Publisher Comments:

Discover the story of cars — from the earliest horseless carriages to the modern supercar. Here is a spectacular and informative look at the fascinating world of motor cars, past and present. Stunning real-life photographs of cars, both classic and contemporary and of all the mechanisms that make a car go offer a unique "eyewitness" view from bumper to bumper. See one of the world's oldest cars, how to make a Model T Ford, inside a Gullwing Mercedes, and cars and engines sliced in half. Learn why cars need gears, how the engine works, how the first drivers kept warm, and how turbochargers boost engine power. Discover the weird and wonderful warning signals used in early cars, how tires have changed through the years, how cars are designed and built today, why cars need suspension, and much, much more.
