Watch the 2012 Best Driver’s Car Video from Start to Winner
Our 2012 Best Driver’s Car competition is officially in the books. We’ll avoid spoiling the results for those who don’t yet know the winner but, for those who do, are you surprised? Neither were we.
This year’s event included nine spectacular cars from the affordable 2013 Subaru BRZ to the insane and extravagant Lamborghini Aventador. Senior features editor Jonny Lieberman and associate road test editor Carlos Lago serve as the hosts in the following video, which is filled with 36 minutes of wide-open-throttle powerslides and insightful commentary.
Find out which car Lieberman compares to paying for sex and which car Lagos says was right at home for the competition. In addition to canyon runs, there’s also plenty of footage from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, where the McLaren MP4-12C lapped the racetrack in just 1:34.5 seconds, the fastest time posted among all nine contenders. As always, racecar driver Randy Pobst drives all the cars around the track. Find out which one made him yell, “Sit down people! We just found the winner.”
The video is posted below. And click here for the full story, with plenty of pictures, graphs, and illustrations to study and drool over. Enjoy!
