We know, we’re thinking exactly the same thing: how on earth did it suddenly get to December 2012? It felt like barely a few moments ago that we were shredding the tyres off the new Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ and getting all excited that the dawn of a new performance car had arrived. That was January, and suddenly we’re at the tail end of the year wearing our Christmas jumpers and novelty Stig party hats. Phew.
In fact, so much has happened since then, those cars now feel like they’ve been on earth for ten years. We’ve been in the new Ferrari F12, the Pagani Huayra and the McLaren 12C Spider; we’ve been on some ice, sold our souls to the devil for a Porsche (a Porsche), welcomed the new Jaguar F-Type and even drove a Le Mans racer that looks like a some kind of adult toy.
Our heads are still spinning from all this drifty, tyre-shredding hoonery, but it is of course, all for a good cause: to bring you, the good folk of the Earth, the very best from the world of motoring.
So here, in a handy end-of-the-year-roundup format, are our very favourite TG mag adventures from 2012. We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did. Happy New Year!
