British cars have a strong motoring history, whether that’s through being innovative like the reliant robin, sporty and affordable like the MG, incredible off road like the Land Rover or just being insanely suave like the Aston Martin. Over the years, Britain has produced a wealth of outstanding cars – vehicles that fit every description, category and use – but which one is the best?
Here’s a quick roundup of the best British Cars:
This car defined luxury in a whole new way. Everything from the driver’s seat to the boot lining is perfectly engineered to provide a smooth, luxurious feeling. The road and engine noise is completely eliminated in the cockpit, but that doesn’t mean this car can’t move! With a 6L V12 under the bonnet, you can bet your bootstraps that when you put your foot down the car will respond.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Speaking of cars that can shift, the Vantage is a vehicle that’s known to the world as Bond Car. This thing will shoot off like a bullet, the V8 roaring like a tiger, all the while cloaking you in a prestigious glow that will leave you smiling for days. You really can’t combine luxury and sportiness quite like this!
One that’s far more affordable, yet no less fun, is the MG3. Despite being relatively new to the market, the MG3 combines a huge amount of customisation with a nimble, sporty drive allowing the common man to feel like a superstar for under £10,000. That means that you could buy a baker’s dozen of this vehicle for the cost of either of the two listed above! Forget about luxurious, the MG3 is a playful supermini that’s perfectly at home with city driving.
The Classic Mini
You can’t mention superminis without taking a look at the classic Mini. This truly British car that, sadly, can no longer be purchased new but you will find that there are plenty of great condition collectibles out there. While it may not be the safest car to drive, this is a vehicle that is supremely cool thanks to the movie Italian Joband plenty of awesome paint jobs.
An absolute legend, the E-type completely changed the face of Jaguar in the 1960s and is one of the best selling cars the company has ever had. It used innovative technology and serious engine power to wow over every sports car fan in sight – its 0-60 time of sub 7 seconds and a top speed of 150mph is just as impressive today as it was over 50 years ago! To top everything off, the E-type is incredibly stylish combining elegant curves and sharp edges to give this car a really racy look.
You won’t find a ‘standard’ car this well kitted out. The MG6 takes on a very British idea of giving you true value for money – the starting model comes with more bolt ons than many other manufacturers provide in their top level cars, including DAB radio, parking sensors and Bluetooth! With a 0-60 time of 8.4 seconds, the MG6 is no slouch but you will find that you’d fill your tank a lot less than the e-type thanks to the MG6’s 61.4 combined MPG.
Match that with the huge range of customisation options, prices starting from just £13,995 and the fact that the vehicle was designed in Britain – this really could be the best British car that you’ll see on the roads today! In fact, why not be the envy of your friends and come try it for yourself at Nathaniel Cars?
