We've spent a year spitting fuel and scraping rubber over this green and pleasant land and we're finally ready to deliver our verdict. These are the cars of the British bloke - the ones we aspire to, we respect and we desire. Time for the shiny envelope bit. "And the winner is..."

 

ALFA ROMEO 4C
FHM CAR OF THE YEAR

A super-tech carbon fibre chassis, super-lightweight body and clever steering all contribute to making this little beast FHM's number one car of 2013. Good to have you back, Alfa.


NISSAN JUKE NISMO
SUV OF THE YEAR

Ambitious, fast, and more than a bit mental: this is a frog-eyed party balloon of a motor dropped straight from the pen of a Japanese anime cartoonist. More of this please, Nissan.


FORD FIESTA ST-2 MOUNTUNE
HOT HATCH OF THE YEAR

The noise, the steering wheel, the bloody cool seats – everything about this car is just so right. If you have £20k to spend on one car, this is the one for you.


JAGUAR F-TYPE V8 S
DROP TOP OF THE YEAR

Jag is back in a big way. After a long, long wait, the successor to the E-type made its debut in 2013. The result? Possibly the most sexy mother-humping car ever made.


SKODA OCTAVIA VRS
EVERYDAY CAR OF THE YEAR

This car is essentially the new VW Golf, but with a boot stuck on and a whacking great 2-litre engine put in the front. If you want something reliable, there is no better car out there.

AUDI NANUK QUATTRO
CONCEPT CAR OF THE YEAR

What do you get when you cross 544bhp with four-wheel drive and stick it all in a car that look's like the R8's older, wider, rugby-playing brother? This. That's what.
