In the December issue of Wheels, we uncork the champers and crack open the COTY vault to celebrate 50 years of the world’s longest-established new-car award. Join us, as we gaze nostalgically at the cars, the controversies, the characters and the crashes. Plus, why we stand by the Leyland P76, and where we stand on the Camira.
Back in the present, we bring you the nominees for COTY 2012, before looking to the future, with a peek under the bonnet at the high-tech, small-block Chevrolet V8 that will power the next chapter in Australian performance sedans.
All that, plus a mega-test of thirteen small cars, a three-car hot hatch shootout, and much more in Wheels December, on sale now!
