So, what’s this all about?
Over the last few months, Hitachi Personal Finance has been on a bit of a mission. The personal loan provider came up with a shortlist of the most lust-worthy cars of the last few decades and asked you, the public, to choose your favourite.
This was the search for the Car That Got Away, those vehicular pin-ups that adorned your bedroom wall but which, for reasons of money, practicality and youth, were destined to remain just out of reach. Hitachi has treated you to hot hatches, rally superstars and a voluptuous Bauhaus coupé named after a motorbike – but now, with the votes tallied, it’s time to pick a winner.
