The annals of motoring history are riddled with heroic failures, duds and disasters – cars that should never have been made or sold, but somehow they were... The World’s Worst Cars takes a detailed but light-hearted look at these motoring tragedies – old and new – and asks: Why did they ever reach the showrooms? What went wrong? Why were they so unreliable, and what kind of person actually bought them?

From the deadly Ford Pinto to rusty Lancias and plastic Nissans, this book features more than 150 of the cars that we love to hate, illustrated with annotated photography and archive images from the car’s heyday.

A larger format edition containing additional text and images is available in some markets.
