A lot of time and effort goes into a Top Gear Philippines magazine cover shoot. First we have to decide which car is worthy of gracing that glossy centerfold, which we then coordinate with the carmaker to put things into motion. Then we select from our ever-growing pool of talented photographers to assign the big job.
After that comes the hard part of finding and securing the right location for the car, and coordinating all the logistics that go with it. So by the time you buy your copy of our magazine, you're looking at the culmination of a month's worth of hard work, sleepless nights, and many pantry breaks.
This month, our cover car is the Volkswagen Golf GTS. You've probably already seen the magazine layout done by our talented art director, and the videos put together by our equally amazing multimedia producer. Now, we're giving you a glimpse of what it's like on the other side of the lenses. Watch our video above to see snippets of our trip from Manila to Real, Quezon to shoot the new station wagon.
Putting together a magazine cover is no easy task, but we gladly do it time and time again for you guys because of the fun adventures we get to enjoy along the way. Click play to join in on our journey.
