The sun was shining the other day, so the eds team here at PH we thought we'd get our personal cars out of the garage, take them up to Millbrook and blow away a few cobwebs...

Oh, all right then. Actually it was a Classic and Sportscar magazine day out organised for their new 'Best Ever Driver's Car' feature, and we weren't invited. In fact the rotters didn't even tell us about it, even though they only sit a twanged rubber band's flight away from us here at PH Towers.

Still, you'll be interested to hear the magazine's final choice of best driver's car ever was (wait for it...) the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which pipped the Macca F1 to the title.

Also in the running were these other cars pictured in this glorious shot of the top five contenders - an Alfa 8C (swoon...), Lotus Elan Sprint and Mini Cooper S.

Something for everyone then, except us. Pass the pea-shooter!

    Hmmm nice group, i think for moving the driving experience on the most in a single step though it has to be the mini.

    Nice to see the Elan at the front. But then I would be bias.

    Reckon I'll have to buy the mag as I'm interested to see that 8c in a list of best drivers cars...maybe I'm an inverse luddite (Is there such a thing?) but I just can't see it offering the same experience as a "driver's car" as the others.

    Still - nice pic!
