We’ve called our cover story ‘Winning Ugly’. How else could you describe the aesthetically challenged Maserati Shamal, Alfa SZ and Lancia Kappa Coupe? But there’s beauty in this trio of beasts, proving that Italian style doesn’t have to be delicate to have major appeal. Forget everything negative you’ve ever heard about the Ferrari 348 and be prepared for a very pleasant surprise – that’s the message as we test two examples of Ferrari’s maligned 348: both road and race. In a world first, we compare two versions of the aerodynamic Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale – a very early ‘750’ and a later ‘101’ – and come away charmed.

Ferrari’s early 1970s four-seat 365 GTC/4 is understated, underrated, rare and great to drive. It’s effectively a Daytona with double the seats but half the price. Lamborghini’s latest Aventador SVJ has fully 770hp of V12 power, clever aero tweaks and a track-focused spec. After driving it, we think it’s the purest Lamborghini you can buy. Is the Fiat Uno Turbo ‘numero uno’? Find out all about this feisty 1980s pocket rocket in our full Buyers’ Guide. Giorgetto Giugiaro is undoubted design royalty: a precociously gifted talent with hundreds of stellar designs to his name. As he turns 80 year old, we interview him about his decisive decades. Lancia’s Aurelia B50 Cabriolet Farina is a poignant reminder, from nearly 70 years ago, of Lancia’s halcyon days Also: Goodwood Revival, Grand Prix Nuvolari, book reviews, readers’ cars, news, events, cars for sale and more.
