About the book:
Well known motoring writer Andrew Whyte describes the history of 101 famous marques, representing the 101 years of the motor car, from 1885 to 1985 inclusive. All the celebrated names are here: Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Cord, Citroen, Duesenberg, Ferrari, right through to Studebaker, Volkswagen, Volvo and Wolseley. In each case the principal cars are featured together with the people behind the marques, the major engineering achievements, interesting facts and figures, mergers and links with other manufacturers, sporting successes and great drivers. Several of the entries also include a brief chronology outlining the significant events in the company's history.

However, Andrew Whyte not only covers the familiar, well-documented marques that have become household names; other less-known, but nevertheless fascinating companies are also described and illustrated: such intriguing classics as Amedee Bollee, Bitter, DKW, Isotta Fraschini, Miller, Napier, Tatra and Tracta.

The length of each entry varies according to the importance of the marque but, as these are arranged alphabetically, beginning at AC and ending with Wolseley, this carefully researched book makes an ideal reference work as well as a practical and handy encyclopedia of motoring. Packed with well over 200 photographs, many specially taken for the book by a leading motoring photographer, this attractively produced volume will appeal to car enthusiasts and general readers alike. A short introduction puts the marques in perspective and gives a resume of the history of the car and its developments.

Andrew Whyte's book is perfect for car lovers everywhere.
