Last of the first

We kick off our Cobra celebration on p82, when our Greg MacLeman gets behind the wheel of this AC 289 Sports. The last of the original Cobra line, our man makes the case for it being quite possibly the best, too.

But don’t think we’re done there. Then it’s time to check out four distinctively different successors…


Formal finery

For a complete change of pace, flick to p104 of the February 2022 C&SC, as Martin Buckley samples two luxury classic cars that wafted into the post-war era with supreme confidence.

Some cars’ reputations precede them and the allegedly wayward, frightening, even, Maserati Shamal is one such car.

Also in the February 2022 C&SC, the ‘luxury’ Citroën 2CV takes on the Renault 4 in a battle of everyday French classics that’s only getting more charming with every passing year.

That both were still being built until the 1990s, is a remarkable testament to their enduring appeal.


These features and many more are in our latest magazine, plus our regular news and views, historic motorsport round-up, industry insight and auction updates.
