I recommend going out and buying the new MOTOR mag. BFYB is a good read this year - unfortunatley no Ford contenders (except the Fiesta) as no new models.
The Lancer Evolution VIII was the deserved winner, coming in at $61,990. It did a 0-100 of 5.37 and 400m of 13.84. It also got the second fastest lap time ever around Winton Raceway (in BFYB) beaten only by this years BMW M3 CSL (which costs $210,000 and wears semi racing slicks).
Interestingly the best times they could manage out of the SS (on a cold day) were a 0-100 of 6.48secs and 400m of 14.50 secs which is slower than most XR8 times I have ever seen. Maybe they didnt get a "warmed" up press car this year...
2003 BA XR6, T5, Blueprint. Herrods exhaust, unifilter ,painted calipers.
