Our European Cars of the Year Candidate
We have finally come to choose our final candidate for our Performance Car of the Year award (2014). I know we are a little late to the party, but good things take time.
This time we are choosing our European Performance Car of the Year (2014). The winner of this category will go head to head with the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Nissan GT-R.
Without further delay below are the candidates (we decided to leave off the ultra high performance hybrids for this year, but will likely include them next year).
Porsche 911 GT3
The newest 911 GT3 is possibly the best ever. Sure purists lament the fact that only the PDK dual clutch transmission is available, but from a performance stand point it is just about perfect.
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
Mercedes is taking aim at the Porsche 911 with the AMG GT and they have made a powerful and stunning looking car. It is the perfect option for someone looking for a German performance car that just isn’t a Porsche.
Ferrari 458 Speciale
The Ferrari 458 Speciale is just an incredible machine. The standard 458 is very good, but the Speciale takes it to the razors edge. It is a fast beautiful machine that must be respected or it will bite you.
The McLaren 650S is fast a beautiful. The quality of the craftsmanship on the car is top notch. Those who purchase one will often get people thinking that it is a P1 because of the similar front end.
The Lamborghini Huracan is the car that replaced the Gallardo. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill, but fortunately the Huracan fills the company’s V10 void nicely.
The BMW i8 is a performance hybrid that is affordable when compared to cars like the Ferrari LaFerrari. Performance levels are close to the 911 Carrera and it has the looks of a concept car.
So, there you have the competitors, now help us name our European Performance Car of the Year by letting us know your favorite in the comments.
