In seven years and 30 issues, ramp has lived up to its name with its stylish take on cars, filling its pages with fresh, pioneering imagery. ramp sees a car as much more than a means of transportation or a technical miracle: to ramp, cars equal culture. A car is a part of our lives that can become an extension of our identities, a place where we touch, get behind the wheel, drive, pursue our passions, and experience the world. As intensely and subjectively as possible. ramp is on the road around the world, to people, ideas, places, things, and events. With its immediate, authentic, and creative images, and with its modern and surprising visual design, ramp has become the most-honored car magazine in the world in its seven-year existence. It has set the creative bar for both magazines and advertising. Coinciding with the 30th issue, the team, headed by editor-in-chief and publisher Michael Köckritz, has brought the best pictures and stories out of the archives. In accordance with ramp’s philosophy, they will be placed in a fresh new context, also providing an opportunity to show off many gorgeous pictures that, for one reason or another, did not make it into the magazine.The result: a wild jam session of automotive storytelling.

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.
