The most revolutionary car in the world

From the Ford Model T to the Tesla Model S, Autocar is giving its readers the chance to have their say as part of a poll to crown this year’s Autocar Readers’ Champion.

Autocar have shortlisted 39 cars, ranging from city cars and MPVs to hybrids and supercars; the only criteria for selection being that the model in question has played a significant role in the story of the motor car.

Among those in the list are the original 1957 Fiat 500 and 1948 Land Rover, 1941 Willys MB, 1970 Range Rover, 1989 Lexus LS400 and Audi R8 among many others.

The Autocar Readers’ Champion will be named at the Autocar Awards held at Silverstone Circuit, on 23 May. Last year’s champion was the Lotus Elise which topped the poll to find the best car currently on sale in Britain.

Mark Tisshaw, Autocar editor, said ‘Innovation and upheaval is what the automotive industry is all about, and Autocar has been covering it each and every step of the way, since 1895. We’ve picked the cars that we feel have really left their mark on history but now we want our well-informed readers to tell us which is the most important of all.’
