Here at Classic & Sports Car, we’ve got something new for you!
C&SC presents… Sports Car Legends is a brand-new offering and it is for sale right now, available in shops and online.
We’ve dug into the best from the pages of C&SC over the past 15 years to compile our ultimate collection of features celebrating the rich history of the sports-car genre.
Pulling this together was no easy job, given the popularity of these classic cars, so we set ourselves some rules.
First, it had to have an open top: the wind in your hair is one of the key pleasures of a traditional roadster. And ideally only two seats – a sports car is a selfish indulgence, and all the better for it.
There are a few exceptions to both of these, but our third rule was non-negotiable. Forget practicality, and never mind big power outputs, heady top speeds and rapid 0-60 times: the key feature of each and every one of the 70-plus machines featured here is that it was designed with a singular purpose in mind – the pursuit of pure driving pleasure.
So, what can you expect in the first in this brand-new C&SC presents… series?
Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, AC, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Triumph, Lotus, TVR, Morgan, Mazda, BMW and much more, that’s what.
Starring everything from pre-war machines, through the Swinging ’60s, then continuing into the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, we are charting the evolution of this much-loved genre via mass-market models, niche offerings and some you might’ve forgotten. There’s something for everyone.
And how can you get your copy?
C&SC presents… Sports Car Legends is on sale right now at newsagents and supermarkets, and you can also buy a copy online, here, and have it delivered to wherever you live in the world.
