Jaguar’s iconic E-Type has won the race to be crowned the “greatest car of all time” in a new poll of motorists.
The E-Type was put at the top of the podium from a list of 100 by more than 2,000 British drivers quizzed ahead of the return of Wheeler Dealers on the Discovery Channel next week.
It beat seven other British classics, including the Mini, Aston Martin DB5 and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, to head the top 10.
The Porsche 911 and Volkswagen Beetle were the only foreign representatives in the top 10 of the all-time survey, finishing third and fourth respectively, with Ferrari’s F40 missed out in 11th.
Meanwhile, the Ford Capri won the title of the car they previously considered “embarrassing” but would now be proud to own, fending off the Morris Minor and Triumph Stag.

- Jaguar E-Type
- Porsche 911
