“Life's too short to drive boring cars”
If you are into exciting, interesting cars and follow the mainstream media you’d be forgiven for thinking we’re at the end of days. The internal combustion engine is in its twilight years, and most new cars appear to be SUVs. It might seem like we’re all being forced into boring automotive washing machines.
You and I, of course, know different. It’s just that the very best, most exciting, most captivating cars have already been built. Few new cars offer the visceral thrills the cars of the 80s, 90s and 00s have in abundance. Those 30 years contain some of the greatest cars ever to roll out of the factory gates, breeding a passion that knows no bounds, no borders and, increasingly, no set defined age limit when it comes to the petrolhead passion. This was truly the era that cars came of age – innovative design, ever-improving dynamics and a tangible connection to the road, felt through the steering wheel, pedals, gearbox and engine. Modern cars may well be faster, quieter and more efficient, but few really make you feel part of the action.More about us

“Life’s too short to drive boring cars”
Strada Magazine is a fresh, new quarterly take on an era of cars that has come to dominate the classic car landscape. Call them Youngtimers, call them modern classics, the cars produced between 1980 and 2010 contain among them true icons that transcend generations. From the Ferrari 550 Maranello to the Peugeot 205 GTI, this era of cars drives a passion that burns bright even for those whose driving test was a mere pipe dream formed on the living room carpet with toys or via computer games when these cars were new. Now these cars are highly sought after – and Strada magazine is here to reflect that passion.
Our crack team of photographers and journalists live and breathe these cars just as much as the people who own, buy and collect them. It’s this level of insight that gives us the edge over traditional classic car magazines – our focus on this key era allows us to single out the greatest stories, and give them life in a way few can come close to matching.
“Cars as great as these deserve a magazine dedicated to celebrating them”
