THE results of a global poll to find the world’s favourite supercar will be unveiled at London’s Alexandra Palace in October.
Organised by the Classic and Sports Car Show, the poll allows motoring enthusiasts in the general public to vote from a select shortlist hand-picked by the magazine’s experts. Each expert chose three contenders from different eras in motoring history and the public are invited to choose online at the group’s website.
Anyone who votes will automatically enter into a special ballot offering five pairs of gold tickets to the main event. The full shortlist can be found online and includes a magnificent range of motoring gems, from the Bugatti Veyron to the Lamborghini Muira.
“We’ve burnt the midnight oil to come up with probably the most in-depth list of supercars ever compiled, a true century of pioneering machines,” said the magazine’s editor James Elliott. “There are some incredible icons, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti, but also unsung heroes in the pursuit of going as fast as possible.
I can’t wait to see what people vote for from each decade, and it’s going to be a real show stopper bringing the finalists to Alexandra Palace this autumn.” There will be two rounds of voting, the first to select winners from each decade and those will then compete in a final ballot, with voting to take place in September.
The finalists will be on display at Alexandra Palace, a hugely desirable outing for fans. Enthusiasts can vote at www.classicandsport scarshow.com but be warned it’ll be tough to make a choice. From a Mercedes 1908 GP, to 1930’s classics like the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900, the choice stretches right through the deep catalogue of car history.
Post war choices include the Jaguar XKSS and Ferrari 250GT SWB, while the swinging 60s boasts the timeless Lamborghini Muira and De Tomaso Mangusta. From the second half of the century you’ll find the original Porsche 911 Turbo and McLaren F1, while 21st century wonders include the Bugatti Veyron, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Koenigsegg CCX.
