The Opel Insignia is a 2008 car. It won the European Car of the year 2008. I don't think it should qualify in this. However, Buick Regal which is the US spec Insignia is a new 2010 car.

IMO it's a tough call btween the Merc E-Class and the Toyota Prius. The E scores in technological advancements while the Prius scores with it's Hybrid technology.

The 2010 World Performance Car will be chosen from the following top ten finalists:
Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Audi R8 V10
Audi TT RS Coupé / Roadster
Ferrari California
Jaguar XFR
Lotus Evora
Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG
Nissan 370 Z
Porsche 911 GT3
Porsche Boxster / Cayman
In this case i think the Ferrari California takes the cake. It's a superb GT car!
