Grimsdale’s love letter to the sexy, dynamic British vehicles produced in the Swinging Sixties is a fabulously entertaining race through the mavericks and revolutionaries who propelled the nation’s automotive industry onto the tracks and billboards of the world. From the Mini to the Aston Martin, this is a richly nostalgic celebration of a bygone age.
