First Drive: Aston Martin DB10

Yes, that (itals) Aston Martin. Evo’s Jethro Bovingdon was thrown the key to James Bond’s new company car ahead of its film debut in the new Bond film Spectre. The DB10 may be a one off car for a movie, but this first drive will give you the clearest indication yet as to the future direction of Aston Martin.

Mark Higgins: The Man Who Would Be Bond

As talented as Daniel Craig is in front of a camera, for the behind the wheel action Spectre director Sam Mendes turned to former British rally champion Mark Higgins when he needed the DB10 to be brought to life on screen. Hunter Skipworth sits downs with the Manx man to ask what’s required to be the world’s most famous spy’s stunt driver. 

Porsche 911 Singer

We’ve been fans of Singer’s interpretation of Porsche’s iconic 911 since they first burst out of LA in 2009, and this month’s drive in its latest creation leaves Richard Meaden still in awe of Rob Dickinson and his team’s exceptional talents.

Jaguar Lightweight E Type

Don’t worry, this isn’t another fluffy “isn’t the E type the greatest sports car ever” story, rather it’s a track test of Jaguar’s own 21st Century remake of the ultimate lightweight E. As Jethro Bovingdon discovered, it’s like no other E type that’s gone before and it is all the better for it.

Alfaholics GTA-R 270

222bhp, carbon fibre body panels and £198,000, the Alfaholics GTA-R 270 carries a hefty price tag. But it also delivers a sensational driving experience as Henry Catchpole discovered on the roads of south Wales.

Hot Hatch Track Test

The Renaultsport Megane Trophy-R, Seat Leon Cupra Ultimate Sub8 and Honda Civic Type R have all held the Nürburgring lap record for the fastest front-wheel drive car. But which is quickest when compared on the same day, on the same track and with the same driver? Dan Prosser has the stopwatch.

Big Thrills, Little Bills

Can you really buy a car that will do 200mph for £13,000? Is a used luxury GT really a bargain when it costs just a fraction of its original list price? And how much track day fun can you buy for £20,000? Lock up your debit cards we may have some tempting answers. 

Porsche 981 Boxster Spyder

Think of an Alpine pass and chances are the Stelvio will immediately spring to mind. But what if you combine Porsche’s new Boxster Spyder with Henry Catchpole’s big book of Alpine passes that aren’t the Stelvio? There was only way to find out.

Fast Fleet

It’s hello to our new Focus ST TDCI, some driver training for our Caterham 420R drivers and a mammoth road trip for the Range Rover Sport. Oh, and the GT2 finally gets some new tyres.
