Now you’ve chosen the three pictures what about cars themselves? If you had to choose one for the track, one for a long drive and a curve-ball car, what would they be?
The track car is easy. Nothing has lapped Silverstone with myself at the wheel faster than the McLaren 675LT. It’s a truly accomplished track car and besides the hypercar generation, nothing comes close.
A long drive means a Grand Tour to The Gentleman Racer, and nothing says Grand Tour like Aston Martin. The DB11 was given to me for a long weekend recently and I fell in love with the effortless nature of the Twin-Turbo V12 in their most dynamic model yet. I really didn’t want to like the DB11 as it was such a departure from heritage, but I fell deeply in love with the charismatic, tuneful V12 and plush surroundings.
A curve ball car would be one that’s on my bucket list to drive. The Jaguar XKSS - as driven by Steve McQueen would make the top of the list by a mile! Completely impractical, absurdly expensive and still the best looking car on the market.
