The Holly Reich Dream Car Award, dedicated to one of the founding judges for the “Women's World Car of the Year,” earned McLaren its second consecutive win with the 720S. The 570S received the award in 2016.
When the results were announced, Sandy Myhre, CEO of the Women's World Car of the Year, emphasized: “The car that wins the Supreme Award has undergone a rigorous test by 25 judges from 20 different countries. The election is a democratic process and the models that have won their categories are really outstanding ”. The jury initially nominated 420 cars for the vote, 60 of which were then shortlisted. This is the eighth edition of the Women's World Car of the Year Award - the only one in which the jury is all women.
