Default evo Issue 101


Issue 101
Have we taken it easy for the New Year? No chance. There's world exclusive TVR Typhoon pictures, we drive the open-top Lamborghini LP640, test the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, find evo thrills for under £10K, and work out how they crashed 007's DBS. On sale now.

10th January 2007

Planet evo
We’ve got world exclusive pictures of the new TVR – well, until everyone else gets them. Jaguar has also shown us its new C-XF concept and Vauxhall’s revealed the natty-looking Corsa VXR

Driven
Lamborghini LP640 Roadster, Aston V8 Vantage Sportshift, Renault Mégane GT, Lingenfelter Corvette Z06, Audi TT Roadster, Porsche Boxster S

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano road test
Most people just send us a car. Ferrari sent us a car, a genuine collaudatore (that’s Italian for test driver), several sets of tyres and an entire pit crew. Like we wouldn’t have been impressed anyway…


…and a pair of unusual alternatives
If you’re the sort of person who likes The Rocky Horror Picture Show then you’ll probably appreciate a couple of Ferrari 599 alternatives. Flying tonight we have the Bristol Fighter and the Spyker C8 Laviolette

Panda 100HP
It may only have the (ahem) bear necessities, but the new Panda 100HP is still a real midget gem. Speaking of which… Richard Meaden takes the Panda to Wales and introduces it to the legend of Abarth

£10K heroes
Think a true evo car is out of your reach? Well we prove otherwise by gathering together seven magnificent examples of motoring heaven on Exmoor, and each of them can be bought for less than a set of Ferrari carbon ceramic brakes

Bond’s DBS
Seen the new Bond movie yet? You really should (that’s the evo verdict). At one point they crash a new Aston DBS – here Richard Porter reveals how it was done. Plus we’ve unearthed a few secrets about this Vanquish replacement

Prodrive Aston V8 Vantage development
Not many theatre critics would look much cop playing Hamlet (although some might make a decent Yorick), so it’s with some trepidation that Richard Meaden goes along to help set up a new Aston Martin V8 Vantage variant

Letters
The Mini has the Thunderbirds script on its speedo, apparently. And it seems you rather enjoyed all the malarkey in our 100th issue

Subscriptions
So you didn’t get the evo subscription you wanted for Christmas? Well, treat yourself instead of that gym membership. You’ll never use it anyway

The Knowledge
The usual rash of deliberate mistakes, the odd bit of out-of-date information, all mixed up in a light, digestible listings format. We’re taking collective responsibility for this in 2007, so every one of us urges you to send corrections to henryc@evo.co.uk

Birth of an Icon: Ferrari Daytona
Actually it was never officially called the Daytona but the 365 GTB/4. The reason? Enzo got all stroppy that the press had announced the name Daytona before he’d said they could

-- the 599 road test is definitely something to look forward to!

That new tvr is quite wild, 1100kg, carbonfiber body and 4litre Ricardo engine, delivering 600hp.

19" alloys, sat nav and usable backseats, still shorter overall than tuscan. only 60 will be built 2006, 120k£ a pop. Gallardo, F430 and Db9 are in the same price range, but i guess there is still some BA_NG for buck

built year should be 2007 of course..

What are the odds the 599 is tested with those "no-name" P Zero tyres and is probably a ringer while they're at it.
