The April issue of Modern Classics magazine is here and we’re getting into our stride with a sizzling line up of awesome AMGs for every budget and start dreaming with the ultimate Nissan Skylines, before meeting an absolute hero, the Ford Escort RS Cosworth and resisting temptation with the Porsche 944 Turbo. Now doesn’t that put a Spring in your step?
A SNEaK PEEK INSIDE OUR APRIL ISSUE...
AMG ALLSTARS ★
You can afford a monster Mercedes-Benz – we show you how with 1539bhp worth of Germanic grunt, starring the 190E 2.6, 300CE 3.4, SLK32, E55 and SL60. With options from £8000 and up, there’s an AMG allstar for everyone.
If you thing Nissan Skylines aren’t quick enough, then meet NISMO’s ultimate bad boys. We hit the track in an R33 400R and an R34 R-Tune to see which one delivers the goods. PLUS: we talk to Godzilla’s godfather about how the GTR legend was formed.

PORSCHE 944 TURBO
Finally out of the 911’s shadow, the 944 Turbo is still a bargain – but for how much longer? We show you why Stuttgart’s secret weapon is so scintillating, and how to buy a great example.
We sample one of the last 23 MG Metro Turbos left, show you how to buy the best Vauxhall Astra VXR, tell the story of two BMW 635 CSIs – one a treasured heirloom, the other rescued for £25 from a council lock up – and see platform sharing done well, with Type 4 offerings from Alfa, Lancia, Saab and Fiat, and significantly increase our carbon footprint in Lamborghini’s wild LM002. Plus: the latest audio gear revealed and why you should take a closer eye on BMW Z4s…
