Default Evo magazine #97 twice the RUF@ring



Planet evo
Is Planet evo really a planet or just a dwarf planet? Anyway, Alfa Romeo’s gorgeous 8C is going into limited production, the windy VW is back and we launch our search for the greatest drivers’ cars ever

Driven
Bentley Continental GTC, Audi S3, Peugeot 207 GT Turbo, Suzuki Swift Sport, Audi TT 2.0T, Mitsubishi Evo IX FQ-360, VW Golf GT turbodiesel, Mercedes-Benz CLK500, Toniq-R, Mercedes-Benz CL600,

Letters
Henry Catchpole looks just like Louis Theroux, apparently. Also this month: our get-of-jail-free card is revealed, a driving instructor offers some tips, and a completely unbiased Ferrari owner is incensed that we prefer Gallardo Spyder to F430 Spider

Lotus Europa S
The new, liveable, manageable, housetrained Lotus is finally here. Is it as easy and comfortable to sit in as a sofa? And if so, does it now drive like a three-piece suite from DFS? Richard Meaden fights his way out of Luxembourg and then tells all

Aston V8 Vantage N24
Not satisfied with giving the 911 Carrera something to think about, Aston is now going after the GT3 RS. Dr Bez talks to Harry Metcalfe about the Ring-inspired N24 and what the future holds for Aston

Shelby GT500 Mustang vs Superformance Coupe
If we’d gone to Salisbury for this feature, we could have called it ‘Snakes on a Plain’. Unfortunately we were in Wales by the time it occurred to us

Cayman S v Z4 M Coupe v 350Z GT-S
In issue 091 a Z4 M Roadster caused an upset by beating a Boxster S. Now the Cayman S is here to restore Porsche honour. But could a supercharged 350Z upset the group test applecart?

Rufs at the Ring
The near-650bhp Rt 12 would be a monster on the Bonneville Salt Flats. We drove it on the Nordschleife. We also had a go in Ruf’s iconic CTR ‘Yellow Bird’ and gained even greater respect for a certain German in white socks and loafers

Ed to Ed
It lives! Spurred into action by the sight of editor-at-large Meaden buying a 964 RS (and even washing it!), motoring editor Barker finally gets his V8 Capri up and running

Lamborghini Gallardo Buying Guide
You can now buy a used Gallardo for the price of a new 911. If you fancy passing on a super-coupe for a supercar, Roger Green has some pointers

evo Sport
Two Moslers, Snetterton, thunderclouds and a minor kerfuffle about insurance. I’m sure it’ll all turn out just fine…

Long-term tests
Carey sheds a small tear at the thought of the depreciation on his 130i, Metcalfe takes his Zonda to a memorable trackday at Spa, and Lee reveals why he carries a pink blanket in the back of the Skoda

Subscriptions
Patient: Doctor! Doctor! I missed last month’s evo magazine!
Doctor: Tough.
Subscribe. It’s no joke

The Knowledge
We promised a test, so here it is. Add the number of Ariels to the number of current Elises, multiply by a Deronda and subtract the first number you thought of. What time did Henry arrive at Bedford?

Birth of an Icon
Back in 1965, a former chicken farmer transformed Ford’s new must-have lifestyle automobile into an iconic American performance car. Ian Eveleigh (ponytail wearer of the year, 2003) takes a look back at the original Shelby Mustang

Interesting that AM V8 N24... setting it's sights on the GT3 RS is quite the task!

But the greatest news is that the barker capri is running pretty good now
And it needs some work to get it ready for some track action.

Awe... they only got to drive the "near 650bhp" version...

We (at Zero to 60) got to drive the 725bhp version

Oh... and just so you know... it is a monster on top end..

Actually it is less of a comparison, more like double article. That yellowbird is just immaculate. 1150kg and that engine <3 <3

That Aston article is really great read too, too bad it will be pretty rare.

You should also check those places mentioned in the Barkers capri @ed vs ed-article, there are some pretty fine Porsches on those showrooms, like the 996gt2 rs, and many more rs and gt3 porsches.

The ruf article is also good.
I wonder wath sort of laptime the ctr will do on the ring.
But also love the shelby gt500 vs the superformance coupe article the shelby got his ass kicked by the superformance coupe.
