Every year we wonder how we will outdo our wheels Car of the Year awards ceremony – and every year we manage it. This time, for our 9th awards evening, we truly raised the bar.

Staging the bash outdoors at the glorious Waldorf Astoria on the Palm Jumeirah was a fine move and everyone from the UAE’s motoring industry was in attendance along with guest judges and even wheels readers.

This year we launched a brand new award – the My Wheels of the year - to go along with the usual favourites including Readers’ Choice and of course Car of the Year, which was awarded to the brilliant BMW M2.

We also broadcasted the event live on both our English and Arabic Facebook pages but if you missed that, worry not for you can always go back and find them there, but in the meantime, here’s a far more polished video of the night.

Will we be able to top this next year? Well, we’ve done it before, and we’ll do it again.
