WINNERS: CAR OF THE YEAR 2014

High Performance Car of the Year 2014 Singapore: Jaguar F-Type 5.0

Editor's choice: Jaguar F-type     Voter's choice: Jaguar F-type

If looks could kill, we would all be ghost writers after seeing the Jaguar F-type Coupe. Without a shadow of doubt, the feline is the most beautiful car we've seen this year and quite honestly we couldn't quite decide which is more striking, the coupe or the roadster. In a perfect world, we would have both.

While the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG isn't behind in the looks department it however doesn't match the Jaguar in its volume and vocal range. With an exhaust note that will hold its own against nominees from our supercar category, the Editorial team is unanimous in its fondness for this kitty. Good looks matched with a screaming V8 and potent handling always rules the day in the Oneshift office. Yes, we hear you. The Audi RS6 has a V8 under the bonnet too but we found it to be more hammer than scalpel in the handling department.
