Classic Cars (UK) - - The List -

De To­maso Pan­tera

‘Ev­ery­thing that’s good about Seven­ties ex­cess. It looks like it’s go­ing to pounce and eat you – chest wig op­tional.’

Jensen In­ter­cep­tor

‘Svelte Ital­ian styling and Amer­i­can mus­cle, yet still quintessen­tially British – a proper chap’s car.’

As­ton Martin V8 Van­tage

‘Thor­ough­bred to Jensen’s mon­grel. Price tag as mus­cu­lar as its styling’

Iso Grifo

‘An­other fine ex­am­ple of US grunt in an ex­quis­ite pack­age, a rare beauty.’

Bris­tol Fighter

‘Heroically bonkers last hur­rah from Bris­tol. Modern, yes. Clas­sic? In­stant.’

Fer­rari 365 GTB/4 ‘Day­tona’

‘Good old-fash­ioned Fer­rari up-front V12 sex­i­ness. Truly iconic.’

Porsche 959

‘Un­der­stated (well, for Group B any­way) guided mis­sile that you could re­ally use ev­ery day. An awe­some ma­chine.’

Maserati Ghi­bli

‘Ev­ery­one’s men­tal im­age of the ar­che­typ­i­cal se­duc­tive Seven­ties su­per­car.’
