Han Solo (Dodge Charger Hellcat)

»What a piece of junk!« says Luke when he sees Han Solo's Millennium Falcon on Tatooine for the first time. Some have a similar opinion about American muscle cars. Maybe they'll change their minds when they see this falcon-style Dodge Charger Hellcat: The Hellcat crossed with the Bird of Prey sprints off pretty damn fast. We just don't know if they should have put the Sublight engine thrusters in the grille. After all, it's supposed to go forwards and not backwards.

Darth Vader (BMW Z4)

These days, you should be shopping and using public transport with a mask in front of your mouth and nose - but so when not driving. Even Darth Vader noticed and therefore simply gave his jet-black BMW Z4 the appropriate look. His E89 exchanges the iconic Bavarian propeller for the Death Star in the logo. Come to the dark side - we have sports cars!

Stormtrooper (Alfa Romeo Giulia)

The stormtroopers in the original trilogy are not really to be envied, as the rebels knock them around quite often. When it comes to motorized locomotion, the clones of the Alfa Romeo Guilia provide a very stylish design template. In contrast to the storm troopers' shooting skills with the laser cannon, this one is a real bull's eye.

Boba Fett (Mercedes G65 AMG)

»I am just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe,« the bounty hunter Jango Fett once told Jedi Obi-Wan. If the illustrators have their way, his son (and clone) Boba Fett has it better: he no longer has to walk or fly his way, but now drives a powerful Mercedes G-Class with a V12 engine. And thus has the best prerequisites to make a name for himself in the galaxy like his father (or brother?).

Wedge Antilles (Lamborghini Countach)

Less is more. We didn't know that the pilot Wedge Antilles had a preference for this Bauhaus idea in particular. But we did know that he likes fast things with triangular shapes like the A-Wing-Fighter. So it was only logical that he would also use this reduced form, which was particularly popular in the 1970s, in his cars - in the form of this Lamborghini Countach.

Streetstyle

The world looks different through the eyes of a skater: the truly gifted can transform even the most mundane urban landscape into a concrete playground. And when this talent is photographed by FRED MORTAGNE, alias French Fred, the results are beautiful.

More is more: Mletzko Marrakesh

The material from which Dirk Lührmann's Porsche dreams are shaped comes in oriental opulence in the case of the »Marrakesh«. But in other respects too, the 911 conversions made by »Mletzko« in Osnabrück are rather puristic. And just as important: anything but ordinary.

"The richest man in Ireland is the one with the best sense of humor."

If you have a sense of humor, you have to be spontaneous. Right? Not necessarily. The evidence to the contrary is provided by photographer Tony Kelly. With his pictures, but also in an interview. And speaking of evidence: We're happy to show why Ramp and the native-born Irishman have been working together for 10 years. And also the cover of the english edition, which is a true Tony Kelly. Quite spontaneously.
