Uk cars all the way; Aston Martin, TVR, MG, Rolls Royce, Jagaur, Bentley, Lotus.

All highly respected car companies making some of the finest vehicles in the world. Plus the brits make triumph, and Triumph makes some really nice bikes, the cars leave something to be desired, but the bikes are top notch!

Not another 1, most people who can't think of a good American car don't live in the us & it goes with Americans as well with uk cars. ffs people stop bashing other countries rides just cuz you know the very basics. Only a few people could post a valid opinion here & that counts chrisV, vwhobo, & a few others imho.

Ford designs, engineers and builds cars in the US and UK (and many other places as well). BMW designs, engineers and builds cars in Germany and the US. Those facts lead me directly to my question. In a thread titled "UK vs US cars", what exactly is your point? I'm assuming you even have one.

I think stalemate.

UK has the lotus, which proves that you don't need horespower to go fast.
US has the Viper, which is pure power
UK has the DB9, Which is just amazing
US has the S7
UK has the Vanquish
US has the CTS-V

The list goes on and on. Stalemate

Know what your talking about before you post
Much of the development and chassis engineering was completed by Ray Mallock Racing who are based in England. So not US or English, same goes for the GT40.

Ford is a company that originated in America is it not? I dont like American cars except for the GTO and older Mustangs. I prefer UK cars like BMWs.

You are a blithering idiot. Even if you know absolutely nothing about cars, which is apparent, all you had to do was read my post. In it is the information that you so desperately lack. BMW is a German company.

I don't know, maybe you actually need a map of Europe. Germany and the United Kingdom are different countries, notice to names.
