One of the most exciting categories, we felt like a mother forced to pick her favourite child even though we loved them all equally. Some more equal than most. Alas, we got to the task of weeding out our favourites.
Much to our surprise, the BMW M6 and the A 45 AMG pulled ahead of the pack within three weeks of voting. It was truly a David and Goliath moment as the A 45 AMG claimed more votes than the RS4 and S6 combined!
In the end, with the combined weightage from our Editorial team, the A 45 AMG pulled ahead to come out tops for our High Performance Car of the year. We were impressed with how much power AMG managed to squeeze out of the little 2.0 litre four cylinder engine while still remaining reliable despite our merciless flogging during our review. A true giant slayer in our eyes.
