Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL8

The Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL8 is a standout bike with subtle design changes from its predecessor, the SL7, including a bigger headtube and more rounded tubing. It's 15% lighter with a 33% improvement in stiffness-to-weight ratio, and it’s 16.6 seconds faster over 40km than previous models, too.

Drawing from the lightweight design of the Aethos, the SL8 features a unique "Speed Sniffer" nose cone for reduced drag. The bike also boasts a 32mm tyre clearance and a narrower seatpost for better compliance and comes in a stunning pearlescent white finish.

The integrated Roval Rapide cockpit offers a 4w saving at 45 kph and a 50g weight reduction. The bike is equipped with a 52/36t crankset, 11-30t rear cassette, dual-sided power meter, and Roval Rapide CLX II wheels optimised for stability and aerodynamics.

On the road, the SL8 excels in acceleration, handling, and comfort, making it ideal for both fast rides and bumpy roads. Its lightweight build and aero performance inspire confidence and speed.

Best of all, the SL8 is way cheaper than its predecessor and an excellent value among top-end race bikes, promising both admiring looks and top performance, which is why it won the best road bike category at the T3 Awards 2024!

Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300e

While we love full battery-electric cars, the current infrastructure means they’re not always practical for everyone. For that reason, this year’s best car is going to a plug-in hybrid or PHEV. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is no ordinary PHEV though. This model offers one of the very best electric-only ranges of all hybrids, at around 70 miles, in addition to a 4-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol engine for those longer distances.

The car is packed full of technology too, with a Superscreen dash, combining driver, centre and passenger displays, video streaming, in-car gaming and an impressive interactive parking camera system. Plus, on the outside, the E-class is still one of the best-looking cars on the market. It’s a combination of class and technology that makes this plug-in hybrid E-Class a worthy car of the year.

Highly Commended: Kia EV9

Porsche Taycan

The 2024 edition of the Porsche Taycan takes an already impressive electric automobile and improves it in almost every area: range is boosted by 35% to 421 miles (or 678 kilometres), the car can get up to 62mph in just 2.4 seconds (an improvement of 0.4 seconds over its predecessor), and battery charging from 10% to 80% can now take as little as 18 minutes, down from 27.

Other improvements cover the air suspension, accelerating and braking, and you can even get a second infotainment system fitted now too. It’s a stunning blend of engineering and design from Porsche, a car that could significantly change the market – and it’s our electric car of the year.

Highly Commended: Rolls-Royce Spectre
