50 Cars to DriveBook - 2008
A gathering of votes from famous and prestigious drivers such as Carroll Shelby, Bob Bondurant, Sir Stirling Moss, Dan Gurney, and Jay Leno, this book reveals--for the first time--what the professionals list as the best of the best. This is a full-color book that will please anyone who's passionate about driving, even with more mundane transportation. "There are cars," says the author, "and then there are those greater than the sum of their parts." The expert panel picked the top fifty, largely avoiding traditional choices they call simply "fundamental to automotive history." This panel agreed that the Top Five list includes the 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa, the 1913 Mercer Racabout, the 1932-37 Model SJ Dusenberg, the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, and the Maserati Birdcage. Stunning full-color photos complement the passionate text from expert drivers in a book that will rev up the RPMs of many a man (and woman).
