Description

Sports cars – to be driven open at all times, even when the sun does not shine – are as much a British icon as the black London taxi, the red telephone box, the Queen and Big Ben. In a country in which the sun only shines for a few days of the year, there has for many years been a long tradition of open sports cars, which have made fortunes for some of the great names in motoring history. This book recounts the sports car’s evolution, from their pioneering origins right through to today. Shoulder to shoulder with motoring legends like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Triumph, Morgan and MG stand the small artisans and less well-known constructors. One hundred of their key models are described with a brief text and a technical specification, all illustrated with an enormous selection of photographs. It is an ideal book for those who want a complete panorama of this fascinating motoring typology.
