Held at the swanky Ritz-Carlton, JBR, our sixth awards night attracted all of the major players from the automotive industry once again. The coveted Car of the Year trophy went to the stunning BMW i8, pushing many great contenders behind in the long, comprehensive selection process.
The other cars awarded that night included the BMW M3, Audi A3, Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé, the C-Class, Renault Captur, and the Ferrari California T. Quite an eclectic mix that, you’d agree. But that’s what makes wheels Car of the Year awards interesting.
