Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I defy any car enthusiast to pick up this glorious book without losing half a day idly flicking through it… this encyclopaedia of modern motors is accessible, a great read and a perfect Christmas stocking filler. — Daily Mail

It's a heavyweight, full colour encyclopaedia featuring 1,500 illustrations on 540 beautifully written pages', a 'glorious book for life' &mdash The Telegraph

The book contains some 1500 images and even random rifling through the pages will entertain you for hours… being a European publication with a global scope, the entertainment -and envy - quotient will be especially high for US readers… who will have occasion to groan yet again at the sight of mouthwatering, DOT-unencumbered examples of automotive finery that will never make it to these shores — Speed Readers

Absolutely cram-packed with information about the car world during the first decade or so of the new millennium… From the Fiat 500 to Franco, you'll find them all here, and it's all presented in a handy colour-coded format, to make what you're looking for easy to find. — Evo Magazine
