Nothing says summer like driving a convertible. The car without a roof has always been a symbol for luxury and laissez-faire. And it still holds true today: everybody who’s anybody drives “topless.” The larger four-seater convertibles in particular have always been highly sought after—but they are difficult to build and have usually been made as coupés for this reason. Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in this area. Mercedes-Benz: The Grand Cabrios & Coupés gives us a peek at the long-standing partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Stuttgart-based photographer, René Staud. Carefully-staged photos show graceful curves and precision down to the finest details that convey the company’s dedication to a very special kind of driving pleasure. This volume presents the most important convertibles and related coupés of Daimler automotive history. A special highlight is Daimler’s new flagship, a convertible based on the new S-class that is being rolled out at 2015. Even though summer eventually comes to an end, and sunny days can give way to showers, this book stands for everlasting convertible adventures.

From early hot rods and lowriders to modern tuning: this book presents a huge variety of unique cars from around the world. Automobiles have been tuned, restored, and rebuilt for years, but -whether made for leisurely cruising or peak performance - today's custom machines are more interesting than ever before. After exploring custom motorcycles in The Ride and The Ride 2nd Gear, it's high time to focus on the four-wheeled scene. The Drive showcases the diversity and reach of this custom movement. Each car is utterly unique; each builder a true personality. Passion and craft meet in their workshops in North America, Europe, and Asia. The resulting vehicles -and this book - are for anyone for whom a car is so much more than just a way to get around.

Men and motorcycles: a story that has vacillated somewhere between cult and cliché for years. Custom bikes, in particular, have a history that is deeply rooted in the spirit of freedom and change of the 1960s, as well as man’s primal urge to build something with his own hands — or, in this case, tools. The Ride 2nd Gear is a showcase of the power and beauty of these bikes.

Gentlemen, Start Your Engines! reveals the undeniable icons of the classic car scene. As lovers of exclusive limited series, record-making vehicles, and legendary races themselves, Jared Zaugg and the team at Bonhams went all out in their efforts to collect the best of the best in this publication—and it shows. Every page gives the reader a sense of the intensity of true automobile culture. Large-format images showcase sleek shapes and tactile vintage interiors in loving detail. The book features a selection of models that go far beyond mere technical stats and gleaming chrome. Rather, they all offer something far more valuable: compelling stories. These include the rare and uniquely configured Lamborghini Miura SV Coupe purchased by rock star Rod Stewart. Or the Bugatti Type 57S Atalante Coupe from 1937 that, after the owner’s death, was rediscovered by his family sitting exactly as he left it nearly a half-century earlier. All the big names are included, but the focus is on what can be found behind the logos and the polished surfaces.
