Dream Cars: The Best Cars in the World

Dream Cars: The Best Cars in the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning celebration of the most sought-after cars in the world.<P>This fast-paced, beautifully illustrated book presents fifty of the most desirable cars in the history of motoring. And it is no mere popularity contest: each outstanding automobile selected is either a masterpiece of engineering a delight to the eye, or brutishly powerful. The rarest of the bunch combine all three qualities.<P>Drawing on a decade's experience testing the very fastest and most exotic cars, expert journalist Andrew Frankel gives an opinionated and in-depth view of what goes into the making of a dream automobile. For each model Frankel outlines the history of the car and provides technical highlights, as well as a driver's eye view of what it's like to drive flat out. In addition to a dedicated specifications page for each marque, he presents stories of high-profile owners for the most prestigious models. The selection includes classics from all eras of automotive history — from the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost to the Jaguar XK8, from the Ferrari F40 to the MacLaren F1.<P>Illustrated throughout with 280 specially commissioned color photographs, this provocative profile of the most highly valued cars in the world evokes a world of speed and adventure, with every chrome curve and flared fin suggesting power and passion. Dream Cars is sure to delight and fascinate dream-car owners and car-owning dreamers alike.
