New issue out now: celebrating 30 years of Top Gear magazine!
A big shiny collector’s edition mag celebrates our 30th anniversary with the 30 greatest cars built between 1993 and 2023
We thought about it of course, getting every new car currently on sale in the UK together on the Brooklands banking for a precise tribute to the cover of issue #1 of Top Gear magazine... for about a minute. Such is the proliferation of choice over the past three decades that would plainly be idiotic, we’d need to shoot it from space. Needless to say, BBC budgets don’t stretch to away days on the ISS.
So, for our bumper 30th anniversary issue, we refined the idea to a Brooklands gathering of the 30 greats, one per year we’ve been around. Much more manageable. For most these would be official ‘Cars of the Year’, crowned at the time in our annual Awards. For a few, mostly in the early days before the Top Gear Awards existed, we had to fill in the gaps.

Oh, and who would have thought that finding a Bugatti Veyron would be easier than a Fiat Multipla? Crazy world.
Anyway, that’s not all you’ll find in this month’s XXL issue. We’ve also sorted some unfinished business with America using the new seventh-generation Ford Mustang, and joined the soon-to-be-three-time F1 World Champion Max Verstappen as he gets an introduction to the science of sideways in Mad Mike’s 1992 Mazda RX-7.
We’ve also driven the Lamborghini Lanzador concept car to figure out what this high-riding, so-called ‘Ultra-GT’ actually is. Plus, we pit the new Ineos Grenadier up against some proper working Land Rovers to see if it really is the heir to the original Defender.
Make sure you grab your copy now. Or if you fancy even more Top Gear magazine our special anniversary offer will get you a 12-issue subscription for just £30. Simply click this link to take advantage.
