I wish there was a like function for this post, lol.
Britain has never been known for real great sports cars sadly. They have some cool cars, but never reliable, never real fast, and not great handling. Just good looking (if you are 5' 0").
Germans have some decent cars if you don't mind tossing reliability out the window. Japanese still can't design great looking cars.
American cars of the 80s-early 2000s were fairly unimpressive as far as the 4 bangers and interiors. Nothing beats a good American V8 though. Mercedes themselves came over to ask why the hell Chevy was able to get such good mileage, so much power, and such great reliability out of the ancient overhead valve LS series of engines. Obviously Chevy hasn't given their secret out, because there still hasn't been a V8 (or any other engine) to compare to the LS series.
