The Best cars of this year was grim in places. But if there’s one bright spot that’s making everyone’s life much better. it’s the sheer number of gas-guzzling four-wheeled wonders that’ve taken to the road in the last twelve months. 2016’s been a vintage year cars-one that’ll perhaps go down in history as a watershed year for both stories classics and built for speed supercars.

Bentley built a Mulsanne that’s impossibly nimble for its 2.7 tons, while Jaguar took us back to the halcyon days of British classics with its Xkss. Bugatti, Mazda, Mclaren, Aston Martin and more turned us with the goods to match up. And if Lamborghini’s latest offering is any market, 2017’s only going to be better.

Here are the Best cars of 2016

Aston Martin DB4 GTNew car manufacturers reissuing classics is very much a thing this year, and the announcement that Aston was going to recreate the DB4 gave us one of our favorites. We’ve not seen any finished cars yet, But that’s the thing about this reprints- we’ve already seen it, lusted after it and parked it in our dream garage. It’ll cost you north of £1m and you can’t drive it on the road, but if you want to give a slice of your lottery windfall an exceptionally pleasing shape, this is surely the way forward.

Bentley Mulsanne Speed

Bentley wasn’t mucking around when it built the speed there’s 530bhp and 811lb ft of torque tucked away in its 6.75 liter v8. which gets this 5.5-metre, 2.7-tonne car from 0-60mph in 48 secs and on to 190mph. yet none of the old world soft-touch Luxury’s compromised. the woods’s still stored in a humidor for a fortnight before it’s applied to the interior, the leather comes from a Scandinavian supplier that refuses to pen its cattle with barbed wire so the hide’s not nicked and it’s deathly quiet Truly a remarkable thing.

BMW 7 Series

This year the Bavarians created the ultimate surface to surface command Centre for HNIs in a hurry. The M760LI has cameras that scan the road ahead and precondition the suspension settings so your driver can let the V12 rip. And it rips- the four-wheel drive model gets to 62mp in 3.9 seconds the same as an Aston Martin vanquish and on to a tethered 155 mph.

Bugatti Chiron

When the Bugatti Veyron landed in 2005 the automotive world shifted on its axis every speed, power and price record was obliterated and the benchmark was kicked up higher than nearly everyone expected. This year came its successor. The album. We’ve not driven it yet but it’s a meeting point for some huge numbers. The engine produces 1479bhp and 1180lb ft, it gets to 62mph in less than 2.5 seconds and it’ll hit 261mph. yours for £1.9m.

Ferrari J50

Wealthy people buy Ferraris. They’re expensive cars. But really wealthy people want something no-one else has, which is why even a regular Ferrari sometimes just isn’t enough. The company will happily entertain designing a one-off car for its most committed clients, but has lately been mining a rich seam in what it calls its “limited series” cars. This is one of them and it’s been built to commemorate 50 years of selling cars in Japan. It’s based on the 488 spider but that bodywork…You want one.

Ford Mustang Ecoboost

The motoring press exalted the virtues of the first Ford Mustang that’s ever been officially imported to the Uk in its 52-years lifespan. But they got it a bit wrong the exalted V8 model makes a nice noise but the lighter 2.3-litre Ecoboost gives the ‘Stang the sort of balance we rarely see from our American Cousins.

Jaguar XKSS

THE JAGUAR XKSS

The thirst for storied British classics cars among high net worth individuals is intense to the extent that a Le Mans-winning Jaguar D-type sold for $20m-plus at pebble beach last August. So Jaguar thought it would help out those with more constrained means and offer a brand new classic Xkss for a mere £1m. It’s possibly the most beautiful car- and, indeed, thing ever built, and now the poorer end of the super-rich can join in the fun.

Mazda MX-5

Warning This car may be ADDICTIVE: Don’t dismiss this as a hairdresser’s car because, for one, it’s dreadful at keeping your hair in shape if you’re after low-calorie high fiber motoring fun, the little roadster is absolutely the way forward and, indeed sideways, because it’s rear-wheel drive. It’s 50 percent as fun as a lunatic track thing like a Caterham or Ariel, but with 100 per cent of the comfort and costs 70 per cent less.

McLaren 540C

Luxury family SUV will easily set you back £100,000 these days, so a fully-fledged carbon chassis McLaren for £120k seems like an absolute bargain. The 540C doesn’t let itself down in the performance stakes, either-the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 makes 533bhp gets it from 0-62mph in 305 seconds and on to 199mph, so even the really expensive stuff won’t embarrass you when you’re rumbling through Monaco.

Maserati Levante

Four words; the seats are silk. we could leave it there, but the latest Mas has a lot more going for it than just haberdashery. It gets a Ferrari-developed, twin-twin turbo V6 engine shackled to a four-wheel drive system, bringing some unexpected utility to Italy’s most individual and charismatic marque.
