Maria Sharapova (in the driver seat), the 26 years old No. 2 women’s tennis player in the world, has just signed a three year contract with Porsche as their new global brand ambassador. “Maria Sharapova is an exceptional athlete. She combines top performance in her sports with elegance and power. These are precisely the qualities that are embroiled in our sports cars,” explained Matthias Mueller (in the passenger seat) , CEO of Porsche AG. Porsche has always been a brand for man. The choice of the gorgeous Sharapova is a quite a chock. Well I think she brings a light, beautiful, fresh and sporty image to Porsche.

I was expecting a more organized and structured video by EVO for “the car of the year 2012” more like MotorTrend’s Best Driver’s Car 2012 that was released a few month ago. This video is filmed more like a normal day at the track than like a Car of the Year 2012 by EVO video. In it, Tiff Needell and Dickie Meaden take ten hot 2012 cars and take them to a spin. The end result was expected no major surprises. The fact that Tiff Needell decides not to turn the traction control of the Huayra off while driving it around the track is also a bummer.
