    I think when it comes down to it, it could very well be the Mini. You need something, in my view, that is 1) Practical 2) Sporty 3) Good performer 4) Comfortable 5) Reliable So I think I pick the Mini, or like an '85 Volvo 240 Turbo. Or pretty much any Volvo in the last 30 years. However they cost a lot to maintain, or so I read.

    DS is an undeniably great car. The engine, though small, had all the power you'll ever need, and it's still futuristic NOW! I think it could have saved Citroen in the 70s if they has tried to sell it in post-fuel-crisis America. The small engine (2.3 litres on the biggest-engined model) would give it the economy people wanted, and it had the size and performance that the Japanese imports of the day lacked.
    DS for "best car", but 1955 300SLR coupe for coolest. 180 mph in the most beautiful car on earth (DS being second, Jaguar XKE third).

    At the current retromobile exhibition in Paris 50 years of DS is being celebrated. Apart from a number of complete cars, there are also some engines on show that were intended to replace the four pot, but never made it. There are two flat sixes, a V6 and even a a three liter V8 designed in 1960 with 130 BHP.

    exactly cheap components means accessibility to everyone

    how many people have driven let alone own a mclaren f1, can't really be pronounced 'best car ever' if noone has driven it :P

    i bet you could pick up a beetle for the price of one wheelnut for the f1
