Two British sports cars, both from the late 1990s and each with a V8 engine. But are there are any more similarities between the TVR Cerbera and Lotus Esprit than the very basics? Emma Woodcock drove them back to back to find out.
Can you see yourself doing the daily commute in a single-seat EV? Canadian manufacturer ElectraMeccanica wants us to, and is currently testing the water to enter the European market. Adam Wilkins got the first drive… and we’re the only UK magazine to have driven it to date. Full story in Issue 5.
The Gilbern T11 was the Welsh car-maker’s vision for a mid-engined sports car to sit alongside its Genie and Invader models. Sadly it never reached production, but the sole surviving prototype has been restored and put on the road. We found out how from the man who did the work.
In a parallel universe, Tatra could have been swallowed up by Volkswagen and sentenced to an existence building cars on the MQB platform. We’re glad it wasn’t, as Rich Duisberg explains.
Chris Lawrence had a hugely diverse career in the motorsport arena, and was responsible for many a racing Morgan. Richard Heseltine tells the story of a man who refused to be pigeonholed.
The Triumph Fury is a story of what might have been – and because it didn’t go into production, this one-off survivor falls well within the remit of Alternative Cars.
