New issue of C&SC on sale – hot Jags, 512BB LM, Aston Ulsters, retro 911s, C&SC on tour and much more

| 2 Feb 2012

The March issue of Classic & Sports Car officially goes on sale in the UK today (2 February) and it is packed with a sensational array of gorgeous cars.

We've been investigating hot Jaguars including the Coombs Mk2 (main image), the first true supersaloon.

As well as that, however, we list the hottest factory-produced variants of famous Jags and have an absolute blast in the bonkers 500bhp Lister XJ-S.

It's not all about Coventry cats, though, with an exclusive reunion of a quartet of works Aston Martins, a celebration of the Jensen C-V8 as it marks its 50th birthday, and a fantastic array of retro-look Porsches — can they really offer the best of both worlds?

If track cars are your thing then you can't miss our exclusive test of the NART Ferrari 512BB LM at Paul Ricard (grab your free wallpaper, below).

But if pottering around town praying you don't break down is more up your street, then join the C&SC team on its annual tour as the Poor Boys invade central London. At night. In rush hour. Just before Christmas. What could possibly go wrong?

In the market for a brilliant undervalued starter classic? The look no further than our definitive buyer's guide to the Triumph Spitfire.

On top of all that, there's all the news and sport from the classic car world, our regular fleet updates, some great discoveries, auction results and much much more.

As ever, we are making our favourite pictures available as free wallpapers for our readers. Just click on the link above any of these three pictures to download them.
