A stunning celebration of the most sought-after cars in the world.
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.
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.
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.
