In celebrating our 20th anniversary of eCoty, we also look at our past heroes, and talk to the people who defined the genre including John Barker, Jethro Bovingdon, Henry Catchpole and Harry Metcalfe.

But of course, 20 years of eCoty means that there are 20 years worth of magnificent performance cars to experience, and while some have become icons in their own right, others now represent a more accessible motoring nirvana. We bring these three past used eCoty heroes together to see how they stack up against each other, and the modern performance cars from eCoty 2018.
