Jeremy Clarkson remains one of the most respected automotive experts not only in Great Britain, but also in the world. He is regularly invited to prestigious awards, where he expresses his opinion on new products. This time, the TV presenter was asked to choose the best sports car and the best family car. In the first category, he turned his attention to the Eagle Lightweight GT, a replica of the sporty Jaguar E-Type. When creating this model, craftsmen manually made an aluminum body, but technically it is very different from the original, since a more powerful engine is installed under its hood. We are talking about an in-line 6-cylinder power unit with a working volume of 4.7 liters. Its performance reaches 385 horsepower, and the torque is at 508 Nm. The old sports car had a 3.8-liter engine that develops 300 hp.
Jeremy Clarkson called the MINI John Cooper Works GP hot hatch the people's car. This is a limited edition vehicle produced in the amount of 3 thousand copies. It has an engine from the BMW X2 M35i crossover. It generates 306 “horses”, accelerating the car to the first hundred in 5.2 seconds.
This year, experts opted for British-made models, and in 2019 he gave preference not only to the domestic auto industry. The best popular car according to his version was the Bentley Continental GT V8, and the Ferrari 488 Pista sports car.
