Low crappy ranking by stodgy RR. They obviously put more emphasis on cost and luxury than performance. I'm not surprised. The exclusivity and performance and cost should have put the M6 in the top 5 for sure! These guys are smoking!

read that article on the plane the other day, I am not really surprised. There is a learning curve with the SMG, we all know that. Each driver only had a half hour behind the wheel of each car, so it really isnt a surprise that they did not get a good handle on the M6. One of the drivers was actually talking about how the car shifts too late for him, somebody really needed to tell them you need to shift yourself.

R8 is car of the year? Come on, yes the design is fresh but the thing costs 120k and will be out performed by a BMW M3 sporting DCT. Their list is completely superficial. A 599 coming in behind an R8 is insanity.
