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. Last year’s contenders for the coveted title included: Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante, Audi RS 5 Sportback, Bentley Continental GT Convertible V8, BMW M8 Convertible, Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody, Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder, Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupe, Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster, Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge, and Roush Stage 3 Mustang.

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