourite cars - I had 2 scalextric cars when i was very young and have loved them ever since. The Spyker is great because its a bit strange and dutch and then the Morgan, I love Morgans...

Yeah, can't disagree with you. It's exactly why I nominated the earlier one when I saw this one had cropped up. Was hoping they'd have a face off.

You get that it's not whether you like the car, right? It's supposed to be entirely about the best looking.

If it was about the car, I'd have picked the Aston without a blink. As it is, I've had to go for the Morgan. It looks exactly right for what it is, and is very nicely proportioned. The Aston is fantastically brutish, but certainly not beautiful. The Jag hasn't aged well in my opinion, and is a little boring in the detail. The Spyker looks like a made up car in a computer game.

The current +8 gets to 60 in 4.5 seconds and tops out at 154MPH. It will certainly get your tweed flapping but I fear it might blow the baccy right out of your pipe.

Morgan. I don't like any of the others. A clear winner for me in this group.
