2013 evo Car of the Year

2013 has been one hell of a year for performance cars; one of the best in recent memory, in fact. Think Porsche 911 GT3, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series…

It’s test line-ups like that that make evo’s journalists the envy of car enthusiasts everywhere. Until, that is, they have to pick a winner.

“…there are a lot of furrowed brows as people write their final lists. One by one, the pieces of paper are handed to Nick with the solemnity of a papal ballot.”

Henry Catchpole, evo Australia 006

Spanning 36 pages of the December issue of evo Australia, the eCOTY feature sees a dream garage of eleven of 2013’s best cars pushed to their limits in the quest for the coveted title. Sponsored by our partners at Michelin tyres, the epic test was staged across two rounds, with the eight finalists going head-to-head on France’s famous Route Napoleon.

The editorial team once again excelled, producing dynamic, engaging copy, stunning photography and thrilling video (see below) for distribution across evo’s print, web and mobile platforms.

So, which car claimed the eCOTY crown? To find out just pick up a copy of the December issue from your local newsagent, Coles or Coles Express, or download the interactive version on your iPad (just search “evo Australia” in the AppStore).
