There are few subjects that evoke such passion as the history of classic cars. The second-hand classic car market is a booming multi-million-pound industry in its own right, so it is no surprise that this subject has proved to be a perennial seller of illustrated books.

Seizing on this widespread popularity, Classic Cars represents a fresh and informative approach to the subject. In handy pocket-sized form it chronicles 150 of the greatest cars from all over the world from the birth of the mass produced vehicle – Henry Ford’s Model T in 1908 - through the classic period of German manufacturing, and climaxing with the golden post-war era, typified by lavish styles and pink Cadillacs. Each of the 75 cars in the book is dissected over two spreads. The first of which features stunning cut-out photography of the vehicle from a variety of angles, complete with detailed annotations; the second explores the history of the car, aspects of its design and revolutionary features. For the real enthusiast there is a comprehensive specification box containing every fact and figure imaginable, from engine size and tyre measurements to top speed, weight, transmission and steering.
