Robb Report Car of the Year Napa Valley Meadowood

Car of the Year Napa Valley

Robb Report’s annual Car of the Year experience puts VIP attendees in the driver’s seat during the ultimate event that celebrates luxury, performance,  automotive design, and engineering. During this spirited competition, the world’s greatest automotive marques present their flagship offerings for the coming model year, offering the privilege of stepping in as a Robb Report automotive editor for the day. Guests are able to test-drive and evaluate up to 13 of the most extraordinary upcoming luxury and performance vehicles – to earn the title “Robb Report Car of the Year.” The results (and drivers’ comments) are then published in Robb Report’s annual Car of the Year issue.

In addition to the drives that wind through Napa Valley’s breathtaking roads, guests enjoy an incredible two-night experience complete with sumptuous wine-paired dinners and interactions with the world’s premier luxury brands at the spectacular Meadowood Napa Valley resort.
