Quick update, so far chart looking like this. Cars with a single vote I’ve not included - but am tracking so other cars may still turn up.

Interesting to see none of the new BMW’s make it to the list.

FYI - Position 1, gets 5 points decreasing by 1 for each position down to 1.
My vote hasn’t been included, and one other person as it wasn’t listed in order.

507 - 25 (5 of which was Roadster specific) (6 votes)
Z8 - 24 (7 votes)
M1 - 22 (6 votes)
2002 ti - 19 (5 votes)
E9 CSL - 15 (4 votes)
M3 E46 CSL - 14 (6 votes)
M635i - 11 (3 votes)
M3 GTR - 9 (2 votes)
Z4 M coupe - 8 (3 votes)
Z3 M coupe - 5 (2 votes)
M5 E60 V10 - 4 (2 votes)
M5 E39 - 3 (2 votes)

I have already listed my top 5, but the one car (money no object) I would love to own is this very unique 328.

Why does that one have green grilles?

The one at the BMW Munich Museum has silver ones.

Besides if we’re talking 30/40s cars then I’d much prefer this one!
