The Timeless Racer: Episode 1 - Year 2027: Machines of a Time Traveling Speed Junkie Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents, in large-format images, Simons unique virtually designed racing machines and tells the story of international racer Vic Cooper, who time-travels under the name 'Vic13' and later 'Mean13' to the past and the future to compete in a wide variety of motor races. His attempts are supported by world famous constructor Masucci, who built amazing vehicles for Cooper between the years 1916 and 2582. In this first volume of The Timeless Racer, Cooper time-travels to the year 2027, where he competes in the world-famous—and legendarily dangerous— 48 Hours of America endurance race. The book puts three vehicles in the spotlight, shown in incredibly photo-realistic images.

 

Car enthusiasts, design fans, and fiction addicts will be awed by fantastic and futuristic race cars in drawings and hyper-real renderings up to 24 inches wide. The book includes special attention to the fine details that make alternate worlds believable: fictitious sponsors and conflicts, with characters described in spectacular detail through photographs and back stories.

 

In this captivating series, Simon returns to create an imaginary but entirely possible reality of glamour, speed, and honor. Welcome to The Timeless Racer.

The foreword has been written by racing legend Jacky Ickx, who raced in the 1960s, 70s and ‘80s for many famed teams such as Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche, Brabham or Lotus. He is the only driver to have won in Formula One, Can-Am, Le Mans, and the Paris-Dakar rally.
