- Was there an Aston?


Not bad. Thanks for sharing.

I agree, with 2 out of the 3 choices. I'm lucky enough to have the 1m and am picking up my 4.0 RS soon. I looked into the MP4-12C but just did not get excited by all that new technology. I might have been more serious if I got to drive it but I did not.

So in eCOTY, the 1M beats it's arch nemesis the Cayman R.

I would call that a result.

Impressive. That's a strong field. I'm almost a bit surprised that it beat out the M5, Cayman R, Aventador and Ferrari FF. Those are some very solid cars for a parts bin special to take down.

How can MP4 take the 2nd place?? I thought it is just a computer-driven car instead of a fun-to-drive car like 458 or... BMW!
