Overview

Sports cars for millionaires, sports cars for the millions-a multi-faceted spectrum unfolds here on 440 fascinating pages: an exciting range encompassing everything from the MGB, the "quota-king" with 513,272 cars sold, to the Jaguar XK SS, of which just 16 were sold worldwide. Hartmut Lehbrink describes a "rolling social pyramid" in his text. The specifications of the cars' bodies, motors, and overall looks vary accordingly: some modest, some exuding power, some understated, some opulent. The spirit of the British sports car tradition is reflected in the aesthetics of Schlegelmilch's photography and in Lehbrink's knowledgeable text. Both have a feel for the character and charisma of the vehicles, the passion and dedication of those who developed them, as well as the success story of the makes and models-information presented from its most appealing side.
