Fast, powerful cars with aggressive styling, head-turning looks and rumbling exhaust notes are the ultimate street performers, and have been immortalised over the years by film heroes such as Steve McQueen in Bullitt. Muscle Cars celebrates the best of these strutting machines, providing a detailed look at over 60 great street cars from around the world, past and present. All the great marques are covered, including the classic American muscle machines from Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, Buick and Chrysler, as well as the best from Jaguar, Porsche, Ford (UK), Nissan and Subaru.
Illustrated with specially commissioned photography, each car is examined from all angles in close-up detail. Detailed specifications are provided for each machine, which include all the performance statistics, engine type, transmission, chassis, special features, running gear and dimensions. The book also takes a close look under the bonnet, and examines the frame and suspension, as well as the design of the engine. Finally, the book follows the production milestones in each car’s life, and marks refinements and developments in styling and performance.
Packed with information and great photos, this lively book is a must for all lovers of these roaring, tyre-smoking machines.
