Spotted in games such as Grand Theft Auto, Grand Turismo and Need for Speed, the people’s car beat supercars including the Ferrari Enzo to the top spot.
Car buying comparison site carwow analysed thousands of video games with the help of online resource, the Internet Game Cars Database to create the Top 10.
American classic the Chevrolet Camaro is second on the list (Far Cry, Dead Rising 3 and The Sims).

A more unusual vehicle makes it to fourth place – the Chevrolet Step Van is a type of truck that has a number of uses from delivery trucks to SWAT vans. The van has been featured in games like Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and Twisted Metal.
