Corvette ZR1 best and sexiest car in Detroit
There is no wonder why the Corvette ZR1 was chosen the best at Detroit Auto Show. It is indeed a very good and anticipated car, but on the other hand it didn’t had a real competition in there. According to Detroit News, the ZR1 was the best and the sexiest car in the Show. Results were announced at the Detroit Economic Club’s North American International Auto Show 2008 luncheon at Cobo Center.
"We recruited a panel of 100 readers to inspect the powertrains, kick the tires and check the many shades of green in a contest to identify the best of show," said Jon Wolman, editor and publisher of The Detroit News. "They were dazzled by much of what they saw and we’re glad to present these awards in honor of the vehicles that stood out for their excellence."
While most of the awards handed out at the auto show are voted on by journalists or industry professionals, the Readers’ Choice Awards are intended to gauge the sentiments of consumers.
This year’s winners, by category, were:
- Best of Show: Corvette ZR1
- Best Future Fantasy: Mazda Taiki
- Best Family Hauler: Chrysler Town and Country
- Best Curves: Lincoln MKS
- Plushest Interior: Maybach Landaulet
- Most Innovative: Ford F-150
- Sexiest Vehicle: Corvette ZR1
