These days it is fashionable to follow America in actions, deeds and words. So it is not amiss to note that one of America’s best motoring journals, Road & Track, agrees with Motor Sport over certain car likes and dislikes. For instance, it rates the 6.3-litre Mercedes-Benz 300SEL as “best sedan in the World”, thinks the B.M.W. 2002 the best value for money, in the GT field, of cars it tested in 1968 (adding “That’s not a GT car! Maybe not by definition, but it sure does everything a GT ought to do . . . and better than most GTs even pretend to.”), and dislikes the Porsche Sportomatic transmission. So there!
