Description

Although the history of the car stretches for a period only slightly longer than 100 years, it is nevertheless an area with many little-known gems waiting to be uncovered. This book is an alternative look at automotive history, celebrating the nonconformist spirit and a radical approach to designing cars. Based on documented facts, this book also contains dialogues and personal details from some of the most innovative engineers of the last century, helping the reader understand how passion and restlessness drive progress in car manufacturing.  Many inventions that we tend to attribute to the contemporary car giants were in fact made many years ago, and few can remember the names of those talented people that created them. This book gives them due credit, and proves that a dream always wins.

The author

Arvid Linde worked as a car journalist for more than 10 years before moving to the UK from Latvia. He now edits electriccarnews.co.uk website, where he tries to unravel the question of whether the electric car is the answer to the green motoring needs of the 21st century, or just another government gimmick.
