"The greatest car vote segment was cut out of all re-airings and streaming versions of the show, mainly due to the episodes frequently being subject to edits which removed significant amounts of footage for time-saving (eg. advert breaks) or copyright-related reasons. It was aired only once in 2003, and most of the recordings of it were lost but it's back now, and here it is. E7&8 in this video still uses old footage."

 



McLaren F1 (Murray Walker)
Jaguar E-Type (Chris Barrie)
Ford Mustang (Jeremy Clarkson)
London Taxi (A.A. Gill)
Land Rover (Richard Hammond)
Fiat 500 (Nick Mason)
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud (Stuart Hall)
Citroen DS (James May)
Audi Quattro (Graeme Le Saux)

More likely cut because of Stuart Hall?

Aside from the rather nasty 'personality' as mentioned above, the truth is that it's just a dull segment that doesn't age well. Hardly surprising it was dropped when trying to fit the show into a 40-45mins slot.
