The ever-elegant Jaguar E-Type is leading a worldwide poll by Classic & Sports Car magazine.

The poll is to find the best British car ever and there have been thousands of votes by the public so far.

There are a number of iconic cars on the list that is a lot closer than you would imagine as the E-Type is very narrowly leading the Mini Cooper S, which sits in second place currently. Just looking at the list and trying to pick one is quite the task given the legendary cars that are listed.

The vote standings currently look like this heading into the final few weeks before the poll closes on the 1st August. There are no specific numbers on how many votes each car has but we can imagine it to be very close.

  1. Jaguar E-type
  2. Mini Cooper S
  3. Austin Seven
  4. McLaren F1
  5. Range Rover
  6. Lotus Seven
  7. Bentley Speed Six
  8. Ford GT40
  9. Jaguar XKSS
  10. Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

So where will your vote go? You only get one so think hard and choose wisely! We will be doing the same.

The winner of the poll will be revealed at the London Classic and Sports Car show, which is held at Alexandra Palace from 30th October to 1st November. Head here to vote.
