Car of the Year Boca Raton

Robb Report returns to the sun-beaten pavement of Boca Raton to decide the winner of the world-renowned Car of the Year event this December. Guests have the opportunity to test-drive and evaluate a dozen of the top luxury and performance vehicles of the coming year on a simulated track – for an incredible, heart-racing drive experience. A one-of-a-kind automotive adventure, this drive experience in a controlled environment will include:

  • Dynamic vehicle acceleration to highlight low-end torque and ease of transmission shifting
  • Performance braking zone evaluating ABS braking control and overall stopping distance
  • Performance slalom to highlight driver input and vehicle response
  • Dynamic corners evaluating vehicle balance and suspension characteristics

The results (and drivers’ comments) are then published in Robb Report’s annual Car of the Year issue. This year’s contending vehicles include: Bentley Flying Spur, BMW M8 Gran Coupe, Lamborghini EVO RWD Spyder, Lexus LC500 Convertible, McLaren GT, Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon, Mercedes-AMG GT-R Roadster, and Rolls-Royce Ghost. More vehicles will be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition, gorgeous rooms and sumptuous wine-paired dinners at the iconic Boca Raton Resort & Club are part of the Car of the Year Boca Raton experience.
