Under you’ll discover a compilation of those exams, however earlier than you dive in, let me provide you with my winners for the yr throughout 5 main classes. These picks characterize autos that debuted in 2022 or have acquired vital revisions. 

Greatest Supercar: Lamborghini Huracán STO

Out of the handfuls of autos I examined this yr. The Lamborghini Huracán STO is likely one of the few I nonetheless take into consideration usually. Its recipe is straightforward but extremely efficient. Mix a high-revving naturally-aspirated V10 with aero, suspension, and brakes that belong on a race monitor, and also you get some of the thrilling supercars I’ve ever pushed. It’s not the quickest nor the prettiest factor on 4 wheels, however the STO nails the enjoyable issue, and on the finish of the day, that’s exactly what a supercar ought to do. 

Greatest Worth: Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The newest Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an ideal instance of what occurs once you give engineers funding and freedom. Its high-revving V8 is a wholly new powerplant unique to this trim degree. It feels like one thing that ought to’ve come from Italy and develops a large 670 hp output. Energy apart, the brand new Z06 is agile, gentle, and very succesful. For the cash, this newest Vette isn’t simply outdoing automobiles at its $106,395 base worth however at greater than twice that too. 

Greatest Luxurious Automobile: Rolls-Royce Phantom Sequence II

This will come as a shock, however the $475,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom Sequence II is superb. It’s doubtless not solely one of the best luxurious automotive of the yr however in all probability ever. With its near-perfect mixture of consolation, tech, quietness, and high quality supplies, this newest Phantom is pleasurable each from the second row and behind the wheel. It presents the quietest and most comfy experience within the auto business, anticipated with an as-tested worth of $628,300, however nonetheless massively spectacular. It’s a becoming send-off as batteries will energy its successor. 

Greatest Luxurious SUV: Bentley Bentayga EWB

The Bentley Bentayga acquired a stretch this yr with the introduction of the EWB mannequin. Nonetheless, you’d be hard-pressed to inform simply by it. From the skin, it seems to be like another Bentayga, however inside, you get a genuinely monumental cabin. With its new airline seat configuration, it’s not possible to not experience in consolation. Regardless of its added measurement, the Bentayga hides its heft nicely. It’s maybe probably the most athletic luxurious SUV, mixing consolation and efficiency to ship a pleasant experience. 

Greatest EV: Pininfarina Battista

With practically 1,900 hp on faucet, the Pininfarina Battista is probably the most unhinged, quickest-accelerating, most unique automotive I drove all yr. With simply 150 models deliberate for manufacturing, every with a $2.2 million base worth, it’s uncommon as it’s fast. Swap by its varied drive modes, and also you go from a relaxed and cozy GT to a brain-melting hypercar. Step out, nevertheless, and also you’re greeted with a surprising design. In particular person, it’s spectacular sufficient that you just’d be content material simply it for some time. 

Now that you realize what among the finest automobiles of the years had been let’s have a look at a number of tales that noticed testing require racking up a major quantity of miles over at occasions every week or in a single day. 

Los Angeles to San Francisco: Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost

My practically 1,000-mile run from Los Angeles to San Francisco and again in a Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost is my most vital street journey story thus far. It’s the primary street journey story ever printed on duPont REGISTRY, however extra importantly, it required racking up a substantial quantity of miles in a automotive that’s usually used sparingly. Slicing by California, the Black Badge proved that the sportiest Rolls isn’t just comfy, fast, and surprisingly enjoyable to drive however simply my favourite new Rolls-Royce at present on sale.

Los Angeles to Las Vegas: Bentley Continental GT Velocity

At simply over 900 miles, this run to Las Vegas and again in a Bentley Continental GT Velocity proved that not solely is that this opulent coupe nice for protecting lengthy distances, however that it’s nonetheless a correct athlete. Powered by the final W12 the carmaker will ever produce, the GT Velocity is a masterclass in engineering. It takes a large machine that ought to cower within the corners and turns it right into a succesful canyon carver. It additionally helps that Bentley despatched us the best-looking GT Velocity ever made with a darkish inexperienced exterior end and inexperienced suede inside. 


Solar Valley Idaho: Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan/Ghost

My drive by Solar Valley, Idaho, with Rolls-Royce earlier this yr is the shortest however simply probably the most scenic of the three. A good portion of our route had us driving by snow-covered roads in each the Cullinan and Ghost to check out their normal all-wheel drive techniques. However actually, this can be a story of doing exactly what you must do behind the wheel of a Rolls-Royce, taking a relaxed drive in a wonderful automotive to take a look at some pretty surroundings.
