It’s unlikely that anyone has counted up all the individual models produced over the years by the British motor industry, but the total must certainly be well into the thousands. Inevitably, some of them have been better-looking than others.

Rather than categorise every single one of them, which would take years, we’ve put together a short list, split equally between those we think are very attractive and those we believe to be less so.

This is, of course, a personal view, so let’s have no arguments. If you reckon the Mini Moke is the last word in automotive gorgeousness but can’t stand the sight of a Jaguar E-Type, I may disagree, but I can’t say you’re wrong.
