It’s here: Top Gear magazine's celebration of the British car industry! This month's brand new issue - out now - celebrates home-grown talent across many genres.

We start off the only way we can, with the brand new 503bhp Aston Martin Vantage taking on an epic roadtrip around the mountains of Morocco. There are views, V8s, and difficult border control...

Making a flying visit to Germany (bear with us), we check out the new Aston-ready AMG engines at the Affalterbach plant before, um, building one ourselves. Eek.

Then, we go late-night testing in the prototype McLaren Senna: a car delivering 789bhp and capable of 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds. Time for a shakedown on Surrey's worst roads.

Next up is a closer look at the altogether terrifying Land Rover Defender Works V8 – the original workhorse updated here with a 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet. That means 400bhp. In a Defender. Yikes.

There's a look into the rebirth of the TVR Griffith - a brand close to TG's heart – plus a peek at the SVO-modified Jaguar F-Pace. Plus, an interview with long-time automotive visionary Gordon Murray, who talks about his F1 days, work with McLaren and the new TVR project.

Elsewhere, we take a sobering trip along the streets of the area affected by the 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima.

This month’s shiny new issue is also packed with your regular musings from Chris Harris and Rory Reid - plus guest columnist Dany Bahar (boss of Ares Design) - and we've got twin tests galore. We’ve got the Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio vs Porsche Macan Turbo, Audi RS4 vs Mercedes-AMG C63S and the Jaguar F-Type vs Porsche 718 Cayman, plus in-depth reviews on the new Mustang, Range Rover P400e Autobiography and the Vauxhall Insignia GSI.
