Issue Cover

BBC Top Gear Magazine  |  Top Gear 233  


In the August 2012 issue:
- CLS shooting brake - a saloon made into a coupe made into a shooting brake. Which leaves us with...an estate. A swoopy one
- GT86 GRMN - Toyota removes the vowels from a German. Not to be confused with the TRD version, from which absolutely no vowels have escaped
- In the loop - TopGear attempts world using nothing but two giant hoops, a flimsy buggy and some actual physics. Stand well back
- Pinifarina obituary - we say farewell to the man behind some of the prettiest cars ever made. Thank you, Sergio
- F1 sharks - artist crosses F1 cars with angry fish. It's a metaphor for something. Not sure what

Classic magazine

Best in class Reviewed June 20, 2022

Well worth the time

Excellent journalism Reviewed June 10, 2022

Some issues are good, others are more vanity than substance

I have been reading Top Gear since issue 1 and in the early days it was really informative, now it's more about having fun, which I don't have a problem with. It's just not as informative as it used to be. Reviewed April 29, 2022

Great quality

Great magazine which accompanies the television series Reviewed April 19, 2022
