Classic Cars August 2021

Inside the August issue you’ll find our Mercedes SL R107 50th anniversary special section including the life story of a 280SL from El Salvador to Michigan, the epic restoration of a 420SL abandoned project and the highlights of the SL’s 18-year career, from small- and big-screen stardom to a motor sport near miss.

June means Le Mans, so we drive the Jaguar D-type that topped the podium in 1957. We also put one lucky reader in his bucket-list Lamborghini Urraco for the day, interview Malcolm Bricklin about creating the brave gullwinged SV-1 and drive a rare UK-based example. Quentin Willson tips the latest clever buys and answers your most pressing questions and we show how to buy a cool Ford Cortina MkII the easy way.

All that, plus more market news and events highlights, the monthly highs and lows of our own classics, four cars for sale tested and more, make the August issue unmissable.
