Classic Cars May issue on sale now

Classic Cars magazine celebrates 40 years of the BMW 3.0 CSL and Batmobile in its latest issue with a seven-page twin test photographed by James Lipman and a four-page archive picture special of CSL motor sport action between 1973 and 1976.

We also test one of four surviving Cisitalia Voloradentes, the sports car-defining MG Midget J2, an Australian Ford Falcon 351 XB GT and an Alfa Giulia Super. A Jensen is subjected to a weekend-long test to see what it’s really like to live with and we tackle the French Alpine roads in a Vauxhall Chevette HS.

There’s fresh insight on Eighties Aston Martin savior Victor Gauntlett, the definitive guide to buying a Mercedes ‘Fintail’ W111 and all the latest news on events, the market and motor sports, plus thought-provoking columns from Quentin Willson, Simon Kidston and Martin Gurdon in the May issue, on sale now.
