Octane – Issue 199 – Jan 20
Inside this issue of Octane:
Bargain supercars! Yours from £35,000 – yet the Aston Martin DB9 and Audi R8 are two of the most desirable and iconic petrolhead performance cars of all time. John Simister compares them, in ultra-rare early manual spec.
- Exclusive track test of the ex-Askolin/Monteverdi 1959 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, specially engineered and bodied in-period by Scuderia Claude Et Georges Gachnang Aigle, now fresh from restoration.
- Alfa Romeo Giuliettas: saloons, coupés and ultra-rare coachbuilt specials. Massimo Delbò has gathered the full set for a unique comparison.
- Rolls-Royce Phantom IIs, one completely original, the other fresh from restoration, and one with royal connections, the other once the property of record-breaker Donald Campbell.
