Northern Ireland’s stunning scenery has played the backdrop to ITV’s The Car Years.

The eight-part series focuses on eight specific years with show hosts Vicki Butler-Henderson and Alex Riley choosing a car they think is the best for that year. 

The classic cars have been put through their paces on some of the most picturesque driving routes in Northern Ireland – including the Causeway Coastal Route and the roads of the Mourne Mountains.

They will also see Vicki and Alex visit the Ulster Transport Museum in Cultra.

The show has been supported by Tourism Ireland and helps form part of its key activity in promoting the region across the UK and Ireland and around the world.
