Here’s the next batch of Car of the Year nominees. Executive Car of the Year and Supercar of the Year are up.
Executive Car of the Year
These are the kind of cars businessmen ride to work. Luxurious, spacious and full of gadgets.
Audi A8: Alex isn’t a fan of the looks, but we both agree that it’s quite a good car on the inside.
BMW 7 Series: None of us are fans of the looks, but like the A8, it’s what’s on the inside that scores it a place here.
Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S: This car wouldn’t be eligible if it weren’t for a recent facelift, so it’s a damn good job that facelift was done. This car has looks, unlike the others, and is very sporty and comfortable all at the same time.
Alfa Romeo 159: This car, like the Quattroporte, is only here thanks to a recent update. It looks fantastic, but it’s up against quite a tough bunch of cars. We’ll see later how it fairs.
Supercar of the Year
This is one of the biggies. It’s not THE Car of the Year, but it’s about as close as it gets in our opinion. Quite a heck of a lot of nominees as well.
Ferrari 458 Italia: A very good-looking Ferrari, something we haven’t had in a while. It also promises to be good fun.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni: A rear-drive, manual Lambo. Need I say more?
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Gullwing doors are awesome. Especially when put on a car with a massive V8. The interior looks good as well.
Audi R8 V10: The good-looking R8, but with more power.
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: One of the fastest supercars around the Nurburgring at quite a low price.
Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR: Same reason as the Corvette. This is even faster around the ‘Ring, and still relatively cheap.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce: I was quite doubtful of this car at first, as I never thought a Murcielago could look good with a wing, but this did. You also get more power and less weight. Definitely deserves a spot here.
Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series: Powaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar. Enough said.
Pagani Zonda Cinque: Italian madness and performance at its finest.
So there you go. Next time, we’ll be releasing the nominees for the biggest award of them all: The Car of the Year. Stay tuned.
Update: Due to our sheer stupidity, we completely forgot to add the Pagani Zonda Cinque to our nominees for Supercar of the Year. It’s been added now, sorry about that.
