evo Magazine February 2015 - McLaren F1 v McLaren P1

McLaren P1 takes on the legendary F1, Camaro Z/28 driven, evo Track Car of the year, Porsche Macan S takes on rivals, all in evo 205

McLaren P1 v F1

Two seminal supercars, two days in the south of France, one verdict. More than 20 years since it ripped the road car rulebook to pieces, how much of the McLaren F1's residual purity exists in the ferociously complex P1? Richard Meaden has the onerous task of finding out.

Abarth 595 Biposto

Fiat's humble 500 undergoes its most severe transmogrification yet. Does copious carbonfibre and titanium and a dog 'box justify its stratospheric price tag? Henry Catchpole travels to Varano in Italy to pass judgement.

Camaro Z/28

Reports suggest that America has built its first true Porsche GT3 RS rival, and on the spec sheet Chevy's 2015 Camaro Z/28 looks every inch the track demon. Jethro Bovingdon visits the City of Angels to confirm the stories.

Fast crossovers - who doesn't love 'em? Well, we at evo weren't convinced, so we sent Bovingdon to group test the best offerings out there, with a surprise winner...

Tuthill GT3 R-GT

Rallying stands on the cusp of an exciting new super-based era. Catchpole meets the man leading the revolution and drives an extraordinary Porsche 911 GT3.
