Organized in chronological order and subdivided into touring, sport cars, and Formula One single-seaters, each design has its own technical specification and a text that details the principle engineering and sports successes. The work is complemented by a listing detailing all the key victories in more than 50 years of racing.--From publisher description.

This is a delightful action-packed adventure story that would appeal to middle-aged to older men and women. It is a story about a physician forced into early retirement who decides to spend his days traveling across the country in a brand new Blue Peterbilt Model 387 truck. The story encompasses his experience hauling a truckload of high-end special edition sports cars while visiting various truck-stop diners in search of the perfect chicken fried steak. Unaware that the cars are stolen and contain hidden counterfeit money as well as stolen priceless coins from a museum in Germany, the good doctor finds himself and his fellow driver fighting off criminals, petty thieves, and other odd characters along the way.
Die Liege von Le Corbusier, das Radio von Rams, der Stuhl von Eames – Designer machen Dinge zu Kultobjekten und werden selbst zu Ikonen. Aber wer weiß, welches Coupé von Frua, welche Limousine von Engel, welcher Kombi von Opron designed wurden? Automobildesign galt lange als anonym, die Stylisten standen im Schatten der Designwahrnehmung, obwohl ihre Entwürfe millionenfach auf den Straßen anzutreffen sind. Dieses reich bebilderte Buch zeichnet die Entstehung eines Berufszweigs nach und verfolgt die Entwicklung des Automobildesigns: in einer umfassenden Einführung sowie anhand der Arbeitsbiografien von über 200 ausgewählten Designerinnen und Designern, die zwischen 1900 und 2000 in den USA, Europa und Japan dem Automobil in vielfältigen Produkten eine Form gegeben haben.
