Autocar's world-beating photography is one of the ingredients that keeps Autocar ahead of the competition. Our road tests and features are shot by our very own snappers, Stan Papior and Stuart Price, alongside the best contributors in the business.
Here, Stan and Stuart take a look back through their archives to deliver their favourite shots of 2012.
Meet the snappers:
Stan Papior - Chief photographer Stan recently celebrated 25 years as an Autocar lensman - a remarkable achievement given the gruelling weekly schedule of motor shows, press launches and group tests. He’s been responsible for some of the most iconic images ever to grace the pages of this magazine.
Stuart Price - Stuart is never happier than when he’s dangling precariously from the boot of a moving photographer’s car in a bid to capture that perfect tracking shot. When he’s not sharp shooting, he’s a long-suffering Aston Villa FC fan and enjoys expounding his theories about the mysteries of the universe.
