A letter from the editor Ben Miller

In these difficult and worrying times, I want you to know that you can rely on CAR to keep on providing our usual top-quality coverage of the automotive world.

So although various new-car launches have been delayed, and the sporting calendar has been paused, we’re busy working on the usual great mix of reviews, interviews, adventures and analysis.

We’ll continue to publish CAR every month in print and digital forms.

There will be fresh content daily on the website, including news about the effect of coronavirus on the car world. And perhaps if you’ve found some extra time on your hands, this would be a great opportunity to catch up on some archive gems from legendary contributors including LJK Setright, James May and Nigel Roebuck, or enjoy re-reading columns from Gavin Green and Mark Walton.
