Review: GRIP - Das Motormagazin (Print)

GRIP - Das Motormagazin 1/2013

Hey Guys

Can you remember my little Interview in the german motoring magazine "GRIP - Das Motormagazin"?

Here I'm now reviewing the first GRIP-Mag of 2013 for you!

The first appearance of the Mag is definitely high-quality, but through it's price of 3,50 € definitely justified. In this Mag there was a little Extra, a Poster of the Porsche Turbo RSR Martini - can you remember when you used to read "Bravo" in the earlier Days of your Teenager-Years - that's why I now use to call GRIP "the Motoring Bravo" ..

After opening the Mag and a bold Audi R8-Ad smiling at you you can see a Group-Picture of the whole Grip-Team. I really like it when you have a Face to the writing Person, very cool!

After another Ad there is finally the Index with each Article's Pagenumber. 130 Pages in total filled with the "Best of 911" Cover-Story, something about the Ferrari Hybridization, Rockabilly Girls, a Aventador Test Drive and some more Stories and Cars - from Hypercars to Classic Cars.

What I don't understand .. they are mentioning a Lawn Mower Race, but not the Tuning World Bodensee - which is much more popular as this 'Event' and in a much bigger City?! Well..

The following Pages consist of some One-Page-Articles on several Cars, something about Jay-Z, the "Geneva Motor Show TOP 10" consisting of Press-Pictures and no Real-Pictures and some more Ads. Then they are comparing the Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series with the SLS Electric Drive until the Porsche 911 Stories fill some Sites. Among them a few Pages about Magnus Walker, some Pages later something about BULLIT and Steve McQueen and the Hennessey Venom GT, the worlds fastes Car.

Now the Interesting Part starts, a comparision of ALL the currently Available Cars with their release year, weight, max. speed, Power etc. followed by 4 Pages of "Rockabilly Girls"-Pictures before some DTM-Stuff and 3 Pages for Motorbike-Fans.

On the back I found a familiar back .. the MINI Paceman John Cooper Works. A Review on this Car will follow here soon ;)


Don't miss the GRIP GIVE AWAY!!!!!!!!!!! :)
