The Car Design Yearbook 1 is the first edition of a groundbreaking new annual series that looks at the world's latest concept and production cars. Every year, author Stephen Newbury, concept manager with automotive consultancy Tom Walkinshaw Racing, will review the designs of approximately 150 models, from mass-market brands such as Ford, Peugeot, Volvo, and Honda to the more consciously "designed" niche cars from such manufacturers as Pininfarina and Jaguar.

Clearly organized and designed, The Car Design Yearbook will provide auto and design enthusiasts with a wealth of essential information, including:

* high-quality photographs of exterior and interior styling, as well as engine layout
* clear, accessible writing on the cars' design features, innovations, and influences
* work-in-progress sketches to explain the evolution of designs
* tables of key performance criteria and technical data
* biographies of the designers who have made the greatest contributions during the year

The Car Design Yearbook 1 is the indispensable reference guide for both professional and amateur automotive and design enthusiasts everywhere.
