Corvette Z06 big winner as Spike TV's AutoRox rocks Vegas
We've been too busy throwing down new posts to attend Spike TV's second annual AutoRox awards, but apparently that didn't stop the cable network from going on with the show at Fremont Experience in Las Vegas. Hosted by rapper/actor Ice Cube and featuring a variety of performances and celebrities, the show is America's only nationwide televised automobile awards ceremony. Chevrolet's Corvette Z06 came away the big winner, netting the night's top honor for "Car of the Year," as well as taking home the "Best Sports Car" and "Deal of the Year" awards.
Other big winners included former Chrysler Chairman and CEO Lee Iacocca, who took home the "Icon Award". Sadly, Snoop Dogg was apparently unable to deliver the award to his golfing buddy, so 24's Kiefer Sutherland stepped in on his behalf.
Other winners include:
BEST TRUCK - Honda Ridgeline
BEST LUXURY CAR - Audi A8
BEST SUV - Land Rover Range Rover Sport
HOTTEST EXOTIC - Bugatti Veyron
BEST TUNER - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX
BEST CONCEPT CAR - Chevrolet Camaro
BEST MUSCLE CAR (viewers' choice) - Dodge Charger SRT8
Catch the delayed broadcast on Tuesday, April 18th on Spike TV, when it airs from 10pm-11:30pm Eastern.
