    The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has emerged victorious in Autocar’s annual Britain’s Best Driver’s Car comparison for 2010. Smiley

    All seven of Autocar's judges placed Porsche's latest lightweight special at the top of their list, beating off stiff competition from nine other brilliant driver's cars launched during the past year, as well as last year's winner, the Lotus Evora.

    The three-day test took place at the recently re-opened Donington Park circuit in Leicestershire, as well as some of Britain’s best B-roads that surround Castle Donington.

    The 911 GT3 RS took victory ahead of the Noble M600 and, surprisingly, the Ferrari 458 Italia. The Ferrari may have been the quickest around Donington, but its quick steering and transition from understeer to oversteer wasn’t to all of the judges’ tastes.

    The Evora finished in fourth place ahead of the Renaultsport Megane 250 Cup, Lotus Elise, Mercedes SLS AMG, Audi RS5, Jaguar XJ Supersport, VW Scirocco and Alpina B5 S.

    Editor-at-large Steve Sutcliffe described the 911 GT3 RS as “very possibly the best road car any of us has ever driven around a circuit”.

    Chief road tester Matt Prior said of the Porsche: “It’s the most frenetic on-road experience here but, when you’re in the mood, absolutely one of the finest.”

    For the full story, see the 13 October edition of Autocar magazine, on sale today.

     Lotus Evora is a supercar ? Since when ?


    Re: Britain's Best Driver's Car 2010

    I've got an invite to test the Evora at the end of this month in Harrogate.  Anyone else get an invite.  Might go if someone on here is going!

    The Evora or the new Evora S ? Go testdrive one. I'd be interested in reading your impressions Smiley

    The Invite just says the New Evora 3.5 V6 which could be the S, but I'm sure they would have said so if it was.  I'll call them tomorrow and find out.

    Exactly - it's called name inflation - nowadays motoring journalists refer to any 2 seater as a supercar whether it's appropriate or not.

    Why thank you John.

    Oh and it's not an 'S' unfortunately.  They get their first 'S' in November and test drives will be after they have driven it in January apparently.
