4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first effort, 28 Feb. 2012

This review is from: Cars Now!: 1 (Paperback)
Cars Now Volume One is purportedly the first in a regular series of books to review the most notable cars in the world. It is associated with a new and trendy European/USA car magazine called Intersection.
Taschen are premium publishers and this well produced book is packed with fascinating and quirky photos, interesting facts, statistics, performance details and a secret detail about many models.
The reason I did not give it five stars was because of some editing errors (minor spelling mistakes and missing words), factual defects (eg. the maximum speed limit in Slovenia is NOT 25mph but 100kph/62mph; Jaguar cars may have changed their name in 1945 from SS Cars but was founded in 1924), and most annoyingly the fact that most photos do not identify the car model they feature - you always know the make of the car because of the section in which it is reproduced, but not the model (eg. a Lotus is pictured on P279, but there is no way to determine which model).
A solid heavy tome well worth adding to an auto enthusiasts library, and hopefully these minor errors will be corrected in future issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars An oddball world car guide., 29 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Cars Now!: 1 (Paperback)
An excellent book all round from the quality of the paper used to the actual contents. Laid out in an A-Z format given information on the current crop of cars from around the world. Not the norm it must be said there are some really obscure car companies here. For example the Iran Khodro from Iran. The Ferrari's and Lambo's are great to read about but it is discovering the more obscure, low volume car companies that makes this book special. Bring on Vol.2!

Intersection, at least in the UK, seems to have died. So it's good that this book was published before it did. In some ways it's more of the same, at least Intersection as it used to be. Recommended

This review is from: Cars Now!: 1 (Paperback)
Bought for my partner, this is an unusual book as it not only showcases all you need to know about popular cars it also lists obscure ones we've never heard of! Interesting read.
