Ferrari recives awards by AMS
The readers of the German car magazine "Auto Motor und Sport" - the most renowned magazine in Germany, which has eleven international editions and seven collaboration agreements with as many magazines - such as Autocar (UK) and Quattroruote (Italy) - confirmed the success of two vehicles from Ferrari in the traditional "Best Cars" survey, where the readers are voting for their preferred cars in 20 different categories. This year the awards are given for the 31st time.
More than 100,000 readers voted and in the end it was the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, which, with 11,2% of the votes in its category "Imported Sports Cars", won the award.
The 12 cylinder from Maranello is the best performing Granturismo car that has ever been built by the manufacturer with the Prancing Horse - an synthesis of technological innovation and refined design in a Coupé with a middle-front engine, which has been presented at the Car Show in Paris last year. The 599 GTB Fiorano follows the Ferrari F430, winner of this category in the year 2005.
Thus the 599 GTB Fiorano continues to collect national and international awards after the two from important British magazines: Evo ("2006 Evo Car of the Year") and Top Gear ("2006 Top Gear Supercar of the Year"). The 599 GTB Fiorano also won in the category "Spotscars" in the survey "The car I prefer" 2007 by the Italian magazine Quattroruote.
Meanwhile the F430 Spider defended its title it gained last year in the category "Imported Convertibles" with 11.4% of the votes. This 8 cylinder with its middle engine, designed by Pininfarina, lets their owners enjoy driving an open car with the temperament of a sports car from Maranello. Before the F430 Spider this category has been won by the 360 Modena Spider. In the Chinese edition of "Auto, Motor und Sport" the F430 Berlinetta won in the category "Sports Cars" for the second year in a row.
