And your COTY is… the Morgan 3 Wheeler. Eh?
It obliterated all before it, basically. And so despite the more obvious allure (or so you’d think) of machines such as the Lamborghini Aventador, BMW M5 and McLaren MP4-12C, your very own car of the year for 2011 is – tadaa – the Morgan 3 Wheeler.

Thank you for voting, and thank you for coming up with such a weird and wonderful range of cars. I’m not entirely sure what the Morgan vote says about the typical contributor to this site, other than that you are clearly not just interested in the mainstream. Which, all things considered, is deeply refreshing.

The top seven in order were:
Morgan 3 wheeler 10 votes
Lamborghini Aventador 5 votes
BMW 1-series M Coupe 4 votes
Ginetta G40 R 4 votes
BMW M5 4 votes
VW Up 2 votes
McLaren MP4-12C 2 votes

Cars that got just the one vote were:
Ginetta G60
Citroen DS5
New BMW 3-Series (not on sale in UK but on sale in Europe so just about counts)
Mercedes-Benz SLS
Range Rover Evoque
Mercedes-Benz C63 Black Series
Ferrari 458 Spider
Citroen DS4
BAC Mono
Nissan GTR 2012
Ford Focus
Jaguar XFR

The significant others (ie cars that were voted for but which for various reasons don’t count unfortunately) were:
Toyota GT 86 / Subaru BRZ 6 votes
Alfa 4C 2
Rolls Royce Phantom 102EX
Ferrari F40
Lancia Thema
Honda Mugen CRZ

And a special award goes jointly to Rovamota and BriMarsh – both of whom felt the need to comment, but neither of whom chose to vote.

So until this time next year…
