Automobile 2009 Awards

• 2009 Automobile of the Year: 2009 Nissan GT-R
It rides like a subway car, sounds like an appliance, weighs a ton, and isn't that pretty. And you know what? We're still naming the 2009 Nissan GT-R our Automobile of the Year.

2009 Technology of the Year: Direct Fuel Injection
For enabling a major step forward in gas and diesel engine power, efficiency, and cleanliness, direct fuel injection is Automobile Magazine's 2009 Technology of the Year.

• 2009 Design of the Year: 2009 Audi A5
We knew the 2009 Audi A5 was a beautiful car, but no one really fully appreciated the quality of its total design before driving it.

• 2009 Man of the Year: Takeo Fukui
In an era when platinum-paid executives rarely deviate from the orthodoxy of the crowd, Honda's Takeo Fukui has successfully avoided faddish trends and instead stayed true to the founding principles of Soichiro Honda.
