A car enthusiast's dream, this ultimate history of the car takes you on a trail-blazing road trip through motoring history, featuring over 1,200 images of the world's coolest cars, engines, and marques.

From the earliest "road carriages" of the 1880s to the quad-turbocharged Bugatti Veyron, cars have evolved at an extraordinary pace over the past 130 years. Discover the people, machines, and the magic that created the perfect blend of art and engineering to turn brands such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, and Cadillac into household names.

The Car Book showcases the most important marques and models in luscious detail, organized in categories such as sports cars, convertibles, and city compacts. It features jawdropping photographic tours of some of the most iconic cars from each era such as the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Ford Model T, Lamborghini Countach, and Ferrari F40, with cross-sections of key engines that explore the driving force behind them.

The Car Book is an iconic celebration of automotive design and motoring history - and the perfect gift for car lovers of all ages.
