about Modern CLassics

 a monthly magazine available internationally in print and digital editions in newsagents and online.

It celebrates the golden age of cars, bringing you the finest motors from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. A time before overly assisted cars, numb handling and fake engine noises. We celebrate everything from hot hatches to supercars, nimble roadsters to bahnstorming super-saloons and luxury GTs to the once-everyday family cars you grew up with. Each month we show you the joy of proper cars, how to buy them and the best ways to enjoy them. 


Each month we pick our Clever Money Car – a great vehicle to drive now, and an even better one to invest in. We show you how to filter the dross when looking for a modern classic in our monthly buying guide. We also show you the latest ups and downs in the market with our guide to what’s hot and what’s not.


We get to the heart of the thrill of old cars by bringing you the best cars from worldwide events, buying the best kit to keep it looking good and driving well, plus bring you insights into our latest projects and show you the best of your fellow readers’ cars. We also bring you insights into cars you’d never get elsewhere.


Unlike other car magazines we tell you what these cars are really like to drive, without fear of repercussions from PR agencies. The best cars on the best roads – what’s not to love?
