2021 marks 75 years since JCT600 opened for business. To celebrate this extra special year, we commissioned a survey to help paint a picture of British motoring over the last few decades, and to get a sense of the how the UK’s drivers relate to their cars today. One of the questions we asked people was “What, if anything, is your most vivid memory in a car?”

Aston Martins have long been serious objects of desire. Unrivalled British heritage mixed with exotic good looks, there’s a very good reason an Aston is high on the wish-list of many a petrolhead.
The Bentley Continental GT W12. Power for days, super luxurious interior, and beautiful to look at. Is it the ultimate grand tourer?
