As the shutters come down on another year, our photographers pick their favourite images that they've captured from the past 12 months
25 December 2013

Autocar's team of photographers are some of the best in the business.

Throughout the past year they've taken tens of thousands of photos, featuring over 500 cars. 

Whether it's photographing Steve Sutcliffe at the wheel of a Ferrari 458 Speciale in Italy, snapping a Volvo V60 in the snow-covered hills of Sweden, or even taking a 650-mile round trip in a Range Rover Evoque in search of the perfect picture, this year our snappers have done it all.

After a year spent capturing pictures of some of the fastest and rarest cars in the world, and talking to the people who made them, our in-house photographers Stan Papior and Stuart Price have counted down their top photos, and their best memories of 2013.

Stan Papior: "Spending three days in early May driving from Milan to Rome with Mark Tisshaw in a Lamborghini Gallardo as part of the company's 50th anniversary celebrations was pretty special, with quite a collection of cars too (the Miura had to be my favourite) and what scenery! That and meeting Usain Bolt at the LA motor show were but two highlights of the year."

Stuart Price: "From the Detroit and Tokyo motor shows, to sunny Pikes Peak to freezing Welsh mountains, 2013 has again been an incredible year. If I could pick out three main highlights (and in no particular order) it would be driving a Porsche 911 GT3 across the UK, winning a prestigous 'Photographer of the Year' award and travelling to shoot the Pikes Peak race in Colorado."

Our Verdict

Jaguar F-Type Convertible

The Jaguar F-Type convertible provides direct competition to the 718 Boxster and the 911 Cabriolet, but can the big cat take a bite out of its Porsche rivals?
