Come on, fellow petrolheads, this question deserves an answer, and we'd love to hear your proposals. But before you do that, let's take a moment and see a potential list of nominees.
The list doesn't belong to us and it is, in fact, a worldwide poll to find the best British car ever, managed by Classic & Sports Car magazine. However, the search for the best car the UK had to give since the beginning of time is not an easy task.

If you're wondering why, the answer is plain and simple: because the Brits knew how to build cars, and they came up with so many amazing automobiles that even a ten-car list is hard to put together without leaving a few icons on the touchline.

The global pool will close in two weeks time, on August 1 but it looks like the Jaguar E-Type is leading the ranks, followed by the Mini Cooper S, Austin Seven and McLaren F1 in fourth place.

The fifth, sixth and seventh spots are taken by Range Rover, Lotus Seven and Bentley Speed Six while the last three positions see the likes of Ford GT40, Jaguar XKSS and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. We don't know about you, but in my book the McLaren F1 would sit higher up in the rankings, and the same goes for the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

Sure, subjectivity is the name of the game here, that's why we want to hear your opinion on this matter. So, what would you pick for the best British car ever built?
