XCAR Awards 2013: Car of the year

Deciding on our favourite car of 2013 was never going to be an easy task, but after some discussion we've settled on our ride of the year.

The Audi R8 impressed the entire team with is mix of handling finesse, brutish power and stunning looks. A truly brilliant car that we still talk about, lovingly, on a regular basis.

The Morgan Three Wheeler isn't only good to look at, it's brilliant fun as well. We thoroughly loved it.

Similarly, the Morgan Aero Coupe got the team all hot under the collar because, frankly, it's awesome.

The Lotus Exige S provides pretty much everything we like in a car -- angry looks, power, and awesome handling. It's a worthy addition to our shortlist.

How about a car that can tackle the desert while keeping you comfortable, AND keeping the kids entertained with an built-in DVD player? Oh, and it's got a supercharged 5.0-litre V-8. The new Range Rover is one hell of a car.

This may be a car that only one person will be able to experience at a time, but the BAC Mono provides an experience unlike anything else.

Play

BMW's E30 M3 may not have been built in this century, but it's still a wicked mix of everything we love: power, looks, style, and handling. If only they still made them like that, eh?

Play
Our winner is a worthy one -- it's pretty much the ultimate car. Created by a true petrolhead for people who want something truly special in their garages, the Pagani Huayra is our car of the year because it's simply...perfect.
