Our 250th issue is on sale now! In it, we test Britain’s most exciting new supercar against three talented rivals


We’ve driven it on snow and at the glamorous launch in Portugal, but now the new Aston Martin Vantage faces its toughest test yet. In our 250th issue, which is on sale today, we dissect the all-new model on the kind of challenging UK roads that can undo even the most sorted supercar, and we also bring along its three main rivals to provide the ultimate context.

We already know much about the new Vantage, about its all-new chassis and its AMG-sourced twin-turbocharged 4-litre V8 engine, but with its elevated level of performance, the Vantage has also attracted a new set of talented rivals from Porsche, Audi and even McLaren. It’s these rivals – themselves each stronger than ever – that make the new Vantage’s life a little more difficult than Aston Martin would like to admit. How did it fare? You’ll find out in our cover story in this month’s issue.

Aston Martin isn’t the only hard-hitting British manufacturer in this issue, as we’ve also had our first taste of Jaguar’s four-door supercar, the 592bhp XE SV Project 8. Constructed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the all-wheel-drive supersaloon looks like it jumped straight off the racetrack, but how does it handle driving on one? Bespoke bodywork wraps over an aggressive set of underpinnings that have been designed and engineered to make the Project 8 as entertaining as anything on four wheels. Does this XE live up to its pumped-up looks? We drive it on road and track to find out.

Also featured in evo 250 is our exposé into the secret world of car development and the lengths that manufacturers go to to ensure your new car can withstand anything you and the open road can throw at it. We also take a look into why, and how, South Korea’s car manufacturers have suddenly become serious players in the performance car arena.

All this and much more is packed into the latest issue, which as always features the highest quality writing and photography from our renowned writers and photographers. Make sure you pop in store and grab your copy today!
