New Top Gear mag: watch LaFerrari on track!

Maranello’s 950bhp V12 hybrid takes centre-stage in our massive Ferrari issue - watch it on the track here!

Get the massive Ferrari special edition of Top Gear magazine in all newsagents and supermarkets – ONLY AVAILABLE UNTIL TUESDAY!

Yes this month, we bring you a very special Ferrari edition of Top Gear magazine, in which we celebrate of some of Maranello's greatest creations. Our journey starts with quite simply the most extreme Ferrari ever: yes, we've got our hands on the keys to the 950bhp, V12-engined, hybrid-hypercar. LaFerrari.

After our exclusive drives of the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918, now have the last of the big three, and Ferrari's latest offering certainly doesn't disappoint.

We investigate LaFerrari's bloodline by taking its hypercar predecessors - the 288 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo, no less - around the TG Test Track. Then we head to Scotland for the ultimate V12 shootout, with the F12 Berlinetta taking on the Lamborghini Aventador Aston Martin's Vanquish in a battle of ultimate power. Oh, and we also take a 458 Speciale around the Italian island of Elba, and go skiing in the FF.

Keeping with all things Ferrari, we also find out how easy it is to buy an old F1 car, whether Ferrari's true love is racing or road cars and whether paying £25k for a secondhand Ferrari is good idea, or a very, very bad idea.

Plus win an exclusive VIP weekend at the 2014 FORMULA ONE SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX for you and a lucky friend (see issue for details).

There's also all the latest motoring news, with an in-depth look at the new Land Rover Discovery, VW's 395bhp Golf and Peugeot's Exalt concept. We investigate the future of Italian design houses, and José Mourinho takes our Driving Test.

And of course we've reviewed all the latest new cars that matter, including the Fiat 500L MPW, Audi RS6, Peugeot 308SW, Toyota Aygo and Porsche 911 Targa.

Get all of this, plus the latest news, reviews of all the cars you need to know about and, of course, the usual thoughts/ramblings from Clarkson, Hammond and May.
