VOTY 2021//Supercar Of The Year – Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
When it comes to supercars, the Brits surprised us this year with the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
Supercars are our favourite cars to judge and this year we got the chance to sit behind the wheel of some very exciting options from all over Europe and even Japan. These vehicles go beyond just raw figures and need to deliver and experience that is emotionally charged. For that, we had to look to one of the oldest carmakers in the game – Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera was our pick for supercar of the year. With a 5.2-litre biturbo V12 engine producing 725 PS and 900Nm of torque, the DBS Superleggara truly is something else to get behind the wheel of. Paired to a quick-shifting, mid-mounted ZF 8-speed auto, the DBS Superleggera is capable of 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 340km/h. Truly supercar numbers.
About the VOTY Awards 2021
The Vehicle of the Year (VOTY) Awards is sponsored by Allianz Malaysia Berhad and is judged by Daniel Sherman Fernandez, Ross Hadi, Amirul Mukminin and Subhash Nair from Drive Safe and Fast (dsf.my) and GohedGostan.com.
The selection process is simple and clean. All cars launched in Malaysia within 13 months of our cutoff date are eligible for entry. We contact all car brands officially operating in Malaysia and ask them for test cars for each of our judges. There’s no participation fee, no tables to buy, no package deals — nothing. Any judge who drives an eligible car gets to vote for it. A simple majority is all it takes for a vehicle to win in a given category.
The categories are kept as consistent as possible from year to year with some modifications when a certain category is not adequately represented or is over-represented in that particular year. You can view the categories over the years by looking through our “VOTY” tab on the dsf.my page.
Our title sponsor Allianz recognizes the integrity of our team and all players involved in deciding on winners and leaves all decisions to us regarding the winners. We hope our readers appreciate the efforts of all parties involved and provide us with feedback on how we can further improve on this.
