  1. What do you think is the most legendary car of all time?

  2. Nobel also used the heater dials and facia for the blue thru red temp control from a modeo

  3. What about cars with parent brands? Like Maserati. Do they count?

  4. after the M12 Noble wanted to make the M15 which never happened so technically the M600 did not come after the M12

  5. Also the DB7 inside door handles were from a Miata.


  7. Its neither 'Porsch' or 'Porsch-AH", its Porsche, with a german 'E' which is not pronounced like an 'A'

  8. On first position is vw golf 2

  9. F40 IS THE legendary CAR all OF the TIME

  10. bro nissan 300zx is worth like 250,000 dhs so not cheap mat 5:29

  11. Nobody:I only date bad boys.
    Matt:I say Porsche and not porshaa.

  12. I was thinking atleast Ford will not borrow anything as everyone are borrowing from them
    But then comes the💥

  13. 1:05 loosely based? The McLaren's S70/2 is about as loosely based on the BMW S70 as the new Supra is loosely based on a Z4…

  14. carwow is mostly going through the visible parts. Wait til you see all the components that go into the cars. Even the most bespoke cars, like the Bugattis, Paganis, and Koenigseggs are chalk full to the brim with pieces from all over the car world. Of course these are all the cheap, insignificant parts like trunk latches, hydraulic struts, and windshield wipers etc – stuff you really don't stand to gain much from improving yourself. Well, what they do is that they strip off the plastics panels and make their own carbon fiber panels, to cover up the fact that it may say 'Volvo' or 'Volkswagen' on it…

  15. Hi Matt. Really great video. One correction though……Yamaha built the 4.4L V8 for Volvo, they didn't steal the block, they designed it from the ground up.

  16. What's the deal with those Citroen CX mirrors ?

  17. …this "habit" got more to do with regulations than anything: for every new part you need a technically certification, so to make the whole process faster you "borrow" some from the other car-makers…( and Yes we hate it!

  18. So when you're in an V12 Aston and Mondeo V6 pulls up next to you, you can say "i've got 2 of those.."

  19. People need to stop ripping on the delorean, its not as terrible as everything claims.

  20. matey, you forgot some major ones: Spyker C8, Saleen S7, Zonda S, Diablo, all have a tractor's rear lights. Innit?

  21. This is interesting never heard of some of these cars

  22. Click bait – "stolen parts"

  23. How come every idiot out there continues to say that the engine in the McLaren F1 is loosely based on the 850CSI engine.. well its not, there is absalutely not a single part in common. The S70/2 motor is literally two S50B30 from the Euro E36 M3. That motor is from the M50/S50 series but the engine ini the 850 is a M20/M30 series motor. Even the Rolls Royce Vanos system the McLaren on. Bank 1 is identical. The ITB’s are almost if not the same on bank 1 (as bank 2 is mirrored)

  24. In the early… naughties? 3:55

  25. Out of this video, I conclude the Citroën's CX's mirrors were the best ever produced by any manufacturer ever, at least until 1995 that is 😀

  26. This video inspired by Yuwan Thayakaran

  27. People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in Crypto
