    Surprised to see a diesel in the list. the 123d, is that the new twin turbo diesel?

    Does "autoexpress" determine the car of the year purely based on laptimes?!

    No, GT-R won the comparison without being the fastest on the circuit.

    Here is a DR article featuring the 123d sideways at the Ring LINK

    Re: "Car" magazine: Performance car of the year 20

    I was reading the latest issue of EVO this afternoon, and they had just tested the Caparo T1. On a track that Gumpert Apollo does 1:20, the T1 does it in 1:10 in the hands of someone driving the car for the first time and on road legal tyres!!!
