Though slightly shorter this year, this compendium still delivers a fascinating, categorized assortment of car designs. Informed and accessible commentary, paired with hundreds of engaging pictures, concisely profile over 100 of the latest concept and production cars. Along with examining global trends in car manufacturing and design, the book delves into the careers of leading car designers Gerry McGovern, Peter Schreyer and Frank Stephenson. Of particular interest in this edition are cars powered by alternative propulsion, such as Ford’s Airstream, as well as the recent innovations in using glass for cars like the Saab Aero-X and Renault Zoé. This book will entertain and educate any car enthusiast.
