To celebrate the fact that the first Land Rover Defender was produced 65 years ago, Studio Job was asked to take this 4×4 in hand. In their own way, they have created an ode to the vehicle that makes many of us dream of adventures. Eventually, it has turned out to be more than simply a revised or upgraded vehicle. The result is a sculpture that questions escapism, power relationships and above all Studio Job’s own work. “Designing a car is the same as when, as a designer, you’re sometimes given the chance to redefine a hotel: it’s a higher goal. You don’t get such important commissions every day,” says Job Smeets, founder of Studio Job. “On top of that, Defender is an emotionally charged icon.

It’s not that often we feature news from the car industry, but the direction Volvo has taken with its newest car we really love: the Concept Coupé. The concept, which is the first design from Volvo’s new design director, embodies a bold and interesting makeover for the Swedish car brand. The first out of three concept cars points out the new design direction for Volvo. Thomas Ingenlath, Senior VP of Design, says this car manifests that Volvo “will stand out as the calm, confident and naturally powerful challenger.” The Concept Coupé offers new elements to the Volvo brand by merging contemporary Scandinavian lifestyle and design with iconic elements from Volvo’s 1960’s era and the beautiful P1800 in particular. The result is a new aesthetic showing craftsmanship and innovation. read more…

Pure Classics’ Frank Strothe is a man who likes challenges. He had driven to the Nordkapp in Norway some years ago, but that was in the summer which wasn’t much of a contest in the eyes of the driver. His ambition was to do a winter expedition; “driving in the snow is more fun, especially in a classic car that relies on your driving skill to keep it on the road, rather than a host of electronic safety measures.”  read more…

It is not ‘one of the most beautiful’ cars by Jaguar, but THE most beautiful and phenomenal piece of machinery, the XJ13. Only one was made, to win Le Mans in the mid-1960s, a race that it would never take part in due to a change in the rules… Dunhill made this nice movie about read more…
