A few months ago I was quite certain that the award should go to the Dodge Demon for its ridiculous performance and affordability, but then the Mclaren 720S just blew me away. It’s hard to believe that a car that costs more than 280,000 dollars would have such a high value for money ratio. The 650S was already a tough competitor to the best in its class and the 720S had managed to beat a modified version of it by a respectable margin:
It reminds me of the performance gap between the Ferrari F430 and the 458 Italia a few years ago:
The 720S raised the bar to a nearly hypercar level, I think that’s an award-worthy achievement.
If the nominee includes a McLaren 720, tw V-12 Ferraris, and a Porsche GT3, I doubt if putting in a Honda Civic would make any sense.
1. McLaren 720S!
