In the post about the Abarth 595 Competizione I wrote that that was the last car I’ve photographed for the AutoIQ Magazine. It have been weeks since I decided that I’m going to gather ALL the cars I’ve photographed, but I am just to lazy to sit down and do it. I had the images prepared (resized and filled with the file info) for weeks, and now I’m finally making the post!

So, I’m just going to upload images, they all have a description… All the cars will be uploaded in groups (by year), but they won’t be organized by the date I’ve photographed them (except the first one (Mazda 5) and the last one (Abarth 595 Competizione)).

And, the last car I’ve ever photographed for the AutoIQ Magazine…

December 16th, 2016 – Abarth 595 Competizione: The last car I’ve ever photographed for AutoIQ Magazine, and one of the most exciting cars I’ve driven. I know, it’s small, not so powerful, but having 180bhp in this kinda car is ultra exciting

It was a nice journey, and I’m sad that it’s all over, but still… I’ve enjoyed so much and gather many experiences. I will never forget that I had a chance to drive more than 200 cars during the 4,5 year period in which I collaborated with the AutoIQ, and in one period I was also one of the owners of the magazine. It was an amazing experience, but it’s time to move on…
