I think the VW Polo will pick up the first award with the Audi TT-RS or Lotus Evora picking up the other.

Depends, if price is a factor I think the 370Z has a decent chance as well.

Give Polo the first spot.

I think the Ferrari or the R8 V10 would take the performance spot but I don't think the V10 has been liked as much as the V8.

This is true about the V10 R8, though it only has a slighty heavier engine than the V8 this does have a knock on effect on it's handling balance. Though that being said it still is one of the best handling mid-engined cars currently on sale.
