Description

A beautifully illustrative history of the world's most iconic and popular cars of all time. Perfect for children and adult motoring fans alike!

Cars do so much more than get us from A to B: they are vehicles of beauty that allow drivers to determine their own destination. Trace their extraordinary history in this gorgeously illustrated guide, from Benz's first motor wagon to the jet-propelled ThrustSSC. Along the way, discover how the social upheavals of the past 140 years diverted the car's journey: two world wars, economic crashes, the digital revolution and more. Finally, explore the fantastical cars that have been imagined in film and the incredible vehicles that await us in the future.

If you liked The Car Book , Fifty Cars that Changed the World and Car Science , you'll love The Story of the Car .

Written by acclaimed motor expert Giles Chapman, and beautifully illustrated by the Us Now design studio, this is a visual treat for anyone who is fascinated by cars.

The Story of the Car is the start of a groundbreaking series of stunning books on the social history of transport, with The Story of Flight and The Story of Space Travel to follow.
