This volume is a fabulous photographic catalogue of a range of important and influential models over a century of automobile history. The vehicles presented in these pages are unrivalled design objects even today. Detailed studio images taken by one of the worldâ€™s most famous automobile photographers dramatically present the exceptional characteristics that make each car a work of art, while the brief yet incisive commentary narrates the background and the anecdotes associated with each model. The volume is divided into five chapters, each one dedicated to a specific quality that determines a modelâ€™s success: the fun factor, prestige, speed, power, and beauty. The volumeâ€™s concluding section presents a portfolio of technical sheets for each model in the book; they are classified according to the five main themes.
