Readers choose best of 2007 for Auto Motor und Sport

When the people speak, we listen. And apparently so does the German buff book, Auto Motor Und Sport. They polled 100,000 of their own readers and asked them to list their favorite vehicles in ten different segments. Each segment was broken into two categories: Domestic (German brands) and Import.

The results can be viewed by clicking the link, but there were a few tidbits that deserve note. First, when it comes to imports the Germans are big fans of Italian iron. The top slots for the "Middle Class", Luxury Class, Sports Car and Cabrio, were the Alfa Romeo 159, Maserati Quattroporte, Ferrari 599 GTB and F430 Spyder, respectively. Secondly, if buyers were forced to abandon their Audi A6 in the "Upper Middle Class" category, they'd get behind the wheel of a Chrysler 300C. Interesting.

Naturally, the 911 received top honors when it came to crowning the favorite German sports car, while the Merc S-class took the number one spot in Luxury and the BMW 3-series was the most preferred mid-size vehicle.

Interestingly, in the "Minicar" category, the MINI took home both the Domestic and Import crown, which gave us a bit of a chuckle.

Check out the results by clicking the "Read" link and feel free to weigh in with your own picks.
