Do you remember what it felt like to turn 25? Thanks to you, our readers and subscribers, we're getting to experience the same feeling. Not only are we celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, but we're also pulling out all the stops, with an entire year of special issues coming your way.

This month, we have 25 special stories for you! Each story celebrates our love for everything on wheels, the true essence of Motoring, and what it means to be an enthusiast. The crew headed out to the sleepy heritage town of Udvada, to brainstorm ideas for this very issue. Pablo went and checked out the very first Morris Mini to come to India, especially after finding out it was in Goa. Heading north, Anubhav thought that driving the AMG SL55 with its top down would be a perfect way to make the Delhi crowds envious. And how many people do you know who can boast of driving up to Ladakh in a VW Camper?

Venturing into international waters, we explored the 1000 Miglia Xperience drive in the UAE, followed by a ride in the vast Russian northlands. Back at base, Kartik discovered 500 shades of grey while bringing together three iconic motorcycles, seeking revenge against a certain four-stroker. Manaal put together the three generations of the KTM 390 Duke, while Keshav, fresh from learning the art of wheelie-ing, decided to kick things up a notch; we also checked out a beloved two-stroker turned into a cafe racer. There were British and Japanese marvels to see in Bengaluru, and then we foolishly challenged CS Santosh to a duel. Oh, and we reminisced with an ex-Motoring man who's busy testing tractors these days.

This is just the beginning, and we owe it all to you – our readers, founding members, friends, Motoring crew and ex-crew. Your unwavering support has made these 25 years possible. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and let's toast to what lies ahead!
