News
The future’s looking bright for Aston Martin, but it’s less rosy for the Jaguar C-X75 hypercar and sporty Subarus
 
Columns
Porter reckons we should all drive Aston Rapides, while Metcalfe insists we should all be in Range Rovers. Needell is too busy gloating about his F1 predictions
 
First drives
The Aston Martin V12 Zagato, all-new Maserati Quattroporte, Volvo S60 Polestar and manual-transmission BMW M5 are among the month’s first drives
 
Letters
You’re a bossy bunch this month, telling Aston what they should do, Caterham what they shouldn’t and us lot what to write
 
One-77 driven
We’ve been waiting a long time for this. Finally we’re putting Aston Martin’s £1.2million hypercar to the test, with two full days’ driving in the UK, including a visit to some of our favourite Welsh roads. Is it as talented, desirable and intoxicating as a Pagani Huayra?
 
V12 Aston buying guide
However lovely the One-77 may be, it’ll set you back a seven-figure sum – and it’s sold out anyway. The good news is that there are plenty of other V12 Aston Martins to choose from, and you can bag one for as little as £30,000
 
BMW M3 CRT driven
The last of the current-generation M3s could be the very best. With the engine from the hardcore GTS, the better handling four-door chassis and a host of new carbon technology, is the CRT saloon the best of its breed?
 
The last Integrale
You probably know the Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 1 and 2, but what about the 3? With 237bhp and an interesting colour scheme, this unique ’Grale is the end product of an interesting tale
 
Final fling
Four evo heroes are not long for replacement – or culling altogether. We take the Renault Clio 200 Cup, Porsche 997 GT3, Subaru WRX STI and V8-powered BMW M3 for a final fling in – where else? – Wales
 
Porsche pilgrimage
The new 911 Carrera 4S is Porsche’s latest all-wheel-drive sports car. We suss it out via an Austrian road trip to discover more about its little-known, but really rather special ancestor
 
Winter tyre test
How much better is cold-weather rubber when the roads are white and slippery? And which tyres should you invest in to keep you moving this winter?
 
Long-term tests
Guess what Harry’s bought? Three clues - it’s Italian, wears a four-leafed clover badge and makes a very interesting noise…
 
evo knowledge
Now that Sebastien Loeb is swapping rallying for watching Cash in the Attic, who’s going to slide and jump their way to WRC glory? Our 2013 preview reveals all
 
Fantasy garage
Find a rally icon, a mile-munching GT car and a trackday toy on a budget of £25k
 
Me and my car
The muscle car restorer with a lesser-spotted Shelby GT
