In just one hundred years the motor car has evolved from being an object of derision and hostility to become an essential part of everyday life. Following the first uncertain attempts with steam powered vehicles it was the invention of the internal combustion engine which led to the debut of the car as we know it today. In the early years of the 20th Century factories sprang up in their hundreds, many to disappear without trace, and other to live on to become renowned for quality of their cars. Hispano-Suiza, Bugatti and Duesenberg were some of the names to be conjured during this period. The history of the car cannot be viewed in isolation from that of motor sport which has provided the impetus for many of the innovations and technical develpoments we now take for granted. One Hundred Years of the Motor Car details the history of rallying and motor racing in all its aspects. A concluding section to this part of the book examines the elements which have made the modern car possible. The second part of the book is a gazetteer of the world's car manufacturers and the historical text is illustrated with black and white photographs of every model made by each manufacture. 280pp with black and white and coloured drawings.
