Honoring that milestone, the BBC-owned book can be naming what it thinks will be the 50 greatest cars from days gone by 20 years. Now, that is TG’s list, this means it’s a little more centered on European brands and versions.

For instance, the Vauxhall Ampera is usually listed, as opposed to the Chevrolet Volt, and the only real American performance car may be the Ford GT – you can find no Vipers, no Corvettes, no muscle cars.

Opinion from Chris Ilson:

Something is wrong with the article, Richard Hammond of Top Gear UK is a noted American muscle car fan.  In fact he even purchased either the new Challenger or new Charger some years back.  It also makes me wonder if the Top Gear 50 greatest car’s list would include a Lexus (haha Jeremy Clarkson thinks Lexus is evil or something!).  Even more bizzare is the Audi TT, which I thought Jeremy Clarkson hated.  No surprise at the car occupying the number 1 spot, I won’t spoil it however.
