Havana hero

Classic & Sports Car – Barn-find Gullwing: inside the October 2020 issue of C&SC

Join us this month for a fascinating tale of racing glory, detective work and smuggling – yes, really! And all for the love of this gorgeous Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’.

A story of patience and a serious labour of love, turn to page 86 and find out more.


Out of tune?

Classic & Sports Car – Barn-find Gullwing: inside the October 2020 issue of C&SC

Our Martin Buckley puts the innovative, stylish, but ultimately doomed Cord 810 under the microscope.

And it has definitely lost none of its wow-factor eight decades since it first broke cover.


Bristol vs Lagonda

Classic & Sports Car – Barn-find Gullwing: inside the October 2020 issue of C&SC

Buckley’s back – but with a very different pair of classic cars.

Both these dropheads hail from an era when money was no object and quality ruled, but will our man pick the Bristol 405 or the Lagonda 3 Litre? Find out from page 96 of our October 2020 magazine.


Sting in the tail

Classic & Sports Car – Barn-find Gullwing: inside the October 2020 issue of C&SC

The greatest of all Porsche’s 911 racers, the 3.0 RSR is quite a beast.

And in our latest issue, we reunite this car with one of its former drivers, ‘Mr Porsche’ Nick Faure, who raced it at Le Mans, no less – Greg MacLeman has the story.


Also in our latest magazine, we share the tale of an epic classic road trip through India, get behind the wheel of a surprisingly racy Citroën Traction Avant and much more, plus we have all our regular news, auction updates, historic motorsport round-up and more.

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

We hope you enjoy it!
