Bugatti‘s Veyron Grand Sport “L’Or Blanc” is estimated to cost €1.65 million (aproximately $2.4 million dollars), it is currently the world’s most expensive car. The automobile was designed in collaboration with porcelain manufacturer Konigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (Berlin), and what is unique about it is the use of porcelain pieces on the body and cabin.
In Issue 003, London’s Design Museum founder Stephen Bayley comments that Concept Cars for the manufacturers are equivalent to showing a little leg, sexing up the brand. We don’t mind that a bit. For us, concept cars are a glimpse into the fantasy world of the design studios within these automotive brands. They show us what an unfettered opportunity to create at the best level can bring forth, and demonstrates to the motoring fan a little of the design and technology philosophy of each brand, giving us a chance to wait in anticipation for more.

Edition29 THE RIDES magazine is a cinematic presentation of the motoring life. We stay true to this theme by filling this issue with a panorama of visuals and accompanying audio of technically advanced visually stunning concept cars. The Architecture Editor of Wallpaper Magazine talks about megastar designer Marc Newson’s design of the Pantone color inspired Ford 021C Concept. Author Richard Dredge tells us about the latest Aston Martin V12 Zagato. Photographer and author Randy Leffingwell dwells into the super hybrid Porsche 918 RSR. Writer Euan Sey discusses the edgy BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept. The Issue concludes with the stunning homage to the 1930’s BMW 328, the newly unveiled black carbon fiber wrapped BMW 328 Hommage.
Kokorico, French for ‘cock-a-doodle-doo’, is rather an apt description for this bold creation : the new fragrance by Jean-Paul Gaultier.
What do you get when you mix a fashion photographer, and a master of animation? If you said beautiful gifs, then you are 110% correct! Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg have teamed up to bring us beautiful animated photographs, a.k.a Cinemagraph. These Cinemagraphs are more than a picture, but not quite a video. Their main goal is to visually illustrate a short story. To give you a comparison, think of the magical newspaper from the movie Harry Potter. Now you are probably scratching your head and thinking how in the word are these different from a GIF(Graphics Interchange Format)? An animated .gif is usually a sequence of stills pulled from a video, combined together and repurposed into a .gif. Cinemagraphs are different because Jamie and Kevin use a single photograph while adding a living moment within it. The process takes many hours of manual editing. If you wish to know how it’s done, check out the following articles:

These gifs have been attracting attention like crazy in the last few weeks, we respect this art form and would love to share it with the world! Today we have collected some of the best gifs that Jamie and Kevin have created! For more inspiration visit Jamie’s Tumblog Fromme-toyou.tumblr.com.
We have had a pretty long discussion here in the office of Cruzine magazine today on how to choose a title for the showcase we have just prepared. Steampunk, shock art, contemporary art installations, or maybe simply photo manipulations? As the result we have decided to take a Solomon’s decision and let you, our readers, guess how to categorize or describe the images, you will see below. So, get ready for something really unusual, sometimes shocking, but mostly amusing, with clear traces of some art trends, though it will not be that easy to identify the particular art movements and schools into which these works fit the best.
