50 British Cars That Changed The Automotive Industry

jag.jpg

If we told you the answer was "the Jaguar E-Type", you'd probably be able to guess the question. But the best looking car ever made isn't the only contribution Britain has made to shaping the automotive industry.

Before the E-Type came the Phantom, and after the purring cat came the DB5 - and that's before you reach the powerhouses of the 1990's. In fact, a glance through Design911's guide to the 50 British cars that changed the face of auto design would suggest that Britain has produced just as many pin-up stars and poster visions as the likes of the Italians and the Germans.

Lose yourself in the fifty glorious vehicles represented with clean, neat illustrations below. And then start saving for that new F-Type.
