The March issue of Modern Classics is here and with it comes the settling of some old scores as the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evo are pitted against each other in all-out war. We also explore the best of drop-top ‘80s hatches, the investment potential in the Jaguar XKR and put the Porsche 930 up against its old Blackpool rival, the TVR 420SE.
Here's a taster of what you can expect to read inside the March issue of Modern Classics....
EVO VS IMPREZA
The old rally car rivalry is revived for our mega 21-page shootout. We take the best limited editions, homologation specials and standard road tuned versions of these iconic four-door performance legends, and find out which gets our vote as today’s best modern classic.
The X100 Jaguar XK8/R is seen as the spiritual successor to the E-type. It’s a performance Jaguar that can tackle a circuit as easily as it can a continent. The pace of the XKR in particular is breath taking with a 375bhp supercharged V8 it’s little surprise! But the big shock is that this package could be yours for just £10k…
Hot hatch convertibles
We love our ‘80s hot hatches here at Modern Classics and yet we’ve never given the soft-top versions a look in… until now. They might not have the same driving dynamics as their tin-top cousins but once the sun comes out and you’re flinging down a B-road with the wind in your hair, you won’t care!
Fiat uno turbo
When did you last see a Fiat Uno, especially a Turbocharged one? No, we can’t remember either so thought it was about time we found one. This tale of an enthusiast’s dedication to bringing his Uno back from the brink is an inspiration. The result? One of the best Uno Turbos in existence and another one saved from the crusher.
