24

When the world is in danger, there are always a few guys you can call: James Bond and Jason Bourne, for example. Or Jack Bauer. 24 hours should be enough time for him. No idle, always pushing the envelope. Okay, unfortunately he only saves the world in the series, but there he saves with virtuoso cl…

DLDUUDGR *

When it comes to the question of all questions, the question about the universe and all the rest, the answer is simple: 42. At least that's what Douglas Adams thinks. The rebel, idealist and lateral thinker. Who has shown his readers a surreal change of perspective and exuberant silliness. The stori…

Heat

Admittedly, with this title we have adapted to the outside temperatures. But lukewarm is something anyone can do. It's also simply boring somehow. So better hot and passionate.That's why we accompany two brothers with their 1-series BMWs through energetic London, take a look at the “Roaring 70s” of …

Night on Earth

When the curtain of the night rises from the stage, the play can begin. Because with the night we not only leave the day behind us, but also everyday life. Because the night stimulates and inspires. Even us. The result are stories like from a film by Jim Jarmusch: about the Ford GT40 MkII by Graham …

Easy Riders

Born to be wild! Our Easy Riders are essentially wild dogs and cool guys, who convince with their own values, attitudes and life style. People who are not easily irritated. Not by modern times anyway. These are guys like Walter Röhrl, who drove the rally of his life in Kenya in 1979, or Steve McQuee…

Forever Young

Young and crisp - and that forever and ever. Unfortunately this is a pipe dream. It would also be kind of boring, wouldn't it? In any case, we think that this issue should be about things that are timelessly exciting. About people, ideas, being on the road and the experiences associated with it. Jus…

Family Affairs

The family is an open concept, which we interpret here in the sense of pluralized forms of life in a modern and playful way. This includes all living variants. How does all this fit into a car culture magazine? We are not quite sure either. But on the family holidays to Italy, everyone has always fi…

Sex, Drug & Rock 'n' Roll

Enough of these bores and babbittry. The whole world of the car is corroding in the upheaval. It's high time for a little rock 'n' roll, give it some pep. And why the sex? And those drugs? Let's put it this way: If you can't explain it, you'd better not look at this issue. But then you'll also miss …

Hurra, wir retten die Welt!

Just quickly save the world. Everybody does that these days, right? Environmental studies and green credentials as a core curriculum. But if you think you're going to take the moral high ground, you've got another thing coming. How about a cheeky wink and a creative approach for a change? In any cas…

Let’s get out of here! 2

Restless longing and restless search are never wrong. But one should start at some point. Only with movement the matter becomes exciting. Whoever is on the move then develops and changes. We drive through the USA in a 1988 Chevrolet Caprice, curve through the Alps in an Audi TTS and a Fiat 500 and d…

Let’s get out of here!

A good road movie is all about the right vehicles. To be more precise: In this issue about an Audi R8 Quattro and a BMW M1. About a smart convertible at an AC/DC concert and about the Porsche GT3. Both very special free spirits, of course. Then there is also a motorcycle trip through Vietnam with a …

Es lebe der Sport!

The sport is healthy, gives us momentum and is popular with young and old. At least that's what Rainhard Fendrich sang. Which he is not entirely wrong about. If only it wasn't always so exhausting. In this issue, it's all about a Lotus 2-Eleven, the Porsche Panamera and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Hyb…

Upon the ladies!

“Women carry half of heaven” - says a Chinese proverb. We think: that's right! That is why we dedicate this issue to the women we love, adore and desire. But of course we also dedicate it to the men, because without them the ladies would just be bored.Author Wladimir Kaminer and his wife Olga will c…

Nach dem Auto

Good relationships tolerate being questioned from time to time. So we thought the car away. Gently, of course. But let's be honest: We can't really imagine a world without cars. Without the 911 Carrera 4S? No! Without the Ford GT40? Hard to imagine. Without the Lamborghini LP560-4 or Corvette Z06? T…

Helden

Our heroes are: real daredevils who simply do their thing, what is important to them, masculine and dreamy at the same time. Our heroes have managed to keep their dreams alive. The heroes of this issue are the Infiniti G37 Coupé, with which we drive all the way from the Bronx to Brooklyn, the specia…

In der Hitze der Nacht

We have always loved long nights. Especially the hot ones. A feverish mood in the air Then the time is perfect for a trip through the night. Lonely in a nice car or with a cool beauty in the passenger seat. For this issue we let Dieter Burmester show us the perfect sound of the night, drive a Smart …
