A great book, great photos 19 Mar. 2012
By ChuckG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this book. The photography is terrific and the text, while not much, is interesting to read, though I don't think you'd really buy it for the text because it's so gorgeous to look at. I couldn't have asked for a better book on supercars, since it contains many of my favorite supercars which are often ignored, such as the BMW M1, Aston DB4GT Zagato, Maserati MC12 and Bizzarrini Strada. I think the Ariel Atom was unnecessary, perhaps replaced with the Bugatti EB110, Jaguar XKSS or Ferrari F50, but still it's a great book.
Everything from vintage to modern 29 Mar. 2015
By C.H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a must for ANY supercar enthusiast! You will find everything from Vintage Supercars to Modern Supercars. One of the cars in the book is the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, thought by some to be the first supercar, with a top speed of 161 mph. Another, the Ferrari F40, was the first road car with a top speed over 200 mph--201 mph, to be exact. Also in the book is the 253 mph Bugatti Veyron. The greatest car in the world.

Excellent book!

The pictures (most of the book is pictures) are exquisite and highly professional, And the writing can be very intellectual (like they're talking about architecture). For anyone truly appreciates beauty and passion behind some of history's most beautiful supercars this is a must have.

You could easily mix this book in others covering art or design at the poshest function. It will fool and lure many critics that normally snub the work as low classe.
