We've researched, voted, argued and nearly came to blows in the office... after much debate, we now bring you the best photos of the year. Browse through our top 10 - and add your comments below.

This stunning photo of the legendary Ferrari F40 was taken by Barry Hayden and was the cover image of our August 2006 issue celebrating 40 years of the supercar. It's an evocative shot, capturing the functional beauty of this, the first supercar to gain membership of the 200mph club. Thank that twin-turbo V8 developing a muscular 478bhp - in a flyweight 1100kg missile. One of the great Ferraris. .

Greg White's atmospheric shot of the Renault team in action at Silverstone appeared in our September 2006 relaunch issue. What makes this photo so special? It's redolent of hospital cleanliness, the polished floor and millimetric precision of the jack speaking volumes for a sport where attention to detail matters. Small wonder Renault went on to win two drivers' championships in a row.
