LOVE your work, but I have a tech question on the two Benzís at PCOTY. Why, with more weight, power and sporting overtones, does the GT S have four-piston front calipers and two-piston rear calipers, against the C63 Sís six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers? Doesnít make sense.

Donít agree with your Porsche 911 GT3 PCOTY choice, either. The C63 is the best choice, but silly money for most.

I sold my 997 manual Turbo for its useless ride, ridiculous road noise, and over-rated quality at its price. So, for some fun, buy the MX-5 and a second-hand naturally-aspirated C63, and get real fun for less than half the money of the Porsche.

Also, please suggest to Cockburn (unless itís a Photoshop job) not to do silly things at the wheel, as there are imitators out there with no skill. Besides, doing a crossword while chasing a Porsche 991 GT3 at 140km/h on public roads is an even bigger no no.

Thankfully, Chris, our man Paul was not completing a five-down while chasing a 911 GT3, even if thatís what our designer wanted you to think. It was indeed a Photoshop joke.

And yes, some of the Merc-AMG GT S and C63ís brake specs were incorrectly listed. The GT S actually sported sixpiston calipers up front (carbon ceramic option), while both it and the C63 used single-piston sliding rear calipers.
