Escort excellence

Classic & Sports Car – Fastest Fords: inside the December 2020 issue of C&SC

For this month’s eye-catching cover story, C&SC’s Greg MacLeman went to meet one owner and his fantastic collection of Ford Escorts.

Exclusive: long-lost Bugatti Type 57S

Classic & Sports Car – Fastest Fords: inside the December 2020 issue of C&SC

We promised you an exclusive and here it is – the last unrestored Bugatti Type 57S that’s recently emerged from his hideaway deep in the English countryside.

Of course, our Mick Walsh is the man on the scene bringing us the full story of this fascinating barn-find wonder. Turn to p94 of our December 2020 issue as we reveal all and the many still-unanswered questions.


Origin of the species

Classic & Sports Car – Fastest Fords: inside the December 2020 issue of C&SC

Here’s another rarity – and another to be rescued from long-term storage. This is the final Porsche 901, brought carefully and painstakingly back to best by its maker to preserve its special, identifying marks.

From innocent TV tip-off to the fabulous finished product, this is a story you won’t want to miss.


Cadillac Allanté

Classic & Sports Car – Fastest Fords: inside the December 2020 issue of C&SC

When did you last see one of these? Exactly. Seldom seen on this side of the Atlantic, we get to grips with the incredible story – and logistical nightmare – of this transatlantic drop-top collaboration that set out to better Mercedes’ SL.

And the best bit for today’s enthusiasts is if you like the Cadillac Allanté, it’s much more affordable than its SL rival.


Want to know more? Our December 2020 issue also celebrates Mazda’s centenary, plus we sit down with Touring-Car legend John Cleland, pit the Pontiac GTO against the Nissan GT-R, and much more. 

Plus we have all our regular news, columns, auction updates and historic motorsport round-up.

The December 2020 issue of Classic & Sports Car is on sale now. Buy a single issue here or subscribe here, or get our digital edition, either bundled with the magazine or on its own here, or read on apps such as Readly, Exact Editions and Zinio.

Enjoy!
