The Secrets Issue

Welcome to the ‘Secrets’ issue of the award-winning V Magazine. We have been on an extraordinary voyage of discovery to bring you hidden insight into some of Britain’s best-kept secrets, not to mention a few of our own. We unveil the New Astra, which comes with a host of surprises, and discover the secrets of Manchester with a local cabbie and the brilliant New Viva. ADAM S shows its hidden power on the mountain roads of Snowdonia, while the Mokka takes to the green lanes, the secret road network that criss-crosses Britain. And we meet secret agent Daniel Craig, who returns as 007 in SPECTRE, this autumn. The secret’s out!
