The bunny wranglers over at Playboy are no strangers to fine automobiles, as high-end exotics often grace the glossy pages of America's favorite gentleman's magazine. The Playboy empire even goes racing, sponsoring no fewer than six cars in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the Grand-Am Cup Series. So when the magazine wants to throw its own COTY list into the mix, despite the fact that we're utterly sick of COTY lists, we'll give it a glance. Rather than your boring old categories of Best Sports Coupe and Best SUV, Playboy also threw a few extra categories in that aren't your typical COTY fare, like Best Cross-Dresser and the Al Gore Special. The overall winner and Playboy's 2007 Car of the Year is the BMW Z4M Coupe. You can check out all the winners below. We hope we didn't spoil it for you, because we know you read Playboy for the articles.
BEST TWO-WAY PLAYER: VW Eos


BEST SPORTS COUPE: Porsche 911 Turbo


BEST SUV: Cadillac Escalade


BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK: Ford Shelby GT500


BEST PICKUP: 2007 Toyota Tundra


BEST ROADSTER: Saturn Sky Red Line


BEST CROSS-DRESSER: Mazda CX-7


THE AL GORE SPECIAL: Lexus GS 450h


PLAYBOY'S 2007 CAR OF THE YEAR: BMW Z4M Coupe

I think a Z06 would be a better bang for your buck. It outperforms the GT500 by quite a bit. Maybe they factored in the price difference, but still...

Of course they factored the price in. It's the biggest bang for your buck, not the best performer. The GT500 costs a considerable amount less than the Z06 and though it may not perform as well, it does pretty damn good for the money.

try comparing apples to apples next time.

Agreed.

The Nissan Titan won numerous awards and it is a hell of a truck... Fnr, you're just upset that Ford, Dodge (which does make sick trucks..), and, ugh, Chevy are once again being outdone by their Japanese counterparts.

Wait, you say the caddy is sexy, and then insult a car that is actually good for something?

Lets see what the caddy is good for: overpriced, underpowered, oversized, overrated, slow, bad gas mileage, and not even all that luxurious. Sweet car, dude.

Yeah, but it's GM, so you have to look past all the negatives and only see the emblem that's placed on the grill.

- Cadillac Escalade
- the very ugly BMW Z4M coupe
- and the Mazda CX-7

^ That 23k saturn looks a hell of a lot better than that 50k Z4.

There are plenty more than that, despite what the anti-US car crowd likes to say.

I'm not part of the 'anti-us car crowd'.

I'm just part of the anti-crap quality pos poorly engineered car crowd which stands for GM.
