AMG GT mega test
We pit Jethro Bovingdon’s pick of the bunch, the AMG GT S, against its toughest rivals. Representing four very different takes on the sports car are the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 Turbo and BMW i8. Can Merc’s latest arrival remain evo’s favourite on familiar UK ground?
Henry Catchpole slips, slides and jumps his way along B-roads in Ariel’s cross-country racer. The Nomad might be well suited to getting muddy, but its simple, focused approach means it should posses all the right ingredients to provide us with a slightly less familiar take on the Thrill of Driving. That being said, Henry’s a keen rally driver, so will he bond with the bonkers new Ariel?
Ginetta’s Lawrence Tomlinson
The man behind Yorkshire’s famous racing and sports car maker talks exclusively to Henry Catchpole about his unexpected win at Le Mans, his near-purchase of TVR and why the G40 borrows dimensions from the F430, Corvette and 911…
Bentley Continental GT3
With its deep burbling V8 that coughs and splutters through the pits, its blinking yellow eyes and mammoth dimensions, the Bentley Continental GT3 is probably the most demonic creation to ever grace a modern GT3 grid. Jethro Bovingdon becomes a Bentley Boy as he attempts to tame the beast and its road going equivalent, the GT3-R, at the picturesque Anglesey circuit.
Want performance without the worry of fast-growing costs? We provide an in-depth guide of drivers’ cars still accompanied by manufacturer warranties. From hot Twingos to an AMG Black Series, there’s a warranty-covered car for almost everyone.
EK9 Civic Type R
Dickie Meaden samples a modern classic, the EK9 Type R. With its screaming VTEC engine and adjustable chassis, this Championship White EK9 reminds Meaden of what makes Japanese hot hatches so good. The new turbocharged car certainly has a lot to live up to.
Cars tested in evo 210 are the Audi RS3 Sportback, Vauxhall Corsa VXR, VW Golf R estate, Jaguar XE S, Bentley Mulsanne Speed, Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS and Renault Megane 220 GT Coupe.
