Jeremy Clarkson Finally Reveals His Car of the Year — And It’s Not His Favorite FSO Polonez!
Every car enthusiast knows the name of Jeremy Clarkson. The renowned television show host snagged the title of an auto guru not only because of his extensive knowledge when it comes to automobiles and his impressive car collection but also because he was the original host of the prestigious show, Top Gear.
Clarkson’s notable records made him an important figure in the automobile industry. That’s why millions of his fans and car enthusiasts flock his social media accounts or segments to get the latest updates, tips, and advice when it comes to cars.
What fans most look forward to is his list of best auto picks, which he reveals every year. While we’re still in the second quarter of 2019, let’s reminisce Clarkson’s 2018 Car of the Year and why this vehicle is an incredible choice no matter what color you choose.
After receiving his inaugural award at The Sun newspaper and The Sunday Times’ conjunction ceremony, Clarkson was bombarded by requests from fans who eagerly anticipated for him to reveal his favorite car of the year. And the renowned journalist surprised everyone by choosing the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
For the past year, no other notable vehicles had gotten Clarkson’s attention like the Huracan Performante. While its speed and powerful features are on par with the brand’s reputation, Clarkson says that it is Huracan’s aesthetic look that set it apart from the rest.
Despite Clarkson’s controversial pick, most car experts lauded his choice. According to them, Lamborghini’s Huracan features an astounding V10 engine capable of running at a top speed of 202 miles/hour which makes it a beauty and a beast.
It can also accelerate up to 62 miles/hour under 2.9 seconds and holds an astounding lap record of 6:52:01. The vehicle also has aerodynamics system as well as aero vectoring. Here are other stunning collections hiding inside Clarkson’s garage.
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
Seeing as Clarkson loves to collect supercars with blinding speed and power features, he instantly fell in love with Lamborghini’s Spyder. He bought the said vehicle for an astounding $209,000 after he tested it on Top Gear.
Aston Martin Virage
Clarkson had his Aston Martin customized to become bigger and bulkier to accommodate to his sprawling height. The vehicle features a powerful v12 engine and a petrol head that can go up to 186 miles/hour and can accelerate up to 62 miles/hour in just 4.6 seconds. This vehicle may not be famous like other Aston Martin models, but Clarkson loves his automobile nonetheless.
Lotus Elise 111S
This hybrid vehicle features a VVC Rover K-Series engine and WT type technology to produce an astounding 143 brake horsepower. What makes this supercar appealing to the car enthusiasts (aside from its sleek look) is its relatively affordable $60,000 base price.
