What makes a super car a supercar? It’s a great question. For us, it’s a car with its engine behind the front seats and, with a few notable exceptions, ahead of the rear axle.
If that sounds like your cup of tea, join us in our Supercar Greatest Hits as we celebrate the finest such machines the world has ever seen, as featured in Classic & Sports Car over the past decade.
With almost 200 thick, glossy pages showing off some of the world’s best-loved cars, it’s a collector’s edition not to miss. Read on for a preview of what’s inside it – and scroll down to the very bottom of the page to find out how to get your copy.
Mick Walsh is the chap with the coveted task of embarking upon the ultimate Miura mission, as a trio of these world-famous beauties take on the Grand-St-Bernard pass.
Throw in the stunning, evocative photography courtesy of Tony Baker and you have 12 pages of sheer automotive bliss.
We’re also paying tribute to the wonderful wedge that is the Lotus Esprit, here in S1 and SE guises.
Ross Alkureishi, whose Corgi James Bond Lotus Esprit was a prized childhood possession, gets behind the wheel of both and tries to pick between Giugiaro and Stevens variants.
You won’t be surprised to read that one or two Ferrari models feature in C&SC’s Supercar Greatest Hits, but in the interests of variety we’ve selected just one for this preview: the Testarossa – and it’s not red!
The Pininfarina styling of the 1986 example we’re driving from page 104 might divide opinion, but James Elliott can’t help but fall for its charms from behind the wheel.
Sometimes, the stories behind supercars are just as fantastic as the machines themselves, and here we meet the man who brought Jaguar’s record-breaker to life.
Greg MacLeman’s in conversation with Alastair Macqueen, once the marque’s chief development engineer, to get the inside story on this Great British supercar.
