Alpina E21 C1

The Alpina C1 2,3 is based on the E21 323i. What I find most interesting about the E21 C1 is that it comes from a time when Alpina was taking used BMWs to work their magic on. It was only in 1990 that Alpina exclusively built with the base of new BMWs …

Abarth 1000 TC

How often does somebody say: „Hey! Your boot is open!“ ? Okay, to be honest I don’t know. But it surely happens once in a while.

During the development of this series the Italian car manufacturer was struggling to keep the tuned 1L engine running on good temperatures. After several different modifications …

GP Ice Race – VAGO Magazine

Le concept du GP Ice Race est basé sur la tradition d’un petit village tyrolien : le « skijöring ». Dans les années 30, les habitants s’amusaient sur la neige en faisant du ski, tirés par des chevaux. Une vingtaine d’années plus tard, l’idée de se faire tracter par des autos sur un circuit de glace vit le jour. Puis, longtemps mise de côté, cette activité locale a finalement repris en 2019.

Pour expliquer ces années d’oubli, il suffit de se questionner : pourquoi se laisserait-on tenter par une idée aussi folle ?

Winter With Inka

BMW classic have two winter cars. One is a white 1500 and the other one is a 1974 E12 525 in Inka orange. This year they thought that it would be interesting to give out the 525 to different photographers so they could show if it’s any good at being a daily driver during the winter. They decided that each of us should have the car for 7 days and show what they are getting up to. So, on Monday the 16th of December I picked up Inka at the BMW Classic HQ …

MeilenMacher 2 – VAGO Magazine

MeilenMacher est un néologisme allemand ayant pour signification “producteur de kilomètres”. En d’autres mots, cela décrit la passion de conduire, passion que les deux munichois en question dans ce sujet ont depuis leurs enfances. L’ancien garage du père de Florian a toujours été un bon endroit pour se donner rendez-vous, avec des amis et leurs voitures. Ça faisait des années, avec son ami Luka, qu’ils y passaient leurs fins de journées pour discuter de bagnoles et de la vie en général. C’est alors naturellement que Florian et Luka ont décidé d’organiser des événements réunissant encore plus de passionnés pour pouvoir explorer les routes environnantes ensemble. Depuis l’an dernier ils ouvrent leurs portes à un plus grand public, pour un rassemblement reprenant le nom MeilenMacher.

Ireland – seven days to drive around the emerald isle

I started heading West; North West to be precise. I was heading towards Snowdonia, Wales. Normally, a five hour car journey along English motorways is long, monotonous and tiring. This time, however, it felt different. I was excited by the prospect of traversing territory that I had never experienced before. My destination for the day may have been Snowdonia – which is worth a visit on its own – but I had a greater trip ahead of me. The real adventure would begin in none other than the emerald isle
