About Kilometer Magazine

Welcome to Kilometer Magazine, where we're obsessed with the World of European Motoring. Here at Kilometer we focus on the great cars and motorcycles — past, present and future — from Germany, Italy, England and Sweden. Even the occasional machine from France or Spain. We travel the world to share this special brand of motoring culture with you, and we deliver it to you through the comfort and convenience of your computer screen.

Why would we create a magazine just for enthusiasts of European vehicles? The answer is simple: Kilometer Magazine is an extension of what we've been doing for more than a decade with sites like VWvortex, Fourtitude, Swedespeed, MWerks and others.
European cars and motorcycles are what we know and love, and Kilometer allows us to deliver even more of that world to our readers.

We know, it's not really a magazine; at least not in the traditional sense. Your mail carrier hasn't spilled his lunch on the torn cover, subscription cards aren't falling out with every turn of the page, and there isn't a card—weight tobacco ad tripping up your thumb in its search of that one article you really wanted to read.

Aside from all that (and the fact that it's free) Kilometer is a magazine in just about every other way. Everything you'll read on Kilometer — whether it be a news story about your favorite brand, a drive review of the latest model, or some other article that addresses the unique world of European motoring — is an original piece of work created by our passionate crew of writers and photographers.

We could tell you that Kilometer Magazine is the only site you'll ever need to read, but we're a humble bunch, so we'll spare you the hard sell. We hope you'll bookmark Kilometer Magazine and make it one of your daily stops.
