Book Synopsis

Slip off the handbrake and take a spin through the history of motoring - from the first horseless carriages to the rush of modern-day motorsport.

Find out everything you need to know about motoring from 1895 to the present day. Journey through motoring history with Drive and explore the twists and turns of how the motorcar has shaped the modern world over the last century.

Speed through personal accounts of motoring throughout the years and discover exciting new facts about the world's most famous racing events.

From the first service stations to the latest fuel cell, and packed full of stunning photography of social artifacts and of the cars themselves, Drive is the perfect visual guide for every car lover.


Past praise for Classic Car
[T]his is a book to savor, to be pored over time and again. - Booklist, starred review

Past praise for Car
Definitive' is an ambitious goal, but one this hefty book tackles with élan-perhaps the way a 1965 Gordon-Keeble might tackle a winding country road. - The New York Times
