I dissagree with technology going to germany. Engineering/Performance to Germany, technology etc. goes to Japan. 2 good examples Lexus LS430 and Infiniti Q45. On the other hand the MB CL600, its tight but I think I would give it to Japan.

Cool

I donīt know, thatīs a tough one. I like japanesse best cause:
1) Engineering
2) More accesible than german cars
3) Reliability certainly
4) Donīt remeber what else

I like americans too; like Ford. Italian styling. Korean features for the buck. Sweedish safety (Volvo)

So....
I like īem all!

Just a joke

My comment about the Yugo was just a joke. I might be crazy but I'm not THAT crazy!

Italy, hands down.
No one builds a car with more passion then the Italians.....
THIS is what the Japenese lack, thats why i hate the LS, and SC's and even the germans (second place winners) lack this......they're amazing engineers but they're cars a generally "cold" i mean look at the new 7 series interior....
When the italians build a car, its more a piece of art, and to me it shows.
Examples the 550 and 360....

1. Germany ( nice packaging )
2. Italy ( design goes over functionality )
3. Japan ( knocking on the door...... )

German cars are best engineered:
Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, VW. Nuff said.
Italians have most driver appeal IMO. Ferrari, Alfa, Lancia...
Japanese cars, no matter how capable, have no character whatsoever. Thats what comes of stealing designs and imitating the Europeans

cheers

I used to live in germany..although price is to pay. german cars conquer everything on the road, from engineering, luxury, quality, power, styling, fuckin awesome..

You said it. although they are criticised for one thing, along with the Japs. however capable their cars are they dont have enough character which to some extent is true. the 911 is losing some its 911-ness and 3-series BMW's are getting less fun. still, theyre the best cars in the world IMO.

cheers,
jay

ITALY all the way man!!

and not just coz I'm italian...:hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

Sure, Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Lancias or Alfas aren't the fastest, nor the best handling cars available 2day, nor necessarily the best built either, but, IMHO,
WHO CARES?? LOL

I think it's a question of tradition that's behind those badges: Italian manufacturers have always been on the fore of motoring competition throughout the century; think of the Lancia Deltas that ruled the world of rallies for 5 seasons ina row not that long ago, of the F1 Alfas with their tiny 1.6L turbocharged engines pushingout something like 800hp, not to mention the F2002 and the previous F1 cars that are showing the world what Italian technology is capable of....hahahaha11

Talking about Italy you guys think about their supercars. But the question was not only about that cathegory. Remember that Italians also manufacture the lame Fiats, ugly Lancias and nice looking but really fucked up manufactured Alfas.
My pick goes to Germany for the best cars ever but sometims with lack of reliability (BMW's) and Japan for the best reliability but lack in personality.
