evo 266 – on sale now!

In this month's issue, we put the new Ferrari F8 Tributo to the test, head to the Alps to revisit the 996 GT3 and much more

New Ferraris never used to come around this often but the company is a very different beast today compared to a decade or two ago. Not that we’re complaining, because it meant this month John Barker was handed the keys to the new F8 Tributo.

With its Pista levels of performance and chassis upgrades that polish out the rough edges of the 488 GTB, Ferrari’s latest mid-engined V8 is back to its best.

Twenty years ago Richard Meaden returned to the evo office having driven Porsche’s very first 911 GT3 with a knowing grin that he had driven something very special. The following two decades have seen the GT3 establish itself as one of the greatest performance cars of a generation and this month we dispatched Dickie to the Swiss Alps in an original 996 GT3 to celebrate this remarkable piece of automotive history.

But how long will we be able to enjoy performance cars with manual gearboxes, naturally aspirated engines and rear-wheel-drive layouts? It’s a question Adam Towler sets out to answer while enjoying a trio of today’s performance cars on the endangered species list.

We’ve also got behind the wheel of Renault Sport’s Mégane Trophy-R on road and track, examined the pros and cons of running a used BMW M3 and visited a father and son team who single-handedly keep the fastest Jaguars ever produced alive and kicking.

What else can you expect to find in the new issue of evo? We’ve driven the new Porsche 911 Carrera and Audi S4, welcomed a pair of hot hatches to the evo Fast Fleet and driven Bentley’s Continental GT3 race car.
