Happy 100th birthday to Bentley! That’s the focus of the brand-new issue of Classic & Sports Car, on sale now.
A centenary is quite some milestone and we’re marking it in serious style, with sensational cars, passionate owners, bargain buys, plus an evocative celebration of the marque at Le Mans – keeping on reading for a preview.
But it’s not all Bentley. Mick Walsh is making memories at Montlhéry from page 166, there’s the amazing story of an Opel’s cross-country mission, plus we share our top tips for buying the mighty Mercedes-Benz SEC.
And that’s in addition to the stories we’re giving you a first look at below! So take a peek and we hope you enjoy reading. Oh, and you can buy the magazine here.
On board a Blower
This is not ‘just any’ Blower, if such a thing can be said to even exist: this is the original ‘Blower’ Bentley, the first very produced by Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin.
Quite a ride, then, and the perfect opening feature in our Bentley centenary special.
The affordable Continental R squares up to its big-money R-type ancestor, as Martin Buckley asks if the original really is 20 times better than the car it inspired.
Rears of the year?
Every classic has a tale to tell, but this TVR 2500’s rebirth as a competition car was about much more than motorsport.
Mick Walsh meets this pretty racing car and its determined, enthusiastic owner who’s now reaping the benefits of his work.
The July 2019 issue of C&SC is on sale now in the UK packed with these and many more features, as well as news, motorsport, auction updates, product reviews and all our regular content.
