From the cover: From the Alfa Romeo spider to Lamborghinis Diablo; from the sensational Chevrolet Corvette to the stream-lined Toyota Celica, here is the ultimate history of cars manufactured since 1976, plus those dream and futuristic cars that were marvels of car design, even though they never made it into production.
The Encyclopedia of Dream Cars is the modern guide to the automobile. This comprehensive visual reference shows every important marque from A-Z, highlighting some of the most significant and beautiful cars of the century: the Jaguar XJ 220, the McLaren F1, the Pontiac Firebird and the Lotus Esprit. Detailed descriptions, history and technical information accompany every entry, making this the most authoritative and comprehensive guide to the contemporary classic car.
In addition to presenting the newest cars, this book also highlights the worlds dream cars that were built as showcases but were never mass-produced. From the design houses of Bertone, Ghia, Ital Design, Ogle and Pininfarina, these dream cars are at the very cutting edge of car design: futuristic models that were deemed too daring, too brash or too expensive to be marketable, but which pay tribute to the imagination and drive of car designers today.
With over 900 stunning images of the cars, this book is a definitive gallery of classic and dream cars. It is a decisive reference for every enthusiast, every collector and lover of the automobile.
