After granting this prize to the fabulous Audi R8 in 2007 and the puppy-enthusiastic Vw's Golf GTI in 2006, we couldn't expect nothing more from this year's winner. These are all high performance sports cars, and this year's winner is no different. In fact you could say that they went for the no-brainer this time (again).
They say that even though the GTR weighs a ton, rides too hard, and sounds like your washing machine (which sometimes can be exciting) it still deserved to be named Automobile of the year. The supercar killer with a budget car price tag is renowned for its astonishing performance, and and high-intensity fun.
Automobile magazine say that 'for decades, previous versions of the GT-R were never exported to the United States. Now we know what we've been missing, and are we happy to be invited to the party'.
They also state that 'What we love about the GT-R is that it refuses to compromise. It is not comfortable, it is not trying to make friends and it is not trying to influence people. It exists for one reason only ' to go fast ' and it does.'
Blistering accelerations, incredible handling abilities, and a price tag for everyone's budget make this the ultimate supercar.
Simultaneously, the mighty GTR has also won the Most Advanced Technology Award . The Car of the Year Japan Executive Committee cited that Godzilla "as a supercar that delivers powerful performance and clean emission, featuring an advanced new body structure combining carbon, aluminum and steel, in addition to its impressive dual-clutch transmission and the world's first independent transaxle 4WD."
