Car of the year

The SL55 made the Robb Report's car of the year, followed by

2. Range Rover
3. Bentley Arnage T
4. Ferrari 575M Maranello
5. MB E500
6. Jag XKR
7. Viper SRT-10 (tie for 6th actually)
8. Mini Cooper S (I don't get it either)
9. Hummer H2

Last year the SL500 made the top spot.

Took the words right out of my mouth. LaBron James has one. You'll be able to jump higher if you drive one.

And a Range Rover over the Maranello. Wow. Must be one heckuva car.

Just placed my order for a MINI Cooper "S". Will have the car in 6 months! Actually, you have to drive it to believe it....simply fantastic! I'm trading the Mazda Tribute for the tired of the SUV driving and do not need to drive around a lot of useless space. Motor On!
