Evo magazine is the British magazine dedicated to performance cars, from hot hatches to supercars.
Going by the tag-line 'The thrill of driving', Evo magazine attempts to immerse the reader in the driving experience of any particular car, and all other aspects are considered secondary to this all emotive 'drive'. While hard data is accumulated in the form of lap-times (for which Evo regularly uses Bedford Autodrome), cornering speeds, and straight-line performance figures, the subjective nature of the driving experience is the paramount factor by which cars are graded by Evo.
Many prominent members of the automotive industry have made contributions to Evo, including Gordon Murray, Jeff Daniels, and occasionally Rowan Atkinson. Other contributors are Peter Dron, John Simister, Ian Fraser, Martin Buckley, David Yu, Tony Bailey, Paul Bailey, Simon George and Richard Porter.

Evo Magazine Main Cover Story - 2009'S BIGGEST TESTS New cars. Lovely, aren't they? But how do they compare with the current class champions? That's the question you always want answered, so that's why we've arranged head-to-head tests for the quartet of significant drivers' cars that arrive this month. The much anticipated 300bhp Focus RS squares up to the stripped-for-action Megane R26.R, the warbling V10-engined Audi R8 meets its mechanically very similar cousin, the Lamborghini LP560-4, the frisky Abarth 500 meets the car it wants to be (at least in sales terms), the pesky Mini Cooper S, and Jaguar's new 500bhp XFR meets the guvnor of supersaloon-dom, the M5, in a nocturnal showdown
Evo Feature - Red-hot hatches Impressed that the Focus RS has 300bhp? Don't be. We've found four hatches with more - much more. How about an Astra VXR with 420bhp? Ollie Marriage braces for torque steer
