Corvette was just selected as one of the 25 Greatest Cars of All Time!
"There is no scientific formula for coming up with a shortlist of the greatest cars ever. We gathered the best brains the magazine has and let them argue and rant with heart and head. The result is a list as intriguing as it is eclectic." So begins the September print issue of Automobile Magazine's curious article.
Working from a preliminary list of 150 prospects, and seeking to exalt the best of the best, five vehicles were selected for each of five categories. This is truly a fascinating and thought-provoking read. Notice that four are American and the balance European; no Asian entries. The winners:
Ford Model T
DYNAMICS / DRIVER'S CARS
BMW E30 M3
Porsche 911 Carrera RS
VW Rabbit GTI
INNOVATION / TECHNOLOGICALLY MARVELOUS
Benz Patent Motorwagen
Citroen Traction Avant
Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Alfa Romeo 8C 2900
Dodge Charger Daytona
Keep in mind that the full story is only in the print edition. On the other hand, the website provides downloadable photos of the winners.
