1986 is best remembered for the Chernobyl disaster and Maradonna’s ‘Hand of God’. At the cinema, Top Gun was the year’s highest grossing film, while the biggest single was Falco’s Rock Me Amadeus.

A vintage year it was not (fortunately, I was only two years old, so I had no idea). That was largely true in the car world, too, but there were still a number of significant launches. This was, after all, the year that gave us the legendary BMW M3 and iconic Ford Sierra Cosworth. And the Porsche 959, still one of the greatest supercars there has ever been.
