Overview

Classic cars that won fame in both Grand Prix and Indy-style racing from the early days of racing to the present include Duesenberg, Offenhauser, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Bugatti, Ferrari, Alfa-Romeo, Porsche, and many others. This big, handsome book shows them in highly detailed illustrations.

Magnificent, large-scale graphics include illustrations of Supreme Machines in action, as well as exploded diagrammatic art showing fascinating details of design and construction. Both Supreme Machines books give young readers exciting glimpses into twentieth-century technology and the role technology has played in history. Captioned and labeled illustrations explain how each Supreme Machine works. The book's main text tells the story behind the machine-why it was first conceived, and how it was used. Illustrations and diagrams are beautifully rendered and technically accurate.
