This week’s Autocar magazine, dated 25 June, includes a special feature on the amazing new Jaguar F-type Project 7.
A one-off that wowed the crowds at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, it is now about to enter production as a £135k special, and we’ve been granted special access to the car ahead of its official bow in West Sussex this weekend.
The magazine’s news section leads with details and exclusive studio pictures of the new Ford Edge. The Blue Oval’s answer to the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 will go on sale in Europe in around a year’s time, and we’ve got the most up-to-date information on how the SUV is shaping up.
The magnificent Ferrari 458 Speciale is the highlight of this week’s first drives section. Maranello has dumped the excess baggage and turned up the wick on its V8 supercar, but has it made it a true great?
This issue also includes a six-page preview to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which begins tomorrow at the West Sussex country house.
Elsewhere in this issue, we scrutinise the Citroën C4 Cactus. It is a very different, very new kind of Citroën, where a back-to-basics feel meets useful tech and extreme comfort. Steve Cropley finds out if it works.
Our eight-page road test assesses the Subaru WRX STI. After a long time in a wilderness of exchange rate-induced irrelevance, the hot Scooby is back – and at a price that demands the sort of full appraisal that only an Autocar road test can provide.
We welcome the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV onto our long-term test fleet. Does this disarmingly everyday plug-in hybrid present a real-world alternative to a regular diesel SUV? We’re going to spend the next few months finding out.
Our in-depth used buying guide offers hints and tips for acquiring a second-hand Rover 220 Turbo coupé. An attractive car with plenty of muscle; used examples can be found for as little as £500.
