TopGear Magazine on the iPad – tested by The Stig

If you’re stuck for Christmas present ideas this year how about gifting your loved ones the great new interactive iPad edition of TopGear Magazine that we’ve just completed with the TopGear editorial team.  It’s the prefect excuse to buy an iPad for Christmas if you haven’t already got one and has been fully tested by The Stig.

New interactive features of the digital magazine include:

  • Interactive content wheel – navigate to the latest news, hottest car reviews and the TopGear Garage

  • Hidden content – tap to reveal additional content within features
  • Exclusive offers – digital promotions only available on iPad
  • Buyers’ guide – read all the essentials for every new car available

Charlie Turner, TopGear Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief said of the iPad publication:

“What you have in your hands is the culmination of many months work, an app that brings you up close and personal with the world’s most exciting cars and allows you to hear them, see them and interact with them in more high-definition, eye-popping detail than ever before. It’s basically TopGear, but with added everything.”


Simon Carrington, Publisher TopGear Magazine said:

“We’re delighted to have been able to finally launch our interactive tablet edition of TopGear magazine and really pleased to work with Engine Creative as our technical partners. We think that together we’ve created a great app that really showcases both the available technology and the amazing content that our editorial team produce every month.”


Andy Wise, Strategic Director at Engine Creative said:

“The biggest challenge for creating the first fully interactive version of TopGear Magazine was how to squeeze so much great content into the iPad edition. Making the transition from print to digital publishing has also meant that the unique styling of the magazine has had to evolve to become touchscreen-friendly.

We worked closely with the TopGear team to make sure that every page delivers something new to the readers with all of the style and bravado you’d expect from TopGear. The resulting iPad edition is a must-have for all fans of the TopGear brand as it combines the great editorial content of the magazine, the detail and interactivity from the website and the top quality video content you associate with the TV show into one immersive TG-fest.”


The 2012 Awards issue is the publication’s first fully interactive iPad issue utilising the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite platform and is out now.  To see the first fully interactive TopGear iPad edition in action download the TopGear Magazine app from the App Store or download the publication from the Newsstand on your iPad.
