I always used to enjoy the Top Gear cool wall as it was a bit of fun I could relate to. I wondered it it was worth a moment having one here for humour as long as we don't fall into the trap of assuming our opinion is in fact right. Obviously only Jeremy knows what is really right.

How about selecting 7 cars and ordering them from cool to uncool given some of the other things we have seen recently in other threads.

Morgan Plus Six (deliberately to provoke the "it's overpowered and will kill us all" moment)
Tesla Model Y (I added SUV to make it harder than just choosing a 3)
Golf GTi (great but a bit too common??)
Land Rover Velar D180 (multi-purpose and the brand)
Kia e-Niro (great package but missing it's soul)
Ford Focus ST (invisible, cheap, fun to drive)
AMG GLC63 Coupe (possibly with a Prada handbag in the passenger seat)

1 is the most cool
7 is the least cool

Where do you stand and possibly any notes ?

No wrongs and as much humour as we can derive from it?


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

OK starting with 1 and going up. Ford Focus, AMG, Golf, Morgan, Kia, Velar, Tesla ( because its an SUV)

I'd just like to add if I may, in addition to the cool wall, the sub zero wall. grin2

The Focus ST is way too common and predictable to ever be cool.

It may be a great car, but it isn't cool

And I love Golfs but they are not cool.

When you see a cool car on the road, it should make you go WOW!

Morgan has that effect on many people but doesn't the rule state if you have one it can't be cool?

So think of the rare occasion when you really do think WOW!

It isn't any SUV, or Tesla, or AMG, sorry guys.

I need to think this through.

1 has to be Morgan need I say more
2 AMG I know not to everyone's taste.
3 Golf GTi. Classic and untouched by time.
4 Tesla Model Y Overpriced but technically brilliant
5 Ford Focus ST Great to drive and reasonably priced per BHP
6 Land Rover Velar. Good looking but unreliable and poor dealers in general
7 Kia E-Niro I want to like but plain boring

I know these opinions don't make cool or not but in my mind a cool car has to be more than just good looks.

The cool wall equates to a golf club car park
1. Plus six (the clubs arrived in your wife’s car)
2 velar (by virtue of the fact that it’s an unnecessary model but looks great)
3 AMG (with scratches on the boot lip from forcing your golf trolley in)
4. Anything else

The game of golf defies understanding.

But anyway, seeing a Max on the road would be a WOW event.


I can't think of any other modern cars which would WOW me.

I saw a "Blower Bentley" on the A5 one day. That was a big WOW!

When Malcolm joined us in his Max for our TM Haynes/Yeovilton meet last autumn it certainly was a WOW car in glorious silver, and he drove it back in the snow and rain, a real trooper thumbs he reported back that it was almost leakproof grin2

I can't remember the last time I saw anything on the road that has imbued a similar feeling for years.
