The brand-new C&SC presents… Supercar Legends is on sale now – and it's packed full of fantastic stories on some of the world's most exciting high-performance icons.
When the world’s finest manufacturers pursue the most extreme performance thrills, legends are bound to be born, as this collection of supercar stories from the past 15 years of Classic & Sports Car attests.
We fire up a GT40 among its spiritual successors, explore the design story of the landscape-shifting Lamborghini Miura, and let its rivals from Maserati and Ferrari follow in hot pursuit. That’s just for starters.
Blasting into supercar maturity comes a set of four Countaches, tested back-to-back in the Italian foothills, plus we pit an LP400 against the bruising De Tomaso Pantera, and shine a light on rarities such as Alfa Romeo’s Tipo 33 Stradale.
As the supercar heavens sprinkle turbocharged performance upon the genre, we look at the Lotus Esprit Turbo ownership proposition and let the outrageous Ferrari F40, Jaguar XJ220 and Bugatti EB110 loose on track.
The supercar tale continues into the modern era where Honda’s NSX challenges the European establishment, and three very different V12s from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin showcase turn-of-the-century progress.
It’s all topped off by drives in McLaren’s epic F1 and a trio of new-era Bugattis, so if your idea of motoring nirvana is the ultimate in performance, then this will be a 196-page-turning screamer.
You won’t want to miss it!
