Endangered Species: Britain’s rarest cars
Lengthy data analysis has revealed plenty of cars in Britain living on borrowed time. Here are some of our favourites...
Posted: 26 May 2011
Ever wondered what our country’s rarest cars are? Last Tuesday we did, and being in our usual industrious mood we contacted car-fact gatekeepers, the Society of Motoring Manufacturers and Traders.
They sent over immense screeds of data which revealed, after a bit of maths, how many cars of
every model and type are taxed, MoT’d and driving around the country. There may
be more out there festering in barns or midway through a restoration, but in
terms of road legal vehicles, this list is gospel.
So we've picked out some of our highlights, from just twenty running models left, to just one. Click forth to reveal some of the rarest cars in Britain right now...
