Hosted by Ice Cube, the night culminated with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 driving off with the night’s biggest honor of "Car of the Year." The Corvette also cruised away with "Best Sports Car" and "Deal of the Year."

Ice Cube did double-duty as he not only hosted, but for the first time ever, performed "Chrome and Paint" and "Why We Thugs?" live to the packed crowd at the Fremont Experience. Academy Awards winners Three 6 Mafia performed "It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp" for the first time live since
winning their prestigious award at the Oscars a few weeks back. One of music’s hottest groups, rock royalty super-group Camp Freddy performed Cheap Trick’s "Surrender."
 
Former Chrysler Chairman and CEO Lee Iacocca received the "Icon Award" honoring a living individual whose remarkable contribution in the automotive arena has become legendary the world over. Kiefer Sutherland of Fox’s mega-hit series, 24, presented the award to Iacocca.
