Playboy is hardly a stranger when it comes to the practice of compiling lists of some of the world’s hottest models, and that includes car models. Each and every year the popular men’s magazine puts together a list of some of the best cars in a variety of segments, and now the 2014 list is out.
The all-encompassing title of Playboy’s 2014 Car of the Year went to Jaguar’s stunning F-Type, picked because of its beauty, performance and its perfect embodiment of the Jaguar brand. The car was also a treat for the magazine’s testers, who found it difficult to find a flaw with.
However, when it came to the best sports car, the F-Type wasn’t the winner. Instead, it was the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray that took top honors in this department. Simply put, the testers found that the car offers a lot for the money.
