EVO 100 greatest drivers cars.....

latest issue has a massive article, on the contributors opinions on the greats for driving pleasure. All the usual suspects, from the hypercars, down to supercars, sportscars, super saloons, hot hatches, and niche models. But......

somethings missing, and it becomes more apparant when you see what is in there, renault, peugeot, vw all represented, bmw, present, audi, check, but apart from an Alfasud, and Delta evo, no representation from the mainstream Italian makers.

no 75, junior, guilia, 131 super mirafiori, strada, 500, nothing from the mass market. even evo recent budget hero the 100hp doesn't get a look in.

has the ability to inject the "thrill of driving" been lost by fiat group from anything not wearing a donkey badge or busted fork? or was it never there?

Re: EVO 100 greatest drivers cars.....

A pretty pisspoor list if you ask me. I think they've got far too many modern cars in there especially when they harp on about older cars having so much more feel.....

Re: EVO 100 greatest drivers cars.....

Having just read this article I think they were probably spot on. They all seem to be looking for the same thing in a drivers car. They have the advantage of having driven just about all of them which gives them a better opinion over most others. It would have been vogue to have nominated all supercars but they didn't; I'd say that was pretty gutsy of them to state their top 10/100 like this.

Re: EVO 100 greatest drivers cars.....

So what was the top 100? It'll probably be months before we get this edition of Evo over here.

Re: EVO 100 greatest drivers cars.....

Thanks for uploading the list, not sure that it would be an easy task, to list your best 100 I find it hard enough to list my own favourite cars that I have owned lol
