Al­ter­na­tive ecoty

Evo - - INBOX -

I would like to present a slightly dif­fer­ent view­point on this year’s evo Car of the Year se­lec­tions (is­sue 244):

1. Ugli­est car of the year: Honda Civic Type R. From cer­tain an­gles it looks worse than a Fiat Mul­ti­pla!

2. Worst name of the year: Ch­i­ron [pic­tured above]. In Greek, ‘ch­i­ron’ ac­tu­ally means ‘worst’.

3. The most use­less op­tion: the Peu­geot 208 Gti’s two-colour paint job. Ru­mour has it that next year the French firm will add a third colour to the scheme and re­brand from ‘Peu­geot’ to ‘Pea­cock’.

4. The me­chanic's choice of the year: Alfa Romeo Giu­lia. So re­li­able that you will need a se­cond car for ev­ery­day use…

5. Heavy­weight of the year: Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT. At 2169kg, it has a mass 2.5 times that of an Elise!

Maybe you could con­sider adding these cat­e­gories to your list for next year.

Keep up the good work! Ge­orge Ts­a­pogas, Athens, Greece
