2005 C&D 10 Best Cars


http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp?se...article_id=8914
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Best Sports Sedan = Acura TSX

Best Luxury Sedan = Acura RL

Best Luxury Sports = BMW 3-Series/M3

Best Performance Car = Chevrolet Corvette

Best Full-Size Sedan = Chrysler 300C/300C Hemi

Best Wagon = Dodge Magnum

Best Muscle Car = Ford Mustang GT

Best Family Sedan = Honda Accord

Best Sports Coupe = Mazda RX-8

Best Luxury Sports Car = Mercedes-Benz SLK350


Beautiful. Only thing I don't agree with is the RX-8.

Because it's probably in the "luxury sports sedan" category, which the 3 Series/M3 won, even though it's a coupe.

They probably also ruled out cars that are 'too expensive'. The M3 is the most expensive car on there, right? (Well, I dunno about the Mercedes). Otherwise the Enzo would have won best performance

I think they were going for best bang for the buck. In that case the Corvette wins hands down. Besides, if it was best performance overall the Enzo still wouldn't come in first... though it's fast and beautiful .. there are faster cars.

NM the RX8 has 4 doors and only had 197HP at 7200RPM and 164 pounds of torque at 5000RPM. that car is a piece of shit
