About this title

Synopsis:

In this new and updated edition of Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, master automotive photographer James Mann goes behind the lens once again to bring you even more of history's most astounding racing vehicles.

Even more of the most beautiful and successful Formula 1 race cars in history, presented in a way they have never been seen before.
Formula 1: the pinnacle of motorsports. This is the world's most popular form of racing, featuring the world's greatest drivers competing in the most technologically advanced cars ever created, machines designed and built by some of history's most brilliant engineering minds. For the original edition of Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, master automotive photographer James Mann brought a selection of these spectacular machines into the studio, portraying not just their engineering brilliance, but also their inherent beauty-they are works of art, the fascinating results of Formula 1's mix of competition, creativity, and human ingenuity. Now, in this new and updated edition, Mann has gone behind the lens once again to bring you even more of history's most astounding racing vehicles, from the Alfa Romeo 158 that carried Giuseppe Farina to the first F1 world championship in 1950 all the way through to the present day, with models from Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren, and all of racing's premier Formula 1 engineers. With historical and technological profiles by Formula 1 writer Stuart Codling and insightful commentary from designer Gordon Murray, creator of multiple championship-winning cars, the revised and updated Art of the Formula 1 Race Car continues its tradition as the ultimate homage to the ultimate breed of race car. Discover what Road & Track magazine called "the perfect blend of pictures, analysis and the racing history of these remarkable racing machines."
