Classic Cars August 2022

Inside the August issue we pick five great buys that achieve the delicate balancing act between entertaining dynamics and four-seater practicality, and interview a car dealer about the tricks of selling family saloons new across five decades. We drive one of the first 54 E-types sold (the examples that famously posed for a photo opportunity outside the factory in July 1961), brave a Turner-Ardun V8 and put a reader in his dream Ferrari 456GT for the day.
 
Two human stories stand out this month. There’s the new-to-now tale of the prototype Lynx Eventer told by the people who knew it, including a rock star or two. And there’s the Lotus 7 that spent most of its life with a car designer before being laid up for decades and brought back to period perfection by a dedicated band of restorers.
 
All that, plus our ever-entertaining columnists Quentin Willson and John Fitzpatrick, market news and event highlights, the monthly highs and lows of our own classics, four cars for sale tested and more, make the August issue unmissable.
