For years, VW Bugs were simply cheap transportation: fuel efficient, easy to work on, a boon to young families and college students. Then something about the quirky little car caught the imagination of a generation, and the low-cost, utilitarian Bug was suddenly sporting a custom paint job and fancy wheels--and tricked-out engines.

This book provides a fantastic overview of customized Bugs. It shows the scene from which the demon bug emerged, and focuses on specific styles, from the mild to the wild. Cruisers and dragsters, sleepers and monsters--all are captured by Stephan Szantai's unmatched photography.

Accompanying these remarkable pictures is the how and why of each cars build. Painted, re-equipped, modified to taste, these are the Bugs of a generations dreams, a most humble vehicle suddenly and magnificently transformed.

Ken Block's Gymkhana THREE. Ultimate Playground; l'Autodrome, France. Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l'Autodrome de Linas --Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.

The venerable Monaco Grand Prix. The jewel in Formula 1's crown. The dash through the Principality's tortuous streets is the most prestigious on the calendar; it stands on a pedestal, almost distinct from the sport from which it was born. It's the social event of the season, but Monte Carlo is also one of the most challenging destinations on the calendar. The two-mile lap may be the shortest seen all year, but still places extreme demands on the car and requires a unique set-up. First and foremost, Monaco is a street circuit with the lap itself is dominated by slow speed corners and undulations playing havoc. Evocative corners, such as Lowes, Chicane and Rascasse are all taken in either first or second gear, so not only are the brakes worked considerably harder in Monaco than anywhere else, but the number of gear shifts made reaches over 4,000, approximately 500 more than at any other track. With speeds dipping to as low as 28mph on the entry to corners such as the Lowes hairpin, good traction to power the car out of the exit is crucial to set a competitive lap time. With just 45% of the circuit driven at full throttle, the longest period lasting just eight seconds through the tunnel where speeds peak at 180mph, drivers record the lowest average lap speed of all races at Monaco so engines are given a relatively easy ride over the weekend. The proximity of the barriers leaves no room for error and there are no straights along which they can relax. Overtaking is virtually impossible, which places extra importance on Saturday afternoon's qualifying session. Grid position is crucial. Add the glamour of the Monaco harbour and a handful of A-list celebrities into the mix and you have one of the biggest sporting events in the world. In summary, the playground of the rich and famous transforms itself into one of the season's greatest challenges, where only the best reap the reward.

Melbourne is known as one of the world's great street art capitals for its unique expressions of art displayed on outdoor locations throughout the city. Embracing the urban spirit of Melbourne, Porsche Centre Melbourne has transformed their laneway into a gallery for Porsche enthusiasts.
In the past, the rear entrance wall of the Porsche Centre Melbourne has been used as a graffiti wall. Now, Porsche Centre Melbourne has come up with their own proposal of a graffiti artwork that encapsulates the history of Porsche by displaying an image of a classic 1973 Porsche RS 2.7. Watch the artists at work in this video.

Can cars be more popular than traditional art? The Top Gear trio are challenged to find out by producing motoring 'art' for an exhibition in Middlesborough. Jeremy enlists the help of former racing driver David Coulthard for some paintballing F1-style, James builds a sculpture from car parts and Richards paints a homage to John Constable's The Haywain...with a motoring twist!
