No stopping for a siesta!
Alastair Clements was the man with the oh-so arduous assignment of leaving the grey of London behind and heading to Spain for a special classic road trip.
Clements is a self-confessed Alfa Romeo sceptic, so can this 1966 Duetto 1600 charm him, or will it only be the stunning scenery that wins his favour? You’ll have to read it to find out.
Five go frolicking
That’s quite a roll call of desirable dropheads and Martin Buckley is the man tasked with choosing the best of this illustrious bunch.
Whether you have the means to indulge in such luxury classic motoring or not, you’ll find plenty of drool-worthy photographs to enjoy over these eight pages.
Born of frustration
Wow! This one really is a stunner.
Richard Heseltine shares the story of the Serenissima Spyder, a car built by former Ferrari employees and conceived to beat the Prancing Horse on track.
Half a century on, the fact that it failed seems to matter very little, considering its delicious patina, gorgeous lines and intriguing backstory. Appetite whetted? We hope so.
Restored to perfection
Enchanting from every angle, this Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is the result of one devoted owner’s love and pure blood, sweat and tears.
Julian Balme meets the eBay-sourced classic and its caring keeper, who has taken it from a breakdown-prone project to a top-level concours star.
If you need a classic that can take all the family’s holiday luggage and mix it with the best on the autobahn, look no further.
Why? Because this AMG-fettled 123-series Mercedes estate hides a V8 under the bonnet – and Greg MacLeman is the lucky chap who’s sampled its rare recipe for undercover awesome.
Delve into its history and delight in its many special details from page 148 of our latest magazine.
