In 2012, we saw several cars make a splash in the industry. But to be named my car of the year, the manufacturer has come out with a car that one would not think that manufacturer would make. Last year, my Car Of The Year went to the Ferrari FF. This is not your typical Ferrari. All Ferraris have been rear-wheel drive supercars and grand tourers until the FF, which is a four-wheel drive. Also, the FF is a hatchback, which is also a first for Ferrari. So what manufacturer took their game to the next level? What car stood out as the best of the best in 2012? The best car to come out in 2012 is...
On January 17, 2011, I released my first article, First Impression: Bugatti Veyron, on That Guy With The Glasses. After nine First Impressions reviews on That Guy With The Glasses, I created my own website through Blogger. On April 15, 2011, CarJunkie's Car Review was launched. To commemorate the launching of my own site, I created a new series of articles dedicated to classic cars. On April 15, 2011, I posted Classic Car: Ferrari F40 and Classic Car: Lamborghini Countach. In two years, I have done First Drive reviews, Top Gear US reviews, Top Gear UK reviews, Clunker reviews, Auto Countdowns, my own Car Awards, one Unlocking the Car article, and one Video Game Review. I even did a two part collaboration with the very talented Les for Manic Expression in which we both created a list of the top ten movie cars we would like to own and had the other member and his comments to each pick. To celebrate my two year anniversary and my 200th published article, I have to do something special. The car to be featured on this milestone article has to be special. It has to stand out in a stadium filled with some of the greatest cars of all time. In a car competition that includes the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and 300SL Roadster, a Duesenberg Model J, a Bugatti Veyron Supersport, a Bugatti Type 40A, a Ferrari 599 GTO, three different editions of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, a Jaguar XJ200, and many other rare and unique cars, this car was named Best in Show at the 2011 Houston Classy Chassis: Concours d'Elegance. This car was on display by the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California. The car to be featured for the milestone article is the French classic car Delage D8-120.
For my end of the year awards, I split up the high performing exotics into three categories: grand tourers, supercars, and hypercars. By my standards, a grand tourer is a high performing car that has the engine in the front and a trunk in the rear. In 2011, Ferrari released the FF and Aston Martin released the V12 Virage. Both are excellent examples of grand tourers. For 2012, the best grand tourer award goes to...
