The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been awarded Autocar magazines Best Drivers Car Award for 2010. Chas Hallett, editor of Autocar, said “the Porsche 911 GT3 RS was a clear winner; each of our seven judges placed the car at the top of their list. On the day of our road and track testing at Donington, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS’ drive was simply the most involving, enjoyable and satisfying of all the sports cars involved.”
Chief road tester Matt Prior said “the best driver’s cars are still those that don’t induce fear when you push the ‘ESP’ off button. They work with you, communicate with you, and allow you to exploit them for pure amusement. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS ticks all the boxes and more. It’s a very worthy winner.”
The British-built Noble M600 was ranked in second place, with judges praising its polished, surprisingly benign chassis and steering, the progressiveness of its controls and its astonishing straight-line pace. Third place went to the Ferrari 458 Italia, the fastest car on the day around the Donington circuit at 1min 15.9sec.
