Brand new Top Gear magazine: out now!

  1. Alfa Romeo 4C –
    the verdict!

    Buying an Alfa Romeo is more often a decision made
    with the heart, not the head. And up here in the Alpine sun, as we stare at the
    new Alfa 4C, it’s easy to see why. It’s low, wide and muscular – a stunning
    shape and so very near to perfection. But is the future of Alfa good enough to
    cast aside old prejudices? This month, Top Gear magazine gives our verdict.

    Richard Hammond also gives us his thoughts on the
    4C. A man who knows that you’re not a real petrolhead until you’ve owned an
    Alfa, he is now seriously thinking of making the big step; and we look back at
    our love affair and passion for Alfa over the decades.

    Also this month, we drive the new BMW 4-Series to
    see whether it can compete with the rivals in its class. And we speak to some
    very clever people from the Daimler advanced development department about its
    Mercedes S-Class that has just driven 60 miles in normal traffic – unmanned!

    We find out if the new Monza concept can make
    Vauxhall cool again and pitch the Rolls-Royce Wraith against the Bentley
    Continental GT and the Range Rover SDV8, in our most luxurious road test ever.

    As always, we bring you all the latest motoring
    news from across the planet and review all the cars that you need to know
     about.

    And, of course, Top
    Gear
    magazine is the only place where you can get the intellectual
    ramblings of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May each and every
     month.

    Free Top Gear Guide to Watches 2013

    This month’s issue also comes with a fantastic free
    supplement – the Top Gear Guide to
    Watches 2013.
    Covering all the shiny new watches worth knowing about, the
    future of timekeeping and some incredible timepieces inspired by Mercedes,
    Ferrari and Bentley.

    Our editor-in-chief, Charlie Turner gets ‘hands-on’
    at the Bremont workshop, and we look at the evolution of the ultimate motoring
    racing watch, the Tag Carrera.

    We also visit Detroit, a city that once produced
    four of every five cars sold in the world, to see how Shinola watches are
    taking the local workforce’s mechanical expertise and scaling down the
    production lines to produce some engines of a smaller nature.

  2. Concepts,
    more concepts… and velvet Ferraris

    In this month’s News section, we take a first
    glimpse at Caterham’s new AeroSeven concept. The light, involving, deeply,
    obsessed with power-to-weight road car that Caterham hopes will be the basis
    for expansion in the coming years.

    On the subject of concepts, we check out the Sport
    Quattro and the Nanuk, recently unveiled by Audi at the Frankfurt motorshow.
    Moving on to the BMW i8, looking like a concept but already in production, this
    stunning machine will bring the future a lot closer to the present.

    We also look at the new brand of posh crossovers
    with the Mercedes GLA, Lexus LF-NX and Infiniti Q30. Mercedes introduces us to
    formidable levels of tech and luxury with the new S-Class Coupe (expect a
    formidable price tag).

    In Planet Top Gear, we get scared by Russia’s
    insane roads, Hammond drives the iconic Lotus Elan S3, we check out the new
    animated movie Turbo and Lewis
    Hamilton takes this month’s Driving Test.

    And this month, Jeremy discusses car wrapping
    (velvet Ferraris and pink Rolls-Royces anyone?), Richard is intent on reviving
    single horsepower transportation and James tries to improve his much-loved
    Ferrari 458.

  3. And
    that’s not it…

    If you want the best in luxury transport, then you
    need to buy British… Rolls-Royce, Bentley or Range Rover. We bring all three
    together for without doubt our most opulent road test ever.

    The BMW 4-Series has arrived; we send it out to
    face-off against two of its closest rivals – the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe
    and Audi A5.

    Until recently, self-driving cars were still
    relatively unthinkable. However, as drivers are waking up to the idea, we’re
    starting to ask not if, but when. We speak to Mercedes-Benz about its
    self-driving S-Class that has just driven 60 miles in normal traffic with no
     driver.

    The height of high-performance luxury 34 years ago
    came in the form of the Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9; we see how the new S63 AMG
    compares in our double S-Class Generation
     Game.

    Paul Horrell talks to the man tasked with bringing
    the Griffin back from the brink. Can his Monza concept make Vauxhall cool
     again?

    We also meet Bruce Meyers, the 87-year-old inventor
    of the Baja 1000 and creator of one of the world’s most iconic cars – the Manx
    dune buggy.

  4. First
    drives and new car reviews

    Elsewhere this month, we take a first drive in the
    new Cherokee to see if it can rekindle our love affair with Jeep. MG (re)enters
    the cheap and cheerful city-car market with the MG3 3Style. The fleet-buyers’
    favourite, the Vauxhall Insignia, has a facelift, and the Volkswagen Group uses
    its plug-in hybrid system on the Audi A3 e-tron.

    At the quicker end of the new arrivals, we check
    out the fastest Aston Martin ever, the V12 Vantage S; not far behind is the
    Porsche 911 Turbo and making a good account for itself is the Megane
    RenaultSport Red Bull Racing.

    We also check out the bonkers Twizy RenaultSport F1
    (above) – quite possibly the craziest car of 2013.

    Also reviewed this month is the Skoda Rapid
    Spaceback, VW e-Up, Audi A3 Sportback, Vauxhall Corsa Eco, Dacia Sandero
    Stepway, VW Scirocco GTS and Renault Scenic Xmod.

    In the TG Garage this month, we have the BAC Mono, Peugeot 208 GTi, Subaru BRZ, Mazda
    CX-5, Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Fiat Panda 4x4, Fiat 500e, Lexus GS, BMW 3GT,
    Jaguar F-Type, Clio RenaultSport and Ford Fiesta ST.
