When it first came out back in 2008, I was in love with the Audi A5. Unfortunately, until a couple of days ago, I didn’t have a chance to drive it. To be honest, I didn’t spend much time with it, only a half an hour or so, but I couldn’t resist so I took my equipment and made a couple of photos for my website.
Since the AutoIQ story is long over, I have no more chance to photograph interesting cars and publish them. Most of the cars I’ve published in 2017 are from the archive, but a friend of mine got me a half an hour with the new Skoda Kodiaq. I couldn’t resist that, so I took my camera and only one lens (Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART) and I went to capture a couple of photos. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time, and the car was a bit dirty, so I had to work with what I got.
I already wrote about the end of the AutoIQ Magazine in a post about the Abarth 595 Competizione, I even published all of the cars I’ve photographed in the 4,5 year period, but I still have a couple of those I want to publish here. This car, Kia Sorento, I had on a test in February 2016, one year ago.
In February 2016 I met a new Fiat 500, and even I thought that I wouldn’t like that car – I did! For example, the bigger versions, 500L and 500L Trekking, are not good at all and I was really disappointed when I had them on a test. The small 500 is a nice looking car, nice to drive, has enough space for that kind of a car – it’s a really nice small city car. But then, in December of that same year, I met its brother. Much, much meaner twin brother who made me smile so much – Abarth 595 Competizione!
