Velocity: Supercar Revolution

Cars to Dream About

By John Lamm

Velocity: Supercar Revolution by John Lamm

Even if you’ll never be able to feel the excitement of test driving an automobile with a $100,000 price sticker, this fat, glossy book ought to help provide the same thrill vicariously. Velocity: Supercar Revolution, written by Road & Track editor-at-large John Lamm, explains the modern history of the world’s wildest sports cars. The book documents iconic speedsters in three chronologically ordered sections, starting in 1967 with the Lamborghini Miura and ending with today’s Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. Lamm, with humor, insight and a vast storehouse of knowledge, describes 33 models in extensive detail. Each car is displayed with photographs that will tempt you to tear them out and pin to your wall. Throughout the book are also comments from famed late night talk show host and car nut Jay Leno (who just happens to own many of the supercars described, including his favorite, the McLaren F1). Leno adds amusing and often crotchety second opinions. These elite vehicles have been making kids and adults go ga-ga since the 1960s, and this book ensures future generations will, too.
