About The Classic Car Book

When I see an Alfa Romeo, I lift my hat. Henry Ford

Few things ignite such reverence as a classic car. With more than 250 iconic models from the 1940s to the 1980s, photographed from every angle, this title is a glorious celebration of the stars in the classic car firmament.

Edited by award-winning automotive journalist Giles Chapman, The Classic Car Book brings you the story of more than 20 great marques, including household names Bentley, Mercedes, Ferrari, Cadillac and Aston Martin. Its lavish photography reveals every detail in close-up of models that range from the 1940s giant two-ton Daimler DE36, which ferried royals about in style, through to sleek Ferraris from the 1980s capable of smashing the 200mph barrier. It puts you in the driving seat of such icons as the Chevrolet Corvette, the Ford Thunderbird, and the Mercedes 300SL and brings you the designers of these amazing machines and the story of their manufacturers.

Whether you dream of owning one of these super-cool cars, or you are a collector already, The Classic Car Book is set to become a treasured favourite.
