A lavishly illustrated history of the automobile - the marques, the machines, and the magic.

From the first motor cars to today's supercars and environmentally-friendly electric models, this is the ultimate book about the history of the car.

Packed with stunning photography, and featuring more than 2,000 cars, The Car Book shows you how cars have evolved around the world over the last 130 years, and their impact on society as objects of curiosity, symbols of status and luxury, and items of necessity.

Extensive catalogues showcase the most important marques and models, organized in categories such as sports cars, convertibles, and city compacts. The book also features virtual photographic tours of some of the most iconic cars from each era, such as the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Ford Model T, Lamborghini Countach, and McLaren Speedtail, while cross-sections of key engines explore the driving force behind them. Lavishly illustrated feature spreads detail the stories of the individuals, machines, and visionary ideas that helped create the car world's most famous marques and made brands such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, and Cadillac household names.

If you love cars, then you'll love The Car Book. It is simply a must-have title for all motoring enthusiasts.
