1. Ferrari F430 (3 points)
2. Bmw M5 (2 points)
3. Zonda F (1 point )

Ferrari simple yet stylish , Refine , Performance of a truely Fine tuned car , Great soundtrack ! Class of its own

Bmw M5 Work of art in terms of handling for a saloon , Powerful yet great as a cruiser , has a soundtrack close to a F430. Bad point which made me put it into 2nd place was the amount of electronics setting u have to set b4 u can get it going lol.

Zonda F Mr Pagani's opinion of the best Zonda he built , naming it the F , brutal power from the merc 7.3 lit v 12 engine. A nutter supercar. Downside... The looks hasnt changed much which made me put it in 3 place

1) BMW E60 M5

If you were doubting before, BMW truly has made the Ultimate Driving Machine. $80,000, 500bhp, 7sp SMG, 4 doors, and a BMW Interior. To me, this car is symbolic of BMW's rise to the best selling premium make.

2) Ferrari F430

If I could afford one, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one. Best Ferrari yet. They sound absolutely amazing. I'll take one in Ferrari red, with an F1 transmission (sry guys).

3) BMW E90 3-Series

What Dinan put two BMW's on his list? This was actually a tough one. The C6 Z06 is a very good car as well, as is the Porsche Cayman, but my unlimited love for the 3-series pulled through. Its the Automobile Magazine car of the year, and its everything you'd expect from the 3-series. Great handling, great feel, good power. It also beat out the more powerful IS350 and G35 in C&D.

Re: Car Comparisons' Car Of The Year 2005 - Nominations (read instructions first!)

1. Chevrolet Corvette Z06
2. Ford GT
3. Chevrolet Cobalt SS/SC

1+2 to me where tied. I like both cars equally. I had to go with the cobalt because when it come to 4cyl. vehicles i believe its top of its class.

Lamborghini Murcielago Convertible: 3pts

It's everything I love about exotics, all wrapped up in a gorgeous package, minus the roof.

Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe: 2pts

The latest generation of one of the most beastly, uncompromising streetcars ever. (Plus I got to drive the droptop version last spring, so I can really appreciate the kind of power this car has.)

Mazda MX-5: 1pt

Latest generation of the pure, affordable, reliable, convertible sportscar. (This one kinda ties with the Pontiac Solstice, but I use to drive a Miata, so they will forever hold a special place in my heart.)



Ecordeddie, I agree with you about the Chevy Colorado. I drive one now, and I love it. The five-cylinder is so much more than I expected, and the truck is way more refined and ergonomic than I figured it would be.

Re: Car Comparisons' Car Of The Year 2005 - Nominations (read instructions first!)

#1-Bentley Conti GT (Luxo-Rocket to the stars)
#2-BMW M5 (RS/AMG/SRT/V-Series eater!)
#3-Infiniti M45 (Most Improved Of Year)

Not yet available, but worthy of mention, the Cadillac STS-V. Glad that GM decided to hand-build major components; like intercooled 4.4 liter Roots-type supercharged V8s producing 469HP/439TQ. Good job, guys. Now take the 6L80 TAPShift rear-drive 6-speed from the Vette and STS-V and put it in a midsize (like a new Monte) with the 303HP 5.3 liter LS4 V8......and BANG!!!! YOUR SALES COME BACK!!!!!!

Re: Car Comparisons' Car Of The Year 2005 - Nominations (read instructions first!)

Regarding the user who suggested the Cobalt, the WRX or SRT-4 ACR are much more powerful, better overall choices, IMO.


My votes:
1 - Chevrolet Corvette Z06
2 - Mercedes CLS
3 - Mazda RX-8


The Vette is a great value, cannot be beaten by any street legal car (excl. cars like the Radical which i'd hardly consider a real car due to its impracticality) under, like 150K USD.

The CLS has a beautiful design and as Brabus showed, it can have power. They reached like 800 or 900 lbs of torque at 2400 RPMs. And about 750 hp.

I love the design of the RSX, the Rotary is a very intriguing design, the freestyle 4 doors are cool, and its handling and braking are amazing.

Evo easly takes first, the proformance to price ratio says it all
Z06 takes second, great proformance, awsome styling, runs neck and neck with cars that cost four times as much.
WRX STi Takes third, it is not quite on par with the EVO for balls to the wall proformance but very close, i would have put it second but I don't like the bubble look. I prefer the look of the late 90s models.
