December 2018

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


he December 2018 issue of Modern Classics is here, and this time we’re celebrating the joys of turbocharging. We’ve brought together six of the real boosted heroes of the 80s and early 90s – the Porsche 944 Turbo, Ford Escort RS Turbo, Fiat Uno Turbo, Mitsubishi Starion, MG Maestro Turbo and Daihatsu Charade GT-ti. Elsewhere in the issue we find out if the Prodrive-honed Subaru Impreza P1 really is the best of breed, and put the VW Golf Rallye up against the Ford Sapphire Cosworth 4x4 in a battle for Group A road car honours. Rounding out the turbo theme, we take a look at the Maserati maelstrom of the Biturbo era. If forced induction’s not your thing, don’t worry – we’ve found a high-revving BMW screamer that’s currently undervalued; say hello to the 320si, the undercover M3. PLUS: columns from Jethro Bovingdon and Tiff Needell, market insight from Lewis Kingston and lots more besides.
