Newport Pagnell Vs Maranello


Aston’s iconic DB4GT goes head-to-head with Ferrari’s magnificent 250SWB in the August issue of Classic & Sports Car (now on sale)!

The pairing is the final 'back to back' in the 20-strong Ultimate Showdown series that’s featured Citroën's DS against an NSU Ro80, VW’s Beetle against Issigonis’ Morris Minor and the superlative Lancia Aurelia Spyder against AC’s legendary ACE.

We’ve also put an Alfa Spider against its Hethel rival: the Lotus Elan, pitted a Fiat 124 against an MGB and checked out whether Chevrolet’s answer to the Mustang - the Camaro - really cuts the mustard.

Those are just some of the fabulous pairings we shared with readers over the last 4 years in the run up to this month’s duel in which lucky C&SC contributor Russ Smith samples what are arguably two of the world’s greatest GTs – with a combined value of £4.4m!

Find out what he makes of them in the August issue.
