Classic or modern? In the new TopGearSA, under the heading Reinventing the Icons, you don’t need to pick a side – from the Porsche 935 to the C8 Corvette, we’ve covered their backstory and their future mission. The cars that inspired us all those years ago, now reimagined and dare we say, improved in a sort of Greatest Hits reunion. And at the theme’s widest chasm, we even have a go on Harley Davidson’s first electric bike. Our regular Drives section is populated by the fastest Porsche Cayenne on sale with acid green calipers to denote its hybrid configuration, Volvo’s mildly updated XC90 throws up a few surprises as well as the front-wheel drive BMW 1 Series which tries to be both exciting and practical. Pitchforks at the ready? Read our verdict first. We also sample two V8 muscle cars that have just arrived in South Africa from opposite ends of the world and our regular columnists take hilarious aim at the Tesla Army and drivers of large SUVs. Other monthly highlights include the inaugural shakedown test for Aston Martin’s Valkyrie, a run of niche-filling Audis and a 310kW hyperhatch from Mercedes-AMG. We trust you’ll enjoy your monthly motoring read filled with the best international and local content. Thank you for being part of the TopGear family. Andrew Leopold Editor
