Good find.
Found this interesting
BEST PINT-SIZE PERFORMANCE: Volvo C30
Looks like they invented a whole new category for this one.

I have to agree with the hottest car of the year.
That Audi R8 is the hottest car ever made.

Nice list; Just proves further that Playboy is about a lot more than the women only. If I told anyone I was actually *reading* the mags articles, no one believed me!

Second that!
Interesting list. I'm really not surprised the R8 takes the lead now.

I wonder what Hugh Hefner's definition of "Hottest Cars" is? Is it those cars that his playmates look best photographed in therefore guaranteeing increased Playboy sales or a genuine fashion statement ?
