Octane Magazine

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2023, Octane has redefined the classic car magazine by revolutionising what both readers and advertisers can expect from a classic motoring title.

It has consciously distanced itself from other magazines in the sector via unparalleled writing, photography and design, and by treating the cars as works of art rather than commodities, and the audience as knowledgeable adults. As well as top-class readers it also boasts motoring A-list contributors, with the likes of Jay Leno, the planet’s most high-profile petrolhead, and Le Mans legend Derek Bell writing monthly for the magazine.

Although there are four licensed editions of Octane – in Japan, Germany, France and The Netherlands – the English-language version is truly global, being bought by more than 30,000 people in 40 countries. It is the number one imported magazine across Barnes & Noble’s entire 700-plus shop North American estate.

Naturally, Octane has a wide range of current and previous brand extensions, from the prestigious Historic Motoring Awards to the annual values bible The Classic Car Price Guide, regular supplements such as Chrono, Great Escapes and Chequered Flag, special one-off titles on Le Mans, Ferrari, Aston Martin and the Jaguar E-type, plus track days and tours.
