From leading motoring writers Toby Hagon and Bruce Newton comes the definitive countdown of the greatest, bravest, most iconic and inspired cars in our history.
Packed with behind-the-scenes, under-the-bonnet stories of the social revolutions these cars drove, Kings of the Road also pays tribute to Australia's innovation, courage, eccentricity and love of adventure that is embodied in these 50 iconic cars.
From the 1948 Holden 'Humpy' - the first car manufactured by Aussies for Aussies in Australia - to the GT Falcon that started the blood feud between Holden and Ford. From the first car that crossed the Simpson Desert to the Volkswagen Kombi that redefined rural road trips. From the Repco BT19 race car that won Aussie Jack Brabham the Formula One championship to the Bushmaster driven into war by our troops in Afghanistan. These cars rev the engines of car lovers and patriots alike.
Experience Australia's top 50 Kings of the Road, captured pictorially with iconic artwork, advertising, photography and conceptual designs and insider knowledge and never-before-heard stories from the team behind the bestselling Holden: Our Car. These are the cars that drove Aussie on- and off-road adventures for decades.
