The greatest cars of the last 50 years

Published: 22 June 2012 Updated: 26 January 2015

Here’s a tricky one: what’s the greatest car of the past 50 years?

We’re asking our readers to vote for their favourite cars produced in the lifetime of CAR Magazine, between 1962 and the present day.

Vote in CAR’s poll to name the greatest car of the past 50 years

Your browser does not support iframes.

It’s a mammoth task – and to get the ball rolling, we’ve gathered together a starting point for debate in our poll below.

It’s all part of our #CAR50 activities as we gear up for the 50th birthday of CAR Magazine this autumn. Your votes will help shape a feature planned in a future issue of the mag.

What to vote for? You can back cars that you think moved the needle, either stylistically or technically. Vote for cars that you think are exceptional, the most thrilling for enthusiasts or simply the greatest, period.

Add your own suggestions to CAR’s poll

We know this is bound to be a controversial list, so feel free to add your own nominations in the ‘Other’ box at the foot of the page. We’ll monitor the poll weekly and, where there’s a groundswell of support for a particular model, we’ll add that to the poll.

So get your thinking caps on and get voting. Only one vote allowed each and we’re keeping the results a surprise for the future feature in CAR Magazine.

We await the results with interest!
