We are very pleased to announce the winners of our annual supercar and tuning awards! Out of ten nominees chosen by our editorial team our visitors chose their Supercar and Tuning Car of the Year 2010. The winner of the award for Tuner of the Year 2010 was one of five nominated tuners.
GTspirit Supercar of the Year 2010: Ferrari 458 Italia
The Ferrari 458 Italia certainly made the headlines more than once in 2010. The Ferari F430 successor set the new benchmark for supercars in this segment, but wasn’t free of controversy caused by its spotanious fires. The 4.5 liter V8 in the Ferrari 458 Italia delivers 570hp and it has a top speed of 325km/h.
GTspirit Tuner of the Year 2010: Mansory
Mansory has gained reputation as an exclusive tuner of super- and hypercars. Their reputation and eye-catching creations released in 2010 is rewarded with both recognition from our editorial staff and our visitors and ultimately earned Mansory the title for GTspirit Tuner of the Year 2010.
GTspirit Tuning Car of the Year 2010: PPI Razor GTR-10
PPI focussed on weight reduction with their PPI Razor GTR-10. The result is a naturally-aspirated V10 engine with 601hp and a car that is 250kg lighter than a standard R8 V10, good for 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 335km/h. The PPI Razor GTR-10 made public appearances at Top Marques Monaco and the Gumball 3000 in 2010, without a doubt this has helped them to secure the award for Tuning Car of the Year 2010.

I have to agree. I’m really shocked by the outcome. The 458 set the credibility of Ferrari back to the 80s. Its a thorough embarrassment. The only reason it sells is because the number of new-money drivers anxious to impress had increased ten-fold.
As for the fans, I think younger people don’t know what it was like to see the ridiculously fickle nature of sports cars in the 80s and they have far too much trust in manufacturers. This quality breakdown is a result of Ferrari wanting to quickly capitalize on the new money crowd and it sacrificed safety to meet that demand.
The GTR-10 is okay, but in a market saturated by over tuned, overly styled R8s it only stands out as the most vulgar, but certainly not the best built, most reliable or more sophisticated. Its not a big bicep. Its a bicep on steroids….with tribal tattoos added. lol I think people are really harping on the 500lb weight reduction they managed, but that handling set-up would get the average owner killed. Besides, there were far more interesting cars out this year.
That’s my nickel and a dime.
Oh – and Mansory deserved a LIFETIME OVERKILL award. Make it happen GTSpirit! lol
HA! I agree Mansory are CAR SERIAL KILLERS!
