evo Magazine Car of the Year issue 2014

It's Car of the Year time again, and we pit Ferrari Enzo versus Ferrari LaFerrari in the latest issue

evo Car of the Year 2014 - in association with Michelin

Ten of the best cars we’ve driven in 2014 gather on some of the best roads the border counties have to offer. There are hot hatchbacks, sports cars, GTs, supercars and even a hybrid. It might be the most talented eCoty group we’ve ever assembled, but as ever (except 2012...), only one car can win. This is what evo is all about.

Enzo v LaFerrari

The Ferrari named after the company’s founder goes up against the Ferrari named after the company itself. Richard Meaden decides which of Maranello’s two most recent flagship supercars is better.

Super-estates group test

The hills are alive with the sound of… erm, humongous burnouts. Dan Prosser takes the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Estate to Wales.

Di Montezemolo’s final press call

Meaden muses the pros and overwhelming cons of magazine project cars, Porter falls for an awful American SUV’s V8 and Dario talks racing in the rain.


How many exhaust pipes is too many? One reader berates the Audi S1’s excess pipeage. Plus, the new Ford Mustang is this month’s Talking Point.

Long-Term tests

Dean Smith says hello to his new Skoda Octavia vRS long-termer, but asks where the rest of it is. The Secret Supercar Owner buys another McLaren, and Nick Trott gets his 911 back – but might have to remortgage.

evo Knowledge

We show you how to buy the thundering Lexus IS F, watch the prices of Alfa 4Cs rise, tempt you with the latest gifts and try out some hot products.

Art of Speed

Only Renault could turn a mild-mannered shopping car into a lewd, mid-engined V6 monster. Its body kit is this month’s star design.
