Speed Week is TG's annual festival of fast. This year we gathered the greatest performance cars of the past 12 months at the fabulous Castellolí circuit. With one week, 2.5 miles of sticky Spanish tarmac and one Stig at our disposal, it's safe to say things rapidly got smoky.
The figures speak for themselves: 16 cars, £2,795,430, 99 cylinders and over 53 litres of displacement developing a total of 7,221bhp and 6,388lb ft of torque. Stats inflated by the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 meeting face to face for the first time anywhere in the world at this event.
Each car was track-tested against its rivals, allowing us whittle down the group to a shortlist of five (and the bloody Caterham 160) before a 1,000-mile road trip to the top of Andorra. You can read all about that here.
But if you're too lazy to read the words, click through the gallery above for some of our pictorial highlights. Then, if you wish to decorate your desktop with them, just click the size that takes your fancy, download it and add it to your computery devices background.
