The fourth episode of The Classic Car Show airs tonight on Channel 5 at 7pm and this evening’s programme is packed to the rafters, featuring high octane action from the Monaco Historique, a hot lap in a brutal V8 muscle car plus the low-down on a bargain Porsche – and lots else besides.

Kicking things off, Quentin Willson celebrates one of the most successful and iconic cars ever made by a British manufacturer – the Range Rover. The original SUV, it’s a status symbol that was so far ahead of its time when it was first launched way back in 1970, its rivals took decades to catch up.

Like the Range Rover, Citroen’s original DS is another symbol of its era – so what better car to cruise to Monte Carlo in than the super rare Décapotable version? Quentin and Jodie Kidd certainly arrive in style at the Monaco Grand Prix Historique, where Jodie meets up with racing legend Sir Stirling Moss OBE and follows the fortunes of an American surgeon competing in his 1964 Brabham BT11 Formula 1 car at the famous street circuit. From qualifying to the race itself, it’s a real rollercoaster weekend.

Meanwhile, Alex Riley looks at a classic that’s more affordable than you might think – the Porsche 928. From launch in 1978, it baffled purists with its front mounted, water-cooled 4.5-litre V8 engine and designs on replacing the legendary 911, but it’s aged gracefully and remains undervalued next to the car that eventually outlived it. As a result, you can pick one up for the price of a used Ford Focus.

Finally, our resident race ace and current McLaren GT driver, Bruno Senna, has his hands completely full as he hits the track in a muscle-bound V8-engined 1965 Ford Mustang. With 350bhp it’s got the pace on the straights, but can it manage the corners? Tune in tonight to find out.
