DETROIT, Oct. 25 -- The AutoWeek editorial staff will announce its Editors' Choice Award winners for the 2007 Tokyo International Motor Show in its November 12 issue.

The 2007 AutoWeek Editors' Choice Award winners for the Best of Tokyo are:

BEST IN SHOW: Nissan GT-R -- "This is the super car everyone has been
waiting for since Nissan officials announced in 2001 that they would re-
create the icon," said AutoWeek Editor and Associate Publisher Dutch
Mandel. "A twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V6 pushes this coupe to a top
speed of 193 mph and from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds. The great news for
the U.S. is that Nissan will finally bring this flagship to our shores."

BEST CONCEPT: Mazda Taiki -- "This aero-efficient sports car blends the
best of the last three Mazda show cars with the company's next-generation
Wankel rotary engine: a power plant that celebrates its 40th anniversary
this year. It sets the way for the future front-engine, rear-drive sports
car."

MOST SIGNIFICANT: Honda CR-Z -- "Here's a car that finally reintroduces
passion and emotion in a legendary vehicle that is also powered by
alternative sources. The CR-Z is very much the spiritual successor to
Honda's beloved CRX, a subcompact rocket from the past."

MOST FUN: Suzuki X-Head -- "It's every kid's Tonka toy come to life. It's
boxy, it's burly, it's bright yellow and looks as though it wants to haul
heavy loads through woods. It's what happens when Suzuki builds a Hummer."

The AutoWeek editorial staff will announce its 2008 Editors' Choice Awards for the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January during the magazine's annual Design Forum. |GlobalGiants.com|
