Synopses & Reviews
Colin Campbell offers a thorough and systematic examination of some of the finest achievements in sports car design through the late seventies. His technical survey spans engine and valve train designs, tire and suspension considerations, chassis construction, brakes, and standards of performance. Of particular value and interest-especially to design engineers working on new car projects-is the section containing detailed design studies on outstanding production sports cars from four manufacturers: Jaguar, Lotus, Mercedes and Porsche. By pointing out design features that are of particular merit with regard to overall performance, this book should also prove highly useful to readers who are choosing and preparing a car for Showroom Stock racing, or who are designing their own sports cars.
