The final ICE Lotus is out now, but as the Hethel marque moves into greater volumes with EV SUVs, is this also the last Alternative Car in its 75-year history? Richard Heseltine drove it to find out.
Another last of its kind! The Sagaris was the final car to come from TVR’s Blackpool factory, and it still holds up as a brutal sports car in 2023. But is it as fearsome as it looks? Emma Woodcock took the wheel to find out.
You could fill a book with Mini-based kit cars, and in fact it has been done over several volumes. But not all of them are credible. The GTM Coupé is different – and we chart the rise of a 1966 car that kick-started a marque that went on to thrive in the 1980s and ’90s.
The 24 Hours of Lemons is unlike any other form of racing, and Rich Duisberg flew to the States to take part. OK, he did it in a very un-alternative Miata (aka Mazda MX-5), but as events go it’s more than a little left-field.
You might think of Panther Westwinds as being just a manufacturer of traditional roadsters, but the company did a lot more than that. What’s more, the Surrey firm employed craftsmen to create a very high quality output. Richard Heseltine tells the company’s story.
We know that not all Alternative Cars go down in history for the right reasons, but there are many fascinating cars among those that failed to make an impact. In every issue, we delve into the archive to tell those stories.
Thinking of buying a Morgan 3 Wheeler? You’ll need our buyers’ guide before taking the plunge to make sure you bag a good one.
