August 2018

Want a sneek peak of the August issue? Here's a few highlights:



he August issue of Modern Classics magazine is out now. Inside Jethro Bovingdon helps us celebrate 25 years of hero RenaultSport from to 200 Cup, before we go back to the Eighties with the Renault 5 GT Turbo. As motorsport returns to the UK's city streets at MotoFest Coventry we not only cover the event, but go back to the scene of the Birmingham Superprix with a Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth and a BMW M3 Sport Evolution to settle old scores. Then we go from California to Boston in a Shelby GT500, before showing why buying a Jaguar XJ X350 makes more sense than a terrible PCP deal. And if you want to buy a Subaru Forester, read our buying guide first.  PLUS: Jethro on BMWs, Tiff on the RS500 and the Superprix, Keith on the RenaultSport Megane and Lewis Kingston on why now's the time to buy a Fiat Barchetta.

Return of Superprix

After a 30-year break, road racing has returned to the West Midlands. To mark the occasion we take two 1980s BTCC rivals back to re-live the wild days of the Superprix
