evo Car Of The Year 

The hotly-anticipated evo Car Of The Year (eCOTY) issue is here. The Ferrari 488 Pista, McLaren 600LT and Porsche 911 GT2 RS slug it out for the top honour of being the ultimate eCOTY while middle weight contenders like the Alpine A110, BMW M2 Competition and Renault Mégane R.S. represent the best of the real-world options. Those looking for lightweight thrills or the best entry performance car will also look forward to the duel between the Ford Fiesta ST and Volkswagen Up! GTI.
