Welcome to the 300th issue of Top Gear magazine!
New issue out now: our 50 game changers, £300 challenge and much more
Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that we bring you a very special Top Gear magazine: it’s our 300th issue!
To celebrate 24 years of bringing you the world’s finest cars, greatest group tests and wildest adventures, we’ve put together an action-packed celebratory issue for you.
First up, we pick the fifty greatest cars that have defined the car world since 1993. From hot hatches to off-roaders via the realm of luxury, we’ve got every base covered.
Next up comes TG’s tribute to Bernd Rosemeyer: the brave German road racer who nearly cracked the 300mph barrier… way back in the 1930s. We also speak to Wolfgang Dürheimer and John Hennessey; two men from different ends of the motoring spectrum, allied by one simple goal - to crack the 300mph road car challenge.
In an effort to prove that motorsport doesn’t have to be expensive, we formed our very own race series, with a TG twist. Ladies and gentlemen, we present the esteemed, not-at-all-just-made-up, TG 300: three teams, three cars and a £300 budget. Cue merciless ribbing, copious amounts of spray paint and countless health and safety violations. (There’s also a little look back over 24 years of TG magazine’s bloopers - when stuff went a bit wrong…)
Plus, we meet the new 592bhp, four-wheel-drive BMW M5 and get the first scoop on Ariel’s monster 1,180bhp, turbine-driven hyper-EV.
And we drive all the cars that matter including: the Westfield Sport 250, four-cylinder Jaguar F-Type, Audi RS3 Sportback, Skoda Octavia vRS 245, Ford Mustang CS800, and Sin R1 550. We also pit Nissan Qashqai against Peugeot 3008, and detail our long-term road tests including the Ariel Nomad, Honda Civic, Skoda Kodiaq, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Ford Mustang.
