Create a fully interactive iPad edition of the worlds greatest car magazine

Working in partnership with the Top Gear editorial and creative team, Engine Creative has delivered the enhanced interactive digital edition of Top Gear Magazine on the iPad launching it into the Top 10 Digital Editions in the UK according to ABC Consumer Magazine Report.

Rich interactive content

A combination of rich interactive content including immersive front covers using video and animation, bespoke HTML5 content using data capture, touch capabilities and the gyroscopic functionality have all helped to make the magazine a huge commercial success in the ever evolving landscape of digital publishing.

“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 Top Gear, but with added everything.”

Top Gear’s Editor-in-Chief, Charlie Turner sums it up


Top Gear Magazine has already got an award-winning printed edition with added augmented content for readers to interact with and so the logical next step was to tackle the tablet version. With a wealth of great content and exclusive imagery and video to add to the mix, the key to the success of the project was to make sure that the iPad edition delivers a truly enhanced user experience with all of the style and bravado you’d expect from the Top Gear team.
