2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Car of the Year
Here's one more Car of the Year list, from Playboy. We have no problems with the winners, since they all carry a goodly dose of technology, including the over-the-top gull-wing door Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, $183,000 list, with a 563-hp V8 engine that reaches 60 mph in 3. seconds, a space-frame chassis, navigation system (an older version, alas), Bang & Olufsen audio (plus the music from the engine), and adaptive cruise control. In exchange for snug space for your legs in the cockpit, you are guaranteed quick access from the parking valet, who'll leave the SLS AMG out front and center. Other winners after the jump:
These are Playboy's other top cars for 2011: • Convertible - Porsche Boxster Spyder • SUV - Jeep Grand Cherokee • Hybrid - Honda CR-Z • Sports Sedan - Aston Martin Rapide • Most likely to succeed in 2011 - Hyundai Equus

Not surprisingly, the supreme title was awarded to the supercar Mercedes SLS AMG in Stuttgart.
