Autocar's photographers, Stan Papior and Luc Lacey, have what many would call a dream job.

They've spent the past 12 months travelling the world to capture some of the rarest, most powerful and most expensive cars in the world on camera.

They've taken tens of thousands of pictures of hundreds of cars, ranging from storming hypercars such as McLaren's P1 to futuristic concepts like Infiniti's Q80 Inspiration, and smaller city cars like Renault's Twingo.

For Luc, his best memory of 2014 was capturing Lewis Kingston's mighty long-term Vauxhall VXR8 GTS for our Britain's Best Driver's Car feature. "The shoot was at Castle Combe, a favourite Autocar location," says Stuart."Driving the car was friend of Autocar and drift guru Mauro Calo, who was more than happy to fill my face with smoke on each attempt at getting the shot. I had to get very close to the action to make it as dramatic as possible."

It's not all about the cars, though, as Stan Papior's best moment involved meeting new Williams boss Claire Williams, as part of her interview with Steve Cropley. "She has an extraordinary story," Stan says. "Hearing about her hopes for the Williams team has restored my faith in F1. She's a very helpful and sincere person."

Asking them to pick the best photos from this year is a hard task, but you'll find their favourite snaps in the gallery above.

McLaren P1

With hybrid hypercars from Porsche and Ferrari on the horizon, the stakes couldn't be higher - so has the P1 risen to the challenge?

This site is so frustrating.....

.....if you're not quick enough to get a post on the first page then you can forget it because all subsequent pages are just a repeat of the first page, despite confirmation that 'Your comment has been posted'. Oh no it bloody hasn't!!!

Don't worry in the New Year these problems will all be fixed. We can enjoy this fine site the way it is meant to be enjoyed. Unlike a certain other site that takes an age to opEen eVery Opportunity and throws more adds than a January sale at you. Happy New Year to all.

Photographer Credits

Hi Autocar,

I've noticed this year in particular that you've had some great photos accompanying reviews and test drives, but the photographers are never credited.

I understand that they are mostly freelance staff and that all licences belong to Autocar, but it would still be nice to see who the photographers are!

Thanks.
