A beautiful brute

Classic & Sports Car – The Vantage at 70: inside the June 2020 issue of C&SC

This month’s cover star is the magnificent Aston Martin V8 Vantage and our man Martin Buckley is on hand to unravel its charms, of which there are plenty.

Indeed, “the more the world changed around the Vantage, the more appealing its aura of handbuilt machismo became,” he writes, and we couldn’t agree more!

Plus, with the Vantage celebrating is 70th birthday in 2020, keep on reading because from p84, we trace the history of the name, from Feltham to Gaydon.


Cruising in a Continental

You can almost feel the Californian heat seeping from the photo above, can’t you?

So while we dream of sunny days and the open road, get your road-trip fix from p108 with Greg MacLeman as he hits Palm Springs in this designer’s dream.

It’s quite the history lesson, not to mention a special example of the ‘clap-door’ Continental.


Wagons roll

Classic & Sports Car – The Vantage at 70: inside the June 2020 issue of C&SC

Some cars have to work for a living and in the June 2020 issue of C&SC you’ll find this at-first unlikely looking pair: the Range Rover and the Triumph 2.5 PI Estate.

It’s 1970, you need load-lugging capability and you have a budget of around £2000, meaning both of these British Leyland offerings are viable options.

Martin Buckley gets behind the wheels of both and traces their legacy.


Viva Lancia

Classic & Sports Car – The Vantage at 70: inside the June 2020 issue of C&SC

We finish our new-issue preview with this rare treat, a track test aboard the only Lancia D23 left from the Carrera Panamericana assault.

Having survived that most dangerous and legendary of road races, it has quite the tale to tell – and is a glorious sight to behold. Turn to p88 and get immersed in its story.


And this is just the tip of the iceberg, with so much more packed into the June 2020 C&SC to keep you entertained, even if you’re stuck at home on lockdown.

Plus, there’s all our regular content, including the latest classic car news, auction updates, and product and book reviews.

It’s on sale now. Buy a single issue here or subscribe here, or enjoy our digital edition, either bundled with the magazine and with our super offer here, on its own here, or on services such as Readly, Exact Editions and Zinio.

Happy reading!
