Detroit 2009: 2010 Z4 wins Eyes on Design Awards for best production vehicle

Each year, the Detroit Auto Show plays host to the Eyes on Design Awards, where a group of judges descend into the bowels of Cobo Hall to pick their favorite vehicles from the show. The nominees are predictably divided into two categories: Design Excellence for a Concept Vehicle and Design Excellence for a Production Vehicle.

This year's ceremony was MC'd by our very own John McElroy from Autoline Detroit, with judging duties handled by BMW design head Chris Bangle, Harley-Davidson chief styling officer Willy G. Davidson, and transportation design chair at the College for Creative Studies Larry Erickson. The two winners for production vehicle were the Audi R8 5.2 FSI and the 2010 BMW Z4, while Audi Sportback and Cadillac Converj took home the best concept awards. -- Autoblog

Both Audis look far from cheap. What do you mean cheap?

audi r8 is a sexy car but it has been out for a while now, it won enough awards when it came out IMO, it won car of the year, design of the year + made it on the first in the "automobile ALL STARS" edition.

Why'd they pick Chris Bangle?! He is qualified but when their own vehicle is a choice it's a bit biased...

I mean it's so simple now that take away the badge and it would pass off as nothing special in my eyes. I think Audi's design is very very boring. Their 3 main cars, A4, A6 and A8 all look like different sized copies of one model. I kinda dont respect that, it's lazy design. And when TT came out I loved the whole simple theme, big wheels and clear curves and straight lines. But it's been 10 years.... time to get something new. The front grill never grew on me as well.

hmm...I think if the Z4 design were taken to bigger proportions to rival the SL it would be a great great design....you could call it the new Z8. As far as anything as pretty as these 2 cars....hard to say
