Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer vs Maserati Bora

Classic & Sports Car – Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer vs Maserati Bora

When you’re thinking of evocative makers of classic supercars, Ferrari and Maserati are right up there and this month’s cover stars don’t disappoint from p90.

Martin Buckley is the lucky one who’s getting behind the wheel of the Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer and Maserati Bora, the latter 50 years old this year, the former first shown that same year. It is a head-to-head that dreams are made of.


Lamborghini Countach at 50

Classic & Sports Car – Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer vs Maserati Bora

And speaking of 50-year-old Italian supercars, next it is the turn of the legendary Lamborghini Countach to step into the spotlight.

This time it’s the turn of Richard Heseltine to pick up the story of the supercar that still looks as otherworldly as it did when we first clapped eyes on it – and you can read this from p100 of the August 2021 issue of Classic & Sports Car.


Back together again

Classic & Sports Car – Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer vs Maserati Bora

The Malvern marque seems to cast a spell on some enthusiasts and Tim Harper is one such person.

Our Greg MacLeman tells the tale of this adored Morgan 4/4, once rolled into a cabbage field, then enjoyed as a daily driver and clung onto no matter what – until a chance find revealed its true story.


Jaguar’s saviour

Classic & Sports Car – Ferrari 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer vs Maserati Bora

In our August 2021 issue we’re also charting the rise and rise of the Jaguar X100, via XK8, XKR and the wild XKR-R prototype.

As the model hits its quarter century, our Greg MacLeman returns to celebrate the car that saved its maker.


Get all this and lots more in our brand-new magazine, as well as our regular news, columns, historic motorsport round-up, industry insight and auction updates.
