All Black Captain and Prime Minister. Without doubt the two toughest jobs in New Zealand.

Of course, there are plenty of upsides to both positions. But they also share a hefty amount of scrapping in the mud and of being under intense public scrutiny.

In addition to featuring some of the legendary moments and models that have helped shape Bentley through the decades, we’re also in Spain to experience the brand new Continental GT convertible.

We also meet a passionate Kiwi who has owned no less than 20 Bentleys over the years: Richard Izard. The man behind one of New Zealand’s great manufacturing successes, he shares some of his career adventures including a stint behind the Iron Curtain and his brief time as a factory-sponsored racing driver.

ISSUE 004 - SUMMER 2018

You will often hear the automotive or motorsport worlds referred to as cut-throat, but I’d hazard to guess that the fashion world would give both a run for their money. Despite this, Karen Walker has remained not just relevant, but at the cutting edge for three decades. She shares her story with us this month, from the first creations she made on her Mum’s Bernina sewing machine to an influential fashion label which is now present in 42 countries globally.

Speaking of impressive tenures, we mark the conclusion of Porsche’s 70th year with a special in-studio photoshoot. Elsewhere, the track-focused 600LT has a starring role in something of a McLaren trifecta this month, alongside the two newest creations from Woking; the McLaren Senna and Speedtail.

There are few better feelings than watching a Kiwi win big on the international stage. Over the past decade and a half, Scott Dixon has created more smiles than any other driver. Seeing him win his fifth IndyCar title at Sonoma was made even more special because of our involvement in Born Racer, the movie which takes us behind the scenes to see what it takes to be one of the best racers on the planet.

Also in this issue, we have a different kind of behind-the-scenes excursion starting on page 60, as we tour Bentley’s manufacturing operation at Crewe in the UK. This is where some of the world’s most impressive bespoke automobiles are created, with a level of hand-crafted dedication that is second-to-none.

Naturally John Kirwan was a rugby hero to many growing up, but the work he does today – both in the wider community and as the Giltrap Group’s Wellness Ambassador – means that JK continues to get plenty of points on the board.JK is the first to admit that he doesn’t always win, and he spoke candidly to 66 about the personal toll his turbulent time as the Auckland Blues coach took on him. Speaking of sportspeople, we also catch up with Kiwi basketball great Tom Abercrombie as he arrives back inNew Zealand following team success at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

And changing gears, we feature this month a look at some identities within the New Zealand music scene that aren’t quite household names (at least, not yet anyway), including kings of collaboration, Jupiter Project. On four wheels, we drive the all new Bentley ContinentalGT (trust me, it’s an absolute stunner), and we check out a couple of stars from New Zealand’s newest automotive brand, SEAT.

Issue 001 - Autumn 2018

Such is the depth of New Zealand-born-and-bred motor racing talent on the world’s stage right now, that Brendon Hartley isn’t the only local driver at the sharp end of high-performance racing to feature in this issue.

Formula-E star Mitch Evans is revelling in the much quicker Panasonic Jaguar I-TYPE 2 race car this season. We caught showcasing the impressive Jaguar I-Pace by thrashing a Tesla Model X off the track, he finished in P6 after starting from P14 in the actual race; a very impressive effort.

We also showcase a real Italian flavour in this first issue of 66 Magazine; quite literally in the case of Simon Gault, who tells of his love of Italian cuisine (p58). Matisse proves that Northern Italy builds more than just amazing sports cars (p54), although fittingly, we do also feature an automotive stunner from that region too: the Lamborghini Urus.
