We are celebrating 50 years of great classic cars and we have been able to bring a whole bunch of cars that simply demand to be included in any comprehensive guide to classic car values. The vast majority of classics have continued to grow steadily, but there are still some bargains to be found and this guide will help you spot your next purchase. Enjoy seeing how your classic is still rising in value and if it inspires you to start planning your next purchase, then our work is done.
As Land Rover celebrates its 65th birthday, the company couldn’t be in better shape and the future is looking stronger than ever. To celebrate the great achievements of this great British brand, we’ve created this collectors' MagBook – it’s for anyone with a love of Land Rovers. Every model is covered in great detail, with lavish photography – there’s even a timeline of every Land Rover to be launched over the past 65 years.
The Limited Edition Leather Copy
Zoom is a unique concept that has never been done before in F1 or in any other sport. It brings new insight into the world of F1 through a collection of photographs taken by celebrated names from the sport. The drivers and team principals of every F1 team were asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject and those images were auctioned by Coys in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
The diverse group of photos provides an amazing insight into the world of F1. Who would have thought that a picture of a rusty old tractor would be close to the heart of Adrian Newey, a man who is famous for the sleek high-tech cars he designs? Likewise, Russian driver Vitaly Petrov's photo of a giant earth-mover came as a surprise, as did the two statues taken by Bernie Ecclestone and Sebastian Vettel's mountain vista.

Logic says that the supercar’s days should be numbered, that we’re all just waiting for the economic or ecological asteroid that will consign these dinosaurs to automotive history. Thing is, supercars have never made much logical sense. And as long as there are wealthy enthusiasts to buy them, it seems there will be brilliant engineers striving to ensure that these fabulous machines make the evolutionary leaps required to continue their survival. So we have Ferrari paring back the size and weight of its front-engined flagship to create the stunning new F12 Berlinetta, Pagani adopting turbochargers to improve the efficiency of its breathtaking Huayra, and Porsche and Jaguar developing hybrid powertrains for their forthcoming hypercars. And with McLaren readying the true successor to the F1, Planet Supercar has never looked a better place to be.
Could there be a better time to celebrate the very best of British? When we planned this special collection of features, I don’t think any of us imagined the wave of positive emotion that was about to sweep the nation in the summer of 2012.
Of course, those of us who love the many and varied classic and performance cars produced in these islands have long celebrated the qualities of these wonderful machines. But it’s good to remind ourselves of the richness and sheer diversity of this wonderful heritage. From the giant-killing Mini-Cooper to the mighty Rolls-Royce Phantom; from the brawny Austin-Healey to the beguiling E-type, there’s a breadth and a depth here that defies any lazy national stereotyping.
Through words and pictures, we’ve tried to capture the essence of each marquee, whether it’s the eccentricity of Bristol, the blood and thunder of TVR or the effortless cool of Aston Martin. You’ll also be able to read a revealing interview with a living British legend, Sir Stirling Moss, and count sown our Brit 60 of all the other great things we love about this nation. Enjoy!
