Winner in best car, design and most coveted categories

Audi Canada captured the triple crown of Canadian automotive awards with its all-new R8 mid-engine sports car. At the opening press conference of the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto, the spectacular Audi R8 was presented the 2008 Canadian Car of the Year award by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).

The R8 beat 11 other “best new” category winners, announced last December, to secure the prestigious Canadian Car of the Year honours.

The flashy R8 was also declared the winner of AJAC’s Best New Design award. In addition, Canada’s leading auto writers and editors, forced to revise their list of “dream cars,” also selected the Audi R8 for the rarely presented AJAC Most Coveted Vehicle award.

  • The AJAC Canadian Car of the Year competition gathers more than 60 prominent Canadian automotive journalists in Niagara-on-the-Lake for the annual “TestFest” event.

  • This program has received high praise because the evaluation and voting processes are carried out in a professional, extremely fair, serious and equitable manner.
