Ever since Karl Benz first powered up his Patent-Motorwagen in 1885, man has salivated and swooned over automobiles. And none more so than the motoring fanatics at Top Gear, who have test-driven, critiqued and worshipped some of the best cars in motoring history. While many have fallen short of Top Gear's exacting standards, others have triumphed, proving so damn cool they're SubZero.

In this unique bible of motoring coolness, Top Gear's Matt Master recounts the stories behind history's greatest cars, from pre-war vintage motors to the supercars of the future, pairing stunning Top Gear photography and rarely seen archive photographs with expert commentary. He'll break down the technology behind these incredible machines and place each car in the context of its time, with anecdotes and analysis that explain just what's so cool about each one.

From the quintessential British luxury of the Bentley Brooklands to the Italian sex appeal of the Bizzarini Strada, the old Hollywood glamour of the Chrysler Airflow to the futuristic lines of the Aston Martin Bulldog via Steve McQueen's Ford Mustang and James Dean's doomed Porsche Spyder, this will be social history as much as car worship.

The only book like it on the market, this is the evolution of cool, Top Gear-style; the definitive guide to the undisputed coolest cars on the planet.
