Not yet, only at the Auto Show and the local dealership. I've yet to see one on the roads, but I'm not surprised - there are only a handful out there at the moment

i got the limited edition version of this, but it doesnt have the hardback as it was from the printers who made the books
there is nthing wrong with it, it has the extra 200+ pages in it, just unfortunately no hardback!

I 've got this book recently and photographed almost all pages. See they in my album on Yandex.ru mikhailpetrenko €” алŒбом «Driving Ambition» на Яндекс.Фо‚ка…
To see in full size click on "В другом размере ". Excuse me for not very good quality.

well, since Peterson revived (worthily) the thread, I'm going to make a question:
why the book has so weird prices on Amazon or Ebay? you can have it brand new for less than 100 € still they ask even up to 500 € without saying it's one of the special editions nor being one of the signed ones.
any suggestion?
