Editor's Letter: Engines at the ready for Tempus Magazine's Speed edition with our cover star David Gandy
Tempus editor Rachel Ingram takes us behind the scenes of the new May/June issue
Welcome to the Speed edition of Tempus – our guide to fast cars and fast living. We’re thrilled to have model David Gandy as our cover star this issue. What many people may not know is that, behind the glamour of the modelling world, Gandy is a die-hard classic car enthusiast.
With this in mind, we took a day out at Bicester Heritage where we gave him the keys to a stunning JD Classics Jaguar XK120. Discover what happened next on page 42. We open the issue by delving into the motoring industry with a little help from automotive designer Afzal Khan and Princess Yachts chairman Antony Sheriff, who kicks off our new ‘Leaders’ column with a thought piece on the future of the luxury yachting industry.
We then present the hottest launches and trends of the year, before racing through the world’s best car rallies and motoring events – don’t miss the ‘King of Gumball’ Maximillion Cooper’s craziest moments on page 36 – and delving into the world of classic car investment. >>
As 'Speed' is about more than just motoring, we've also got the latest from the worlds of style, watchmaking, art, dining, travel and property – look out for our guides on where you should be visiting, and investing, this summer.
And as the luxury world shifts to become more focused on philanthropy, we speak with Eva Longoria about how she's turned a charity fundraiser into a global giving phenomenon.
Inspired by initiatives such as this, we’re proud to announce that on 31 May we'll be hosting the first Tempus Earth Conservation Gala, where we’ll also be making some exciting announcements about our upcoming editions. There are still tickets available so please come down and help us support a great cause, the WWF.
Until then, we hope you enjoy the issue,
