Best sports car for a big man

Some sports cars are definitely made for the smaller guy. For example the Lotus 7 on which the Caterham 7 is based was built to accommodate its designer Colin Chapman who was only 5 foot 7. Over the years Caterham have made several adaptions to the basic designs that Lotus’s founder set out in 1957 so drivers up to 6 foot can now squeeze themselves in comfortably.

If you’re broad rather than tall, why not look at the American muscle car range? The pick of the bunch has to be the Ford Mustang. The 6th generation machine is even available with an economical engine as a 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine version can be bought rather than a gas guzzling V8.
