This is not a book about compression ratios – this is a book about freedom, style, sex, power, motion, color, and design. CARS is about culture and, in many ways, a beautiful and timely swansong to the heyday of an industry that is fast running out of fuel.
Stephen Bayley, award-winning British car journalist, design authority, and self-proclaimed culture guru presents a spectacular, chronological study of achievement in car design — from the 1908 Ford Model T to the 1961 Jaguar E-Type to the 2003 BMW 5 Series. Each car has a story and each makes a statement as to the national character of its country of origin; American flair, German technical supremacy, French chic, English antiquarianism, Japanese ingenuity, Swedish responsibility, and Italian sculpture.
