about this item

From super cars such as the Bugatti Veyron to the luxury Bentley, Mercedes and BMW, this series looks at the most incredible cars in existence!

Top Marques: SUVs and Off-Roaders looks at the history of SUVs, and at some of the most cutting-edge 4x4 vehicles around, from the Porsche Cayenne to the Range Rover SDV8, the Nissan Navara, the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the Jeep Wrangler and the Mercedes Unimog.

A 'High Spec' panel on every spread details some of the jaw-dropping features of these cars, and a 'Fast and Furious' feature explains the basic science behind how prestige cars perform and are powered, such as G-force, combustion, friction, acceleration, and aerodynamics. Finally, discover amazing 'Turbo Facts' such as, for example, why a F1 car could drive on the ceiling!

Incredible, full-bleed photographs and punchy, fact-filled text make this the perfect series for all car fanatics aged 7 and above.

Racing cars are just some of the prestige cars around. Why not learn about more, in the other books in the series: Top Marques: Racing Cars, Top Marques: Luxury Cars and Top Marques: Supercars.
