Robb Report’s annual Car of the Year experience puts VIP attendees in the driver’s seat during the ultimate event that celebrates luxury and performance automotive design and engineering. During this spirited competition, the world’s greatest automotive marques present their flagship offerings for the coming model year.
At the event, the vote is in your hands as you pursue the ultimate test-drives on the winding roads of California’s breathtaking wine country. The results (and drivers’ comments) are then published in Robb Report’s annual Car of the Year issue. Beyond the driving experiences, Car of the Year includes extraordinary dinners, exclusive wine tastings, a gorgeous setting, and fun experiences with the world’s superlative brands.
Robb Report Automotive Editorial Consultant
Since 2004, I’ve had the pleasure of corralling 13 of the most exciting new sports and luxury cars to share with our judges, who experience each one behind the wheel, often before anyone else. Our guests are a discerning audience—they know cars and they buy what they love. As regular as a holiday, Car of the Year comes around, but unlike most holidays, gets better every year.
