There's no shortage of automotive publications seeking to crown their own Car of the Year. And of course, each has their own criteria on which to base their decision. But for performance parameters, Evo does a more impressive job than most.

The British car mag does away with the minivans and the crossovers and focuses only on high performance machinery – regardless of price point – so when it comes down to naming the Evo Car of the Year, they have no trouble assembling the best driving machines that have come out in the past twelve months. Naming just one winner, though, is another matter entirely.

This year, the Evo team brought the very best the industry has to offer down to Portugal's Portimao circuit, and the crop of nominees was something to behold: You'll have to pick up the latest issue to find out which driving machine won out over such distinguished rivals, but we'll ask you: Based on what you know about these cars, which do you think should win? Follow the jump to watch the drool-worthy video footage and cast your vote in our poll.
