With the news today that Jaguar?s XF took out the ?Best Executive Car? at What Car? COTY, it would be remiss of us not to have a quick look at which car won the ?Performance Cars / Hot Hatches? category.

"Staggering performance, brilliant handling, great refinement and everyday usability", was enough to win the title for Audi?s R8 supercar ? oh, and I forgot to mention the impeccable build quality.

The only real negatives appeared to be the optional R-Tronic semi-automatic which is expensive and jerky at low speeds and the stratospheric pricing on the options list.

Fleshing out the top five were the following;

2 Porsche Cayman S - Driving pleasure in its purest form

3 Mini Cooper 1.6T S - The Mini is ludicrously good fun as ever

4 Honda Civic Type R GT - A real hard case - howling VTEC engine and sharp handling

5 Ferrari F430 - Beautiful, fast, mid-engined coupe with astonishing grip
