SEGA Racers Win Big: Coolest 16-Bit Cars On Jalopnik

This is nice.  Jalopnik (the car blog) ran a poll asking what are the coolest 16-bit cars of gaming.  Here's the games with the Top 10 cars according to the users:

10. Victory Run (Turbografx-16)
9. Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off-Road (Sega Genesis)
8. Marauder - Rock & Roll Racing (Sega Genesis)
7. Battle Cars (SNES)
6. Jaguar XJ220 (Sega Genesis)
5. Zero 4 Champ RR (Super Famicom)
4. Super Mario Kart (SNES)
3. Virtua Racing (Sega Genesis NOT 32X)
2. F-Zero (SNES)
1. OutRun (Sega Genesis)

Might I remind you that I contributed nothing to the votes.  Lessseeee here...you got Nintendo juggernauts Mario Kart & F-Zero.  And then here comes Outrun and Virtua Racing (the GENESIS version, remind you) which top 'em.  Well done, voters!!!  Cartoon go-karts and space racers may be interesting in a fantasy setting, but in the end, it's all about the work of modern artisans and technicians that hits the pavement...

Holy crap, look at the people at :36...it's Gumby!!

Not the flashiest version of OutRun...

These are on the measly Genesis so give them a break.  And there you have it, Sega racers score more points out there.
