Car of the Year 2011 gallery

Where do you go when you need a city that can provide 16 different, but equally stunning backdrops? Liverpool.

The European Capital of Culture 2008
Liverpool was the perfect venue for our Car of the Year photography. Its modern and cosmopolitan, yet steeped in history.

Wherever I took my camera there was a fantastic atmosphere helped no end by the can-do attitude of so many of the locals.

My thanks to them, and I hope everyone enjoys the pictures. John Bradshaw
