Better than the original and a long way from factories and assembly lines. Handcrafted, radical, and subversive, these custom cars are designed and made by a small number of specialists from around the globe who share a common goal: to create the ultimate driving machine.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 fourwheeled 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.

Editorial Reviews

"Readers who aren't all that interested in the auto world will be surprised and thrilled by the incredibly comprehensive content within because rather than just being for rev-heads, this book has been thoughtfully put together to touch on history, design and (of course) the characters who obsess over their cars." —Cool Hunting"Gestalten publishes a car bible for the real-life fast and furious . . . The Drive is the sort of book Vin Diesel has on his coffee table. Each page is another sumptuous, tricked-out racer, plucked from the entire pantheon of dream cars." —Fast Company
