4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first effort, 28 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cars Now! (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.
