From technologically stunning machines to the plain weird and wonderful, this illustrated book reveals 500 of the most striking and innovative prototype cars produced by car manufacturers and independent designers.
Here is a pictorial insight into how the motor industry strives to predict, and indeed shape, the future, while reflecting contemporary moods and fashions. Concept cars covered in the book span nearly 100 years of automotive history from the 1914 Alfa Romeo 40-60HP aerodynamic concept by Castagna to the stunning modern-day designs that appeared at the 2002 Geneva Salon and Detroit Motor Show.
The book includes: • Brief descriptions and specifications and a photograph for each of the 500 beautiful and bizarre concepts • A panoramic vision of many of the prototypes developed during the first half of the 20th century up to 1952 • A selection of eight significant models a year, from 1952, chosen at random • An in-depth look at a particular project that captured the mood of the day, for every other year from 1952 to 2002
