Last night in London Jeremy, Richard and James officially revealed our Cars of the Year. You already know the shortlist – we let that out of the bag a few weeks ago – but the boys finally picked an overall winner in time for our awards bash, described by one onlooker as ‘surprisingly noisy’.
The biggish gong went to Volkswagen for the new Scirocco – a car Jeremy seemed to like mainly because it was “less practical than a Golf”, which was meant as a compliment, we think.
The awards ceremony passed off with almost no fighting, perhaps thanks to the presence of Stephan “Literally the Coolest Man in the World Ever” Winkelmann, the CEO of Lamborghini and Top Gear’s Man of the Year. He really is ridiculously cool.
Other noteworthy guests included Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, Charley Boorman and Dragon’s Den stars James Caan and Theo Paphitis.
